Releasing 10-1-15

I’m so excited to introduce you to the “people” in Anna’s Healing. This book will release on October 1. So who are these people? I’m glad you asked!

Anna Schwartz is 24 years old, Amish, and new to the Plain community of Cody’s Creek, OK. Anna agreed to live with her aunt and uncle for a year because she was at loose ends in
Goshen, IN. She’s a little overweight, a little shy, and not particularly good at things like cooking or quilting.

Jacob Graber is 26 and he’s a wanderer. Though he loves his family and his Amish faith, he enjoys traveling from place to place, finding work for a while and then moving on. That’s his plan when he lands in Cody’s Creek–to find some work and then move on. But maybe God has a different plan for Jacob.

Chloe Roberts is 32 and she’s a reporter for the Mayes County Chronicle. When her boss sends her to do a piece on Amish produce stands, she doesn’t know that she’s about to meet a lifetime friend, and that her own faith and beliefs are about to be severely challenged.

Ruth Schwartz is Anna’s grandmother, her mammi. She’s 89 years old, shrinking, and wears large glasses that make her look like an owl. Mammi is a giant in the faith. When Anna suffers a catastrophic injury, Mammi never doubts that God cares for her granddaughter.

Amazon  **  B&N  **  CBD

That’s a few of the stars in this story. Anna’s Healing is the first book in my Plain & Simple Miracles collection–three independent stories of love and family and Amish community. Each story tells of the miracles that can happen when lives are lived in service to God and to one another.

Do you have a question about this book? Leave me a comment, and I’ll be happy to answer it.

    I’m so looking forward to the new series. I’ve just pre-ordered Anna’s Healing (on but suddenly realized I’ve done that before only to find out a bit later that you were offering a special. I’d rather wait a few days and save a few dollars (to use on the next book of course) if that’s going to happen again. Can you comment or is this an off limits question? Thanks either way.

      No questions are off limits! The honest answer is I don’t know. Amazon is currently showing $7.99 in book and $11.09 in print. In the past they haven’t gone below that in the first few months. I hope that helps, and thanks for stopping by my blog,

    I read the cast of family and found everyone interesting. Where can the three books besides Amazon. I read you offered your specials again. Where can they be. I want all three. Thank you very much.
