Item description for Amish Firefighter by Laura Hilton...Overview
<center><b><i>A Beautiful Young Woman Banished from Home</b></i></center>
Abigail Stutzman thought it was bad enough being dropped at the nearest bus station and sent to live several states away with some relatives she'd never heard about, much less met. But now, just a week after her arrival in Jamesport, Missouri, she finds herself at the scene of a barn fire. An intentional barn fire. And all fingers are pointed at her. She's desperate to prove her innocence and protect her reputation, but nobody's making that easy to do. And God certainly doesn't seem willing to help.
<center><b><i>A Brave Firefighter with an Agenda of His Own</b></i></center>
Sam Miller is in the process of turning over a new leaf. Determined to atone for the follies of his past, he is a volunteer firefighter, an EMT, and a doctor-in-training. When local barn fires escalate, everyone suspects arson. And since the Miller family are among the victims, no one is more determined to see the perpetrators brought to justice than Sam.
<center><b><i>A Kindled Flame Neither One Could Have Anticipated</b></i></center>
When their paths first cross, at the site of a barn burning, the emotional intensity rivals the warmth of the flames. Soon, they must decide whether this fire is one they should feed or extinguish. And they'll discover that the truth can prove more dangerous than a blazing inferno.

|A Page turner, 5 Stars! Sep 17, 2016|
|"The Amish Firefighter" by author Laura V. Hilton is a 278 page Christian Amish suspenseful fiction book. This exceptional novel is published by Whitaker House. The intriguing cover shows the picture of a firefighter in the background surrounded by flames with the back of an Amish girl in the foreground. Her bonnet and purple Amish dress are strikingly different than the rest of the cover.|
I have read many of author Hilton's wonderful books and this one does not disappoint. To begin with, I had never heard of an Amish firefighter. Most Amish men in books are farmers, carpenters, or shopkeepers. This storyline was different. It was well imagined and written with vivid characters and descriptions. Her characters are well rounded with personalities, dreams, and flaws. The author has the Amish dialogue down pat and conversation flows smoothly between her characters. The descriptive way she writes picks me up and puts me down in the middle of the Amish community among a bunch of new friends. I was immediately invested in the story as I began reading.
This is the tale of Abigail and Sam. She has been sent to live with her aunt. He is an Amish firefighter. He is able to do this because he has not yet been baptized. This story is one that teaches many lessons. It teaches to have trust and faith in God. The author broaches the tough subjects of secrets (when or when not to keep them), forgiveness, misunderstandings, family relationships, second chances and many more. There are Christian lessons taught in this novel as well as just providing a great story.
I would highly recommend this book. It is a wonderful Amish story full of inspiration, romance, twists, suspense, and information on the Amish. Any fiction reader would enjoy it. I rated it a 5 out of 5 stars. A copy of the book was provided by The Book Club Network for my honest review.
|Top-Notch Writing and Depth! Aug 30, 2016|
|‘The Amish Firefighter’ is outstanding! The author’s writing captivates this reader, showing me how to live as a Christian in a world where there seem to be no absolutes, and introducing characters with tremendous depth. This is only the second novel I’ve read by this author, and I am definitely a fan!|
This novel includes the terrible pain of feelings of betrayal, not only by a mother and boyfriend but seemingly by the Lord Himself, unfounded accusations, fear, second chances, and ultimately a stronger walk with the Lord, healing relationships, and the incredible love of a mother for her daughter. I appreciated seeing the author’s demonstration of the love of God, as well as how understanding one little word in scripture can change one’s faith and life, such as the word ‘whosoever’.
Abigail had been left at the bus station to stay with family members she had never met, an aunt and uncle whose three teen daughters had been killed in a buggy accident the year before. Her widowed mother had recently remarried, and her new husband had several children including Mark, the boy that Abigail had been seeing. Abigail thought it was because her mother was so busy caring for her new family and didn’t have room for her. She didn’t know why Mark rejected her, only that her stepfather caught them kissing before she was sent off.
Abigail had little success making friends at her new school except for one teen who was kind of fun – until leaving Abby alone in a burning barn. Abigail rang the bell alerting the family and neighbors to the need for a fire brigade, and was caught by a firefighter. A volunteer Amish fire fighter, who believed she started the fire and might be responsible for the several barn fires among Amish neighbors. Sam had his own past to live down; he now believed in the Lord and was thankful for every bit of grace he freely received. Sam was in tune with the voice of the Lord, and (almost) always listened. Yet Sam called Abigail ‘fire-lighter’.
The author gives her characters everything needed to be engaging and realistic. I like seeing characters make the same mistakes that I do and be determined to do what is necessary when the consequences fall. I like Sam and Abigail as respects the challenges they each face. At first I thought Abigail was too emotional about the changes in her life especially in light of all that had occurred in the lives of her aunt and uncle, but had to consider her background and her heart. Her aunt and uncle, Sam’s family members and friends at the church were realistic, each contributing from their unique gifts.
The plot was as involved as life can sometimes be. Watching Sam and Abigail respond to the stressors and consequences in their lives and how they do – or do not – focus on the Lord as their first response can mirror our lives. For Abigail to do so in light of trying to find out who the arsonist is to clear herself of arson before she is harmed by the real bad guy/ gal was a lot for a sheltered teen. Plot twists heighten the suspense, making this novel riveting with not only showing a mystery to solve, but also giving the characters and readers spiritual lessons to consider. I highly recommend this novel, especially to older teens and adults of any age who appreciate Christian suspense in the setting of an Amish community.

