Joshua’s Mission is a new standalone novel in the Plain and Simple Miracles collection from popular author Vannetta Chapman. These stories of love and family and Amish community in Oklahoma tell of the miracles that can happen when lives are lived in service to God and to one another.
Joshua Kline travels from his farm in Oklahoma to offer aid to an Englisch town on the gulf coast of Texas after a category 4 hurricane has ravaged the area. He brings his brother with him, who needs a change of environment. The last thing he wants for Alton is another brush with the law. He is pleasantly surprised when he hears that Becca Troyer, the bishop’s granddaughter, plans on joining their team.
What will Joshua find when he arrives in Texas? A lack of electricity, certainly, which poses little problem for the Amish volunteers as they help restore order from destruction. But a budding romance? A call from God? And a possible healing of his relationship with Alton?
Joshua’s Mission is a story of love, forgiveness, and the grace of God that carries us through even the worst situations.

"Is it too audacious for a mere reader, even one who has read nearly every Vannetta Chapman release, to declare Joshua's Mission her 'best ever?' It is wunderbaar gut, for sure and certain."
—Alan Daugherty, weekly columnist in The News-Banner
"Joshua's Mission is hands down a must read book! Vannetta Chapman is a masterful storyteller who has developed such genuine characters I immediately became emotionally attached to them."
"Joshua's Mission is a story that captivates the reader with the first page. Life can be totally changed by a weather event and yet can bring people from different areas together for good. I learned a lot about the destruction that hurricanes can bring and also, was reminded that God has a plan for each of us. This is an excellent story."
"Joshua's Mission is an excellent read you won't want to miss."
"Cracking the spine of a new Vannetta Chapman book is always a pleasure and an adventure. Joshua's Mission was no exception. I grew up in a North Carolina coastal city and we had some devastating hurricanes. Until you've experienced the massive destruction these huge and ferocious storms vent, you cannot truly comprehend them. Chapman has written a revealing and realistic description of a hurricane impacting a beach community and the people who live there.
"This is a highly recommended book that you can offer early teens through grandma to read and feel comfortable about sharing with them. And I think you'll love Charlie's dog, Quitz."
"I absolutely could not put this book down... This is a wonderful story of love, faith, hope and service."
"I have to be honest - I have enjoyed ALL of Chapman's books. She has a gentle style that's just plain likeable. And this book was no exception."
