Faith and Flames in the Shenandoah Valley
Two Mennonite families, the Wengers and the Brennemans, face the horrors and hardships of civil war in the once-peaceful Shenandoah Valley. Booms of cannon and screams of wounded men shatter the peace. Raids by alternating armies deplete well-stocked pantries and granaries. Fathers and young men go into hiding. Happy family life suffers strain and disruption. Through all this, faith in God shines brighter than the flames of destruction. Hardcover. Eastern Mennonite Publications, 2007. 384 pages.
