Romance | Amish
As an Amish wife and mother struggles to hold her family
together, a story from the past teaches her how to face
daily challenges with strength and love . . .
In modern day central Pennsylvania, Judith Wegler tries to
heal the growing rift between her husband, Isaac, and his
teenage brother Josephâ€”whom Judith and Isaac have raised
their own ever since both brothers lost their parents and
siblings in a horrific fire. Meanwhile, Isaacâ€™s hurtful
silence about this tragic past has robbed Judith of any
certainty of her husbandâ€™s love.
But when Judithâ€™s grandmother gifts her with an antique
study table, she discovers a hidden packet of letters that
changes her life . . .
In 1953, widow Mattie Lapp fights against the countyâ€™s
attempts to force Amish children to attend a consolidated
public school, even if it means arrest and imprisonment.
Mattie knows she canâ€™t face this challenge alone, and
to her late husbandâ€™s cousin Adam for help, but sheâ€™s
terrified at the prospect of relying on someone else.
Now, as the two womenâ€™s stories converge, both must learn
stand up for their beliefs and to love again, even when it
means risking their hearts . . .

I like both pie and crisp but prefer making crisp (seems
easier to me). I actually just made the rhubarb strawberry
crisp this week and will finish it up today -- yummy!
(Dawn Nicol 10:19am July 10, 2015)
My favorite pie is Rhubarb Apple Pie and Blueberry Pear Crisp.
(Sharon Berger 11:29am July 10, 2015)
I can't say I can ever recall ever eating a crisp, so I
would have to choose pie, because I've made several of those
in my lifetime!! My favorite would have to be a toss-up
between apple or pumpkin. Your visit here today was a
Godsend, because not only did we go away with a recipe, but
I also learned something.If I read your posting correctly,
Pennsylvania Dutch country is Amish country, too!! I had no
idea, even though I've heard that term since I was a little
girl. Any day you learn something new, it's a good day!!
I'm also thrilled to learn about your new book, which has
been put on my TBR list. I can't wait to get my hands on
it, and wind up my Summer reading with your book!! I love
to read about the Amish, and your book sounds like a real
page-turner!! Congratulations on your book!! The cover is
beautifully done, too, and I'm sure it's going to do really

I was so bummed when my rhubarb didn't come up in spring, evidently it
froze out. Luckily I have a neighbor with a big plant and willing to share.
(Laurie Bergh 12:34pm July 10, 2015)
I love a good pumpkin pie yet it seems I only eat it around the winter holidays.
(Joy Isley 5:08pm July 10, 2015)
I have had a ton of rhubarb this year. I make my own recipe
and use apple or cherry pie filling. The strawberry filling
I made last week was not as popular. My kids called it
Rhubarb Delight when I first made it when they were little.
I once won a cookbook on Amish cooking and baking and have
used quite a few recipes from it.
(Leona Olson 6:20pm July 10, 2015)
My favorite pie is pecan pie. Topping it with vanilla ice cream makes it special.
(Gladys Paradowski 10:26pm July 10, 2015)
Any pie is great!!!! Especially one that I didn't have to make the crust for! I like making filling, so crisps are what I make more of. Years ago, I would make the filling and my mom would make the crust for the pies.
(Jennifer Hibdon 11:09pm July 10, 2015)
Pumpkin, of course. Unless it's peach, cherry, apple. Oh, the list goes on.
(Mary Ann Brady 11:19am July 11, 2015)
I love cherry pie but rubarb is great, tooo.
(Mary Hay 11:23am July 11, 2015)
My favorite pie is cherry pie, but I am so excited to
have these rhubarb recipies because I have a rhubarb
patch in my garden that I am dying to do something
different with besides the rhubarb sauce my Mom used to
make when I was a child. I appreciate the chance to win
a copy of "The Rescued"! I love the idea of finding old
letters in an antique table.
(Teresa Kusant 1:50pm July 11, 2015)
Cherry would be my favorite. Thanks for this opportunity.
(Nancy Luebke 3:01pm July 11, 2015)
since I have an apple tree in the back yard it has to be apple.
(Christine Schultz 3:22pm July 11, 2015)
I like both!
(Karen Mikusak 7:36pm July 11, 2015)
My two favorite pies are blueberry and cherry, with a scoop
of vanilla ice cream on the side!
(Maryann Skaritka 8:17pm July 11, 2015)
My favorite is black raspberry cobbler or pie.
I also love your books.
(Mary Branham 11:26pm July 11, 2015)

It's definitely pie and I have too many favorites of that to settle on just one!
