A Hidden Truth by Judith Miller – Book 1 of Home to Amana Series

When Karlina Richter finds out that a new shepherd will be sent to East Amana, she fears she’ll no longer be able to help her father with the sheep. She’ll be relegated back to kitchen work, a job she dislikes. Her fears increase when Anton Becker arrives and shows little interest in the flock–or in divulging why he’s been sent to East Amana. Dare she trust Anton to help her father, or is he keeping secrets that will impact them all?  Set in Amana Colonies, 1892.
