I gave horse-back riding lessons on my farm and both Amish and non-Amish teens hung around together in the arena. I saw a lot of friendships forged and flirting going on and the idea of Rose and Noah's forbidden love story blossomed in my mind.(less)

Hi Martine! Thanks for reading my books. I'm glad you're enjoying them. If you read the Wings of War series, there is actually a part in the second book, GAIA, set in an Amish community. I plan to write a couple more books in Serenity's Plain Secrets See Full Answer

“It was strange how in that moment of tragedy, it had seemed so unreal, like an old-fashioned movie reel playing on a screen for my eyes only. The pain and broken heart were blocked off for a little while, leaving me numb with disbelief. Shock is what Dad called it. But after a while, the cruel reality started to seep into my tissues, and my body became a sponge, just sucking it all up until, finally, there was so much grief inside, I couldn't help feeling it.
That's how it happened for me. First, the numbness right after she died, next the agonising pain and then the place I was at now—the land of perpetual depression.”
Karen Ann Hopkins, Temptation

“Pressing my head to his heart, I listened hard, straining to hear any gurgle or murmur of life. Hearing nothing, I felt the shock settle into my mind, slowing it down and then turning it off.
"Don't leave me, Noah. Please, don't go," I whispered into the darkness as the light spray of rain touched my face.
If only I could turn back time.
I would tell him yes.”
Karen Ann Hopkins, Temptation

“I'd never reacted to a girl this way before. My body was on fire when I was around Rose, and when I wasn't with her, all I did was think about her. Today had been the longest day of my life, dragging on forever until it was finally time to go meet her in the field.”
Karen Ann Hopkins, Temptation

“Success is sweeter and sweeter if long delayed and gotten through many struggles and defeats.”
Amos Bronson Alcott

“There can be no assumption that today's majority is 'right' and the Amish and others like them are 'wrong.' A way of life that is odd or even erratic, but interferes with no rights or interest of others is not to be condemned because it is different.”
Warren E. Burger Spupreme Court Justice
