Flap Cover Text

Come home to Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania--the beloved setting where Beverly Lewis's celebrated Amish novels began--with new characters and new stories of drama, romance, and the ties that draw people together.

"Much of the credit [for the growth of Amish fiction] goes to Beverly Lewis, a Colorado author who gave birth to the genre in 1997 with The Shunning..."

When Jodi Winfield comes to Lancaster to house-sit, the last thing she expects to find is a disheveled little girl alone on the side of the road. The young teacher is mystified when she learns there have been no reports of a missing child, and the girl herself is no help, since she can't speak English. It's as if the child appeared out of nowhere.

Then Jodi turns her attention to Hickory Hollow--and the cloistered world of the Old Order Amish--in search of answers. - (Baker Publishing Group)

The sweet scent of honeysuckle mingled with the oppressing humidity as I made the turn onto Harvest Road. A few more clip-clops of Dandy's hooves on the pavement, and just that quick, the family carriage fell still. The children were sound asleep.

"Children are ever so resilient, Maryanna," Great-Aunt Heddy had whispered today as we stood watching Sarah and her sister and brothers mingle happily with all the other Plain youngsters present. Jah, resilient...more so than their own Mamma, just maybe?

Tender thoughts of Benuel filled my heart anew. Although many expect me to remarry in due time, I can scarcely consider it. At thirty-three, I'm thinking no one will ever replace my dear husband, so why should I receive another man into my life? - (Baker Publishing Group)
