Inspirational Amish

A Little Bit of Charm, the third book in bestselling author Mary Ellis's New Beginnings series, is about fresh starts...and how faith in God and His perfect plans provide the peace and joy all long for.

After the death of her parents and then watching both of her older sisters find happiness in homes of their own with husbands who adore them, Rachel King yearns for a new beginning. Her cousin Sarah lives near a thoroughbred stable in Kentucky, and working around beautiful horses is Rachel's dream come true. She leaves Lancaster County to find a job at Twelve Elms Stables and believes God has answered her prayers.

And then she meets Jake, an attractive and charming Englisch man. At first she refuses to go out with him, but he eventually convinces her to give him a chance. When Amish men who also wish to date Rachel start encountering strange mishaps, she wonders if Jake is really who he seems to be.

What does a young woman do when her heart is pulled in two directions?

Re: A Little Bit of Charm

Wow, Congrats on your new book: A LITTLE BIT OF CHARM. I
love to read about the Amish and my mom and I used to see
them when we would visit their restaurant and gift shop in
Haven, KS. Being raised on a farm in Kansas I really admire
their hard work and lifestyle too. I would love to win and
read your great book this summer. Thank You very much.

This sounds very good.

I don't think I would do well without my tech gadgets. Too attached.

I've never read any of your books but I've recently fallen in love with the Amish
lifestyle. I love how their lives are a slower pace. They know how to keep focus
on the family. Sometimes, I put down my tech gadgets (this coming from a
person with two computer degrees) and just try to enjoy life how it used to be
before it got so hurried. The cover of A Little Bit of Charm is to die for.

I live about 2 hours away from a very small Amish Community here in Illinois. The quilt displays and auctions are always an event/events, that I try to make sure and see. Have you ever been to the Amana Colonies in Iowa. I found them such a fun place to visit and see. Also, my husband grew up in Maryland right next to Mennonite farmers. One of the young boys, gave my husband his hat and to this day, we have it on display in our home...Many thanks, Cindi]

When your heart is being pulled in two different directions... pause and consider all the facts and ramifications. Pray for guidance and answer will eventually come to you.

I find the Amish culture very fascinating.

When a young woman's heart is pulled in two directions first pray to God that He will lead you to the man He wants you to marry. He should be a man who loves the Lord, lives a clean life, is kind and honest, slow to anger, etc. That they love each other and have things in common. I really liked your post and would very much like to read your books, as I enjoy reading stories about the Amish. Thank you for this chance to win, hope I do. God Bless You.

I love the Amish and their simpler way of life. I've never seen an Amish village or community. It would be so interesting. Would love to read your new great book this summer. I know I'd really enjoy it, since you've really done your research. Congrats on your 2012 Lime Award for Book 1 and for being nominated for 2013 Lime Award for Book 2! I will have to read those also.

Your visit to Kentucky sounds like so much fun. I live not far from the Amish in Pennsylvania and I always enjoy it when we drive thru the area and admire their lifestyle. I will enjoy reading A Little Bit of Charm

I can't wait to read this. I live in an area in Missouri where we live with Amish & Mennonite neighbors. They are wonderful neighbors and I love to read stories with them featured in them.

Being from Pennsylvania, not too far from Amish territory, and now having lived in Delaware for over 20 years (where there are plenty of Amish all around me), I find their different culture style to be charming and endlessly interesting. There is nothing that draws me more than a chance to learn about a new people or culture or country.

I find he Amish interesting to read about, but I'm sure I couldn't live like them. Would love to win a copy of your book.

It sounds like you had a little taste of Amish life while doing your research while on vacation. It's always interesting to learn more facts about their lifestyle to incorporate that into your books which most people are curious about.
(

It would be nice to get away from cell phone and the computer for awhile. It would be nice just to go Amish for awhile.
(
Kai Wong 11:40pm August 8, 2013)

The research would be fascinating.
