  3. Thanks so much for sharing your lovely stories. I think one of the best things we can do for each other is share our faith stories.


  4. Thanks for sharing this story. It as very inspiring. I have read your others books and look forward to reading Danger in Plain Sight. Also putting Dark Crossing on my wish list.

  5. HBO made a movie about Vivien Thomas. It’s called “Something The Lord Made.” When I visited JHU hospital, I had my photo taken with Vivien Thomas’s portrait. In the face of discrimination, he persisted with grace and changed the lives of so many children. What a hero!

  6. Your story gave me goosebumps, I am so glad the parents stayed in Hope and finally found the help needed. I have not read too many suspense books but do sometimes. Historical is what I like best . I have read books by Marta in the love inspired books before. thanks for sharing today. This looks like a good story -I too think doing what is right will win in the end.

  7. Ms. Marta Perry,
    Thanks for sharing that inspiring story, I’ll be sure to tell the rest of my family about it. I absolutely love your books and the great love from above that shines down on them and onto the pages. I would be thrilled to win a copy of Danger in Plain Sight!:)

  8. Oh yes, I heard God’s voice loud and clear late one evening back in May of 1999. I was watching T.V. in bed, my husband was away on company business. I heard this voice telling me to check my right breast. I thought it was unusual as the voice didn’t say check your breasts but was specific on which one to check. I did; I found a lump. The next day I called and made an appointment with my doctor. She set me up to have a mammogram done. After my mammogram the technician asked me if I could stay and have an ultra sound done. I did. A doctor looked at the results of the ultra sound and told me that I had a suspicious lump. All the info was turned over to my doctor. To make a long story short. The lump turned out to be malignant and surgery was performed and treatments started. I am here to tell you that God can and does speak to us! Praise God because of Him I am alive today!


  9. Marta, what a beautiful story. I had my son last year. When I went to the hospital, they said I wasn’t in labor. I insisted I was. They kept me. Shortly after the doctor on call came in to check on me, another came in. She needed emergency c section. The nurse told me I was her angel because if I hadn’t came in and insisted the doctor check on me then the other woman and her baby would not have made it. Fast forward two hours, they realized I was right and was in labor.

  10. This sounds like your best book every. I wish it had come out years ago when my husband and I received the news we did.
    It is amazing how strong the faith of the Amish is, I wish I had half their faith.

    God Bless,

  11. What a wonderful story, Marta! Thank you for shaing it with us!
    Danger in Plain Sight looks like it will be a good one. I have enjoyed reading several of your novels and hope to read them all someday. We have about ten of your titles at Grace Lutheran Church Library, and a special sign showing patrons where your books are on the shelf. I have Buried Sins here at home right now and am hoping to find the second book of the Three Sisters Inn trilogy. HIde in Plain Sight was great! I also enjoyed Her Surprise Sister and am looking forward to the rest of the series, even though it will probably be written by other authors. We would love a copy of Danger in Plain Sight for Grace Lutheran Church Library. Thank you for writing such good stories.

  12. I’ve had God intervene with people more than by words. One very snowy night we were let out of class at the college I was attending. They’d plowed once and there was another 6-8″ of snow covering the ground. As I hit the highway, I called out to God as to what road to take (before cell phones), and I saw in front of me a person who had rolled down their window and waved at me to follow. It was ‘strange.’ I followed the person and the road was completely cleared. I made it home safely.

    I’m interested in Marta’s book because it’s Amish but also a mystery, something I’ve never read before. Thank you for the opportunity.
