The Face of Heaven, Paperback Book

The Face of Heaven Paperback

Part of the Snapshots in History series


In April 1861, Lyndel Keim discovers two runaway slaves in her family's barn.

When the men are captured and returned to their plantation, Lyndel and her young Amish beau, Nathaniel King, find themselves at odds with their pacifist Amish colony Nathaniel enlists in what will become the famous Iron Brigade of the Union Army.

Lyndel enters the fray as a Brigade nurse on the battlefield, sticking close to Nathaniel as they both witness the horrors of war-including the battles at Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, and Antietam.

Despite the pair's heroic sacrifices, the Amish only see that Lyndel and Nathaniel have become part of the war effort, and both are banished. And a severe battle wound at Gettysburg threatens Nathaniel's life.

Lyndel must call upon her faith in God to endure the savage conflict and to face its painful aftermath, not knowing if Nathaniel is alive or dead.

Will the momentous battle change her life forever, just as it will change the course of the war and the history of her country?

The Face of Heaven is a dramatic story that will release on the 150th anniversary of the historic battle of Antietam, September, 1862.
