Amish Author Olivia Newport & Her Mother’s Family Tree — 6 Comments

  1. A split? there is one now.. My 84 year old mother-in-law knows her 38 year old grandson is a man in need of desperate help & she refuses to listen to her children that she needs to leave him in rehab & let THEM help him. Going off & on for 20 years now..
    I’d love to read this book!

  2. Amish fiction is my favorite genre to read and I would love to read this book. There have been a few splits in our family. Parent-child which has been restored, aunt and cousin – which has not been restored but sometimes you just have to keep praying and leave it in God’s hands and another cousin who everyone in the family needs to be patient and forgiving with.

  3. Nothing extremely major has ever done that it our family, but there have been situations with from time-to-time. My best friend is Amish and I know she tells me about some other families’ issues from our community. Right now there is a young man in an Amish family who left home a couple weeks ago to live with an English family and his mother is heartbroken. I met his mother last week and she is extremely concerned about him.

  4. We’ve had two major family breaks in our family. One has healed and the other is going on three years of brothers not speaking. So sad.

  5. This is exactly the type of Amish story line that I have suggested to a couple of authors and I am so excited to see this! I am a professional genealogist and love helping people with their Amish/Mennonite Germanic/Swiss backgrounds. It is SOOOO interesting. This is a must-read for me!

    As for the question, no one has split our family, although their were those who strayed away for a length of time and have since returned to the fold! Looking forward to reading this great sounding book!
