In a departure from his usual Amish fiction, Jerry Eicher has penned a futuristic political thriller in World's Apart. Young Amishman Enos Yoder faces the greatest crisis of his life when his father refuses to accept the compromises the Bishop has made, and his mother lies on her deathbed. Regina Owens, the liberal minister in town, is having her normal world rocked to the core as she watches a woman fleeing the helping hand of the government, and wonders why a man would lift his own hand against what is most precious in life. Will Enos recover from the brutal shock when his girlfriend is taken from him? Will his faith, backed by five hundred years of teaching against violence, survive the hate rising in his heart? Will Regina find her answer? And can she live with the truth once she does? Two worlds collide as the corrupt government drives them together.
