Who can Rebekah trust
when the line between English and Amish becomes blurred?
 
An Amish Settlement. An
English stranger. The Blizzard of 1888.
 
Rebekah’s
mother, Elnora Stoll, is the finest quilter in all of Gasthof Village
but it seems Rebekah has inherited none of her skill.
A
sweet and gentle love blossoms between Rebekah Stoll and her
childhood friend Joseph Graber, despite attempts by her saucy
nemesis, Katie Knepp, to sway the young man’s affections her way.
When Joseph hints at the promise of forever, Rebekah is positive she
should say yes to his proposal – until a mysterious English stranger
shows up at her homestead and sets everything she thought she knew
about her world on end.

“Ma?”

Rebekah slid her legs over the side of her bed, easing them down until her feet met the hardwood floor. Her father had laid this floor expertly in just a few days’ time, or so she’d heard tale.

Shards of pain sparked up her leg from her bad foot, making her stomach turn over. She choked on the yell that strangled in her throat as the rest of her body joined her feet on the floor. Tears blurred her wobbly vision.

A strained groan came from the direction of her parent’s room.

Rebekah shook the foggy stars from her head.

“Standing up isn’t really an option,” she reasoned as she sat on the chilled floor that had moments before been her ally. She flexed her multi-hued ankle. “Nope, certainly not an option.”

A series of pants echoed in the dark hallway.

“I’m coming, Ma.”

Ignoring the seeping dankness, she stretched out on the floor in her thin nightgown, Rebekah pulling herself along the smooth boards with her hands. She slithered to the doorway like a snake through the grass.

Rebekah managed to navigate around the doorframe only to knock her head on something stationary that shouldn’t be there. “Ow!”

Her mother’s labored breathing drew Rebekah’s attention from her own sudden pain.

“Rebekah,” she rasped. She seemed completely oblivious to the fact that Rebekah’s head just met her nose. Hard.

“Ma, are you okay?” The absurdity of that question filled the air. Of course her pregnant mother, lying here alone in the early morning darkness, was not okay.

“The baby,” she started.

Rebekah didn’t wait for her to finish. She scurried to her mother’s feet and paled at what she saw.

By muted moonlight, it was obvious that the dark pool beneath her mother was blood.

“Mrs. Yoder said the baby wouldn’t be coming for a while,” Rebekah stammered. She chewed the inside of her lip as the sea of churning thoughts attempted to push a coherent solution to this predicament into the forefront of her mind. It wasn’t working.

Clear fluid puddled around her mother in stark contrast to the crimson stains. “Ahh,” Elnora gasped.

“Something’s wrong,” Elnora said, the tension causing her words to break in unnatural places. “With the baby, something’s wrong.”

The tears sprang up in Rebekah’s eyes without warning. “What Ma, tell me what’s wrong.” Rebekah swiped at her face with the back of her hand. “Tell me what’s wrong and I’ll fix it!”

A grunt from Elnora gave her pause. “I have to push!”

Fumbling with her mother’s nightgown, she sucked in a hard breath. “Ma, I see feet.”

Elnora stopped panting. “Feet?” She began to shake her head in tiny little shakes. “Oh Rebekah, no. No!”

“What do I do?” The hysteria was rising in her throat, pinging the ends of her words.

“Turn him. Turn the baby.”

The sea of thoughts began to churn again in Rebekah’s mind, this time vicious and wild.

“Ma,” she began. The icy fingers of fear clenched tight her throat. A very real pain seared there, just beneath her chin. “I don’t know what to do.”

“Dear Father,” Elnora prayed, oblivious to Rebekah’s plight, “Please turn the baby or he’ll die.”

Rebekah placed her hands alongside the tense bulge on Elnora’s stomach. “Please Father; help me save my little brother or sister.”
