    I read a number of Amish-based books, they really do lead me to a peaceful state of mind. This book looks wonderful! Thank you for promoting the life of the Amish. They truly are beautiful people.

  3. Thanks for insight into the history of the Amish, Marti. The Amish are a religious sect that I haven’t researched and my knowledge is limited so it was fun reading your answers. I didn’t realize the Amish broke off from the Mennonite sect. I thought it was the other way around–now I’m really showing my lack of knowledge. LOL.

    Love your cover. Good luck to all of you who posted. I know the winner is going to love the book–and for those who don’t win–there’s always the bookstore. 🙂

  9. When I moved to idaho and later on to montana I noticed
    Mennonites and few Amish people. I was interested in learning about their life style . As a Christian I found I enjoyed reading fiction books about them because I could pretty much count on them being clean and non offensive. Having spent time with some plain people I think most books tend to romantasize the life style. I would like to read a book with a bit more balance view. For instance about those who find salvation being ostrosized by their families and leaders. It is very painful. Having said that I still enjoy reading amish fiction.

  10. I really enjoyed reading about the history of the Amish, Marta, and like Lyn, I was surprised at the number of Amish now. I shouldn’t have been, because even here in Kentucky, the Amish communities are growing and spreading into our farming communities. There are places not far from where I live where it’s not uncommon to come up on a horse and buggy on the highways.

    I also really like the cover of your new book, The Forgiven. It definitely promises a story. Good luck to all of you who are leaving comments and have a chance to win your own copy.