|Fictional Amish Story Aug 7, 2016|
|I loved this book. Laura Hilton has a writing style that puts you in the story. A real page turner. Did not want to put it down. Well developed and in depth characters with a great story line. |
Abigail Stutzman has been banished from her family and home and wonders why. What did she do? Her family just left her at the bus station to go to live with relatives she does not even know in Missouri. When she arrives she is befriended by Miranda who runs with the wrong crowd, There is a suspicious fire in an Amish barn and Abigail is suspected of setting the fire especially when more fires occur. She feels that God does not love her due to situation she is in.
Sam Miller a firefighter is trying to turn his life around and atone for his past mistakes. He thinks Abigail is setting the fires. He has not joined the Amish Church and is trying to decide if he wants to live as a Amish man or an Englischer.
The sparks from the fires are not the only sparks flying as Abigail and Sam start to have feelings for each other.
I love the spiritual aspect of the story. God's love, the romance the mystery, a family secret, forgiveness and so much more.
Laura is a talented and gifted writer. I love reading her books and hope to read more in The Amish of Jamesport series in the future.. I highly recommend The Amish Firefighter.

|Hidden Family Secrets Jul 14, 2016|
|The idea of an Amish Firefighter intrigued me. I never knew they could hold this occupation, although Sam had not been baptized into the Amish church yet. He was also an EMT and a paramedic-in-training. Also unknown to me. He meets the main female character Abigail, when he finds her in his family's barn as it's burning to the ground with her standing right in the middle of it. She claims she's innocent although she's found another time or two under similar circumstances.|
I really felt sorry for Abigail. She had been rejected by her mom and stepdad, not to mention her fiancé. Put on a bus with just the clothes on her back and sent to relatives she knew nothing about, Abigail felt unwanted and unloved by those she was closest to.
I was a little perplexed by the fast relationship between Abigail and Sam. And so many secrets that had been hidden for years were still taking a while to be told to those that needed to know the most. I may be slow but I had a hard time figuring out the family relations that kept Abigail from staying with her mom. She seemingly had a hard hearted stepfather.
But I loved the turning to God, the prayers spoken, and the grace and forgiveness given to the confessions of sin spoken to those that had been sinned against.
I had always wondered why the Amish prayed silent prayers instead of praying them out loud. This was touched on in this book. They seem to feel it's vain to speak them out loud.
I, on the other hand, think it helps others to hear someone pray out earnestly to God in all circumstances and for all different reasons.
I was given this book from the publisher through Bookfun for my honest opinion, which I have given.
|Blazing Amish Fiction Jun 22, 2016|
|The Amish Firefighter by author Laura V. Hilton is as bold as the flames on the cover. In the past, Amish fiction has been hit or miss with me, but lately they have been hits and this one is up there with the best of them. This is a story that deals with multi-generational family secrets and how they still affect even the young. This is a story about past sin before redemption and consequences of said sins after redemption. I liked how this story showed that even before knowing God, there are rules, and like the ones our parents give us that ultimately are meant to protect us. This is Amish yes, this is about forgiveness of sins, and this story is not at all preachy in any way. The Amish Firefighter is about a mystery of burning barns that is affecting a town, interwoven with a fiery passion and pure love of a young couple who have a simple faith in God and are getting to know each other. Not only that, but I enjoyed reading and getting to know the Amish phrases that were sprinkled throughout. I will definitely be reading more by Laura V. Hilton. My thanks go to Celebrate Lit for providing me with a copy for an honest review. The opinions are all mine.|

|MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK|
Abigail Stutzman had no idea why she was dumped at a bus station with a ticket to an aunt and uncle's house she didn't even know she had. What was wrong with her mamm, why did she allow this to happen to her? And it seemed like her aunt and uncle and everyone else in her new community was silent on the issue as well. What made things even worse for Abby is her new friends seem to leave her on a trail of burned down barns. Nothing happening in her life made sense to Abbi anymore.
Poor Abby, I can not imagine what it would be like to be left at a bus station and sent to someone I didn't even know! Amish sometimes have a strange way of handing situations. One thing about it, Even though Abby didn't know her aunt and uncle, they were happy to meet their new niece, and was glad to have her in their home. She became like a daughter to them. But the fires were a puzzle. And firefighter Sam Miller couldn't figure it out either. But Abby had to be the one setting the fires, wasn't she? As Sam and Abby spend more and more time together, sparks of another kind start flying, and the fire between these two characters may not be so easy to put out.
I love Laura Hilton's Amish stories so much. She always has a little different twist to her stories, involving Englischers in such a way that it seems like there is no logical fix to the situations, but in the end, Ms. Hilton weaves the stories together to make a perfect and wonderful ending. And so it was with The Amish Firefighter. This was truly a story of unveiled secrets, forgiveness, redemption and grace in the lives of these characters. I love and appreciate the way Ms. Hilton so vividly tells the story of God's redeeming love to those who as for His forgiveness. I love, love this story, and I am looking forward for more from these Jamesport, Missouri characters.

