She kept all the children’s food securely locked in the supply room in the building they used as a kitchen and dining room. The key hung on a leather cord around her neck. If anyone wanted it, they would have to fight her for it. The few staples she’d managed to lock away was the only thing standing between full little bellies for her children and starvation.
In 1959, after reading a heartbreaking plea for medical personnel, Bertha Troyer, a young, beautiful Amish woman from Sugarcreek, rebels against church rules and enters nursing school determined to pour out her life on behalf of the desperate children of Haiti. This fourth installment of the Sugarcreek Series, follows Rachel’s beloved aunt, Bertha, back in time to a nightmare of poverty, political unrest, and deadly hurricanes, as Bertha is forced to make the most agonizing decision of her life to protect her people… and the man she loves.
About Bertha’s Resolve
“When Rachel accused Bertha of being too perfect to understand other people’s spiritual struggles, I knew that I needed to write Bertha’s story about her challenges as a young nurse in Haiti, and the regrets that still haunt her.”
“If you are looking for a different storyline you must read Bertha’s Resolve. This book is so interesting and Bertha’s journey is beautiful. Brought me to tears. Thank you Serena Miller for this wonderful story of an Amish girl who becomes a nurse missionary who becomes an Amish lady. Beautifully written.”
“This is such an amazing continuation of this series! I am totally enthralled by the characters, and their growth!! A must read if you read the first three books!”
“I have enjoyed reading this great series that takes place in Sugarcreek. The characters are outstanding and I want to drive to Sugarcreek and meet everyone I have come to love through these wonderful stories. The Author is excellent and she has quickly become one of my favorites.”
This book has the perfect blend of mystery, drama, humor and romance and Miller has her pacing down pat. She weaves a tight plot out of a multitude of random story threads that all knot together for a surprising, nail-biting and oft times hilarious conclusion.
“I loved this book and though it was a wonderful addition to the series. Serene Miller has a way of writing that makes you want to keep reading one more page and before you know it you have finished the book. This story will pull at your heart strings and you’ll find yourself pulling for the characters a long the way.”
