Through the Autumn Air
BY: Kelly Irvin
Being alone was not something Mary Katherine had much experience with since she was the mother of ten; however with her last child getting married that is just where she found herself…Alone! She had been a widow for seven years and talked with her dead husband every day because he was the love of her life and she never expected to find another man to love. She devoted most of her time and energy lending a helping hand where needed and writing. She secretly dreamed of opening a bookstore with her English friend, Dottie, but the church elders thought she should work in the combination Amish store and move into the dawdy haus.
When Ezekiel’s wife died he opened the Purple Martin Café to keep his family together and to provide a living for them. He and Mary Katherine were school friends so he offered her a job in his restaurant, but it didn’t fit her dream, nor did she want to explore the feelings she might be developing for Ezekiel.
Burke McMillan, an English stranger broke into Mary Katherine’s house in the middle of the night. When she confronted him, all he wanted was a sandwich. Being a good Amish person, she made him a sandwich and let him spend the night in her barn. Her family and the church elders were not happy, because they felt he was probably the one responsible for the robberies in the area.
MS Irvin weaves an intense story full of twits and turns with the main characters, Mary Katherine, Burke and Ezekiel, that will keep you turning the pages. As the story develops you will find yourself becoming a champion for each of the characters as they work to find peace with the past and courage to face the future. This book is filled with love, second chances and even a little suspense. If you are a fan of Amish stories, this is one you will not want to miss.
