Both My Sons
Greenywalt, an immigrant father in colonial Pennsylvania, wants a peaceful life with his two sons, the older illegitimate one whom he loves and the younger legitimate one that he has never understood. He also knows neither son’s mother will ever permit peace in his house for the other woman and her son. What can he do? The outbreak of war only complicates things. (Masthof Press, 2016.)
Mastie and Ira Stoltzfus, Mennonite brothers in Lancaster, Pa., face the draft in World War I. Ira chooses the traditional Mennonite position of conscientious objection to war. Mastie, on the other hand, joins the Army and is excommunicated from the church. As the story shifts back and forth between Ira and Mastie, you will be caught up in a powerful examination of love and war, duty and conscience, and the starkly different experiences of two boys from the same Mennonite home. This classic retelling of the prodigal son story set in World War I America includes a thoughtful foreword essay on Mennonites and the military by Professor Joel Hartman of the University of Missouri. Reprinted so a whole new generation can enjoy! (518pp. Masthof Press, 2009 reprint.)
