Orphaned. Facing jail. An Amish home is Jacob's last chance.
When orphaned Philadelphia teen Jacob Marshall gets in trouble with the police, he has two options - go to juvenile detention or work on a farm outside of the city. But when he chooses the latter, Jacob gets more than he bargained for as he struggles to find his place in an Old Order Amish community in Lancaster County and with Thomas Mast, the straight laced Amish family man who is charged with keeping Jacob in line. Caught between the light and dark, will Jacob be able to face his demons and put his past behind him and become simply Amish, or will his pain prove stronger than the faith of the Amish community he's grown to love? A Lancaster Amish Home for Jacob is an exciting story of a boy finding himself and his place in a new, strange world.
