Inspirational Amish

The Covered Bridge by Karen Harper

When Benjamin Kline returns to the fold after eight years, Abigail Baughman welcomes him with an open heart. But all is not well in their Amish village. Mysterious happenings put Abby in harm's way, forcing Ben to run to her rescue. He's vowed never to let anyone hurt her, and suddenly everything is at risk—their community, their way of life…and their future together.

Fallen in Plain Sight by Marta Perry
Childhood friends Sarah Weaver and Jacob Mast see each other in a different light when violence shatters their peaceful society. Now a series of accidents put their faith—and newfound love—to the ultimate test.

Outside the Circle by Patricia Davids
Isaac Bowman is an outsider, but Lena Troyer makes the widower and his daughter feel like part of the community. So when a deer-poaching ring divides the town, Isaac vows to keep this gentle woman safe from harm…in spite of the danger to his heart.

Re: Dark Crossings

That's a great cover photo. My first sight of Amish life would have been in The Witness. It must be a very difficult choice to stay amid the people and situations and beliefs you have known all your lfe, or to go away to a strange and less supportive way of life with a lover. How would you find a job, learn to use the internet, drive a car? How would you get on if you didn't?
(Clare O'Beara 6:51am July 11, 2012)

We grew up in NJ and went to Lancaster, PA very often. I loved seeing the Amish's way of life and their cooking is wonderful...simple but wonderful.
(
Bonnie Capuano 7:53am July 11, 2012)

Hi Karen, I love Amish stories, suspense, mystery, romance and toss them all together and Dark Crossings has to be a great story. Looking forward to reading and have on my wish list. I love the Amish way of life where they keep things simple yet nourishing their soul, family and friends.
(
Brenda Hill 9:54am July 11, 2012)

I have just been introduced to your writing within the last year, and have become a huge fan. I've passed all books onto my reader friends and they feel the same way. This current book is one I haven't read yet but have been wanting to read this series.
(
Stephanie Strausberger 10:32am July 11, 2012)

I love Amish fiction! Marta Perry is one of my faves as is Vanetta Chapman and Barbara Cameron. Would so love to read this one. It sounds fantastic!
(
Karen Gervasi 11:20am July 11, 2012)

I miss Borders, too! I did get some really great reads when they were closing, though. I have never read Amish fiction, but I LOVED the movie The Witness. It was awesome.
(
Sandy Fielder 11:52am July 11, 2012)

The book sounds great - and I'd LOVE to be a winner. Thanks for the chance. Best of luck with it. Nancy
(
Nancy Reynolds 1:05pm July 11, 2012)

Hi Karen,

Any chance that you may do an Amish book based on the cuttings that have taken placed recently in the area that I am from which is northeast Ohio?

Best of luck!
(
Lori Yost 1:09pm July 11, 2012)

I love stories about the Amish. Its hard to live a life that way in most peoples eyes, but leaving has to be hard. i would love to read your book! thanks
(
Kim Cornwell 2:07pm July 11, 2012)

I have not read any Amish fiction before... thank you for sharing and for giving us the chance to win a copy of your book.
(
Colleen Conklin 2:12pm July 11, 2012)

Hi to all "Posters":

Lori: No, I haven't used the incident yet of the "hair cutters" in Ohio, but it may show up in another novel. Lately, anything the Amish do out of character makes the news. Thanks for everyone's good wishes. I'm heading for the ThrillerFest conference in NYC--all thriller, suspense, mystery writers! Do any of you live near Amish settlements?
(
Karen Harper 5:03pm July 11, 2012)

I love reading Amish fiction stories. I would really love to win and read this interesting book you've written! It sounds good!
(
Linda Luinstra 6:27pm July 11, 2012)

The Amish way of life is simple, old-fashioned living, hard-working and interesting beliefs and ways. Very enjoyable to read about, even when fictional. I would enjoy reading this!
(
Rich Cook 6:41pm July 11, 2012)

I'm a fan of all genres so I don't pay much attention to classifications. The Covered Bridge sounds like a great read.
Good luck and happy writing!
(
Tracie Travis 8:20pm July 11, 2012)

It sounds like a peaceful story and I enjoy reads of all sorts.
(
Darci Paice 8:53pm July 11, 2012)

I do like novellas in the summer since you can read a story quickly.
(
Maureen Emmons 9:12pm July 11, 2012)

I've read many Amish books before, but I can't say that I've ever read an Amish mystery before. I would be honored if your book was my first. I love the way you respect the people, and it sounds like you really did your homework on their lifestyle as well. This book is on my TBR list for the Summer!! I have met and and the pleasure of speaking with a couple of Amish men this year, and found them to be quite shy, reserved, yet charming in their own way. Thank you for keeping their heritage alive, since you are a pathway into their life.
(
Peggy Roberson 9:38pm July 11, 2012)

Enjoyed your blog. Amish stories are great reads.
(
Sheila True 11:01pm July 11, 2012)

Your book sounds very interesting. You have a mix which makes for a enjoyable read plus a mystery. Looking forward to reading your book and hope to win a copy. Thank you and keep writing with such charming style.
(
Shirley Sego 11:05pm July 11, 2012)

I think the mix of mystery and romance make for a perfect book to read---and the Amish touch is just a big plus.
(
Sue Farrell 9:49am July 12, 2012)

I am not too far from the Amish in Geauga County. There are some but mostly Mennonitie in Summit County which is where I live. I am about an hour or so from Holmes County.
(
Lori Yost 11:22am July 12, 2012)

Oh I have to enter...I am a big fan of amish fiction.....the book review sounds soo good......
(
Lnda McFarland 1:15pm July 12, 2012)

hi,karen... i've never read about amish story but i love suspense, i'd love to be your winner
(
Rosalina Rusli 1:38pm July 12, 2012)

I love your comment about "not all quilts and pies." That's great as it simply
says there is much more to the Amish than meets the eye in the items they
produce. I am enthralled about the Amish as well. Reading about them in
novels reveals them as they truly are as a genuinely good and loving people
and not some quiet and dark cult as people used to think of them.

I am glad that more combined genres are being written. It gives the author a
chance to diversify and expand his or her writing talents while giving the
reader a different or "improved" if you will, storyline. The plot of "Dark
Crossings" sounds very intriguing and I'm very much looking forward to
reading it.
(
Connie Fischer 4:54pm July 12, 2012)

Oh, but those cakes, pies and bread are delicious. I understand about shunning when the people don't toe the line including the Amish.
(
Alyson Widen 6:43pm July 12, 2012)

Hi Karen. I love the Amish stories. I live just up the road from Lancaster PA. It seems the Amish have been around my whole life, especially now that I live so close to one of their communities. They continue to fascinate and intrigue even those of us who live near them. I would love to read this book. It seems we can't get enough of Amish fiction!
(
Mary Perry 7:36pm July 12, 2012)

I'm looking forward to reading the book. Thank you for the contest.
(
Rita Wray 7:40pm July 12, 2012)

Amish stories are among my favorite. I would love to read DARK CROSSINGS thank you.
(
Mary Preston 8:19pm July 12, 2012)

I love reading about the Amish. Christian Fiction is my genre of choice. Would love to read your DARK CROSSINGS.
