Publisher's Summary

Rachel Stoltzfus never imagined she’d be the talk of her Old Order Mennonite community until whispers stir the moment her belly swells with new life. Unmarried and refusing to repent by naming the partner in her sin, Rachel feels the wrath of the religious sect as she is shunned by those she loves most and eventually forced to leave - driven out by her twin sister’s husband, the bishop.
But secrets run deep in this cloistered community, and the bishop is hiding some of his own, threatening his conscience and his very soul. When the life of Rachel’s baby is at stake, choices must be made that will bring the darkness to light, forever changing the lives of those who call Copper Creek home.


What the Critics Say

"A must-read that will draw you into a secretive world of sin and senselessness and leave you with the hope of one set free." (Julie Cantrell, New York Times best-selling author of Into the Free.)

The Outcast

Would you consider the audio edition of The Outcast to be better than the print version?

I enjoy the audio much more than the print as it adds extra depth to the story.

What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

The narrator did an excellent job reading and voicing the characters. My favorite character she voiced was Ida Mae.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was easy to listen and follow. The narrator did an excellent job with the Amish accents.

Any additional comments?

I'm looking forward to hearing many more books narrated by this artist.
