“The Amish Man of Ice Mountain” by Kelly Long

“The Amish Man of Ice Mountain” by Kelly Long is a story of two brothers from Ice Mountain, Pennsylvania who are working on an oil rig in West Virginia.  They are working there because opportunities in their hometown are not so great.  Joseph is the older brother who carries a secret from his past that continues to weigh him down.  Edward, the younger, is supposed to be saving money in order to marry his sweetheart back home.  However, Edward is drinking and carousing far too much.  They meet a new waitress at their boarding house, Priscilla and her young daughter Hollie.  Joseph finds out that the two are living in their car in the parking lot and tries to help them.  The story continues as these three struggle with their secrets while also struggling with their faith.  The book kept my interest throughout was well written, and the characters were well thought out.

I was sent a free print copy of the book by NightOwlReviews.com in return for my honest opinion of the book.
