Bethany House: Levi's Will

Levi's Will is a story about a man who seeks redemption throughout his whole life, a redemption and love that can only be found through one Person.  As a young man, Will left his life behind to start a new life, a dramatic change from the Amish world to our world.  

The story started out in a very exciting way with Will and his brother running away.  Will was leaving behind a pregnant girlfriend, and he knew if he ran, that his lie would not longer exist  for him in his Amish community; he would be excommunicated from the church.  As he ran, both on foot and by train, he knew that he would have to start a completely new life.  A new name, a new history lay before him....the old was gone.  As Will  gained different jobs working on various farms, he soon came to realize that young men were expected to do more, especially right now with World War II blazing overseas.  Most young men were joining the Army, something Will struggled with, as he had been raised a Pacifist.  Many things in Will's life had changed, though, and this was just one more thing he must do....

Follow Will's story as he not only becomes a soldier, but he meets and falls in love with Helen, a southern girl, later on marrying her.  As the story continues, it switches from Will's life now to his life then and goes back and forth, intertwining the two to show his regrets, his hopes, and his heart.  Having a son of his own that he struggles with and is trying to forge a right relationship with, Will still seeks the forgiveness and love of his earthly father, but it's only when he finds the love of his Heavenly Father, that he can truly forgive and love himself, in spite of all he has done in his life.   

You can purchase Levi's Will from Bethany House for $11.19.
