Amish Novels Still Hot-

     I have a number of friends that enjoy reading Amish fiction.Why? They all have different reasons, but one common thread in all of them is that they like reading about the simplicity of the lifestyle; a lifestyle that is far removed from our technological hectic lives. Some also say they love reading about the delicious home cooked Amish food mentioned in those novels. A few of the authors include the tasty recipes of the foods featured in their stories.
    Following is an article I wrote a while back on the topic, which includes my reasons for enjoying Amish fiction too. I also write Amish novels and love the research involved, especially visiting an Amish area in upstate, NY. I've been to Lancaster County in Pa also. And never will I forget the meals. Here is the link to the article:

And if you love reading Amish novels and you might also enjoy visiting, The Whoopie Pie Book Club web site:  http://whoopiepieplace.com/2014tour/   Ironically, I've never had a whoopie pie, and although I do not normally eat sugar, I just have to try one soon.
They look yummy, don't they? 


   Currently, I am reading a story by Amish author, Sarah Price. Pastures of Faith.
If you are a fan of Amish fiction, what Amish novel are you reading?
