At just 30 years old, with dark-blonde hair and freckles, Barbara Weaver was as pretty as the women depicted on the covers of her favorite "bonnet" stories - romance novels set in Amish America. Barbara had everything she'd ever wanted: five beautiful children, a home, her faith, and a husband named Eli. But while Barbara was happy to live as the Amish have for centuries - without modern conveniences, Eli was tempted by technology: cell phones, the Internet, and sexting. Online he called himself "Amish Stud" and found no shortage of "English" women looking for love and sex. Twice he left Barbara and their children, was shunned, begged for forgiveness, and had been welcomed back to the church. Barb Raber was raised Amish, but is now a Conservative Mennonite. She drove Eli to appointments in her car, and she gave him what he wanted when he wanted: a cell phone, a laptop, rides to his favorite fishing and hunting places, and, most importantly, sex. When Eli starts asking people to kill his wife for him, Barb offers to help. One night, just after Eli had hitched a ride with a group of men to go fishing in the hours before dawn, Barb Raber entered the Weaver house and shot Barbara Weaver in the chest at close range. It was only the third murder in hundreds of years of Amish life in America, and it fell to Edna Boyle, a young assistant prosecutor to seek justice for Barbara Weaver.… (mais)

The Amish people are known as "plain." Their simple lifestyle bans the use of electricity, cell phones, automobiles, and all the things that non-Amish consider necessary. This is a fascinating book written by two very competent and excellent writers. When Barbara Weaver was found in her bed with a bullet in her chest, many knew immediately that it was her husband who killed her.

Time and time again, she let him back in her life after he blatantly cheated and broke not only his marriage vows, but the vows he took when he became Amish. Kicked out of the Amish, shunned twice, he gave in to the temptation of sex and multiple partners. Using a cell phone, he trolled sites looking for sex partners, calling himself the "Amish Stud!." And, because of the lure of being with someone Amish, he had no trouble finding women who were drawn to him.

The book focuses on his trial and the fact that he used an older woman to help kill his wife. She was not his usual type of woman, she was non descript, and some would say ugly. He played her emotionally, and she did his bidding. It was text messages left on the phones of both he and his partner that convicted them of murder.

This is a very interesting, and well written book, outlining how the Amish lifestyle did not encourage a wife to leave her husband.

Four stars! Highly recommended. ( )

Good real crime, but very repetitive. ( )

Another great read from Mr. Gregg Olsen and Rebecca Morris. It is interesting as I have read many fiction Amish books. I like many are fascinated by this lifestyle. Yet, even when I have read a few fiction Amish murder mystery stories, I was still shocked by the thought that murder happens in this community. I mean it does but the murder rate is very low.

As I read this story of Barbara and Eli Weaver, I felt conflicted by the people in their community. On one had I understood their reason for forgiving and not holding ill will but on the other hand, I felt like they turned their back on Barbara.

Then there were all of the women that Eli had relationships with. They knew that Eli was married but yet they continued to have relationships with him. If he had never mentioned killing his wife, I believe these women would have still carried on a relationship with him. By the end of this book I did feel like Barbara got justice. ( )
