My body responded first. I slapped the counter with an open palm and let out a loud “No”!

On Sunday, June 21, 2020, eighteen- year-old Linda Stoltzfoos was kidnapped and murdered by Justo Smoker-a member of our family. Written by the brother-in-law of the killer, this is the personal story of grief, anger, and pain, but also of unexplainable grace, kindness and mercy at the hands of the Amish community. Beechdale Road shows what it’s like when mercy confronts evil, when kindness upends condemnation, when Heaven engages Hell. The first book on this horrific incident.
