Amish Love

What’s all the hubbub about Amish fiction? Major media outlets like Time and ABC Nightline are covering it, and authors like Cindy Woodsmall are making the New York Times bestseller list regularly. What makes these books so interesting?

Check out the recent ABC Nightline piece here about Cindy and her titles When the Heart Cries, When the Morning Comes, and When the Soul Mends. It’s an intriguing look at Amish culture and the time Cindy has spent with Amish friends.

And don’t forget that Cindy’s new book The Hope of Refuge hits store shelves August 11, and is available for preorder now.

you already know of my love of Amish fiction. I LOVE IT! Sometimes it can be a little, well too perfect, but all in all its so cool to see how other people live such a simple lifestyle. We could learn so much from our Amish friends.

I've never gotten into the Amish stuff...I guess they all look like romances, totally not my style!
