A story animal lovers will enjoy. — KIRKUS REVIEWSOn the Amish farm where he lives and works with his family, ten-year-old Simeon Zook hears and feels things other people miss — things like the quiet sounds of birds and animals, or even the subtle sense that something is not quite right. It is just that sort of unease that draws him out to the barn one night, the night he stumbles upon the glare of a stranger’s flashlight and a sudden crackling blaze. With insight into a child’s inner struggles and the nuances of Amish traditions, Cathryn Clinton tells a coming-of-age story of family, loyalty, and faith in the face of fear and prejudice — and the enduring strength of one boy’s dreams.
