Book 2 of the Return to Northkill trilogy.

Unwilling captive or adopted son? Amish teen Joseph Hochstetler is taken into captivity by Native Americans during the French and Indian War. Initially he resists the Indians’ attempts to help him adapt to their ways—their food, games, and relaxed pace of life.

In this story of forbidden love, Joseph finds himself pressed between his unfolding romance with a young Indian woman and the tug of his heritage. His eyes newly opened to the wrongs committed by the white settlers, Joseph determines never to go back to his Amish community.

But the encroaching British army soon forces the Indians to give up their captives under threat of death. Based on actual events, Joseph’s Dilemma traces the wrenching dilemma of a young man caught between his Amish past, his love for a woman, and an unknown future.

Continues the story started in Jacob’s Choice.

Reviews

Review by: Emma Miller, author of A Match for Addie and Plain Killing - June 17, 2015

Joseph’s Dilemma is a rich and authentic recounting of the perils faced by the Lenape nation and white settlers. Sensitive to the plight of both Native Americans and immigrants, this powerful narrative unfolds through the eyes of an Amish captive struggling to maintain his faith and humanity amid overwhelming loss. A must read.”

Review by: Marta Perry - June 17, 2015

Joseph’s Dilemma is an intriguing exploration of a little-known true story of the French and Indian War. The author’s careful use of historical details gives the reader an interesting perspective, seeing events through the eyes of a young Amish teen captured by the Delaware Indians who becomes an adopted son.”

Review by: Becky Gochenaur - June 17, 2015

“Ervin Stutzman takes us on a journey to explore, with honesty and openness, the tensions between the Amish and Indian cultures. The dilemmas Joseph faces seem impossible, yet Stutzman draws the reader in to feel and experience the joys and sorrows firsthand.”
