Coming soon: Book Three in the Amish Letters Series!

Words From the Heart, the third book in the Amish Letters series, releases on February 13th!

Her fingertips brushed against something else in the box of doilies. She lifted a bundle of letters, neatly tied with a thin red ribbon . . .

Ivy Yoder hasn’t heard from John King in over a year. She knows it’s time to let go of the idea that they will one day marry, but she’s humiliated to be one of the oldest single women in her Amish community of Birch Creek. When quirky Cevilla Schlabach asks her to help clean out an attic, Ivy is grateful for the distraction.

Noah Schlabach isn’t from Birch Creek, or even Ohio. His job as an auctioneer takes him around the country and away from a typical Amish life, but he still remains devoted to his family. So when his aging aunt asks him to help clean out her attic, he agrees. Plus, who knows what curious items he might find up there?

As Noah and Ivy work side by side, they come across a different kind of treasure: a packet of letters written during the Korean War. Soon they are swept up in the story of two young people falling in love—even as they remain determined not to fall in love themselves.

Words from the Heart is a moving story of lost love letters, fragile fears, and the beauty of taking another step forward.

Six Weeks of Giveaways: Week 4

Happy Monday everyone! Are y’all still full of turkey, dressing, and pumpkin pie? We had a bit of a non-traditional Thanksgiving dinner: steak, rice, and carrots. We still had our typical crescent rolls, pecan pie, and pumpkin pie, though. Can’t give those up! 🙂 I hope all of you had a lovely and blessed holiday.
