In a series of diary entries, an Amish farmer named Jacob recounts his family's experience after a solar storm causes electronics all over the world to fail. Eric Michael Summerer's understated, formal narration is an excellent fit for Jacob, whose diary has an old-fashioned tone. As life for the non-Amish (the titular "English") becomes increasingly desperate, their lives begin to intersect more with the Amish community. Summerer smoothly transitions into a more contemporary speaking style for Jacob's English friend, Mike, and his wife. Although the threat of violence is real and omnipresent, Jacob accepts his changing circumstances as God's will. Summerer's steady performance clearly portrays a man who is secure in his faith--an apt performance for this unique take on the apocalypse.
