If you know me in real life – you’ll know that I’m an Amish Fiction Junkie. Well, and if you are one of my many online friends – I suppose now know too! (Don’t trust me with a secret! Ha!) I have been a long time reader of Beverly Lewis. There are just a few times in my month that I really just want to hunker down with a book, get lost in the characters. I feel inspired to bake, to rise early, to care for my husband, to build character in the children, and not to mention the longings I get while reading . . . . Cinnamon Rolls, Root Beer, Sho Fly Pie, Pie, Pie, Cookies and Coffee and Pie.
We watched The Shunning as a family – I had grand plans of hosting a girl’s party – but I think I’m the only Amish Fiction reader of my current in town friend set. The boys didn’t let me down, they were really into it, surprisingly. My only downside to the movie – if you are a series book reader – ya get right into that first book, all the characters are richly set, and then . .. last page. Oh the Agony. Happens in the movie too. Waiting for the next one, as usual. You can find out more information at the Website, FB Page and Trailer.
