Clouds Without Rain – A New Edition from Ohio University Press, Coming in 2020

The story begins with a fatal accident between a horse-drawn buggy and an eighteen-wheeler. Professor Branden grows suspicious about the true nature of the crash, and he sets out to discover the links between the crash and a number of other disturbing events: Amish teenagers robbing buggies, land swindles, the collapse of ethics in an Old Order congregation, and a banker gone missing.

Paul has lived in Wooster, Ohio, with his wife Madonna since 1977.

Paul's novels have been reviewed in prominent journals and newspapers, for instance, Kirkus Reviews, ForeWord Magazine, Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Booklist, Ohioana Quarterly, and the New York Times Book Review.
