Sarah Price and Hills of Wheat!Hills of Wheat: The Amish of Lancaster

Great story! I cried at the end...


message 7: by Stanley (new)

Stanley Nice Sarah Price captures the soul and being of the Amish in all her writing. Being a fan of Amish literature, I rank her up with Beverly Lewis. This woman has the inner spirit of truth and fiction. What a novel...one of her best.


message 8: by Deloris (new)

Deloris I have not yet read an Amish fiction that has not spoken to my heart and my spirit. Oh to have lived during the times I read about in the books. I am so captivated by thier faith and how every deed and thought is with a mind to What would God do. I have been reading Amish Fiction for the last 6 months along with my Bible and can't make myself focus on some of the other materials I used to love to read. I am so captivated I just recently purchased a building for a small busines that I have. My building was constructed by the Amish in GA. That alone was the deciding factor.


message 9: by Karen (new)

Karen Niemi My grand daughter, jessie, got me started with the Amish Christian fiction; now i am an addict for sure! Get them from the library site online and son picks them up for me. Read ALL Beverly Lewis books and keep adding more and more authors to my list. My favorite type of book; keeps my mind cleaned out and more healthy and on things of the Lord; keeps my mind off my troubles and off my self pity. lol.


message 10: by Karen (new)

Karen Niemi Just finished Ruth Reid series "Heaven on Earth". Very good series; what I hate is when I have to wait for the number 2 book when the library has sent the number 3 and 4. Then I have to wait! I hate to wait!!


message 11: by Judy (new)

Judy Clouse They are all good I can't rate them. They all have a 4 star in my opinion.


message 12: by C. (new)

C. I just added several that were not listed. Hope everyone finds new FAVS. :]


message 13: by Leah (new)

Leah I am very interested in Amish fiction, but I am kind of a wimp about buggy crashes, or too much death and sadness. So I gave up on reading them because it seemed like the authors always used that to bring excitement to what would otherwise be a rather plain life. I'm interested in the simple joys and trials of life. What would you say are the gentlest Amish books you have read? Something more along the lines of the Little House books where the troubles are usually related to crop failure etc. instead of tragedy...


message 14: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Brand Hmm, that's an interesting question! I want to say that Beth Wiseman's Daughters of the Promise series doesn't have any buggy crashes in it, or Mindy Starns Clark & Leslie Gould's Women of Lancaster County series. I can think of others that don't have buggy crashes, but might discuss other sorts of tragedies.

You might want to post your question on the Fans of Amish Fiction group and see what other suggestions you get! https://www.goodreads.com/group/show/...


message 15: by Leah (new)

Leah Thank you so much, Rachel! I think you've given me plenty to get started with, and if I'm still wanting more I'll ask there. I didn't even know about that group so thanks!
