New Giveaway! Now I am giving away Living In Harmony by Mary Ellis

About the book:

Living in Harmony is the first book in bestselling author Mary Ellis's New Beginnings series. It's about fresh starts and love...and how faith in God and His perfect plan for our lives provides us with the peace and joy we desire. 

Amy King--young, engaged, and Amish--faces difficult challenges in her life when she suddenly loses both of her parents in a house fire. Her fiancé, John Detweiler, persuades her and her sister Nora to leave Lancaster County and make a new beginning with him in Harmony, Maine, where he has relatives who can help the women in their time of need.

John's brother Thomas and sister-in-law Sally readily open their home to the three newcomers. Wise beyond his years, Thomas, a minister in the district, refuses to marry Amy and John upon their arrival, suggesting instead a period of adjustment and counseling. During this time Amy discovers an aunt who was shunned. She wishes to reconnect with her, but this puts a strain on her relationship with John.

Can John and Amy find a way to live in happily in Harmony before making a lifetime commitment to one another?

My thoughts: I don't have this book so I can't comment on it. 

Now for the question.... What intrigues you about the description of this book?

This story released August 1st from Harvest House Publishers. A winner will be chosen using the Randomizer program next Sunday. Best wishes to you all.

I think what intrigues me is that her parents died in a house fire and her diencephalic is wanting her to start a new life with him. Could something good come from all of the bad? Or will they be beginning a relationshfora way from her family and friends for all of the wrong reasons? I can't wait to read this book! Thanks for the opportunity to win it!

The cover of this book intrigues me as well as the fact that it is about new beginnings. I think that there are times that most of us have to go through new beginnings.

I'm intrigued by the aunt being shunned -- why was she shunned by her community -- what type of relationship will Amy and her aunt have -- will this ruin her relationship with John?

I would like to win this book. It's intriguing because it takes place in Maine, and there haven't been any other Amish books that took place in that setting.
