Amish Story Love

Amish Love

What’s all the hubbub about Amish fiction? Major media outlets like Time and ABC Nightline are covering it, and authors like Cindy Woodsmall are making the New York Times bestseller list regularly. What makes these books so interesting?

Check out the recent ABC Nightline piece here ( about Cindy and her titles When the Heart Cries, When the Morning Comes, and When the Soul Mends. It’s an intriguing look at Amish culture and the time Cindy has spent with Amish friends.

And don’t forget that Cindy’s new book The Hope of Refuge hits store shelves August 11, and is available for preorder now.

I have started to take an interest in Amish fiction, as it looks at a lifestyle so different to the way we live in Great Britain. I just find it fascinating.

i am just starting to get into the amish novels and 2 years ago we toured Lancaster Co in PA and had a wonderful chat with an Amish teenager who drove her buggy for us. I haven't read any of the books you mention but I have read a couple of bev lewis' books...i am very interested in amish culture.
