A Lancaster Amish Home for Jacob

Rachel Stoltzfus has put out the first two books in her Lancaster Amish Home for Jacob series. It follows the misadventures of Jacob, a troubled inner city youth and the Masts, an Amish family living in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In book 1, we meet Jacob Marshall who is in trouble with the police and on the verge of being jailed. A Lancaster Amish Home for Jacob Will orphaned teen Jacob Marshall overcome his troubled past and find love and acceptance in Lancaster County?  When orphaned Philadelphia teen Jacob Marshall gets in trouble with the police, he has two options - go to juvenile detention or work on a farm outside of the city. But when he chooses the latter, Jacob gets more than he bargained for as he struggles to find his place in an Old Order Amish community in Lancaster County and with Thomas Mast, the straight laced Amish family man who is charged with keeping Jacob in line. Caught between the light and dark, will Jacob be able to face his demons and put his past behind him, or will his pain prove stronger than the faith of the Amish community he's grown to love? A Lancaster Amish Prayer for Jacob Will orphaned teen Jacob Marshall overcome his troubled past and find love and acceptance in Lancaster County? Abandoned Philadelphia teen Jacob Marshall continues to struggle to find his place in the Old Order Amish community in Lancaster County but with caring and love of Thomas and Dorothy Mast, he begins to relax into his new home and routine. Just as he begins to feel like family, his long, lost mother shows up and attempts to win him back. Will he chose to stay go with his biological mom back to the Englisch world that treated him so poorly or stay with his new Amish family?
