It’s the time of the American Civil War and the country is wrecked by strife. But war is far away for Johannes, a young Amish boy, who loves to play the drum. However, Mother does not share his passion, and sends him up the hill so she does not have to hear his incessant drumming.
But that day a savage troupe of Confederate soldiers raid and burn their farm, and all at once, war is not that far away anymore for young Johannes. He is plunged into the middle of the action without his parents, together with his dog and with an unexpected friend, a deserter from the Confederate army.
They search for meaning and truth against the backdrop of war and find the answers on a chilly Christmas Eve.
‘Amish Drummer Boy: A Christmas Journey of the Heart’ is part of the Amish Christmas Tales Series – a collection of classic Christmas Tales with an unforgettable Amish twist.
