Jacob’s Daughter

Friday, December 28, 2012
“I’m what?” “You heard me, Abby. Now hurry up and put this dress over your head before we miss our bus.” Lizzie Barlow stood her ground. She could feel no sympathy for her daughter at the moment. They had to get on that bus to Indiana, and there was no time for the temper-tantrums of a ten-year-old to complicate their already life-threatening situation. “I’m not Amish! You take that back!” Lizzie pursed her lips. “Actually, Abby, you are Amish because I’m Amish.”
