Coming Soon-George Michael Loughmueller's "Set Free-An Amish Journey-Volume 5-The Blue Door"
His last chance was their only hope.
In this new, best-selling, periodical short story series from Trestle Press, a man on the brink of self-destruction is given the opportunity to start over.
Part 5 of 10.
Outsiders have many myths about the Amish. It has been said that an Amish father will paint to door of his house blue when he has a daughter old enough to marry. Allan Howarth will learn first-hand if that myth is true.
In The Blue Door, Allan’s daughter Alice reveals her true motives for staying in Karsten Field. Meanwhile, Allan finds himself welcomed into the community, first through his new students and then by their parents.
To top it all, his friend Ben Abrim has a surprise announcement that Allan never expected.
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.
