This book "Counting the Cost" is a wonderful biography of Alexander Mack, the reluctant founder of the Brethren religion (who are sometimes called "the dunkers" for their baptism rituals). It is immensely readable (except possibly for the German pronunciation of some of the locales), and covers the founding of the church in Germany, and the wanderings of the members that finally led them to the United States.
The story is filled with interesting historical facts (as the author literally traced Mack's footsteps for more than 10 years), but it is also a story of the family relationships and hardships in the face of a calling from God. I think you will find it fascinating.
