A Perfect Square
A Shipshewana Amish Mystery book2
by Vannetta Chapman
Actually there were 2 separate incidents that inspired this book. My father-in-law was suffering with Alzheimer's at the time, and so I wanted to write about dealing with that particular disease. Also, I was in my last year of teaching, and teenagers were very much on my mind. Both of these inspired the plot line.
I think in this book, I really came to care for Reuben. He's a special guy.
Grace! God's grace.
Zondervan had decided they wanted a 3 book series set there.
I have a baby name book, and I use my Bible a lot too!
There's a scene where Callie is in the barn watching someone clean out a horse stall. Now, I've never done this myself. After I wrote the scene, I had someone who does have a lot of experience with horses check it over. She was at my classroom door in 5 minutes, laughing, because I had so many of the details wrong! I teach in a small town, and most of my students knew way more about horses than I did. So between the kids and this teacher, they straightened me out.
God has a plan for each of us. Jeremiah 29:11. That verse was on my mind through this entire book.
thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
Jeremiah 29:11 KJV

There's more to the quaint northern Indiana town of Shipshewana than handcrafted quilts, Amish-made furniture, immaculate farms and close-knit families. When a dead girl is found floating in a local pond, murder is also afoot. And Reuben Fisher is in jail as the suspect!
Reuben refuses to divulge any information, even to clear himself of a crime Deborah is certain he didn't commit. So, with her English friend, Callie---fellow sleuth and owner of Daisy's Quilt Shop---Deborah sets out to uncover the truth. But the mystery deepens when an elderly man seeks Callie's help in finding his long-lost daughter, missing since the days of the 1965 Palm Sunday Tornadoes. An old man who has lost his past. A young man who may lose his future. Once again Deborah and Callie find themselves trying to piece together a crazy quilt of lives and events---one that can bring unexpected touches of God's grace and resolve the tragedy that has shaken this quiet Amish community.
