Why She Wrote the Book
What about struggling with questions like why some people live and die without the Gospel? Or life after death? Or, in the case of my newest novel – can the dead communicate with the living?
I wrote a novel—actually, an Amish ghost story—to explore that issue. Although the Bible repeatedly warns people not to seek communication with the dead, the New Testament depicts an example of when two dead men—Moses and Elijah—appeared on earth. And what about the souls under the altar, crying out in Revelation 6:9-11?

About the Book
In What Will Be Made Plain, Leah Mohn's charismatic Amish father moves a whole community two counties away to make a fresh start with his version of the simple life, and Leah finds much that is comforting and secure. But her dead mother appears to her in dreams, urging her to some sort of action, and no one can help Leah get answers about what her heritage says about the supernatural.
Handsome visitor Matthaus Lescher is Amish, too—but his input about the undead, and his own involvement with the Goth culture—leave her with even more questions, and an inevitable head-on collision with her faith and her sanity.
