Encourages Personal Reflection

In this second book in Drexler's The Amish of Weaver's Creek series, we are reunited with Abraham Weaver's family, particularly his daughter, Ruby. The family takes in former minister Gideon Fischer, his ailing wife, and their four children. Gideon is running from his memories and guilt over his role in the war between the Union and the Confederacy, the fleeing and separation of his flock, and the circumstances his family had contended with during his forced absence. Weaver Creek and Abraham and Lydia's home offer the perfect sanctuary to recover from his spiritual wounds. Unfortunately, the war may not be far behind.

Drexler brings to the forefront Scripture's instructions regarding how we as Christians are to treat our enemies. Readers will be challenged to put themselves in the characters' shoes and consider their own choices in the situations in which Drexler places them. While a thoroughly enjoyable read, there will be plenty of opportunities for self-reflection.

I am grateful to have received a copy of The Roll of the Drums from Revell via NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. I was under no obligation to provide a positive review, and received no monetary compensation.
