As different as the Amish are from the outside world, so is the Palatin Commune from the rest of their Amish brethren. Enigmatic and strict, the leaders of the sect have guarded their privacy for generations. In Part 3 of Secrets, Volume I of The Amish Mysteries series, we continue to watch the events unfold that will forever change the people inside and some outside the community. Some changes will be for the good, some for bad and some to simple get answers that will test faith, morals and resolve. These incident are the beginning of a journey which will set up the biggest challenge to their Amish way of life in more than 200 years. Jake Crew, a 20 year television veteran by 1994, begins a clandestine assignment from the President of the United States which will forever change his life. At the same time, the leaders of the secretive Amish sect set in motion moves that go against their time-honored practice of little or no contact with the outsiders. In the next decade and a half people and events, both inside and far outside their commune’s fences, move into place, all leading to one catastrophic day which will rock the very foundations of their simple way of life.
