Bridget Behr and her family migrate from the bustling Amish community where she grew up in
to the mostly unpopulated Upper Peninsula of Michigan after a stalker breaks
into their home. While her father and brother try to find work in the area, the
family is forced to reside in a borrowed RV until the house and barn are
rebuilt. While Bridget is hoping for a fresh start, she’s afraid to trust
anyone—even Gabriel, the overly-friendly Amish man who lives nearby. Bridget

Due to not enough construction work in his Florida community to keep him out of trouble, Gabriel Lapp has been sent to Michigan to work. His father is desperate for his son to settle down. When the family walks into Gabe’s home in the middle of a thunderstorm and he discovers their circumstances, he offers to help with construction. For Gabe, the beautiful girl he teasingly calls “the recluse” once he discovers she doesn’t attend youth events, confuses him like none other.
As Gabriel and Bridget grow closer, they realize there is more to a person than meets the eye. Just as Bridget is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding love, tragedy strikes. Now Bridget and her family must decide if they should move to another Amish community, or dare to fight for the future they’d hoped for in

I believe Firestorm is one of the best books Author Laura V Hilton has written. One characteristic that the Author portrayed in this novel are Amish are the same as us - humans. Good and bad things happen to all of us, but God is still in control. I so enjoyed reading Firestorm and by saying this, I believe this is a must read book. Firestorm is Book One of The Amish of Mackinac County by Author Laura V Hilton. Magnificent Book!!
I received a copy from the author, but was not required to review it. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.
