The Alliance by Jolina Petersheim
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Alliance fascinated me! The reality of the plot is frightening. This isn’t your usual book about plain people. A plane crashes in a field in an Old Order Mennonite community in Montana. This begins the relationship of Moses Hughes with Leora Ebersole as they discover that the reason his plane’s system stopped and no electronics or electricity at the store work are related. Moses brainstorms with the Mennonite Community about plans for the future as all mayhem could break out. Their worst fears are realized as the world as they know it has come to an end. Suspense rises on every page as they defend their compound and figure out a way to combine the Englisher’s and the Mennonite’s efforts to survive. Leora’s faith in God comes under fire as life changes drastically. Moses is distracted with feelings for Leora. I could not stop reading this book and spent a few late nights finishing it.
I highly recommend The Alliance written by Jolina Petersheim. I’m anticipating the sequel.
I received a copy from Net Galley for my honest opinion which I have given in this review.
