His last chance was their only hope.

George Michael Loughmueller is a descendant of German heritage. Finding joy in being a husband and father, he is known by his friends as “Laughing George” because of his cheerful disposition and the pronunciation of his last name.
Born in the Midwest, George has spent time both in Omaha, Nebraska and Des Moines, Iowa. He works in retail, but has long had the dream of being an author. With the support of family and friends, George decided to write a story inspired by his grandfather.
“Set Free: An Amish Journey” is a work of fiction. However, some of the events are based on facts and stories told by George’s late father about the unusual life of his grandfather. In George’s mind, the fictional church district of Karsten Field is set in the small communities of eastern Iowa.
Allan Howarth's family is the average American family. Allan is a family man with a wife and two kids. He and his wife seem disconnected and have the not-so-perfect marriage. His two teenagers are spoiled with the latest gadgets. They are the materialistic family.
Praise for the series “An Amish Journey- Set Free” :
S. M. Fatta "Beauty Brite Reviews"
“As I read this book, it reminded me of the typical American family. Everyone tries to "Keep up with the Joneses." They want the biggest televisions, the newest phone, the new gadget, etc.
Allan realizes how disconnected his entire family is from each other. He is looking for a change. One day, he receives a letter from an old friend that will change his life. He goes to investigate and discovers a different a new start for his family. He has the opportunity to move his family on a plot of land to join an Amish community.
I don't think I could completely live like the Amish, but we are forced to live frugally and modestly. I found this book to be an eye opening story. Anyone who takes the time to read this book will be inspired to change, even if it's a small change.”
