Hi Clara,

I'm sorry I didn't get to your question earlier!

I'm so glad you enjoyed Hannah's Choice! The second book in the series, Mattie's Pledge will be available in September. You'll have to ask your bookstore to stock that one, too.

Sorry to say my other three books, all published by Love Inspired, are now out of print. You can still purchase e-books and used copies, but other than that, they are hard to find.

You can check with your library - they might have a source.

Other than that, I don't know of any way to order any books on the internet without using a credit card, unless you go through Paypal. You'll have to look into it.

Thank you for your interest!(less)

Love Inspired closed its Historical line in 2018, and the series was part of that line.

But I do have one last historical book coming from Love Inspired in February 2019! "Convenient Amish Proposal" is part of a special release of a few historical books by Love Inspired. :-)

All the day's long toil is past,
And each heart is whispering, 'Home,
Home at last.”
