This week I wanted to share with you pictures from the Amish community in Monte Vista, Colorado. If you’re receiving this blog in your email box, you might need to click on the link in order for the photographs to show. Who the Bishop Knows, the last of my novels set in Monte Vista, officially released on March 6, and I’m so pleased at the response. Thank you to everyone who has sent emails, Facebook posts, tweets, and blog comments regarding this book. You all are truly faithful, wonderful readers.

Out of respect to the Amish people that we met, I did not take pictures of them except for the one long distance shot at the sand dunes. I hope you’ve enjoyed this “visit” through Monte Vista.

Now it’s your turn. Tell me something fun that you’ve seen in an Amish community. If you’ve never been, tell me what you’d like to see. Leave a comment below, and I’ll draw one winner from each post’s comment section. If your name is drawn, I’ll send you a paperback book of my choice from my supply closet. If it’s one you already have, you can donate the unsigned copy to your local library or a friend. This week, I also have a copy of “Latte for Life” by Renae Brumbaugh Green that I’ll be giving away. Last post our winner was “bn100candg.”