|Suspenseful and Captivating May 12, 2016|
|This is another outstanding book from a very gifted author. I loved this book so much, I read it in one day. Yes it is that good. It is not the typical feel good Amish story where everyone is happy and helps out. What it is though is a very intriguing book filled with shunning, accusations, mystery and an unforgettable story . Ms. Hilton delivers a very captivating story of characters that came to life. |
Abigail has for some reason been sent to her aunt and uncles place to live. What would it feel like to one day wake up and be told you are no longer welcomed at your home? She is very confused by this, but of course obeys her family . She somehow gets mixed up with a group from the new town that seem to have trouble follow them wherever they go. Unfortunately one night while out with her friends, Abigail is somehow accused of a barn fire. There have been a rash of these devastating fires in the town and well you know the saying, Being at the wrong place at the wrong time. " How will Abigail convince a town that she just moved to that she is innocent of the fire?
Perhaps Sam can be of some assistance to her. He is a firefighter who seems to be positive that Abigail had something to do with it. I loved how the author wrote such strong independent characters who compliment each other well. As they get to know each other, you can feel the attraction come to life with gentle words of affection and a concern for each other's well being . Are there secrets in the town that could explain why Abigail was sent there? Does Sam have a past that he doesn't want anyone to know about? Well as the saying goes, " Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive ."
The book was outstanding and I love the Amish words and their meaning at the beginning of the book. The book captures the true meaning of forgiveness, intrigue and a bit of romance that keeps readers glued to the story.
I received a copy of this book The BookClub Network for an honest review.
|The Amish Fire Fighter May 9, 2016|
|The Amish Firefighter by Laura V. Hilton |
Always fascinated by the job firefighters do and hope to learn more about that in this book.
Book starts out with a gloassary of Amish terms used-this will be helpful to reference when the words are used in the book.
Abigail Stutzman is trying to follow her new friend Mirancda and she discovers the barn they were in is on fire. She hopes to put it out but she stumbles and falls on the ground herself.
Sam Miller is an EMT and volunteer fire fighter when he runs into Abigail and assumes she started the fire. They alert others and both help to put the fire out as she tries to escape but Sam finds her and so does his father. Lots of action. Bit hard to keep track of all the characters til you realize their connection.
He tells Sam not to accuse her ... he does find out more details of the night of the fire while they are having a snack at McDonalds while waiting for his beau to finish her shopping. We learn more about why she's at her aunts house and not at her house in Ohio and his friendship with PJ.
Interested to hear the talk of a real American teen, the slang used and how foreign it sounds to the Amish. Then again some of their words are foreign to us-Americans.
Also what goes on at the church service, during and after. Shame she fell and ended up in the ER where she found out more news from home. She and Sammy had talked about how everybody in town knew she'd be there, at least a month before she even arrived. She's told to trust her mother but nobody will explain what happened.
Just when things are going well with them both, they like each other, events are brought to the forefront and you wonder if they can ever get past them...prayers from everybody to help overcome the hurt and shame..

|Great Book May 6, 2016|
|The Amish Firefighter is written by Laura V. Hilton is the story of Abigail Stutzman and Sam Miller. Abigail grew up thinking she had no family but her parents. Her father died and her mother remarried the father of her boyfriend. One day her step father put her on the bus with no explanation and with just the closes she is wearing. He sends her to live with her aunt and uncle that she never knew about. She finds out her parents kept a lot of secrets from her including letting her know her extended family. She becomes friends with a an Englischer and quickly finds herself set up as the suspect of fires.|
Sam Miller is living the Englisch life and has not made a commitment to the Amish church. He is going to school to be a paramedic, driving a car, dating an Englisch girl and volunteers as a firefighter and an EMT. He comes home just in time to see his father’s barn is on fire and finds Abigail in the barn. He automatically accuses her of starting the fires.
This is a really good story about family, faith and forgiveness as well as knowing when God is talking to you and listening to Him. The story is so well written with so much happening it was hard to put down. Laura V Hilton is a new author to me, I will be watching for her other books.

|More Suspense May 4, 2016|
|How would you feel if your family took you to a bus station with nothing but the clothes on your back and left you? Sure you have a ticket but that takes you to a family and a community that you have never visited. Abigail Stutzman finds herself in just this predicament. She has never been to Jamesport and doesn't know her Aunt and Uncle. Just a week after her arrival she is accused of setting barn fires in the community. What is she to do?|
Sam Miller caught the Fire starter or so he thinks. Determined to turn over a new leaf, he is an Amish firefighter, an EMT and a doctor to be. Catching the new girl at his family's barn fire, Sam doesn't quite believe that she is really the one. But could she be the one for him?
Sparks between Abigail and Sam are evident from the start. Will they be able to overcome all of the past turmoils and controversies? Will the real fire starter be found before more barns burn?
This is not your typical Amish story. I love how Laura Hilton adds just enough suspense and mystery to keep the reader turning the page. I really wanted to yell at some of the characters about how they handled the whole situation. The story was one I had not expected since the Amish try to stay away from the English world and the sins within. I look forward to reading more of Ms. Hilton's books in the future. I received a copy through Bookfun in exchange for my honest review.
