Summary

Can Anna Mae heed God’s call on her life, even if it means leaving behind everything she knows . . . and everyone she loves? 
Ever since Anna Mae’s childhood friend Jeremiah left their Amish community, she’s questioned her own place in the Amish world. The Amish life feels as if it’s closing in on her, and with her mother trying to set her up with potential suitors, Anna Mae feels trapped in a life she’s not sure she wants anymore. 
But she’s never told anyone that she longs for a tiny taste of freedom—freedom that could be very costly. 
When Jeremiah suddenly reappears in Middlefield to help his mentor, Yankee veterinarian Dr. Miller, new questions surface for Anna Mae, along with feelings she’d never fully acknowledged before. 
As Anna Mae and Jeremiah rekindle their friendship, old feelings take on new meaning. Yet the question still lingers: What is God’s plan for her life? 
Should she stay, remaining loyal to her Amish family, or does God have a bigger plan—one that provides more freedom than she could imagine? 
The answers do not come easily, and God’s plan may lead in different directions . . . for both of Anna Mae and Jeremiah.

    In Surviving Love, Alyce escapes to the beach after a nine‑month separation from her husband, Michael, who is pressuring her to sign divorce papers after having an affair for a year and a half. She is processing her pending identity as a divorced woman, although divorce goes completely against her faith and her belief in “for better or for worse”. On Alyce’s first day at the beach, she meets Ben. An unexpected friendship soon blossoms as she unearths parts of herself that have long been dormant. She becomes energized by her newly defined relationship with God and peace with her circumstances. Meanwhile, Michael is confronting his own life choices. When he decides he wants his wife and his life back to “normal,” he must follow an intriguing trail to find Alyce at the beach. Once he arrives, nothing is as he anticipated.

    This
    book is intended for both ministers and laymen. It will be of help to the
    minister in suggesting to him how to make full proof of his own ministry and
    how to get his people to work. It will be of help to laymen in pointing out to
    them many fields of fruitful labor for Christ.
    
    The Church of Christ is full of people who wish to work for their
    Master but do not know how. This book is intended to tell them how. It contains
    no untried theories, but describes many methods of work that have been put to
    the test of actual experiment and have succeeded. As far as known there is no
    other book that covers the same field. For years it has been upon my heart to
    write this book, and I have been asked again and again to do so. But I have
    never found time until now. May it be used of God to the conversion of
    thousands to Christ.
