Win two Amish fiction novels from Harvest House!

To win this two book set by Jerry S. Eicher simply post a comment telling me why you like Amish/Mennonite fiction and if you have a favorite Amish fiction author. I'll start. I do like Amish fiction, but not all Amish fiction authors. My favorite is Cindy Woodsmall and second favorite is probably Shelley Shepard Gray. My favorite not-yet-released Amish fiction author is Kathleen Fuller. Contest for USA and Canadian residents only. I will pick a winner next Sunday. Best wishes to you!



About the book:

Rebecca Keim has just declared her love to John Miller and agreed to become his wife. But she’s haunted by her schoolgirl memories of a long ago love—and a promise made and a ring given. Is that memory just a fantasy come back to destroy the beautiful present...or was it real?

When Rebecca’s mother sends her back to the old home community in Milroy to be with her aunt during and after her childbirth, Rebecca determines to find answers that will resolve her conflicted feelings.

Faith, love, and tradition all play a part in Rebecca’s divine destiny.



About the book:

Rebecca Keim returns to Wheat Ridge full of resolve to make her relationship with John Miller work. But in her absence, John has become suspicious of the woman he loves. Before their conflict can be resolved, John is badly injured and Rebecca is sent back to Milroy to aid her seriously ill Aunt Leona.

In Milroy, Rebecca once again visits the old covered bridge over the Flatrock River, the source of her past memories and of her promise made so long ago.

Where will Rebecca find happiness? In Wheat Ridge with John, the man she has agreed to marry...or should she stake her future on the memory that persists...and the ring she has never forgotten? Does God have a perfect will for Rebecca—and if so how can she know that will?

I've never read any Amish fiction, but I know lots of people who love it, so I'm curious and would like to give it a try.

I like reading them because it helps me understand the Amish amd Mennonite better.

I enjoy Amish fiction because I've always been inspired by the way they live. Living simply is such a good way to keep the focus on the Lord. A good way to deny yourself too and make life about what He wants. Would love to read these books. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for the entry.

As for my favorite Amish Author, I'm not even sure if I've gotten one. I have read fantastic pioneer tales, specifically John Steinbeck, but I don't believe he's included. I would rather enjoy reading it though. As I frequent the Amish community here and love the culture.

I only recently became introduced to Amish fiction. I enjoy the genre because the books are wholesome. The author I read and enjoyed was Amy Clipston

I enjoy Amish fiction, but I'm not sure why. Commitment, respect for parents & leadership, caring, helpfulness, the way Christian principles are lived out - several things attract me.

My favorite Amish book is Levi's Will by Dale Cramer.

I would love to read Jerry Eicher's books. Thank you for the contest, Michelle.

I love Amish fiction, but I have to take it in small doses. My favorite Amish fiction author would have to be Cindy Woodsmall. I devoured each one of her books (very anxious for her next book to come out, too)!

Hello! Beverly Lewis is really the only Amish fiction author that I have read thus far. I live about two hours away from a very small Amish
community. They have quilt auctions and farmer's markets that I enjoy going to. I have always thought it would be interesting to visit and leave with an Amish family for a time. Please enter my name in your drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

I love the Amish because of how sincerely and seriously they view their relationship with God. I am bipolar and there are many times where nothing in my life is easy, even with medication. Reading about the Amish almost seems as if I am looking in a reverse looking glass where everything is opposite. Vanduzer1@yahoo.com

I like Amish fiction because it's fun to read about a different culture and a more simplistic lifestyle. As far as favorite authors for this genre go, I like Beverly Lewis, Cindy Woodsmall, and I just read Amy Clipston's debut and thought it was fabulous.

Yes I have read quite a bit of Amish fiction and enjoy them. Mostly I have read Beverly Lewis and Wanda Brunstetter as authors of Amish stories and enjoyed both. I do have a book by Cindy Woodsmall that I haven't read yet, so I will be reading and comparing her writing to the others in the future. Thanks for the chance to win 2 books!

I love Amish fiction, because it allows me to go to a much simpler place and imagine what life would be like without all the hustle and bustle that I currently experience. It seems like it would be so much easier to live a simpler life when I read these stories. I would love to be entered into the drawing for these 2 books.
Thanks,
Katherine
