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 been wondering that myself. I've read several books over the last year, both Christian and secular, that are Amish fiction. It does make for very interesting stories, but it made me wonder why there is so much of it out there right now.

I don't believe I've heard of her books, but I've been reading Amish books for years now. I have 2 or 3 different sets of them.
