Review of Jan Dexler’s “The Roll of the Drums”
One of the wonderful things I love about Jan’s books, are the kindness through her stories. She writes in a way that brings me into the story, as if I am in a theatre watching the story play out.
The Roll of the Drums is set in the late 1800’s, in Amish country. (to which Jan has roots to the Amish from PA in the 1700’s, I think that is what makes her passion shine through each of her stories…!); it’s about love, honor, loyalty and the pain of death, during war time.
She includes the promises of God in the Bible. It’s definitely a “good” book to read without sex, violence etc.
Without giving a lot of the story line, I suggest any of Jan Drexler books if you enjoy the Amish style stories. Easy to follow the story line, soft and tender, love and honor throughout.
