I was raised with Mennonites and have lived near Amish as an
I enjoy reading books such as this.
Just reading the outline, it has already touched my heart, would love to read this
I'm not sure of the differences so this could be educational as well as enjoyable. Thanks for the opportunity.
Different points of view always wide my horizons. I look forward to reading this book.
I look forward to reading Hannah's Joy. I live not far from Lancaster County which is Amish country and we always enjoy visiting the area
I'd love to read this book, I've read all the others and enjoyed them very much.
I never realized that there were so many different facets to the Amish people, for lack of a better word. The story sounds like it would be one that would tug at your heart strings, and I would love to read it. I must be honest and admit that I haven't read any of your books before, but if I had the chance to read this one, I'm sure that I'd go back and read the others. Once I get hooked on an author, I stay with a series. I love not only the realism of the covers, but the way the colors are muted, which give the reason behind the book more truth. If it was in wild colors, it would seem as if it was some wild, made up story to sell a book. I love the peacefulness and thought that went behind it. Congratulations on your latest book.
Would love to win. God Bless. May you have many blessings
Sounds like a great book!! Thanks for the chance to win!!

Ironically, I was just finishing one of Kelly Long's books and my husband was telling me that he cannot believe that there is *that* much to write about in relation to the Amish because I am constantly reading Amish fiction. I looked at him and gave him the "Oh no you didn't..." look... I think it is one of those things that a person actually has to witness. It is beyond WHAT the Amish do, their language, their dress....their belief system. Each book is about an individual or community's conflict within themselves, so to speak. When I open the books, I am comofrted by the Amish surroundings and the familiarities of what to expect while empathizing with the character or characters as they undergo an, often, spiritual journey that ultimately makes their lives more positive. I doubt the hubby is ever going to sit down and read Amish fiction (I suppose more surprising things have happened...), but at least he understands my perspective a little better. ;)
I'm fascinated by the Amish and have always wondered why some groups do
I would love to win this book because I absolutely love your stories. They're so inspiring!:)
I would love to win this book! Thanks for the chance!
I would love to win this book! I'm fascinated by the Amish and their lifestyle. I'm sure reading your books will give me an even better insight.
Can't wait to read this. I love every single one of your books that I have
Hannah's Joy sounds like it would explain some of the differences in religion between the Amish and Mennonites. I remember being on a trip to Washington DC for Cherry Blossom time and the teenage Mennonites that came along were a bit wild and enjoyed the beds with built-in vibrators.
I would love to win and read this book...it sounds great.I love Amish books.Thanks..
This sounds really interesting! I've read Amish stories but not any
I do love reading Amish fiction. Yes please!!
I do appreciate the detail authors put in their stories.
I think this new book must have been a challenge! I really like the idea of it. I look forward to reading it and would love to win it. I enjoy Marta's books very much.
I love Amish novels and would love to win this one. Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest!
I live in Ireland where our only experience of Amish people is through screen or book. I find the concept intriguing and pleasant, and would like to kow a lot more about the peple who choose this lifestyle. I saw a "Cold Case" episode where a girl asked the detectives to find her sister who had left the family farm to spend a year living in the city, as required before she could commit herself to the Amish life for good. Sadly she had fallen into bad company and not survived. More recently I saw a documentary including an Amish farmer, who did not want his face to appear on screen, who is happy to use genetically modified cotton seed in order that pests do not eat his crop. Clearly there are innumerable facets to the life chosen by these people. I would love to learn about their loves and disappointments, the warmth and tribulations that make up their personal world. Best of luck with the series.
I really enjoy pleasant valley seris. I would love the next one. I always known some mennonite families and live near amish communities and really interested in knowing more about them.
I would love to win Hannah's Joy because I have read the other books in the series and they were all so good I couldn't put them down!:)
