Beyond the Divide
Meribah Simon can no longer live at home. The Amish community she has grown up in is suffocating her. The strict rules she has always followed feel like walls closing in around her. And to make matters worse, her father has been shunned by the elders of the community. She can't talk to him, spend time with him, or even acknowledge he exists. Meribah can't stand it anymore, but where can she go and how will she survive in a world she barely understands?
Then Meribah discovers her father is leaving to join the gold rush.
Now is her chance. She'll go with him and find a place where she can live freely, as "she" chooses. A place beyond the divide.
This is the story of Meribah's journey. It's a story about friendship, betrayal, and love. It's a story about life.
