Beverly Lewis' New Book!


I am -very- excited!

I tried linking directly to the "preview" of the book, but it won't work! If you go to the main page about the book here, you can scroll down to where it says "related media files". Click on "The Parting Excerpt" and enjoy! :)

If you don't know of Beverly Lewis, she is one of my favorite authors. She writes about Amish people, and when I read her books, I always end up wanting to visit Amish country... I'm sure its not as picturesque as she makes it sound though :)

Here's the description from BeverlyLewis.com:

The People themselves dare to challenge the Old Ways of their heritage…and each patriarch must choose a side.

Nearly one hundred days have passed since the untimely death of Nellie Mae Fisher's beloved younger sister, Suzy, and Nellie dares again to dream of a future with handsome Caleb Yoder. But with rumors about Suzy still flying among the People, there are those who would keep the young courting couple apart…including Caleb's own father.

Meanwhile, a growing number of Honeybrook's Amish farmers are demanding tractors and other forbidden modern conveniences. When a revival adds to the tensions, passions flare. With the Old Order community pushed to the breaking point, Nellie and Caleb find their families—and themselves—in the midst of what threatens to become an impossible divide.

Lauren... the link doesn't work :(

I've read quite a few of Mrs. Lewis' books. I'm interesting in seeing what this one is about.

Hello again! I live near Amish Country. The landscape and the gardens are very beautiful. Their barns and fields are neat and well taken care of.

It's just when you get close that you realize they don't use deodorant. :-)[funny, but true for the strict]

I don't think I'd want to live that way with no phone, no electric, no car, etc...

Also, there are a lot of accidents in that area because of the buggy vs. car thing. We still like to watch the horse & buggy go down the road - what a contrast as the cars pass them by.

They are a big tourist attraction near here; a neat place to visit. Their produce and baked goods at the Farmer's Markets are always good.

Hope your book is good too!
