Amanda : A Daughter of the Mennonites (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Amanda: A Daughter of the Mennonites The scorching heat Of a midsummer day beat mercilessly upon the earth. Travelers on the dusty roads, toilers in the fields, and others exposed to the rays of the sun, thought yearningly Of cooling winds and running streams. They would have looked with envy upon the scene being enacted in one Of the small streams of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. There a little red-haired girl, barefooted, her short gingham skirt tucked up unevenly here and there, was wading in the cool, shallow waters Of a creek that was tree bordered and willow-arched. Her clear, rippling laughter of sheer joy broke through the Sabbatical calm of that quiet spot and echoed up and down the meadow as she splashed about in the brook.
