When former Congressman Mark Stedman throws in the towel on his presidential campaign, his only choice is to return to his home state and decide how to spend the rest of his life … until he meets Josiah Stoltzfus, an Amish farmer from Pennsylvania.

Stedman learns more from Josiah in a few hours than in his many years in office. He comes to the conclusion that someone like Josiah should be running the country. Not a career politician, but someone with a little old-fashioned common sense, someone who’s not afraid of rolling up his sleeves and getting his hands dirty. Someone like Josiah Stoltzfus.

Using his old campaign headquarters for a base, Mark Stedman determines to introduce a new candidate to America. He pledges to do everything in his power to make sure Josiah gets elected. But can a plain man of faith turn the tide of politics and become the leader of America, and what will he have to risk to do it?

    " Pretty good if you really want a big change from traditional Amish fiction and from most Christian fiction in general. This has the hard-line, fast-pacedness of the political scene, which can be hard to follow, but is an overall enjoyable read once mixed with the slower, simple truths of Amish ways. "

    " OMG!!! I love, love, love this book! LOVE IT!!! It gives hope that with a little common sense and a heart that votes what's right instead of what the would give favorable ratings, we could right this listing ship and get her back on course. Let me say it again...I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!! "

    " Fabulous book about what happens if an Amish man becomes president. Josiah is truly an Abraham Lincoln for our time and I wonder how things would be if we had someone like him in the White House. "

    " The writing in this book is solid, the characters are real, and the story - while being a little outlandish - is compelling. This book was a joy to read. "
