Martha’s Story – New Release

Martha’s Story is the first book of a new series and it is a fiction book revolving around an Amish community in Ohio. Martha’s sister fell in love with a man outside the community and she moved away. This created a big void for Martha. The book unfolds involves her vacillations between the Amish and English worlds as well as her courage, faith and search for true love.

You can pick it up here: Martha’s Story . If you belong to Kindle Unlimited, you can read it for free. (They also have a free 30 day trial to test it out).

I have gotten requests for an Amish series and have always been interested in the Amish Communities since a childhood trip to Pennsylvania with my family. Later, in college, I had a friend who grew up in an Amish family and we had many talks. Both this new series as well as the first series (Montana Mail Order Brides) deals with young women looking for answers and seeking happiness.

The show “Return to Amish” is very popular now, and shows conflicts between the Amish and English worlds and journeys of several people. My own series, will be family-friendly so that all ages can read it. I also am having each book in the series have a happy ending as people have told me that’s what they look for in their reading breaks away from daily pressures! I’m the same way, so these have a strong similarity to the mail order bride series. If you’ve never read anything before about Amish culture, I hope you will enjoy this. Each book in the series will have a different person in the Wilkes County Community featured. Some may be conflicted between the Amish and English worlds, others may temporarily want to test out the English world and finally others are very happy to stay solely within their tradition. I hope you’ll enjoy both series. If you’ve only read Amish stories and want to try Mail Order Bride novellas, I think you’ll find that there is a commonality due to the strong spiritual values, cultivated ethical principles, value of family and search for goodness, loves and true peace.

Mail Order Husband Frank

Frank_small Mail Order Husband Frank can be read by itself, but also is book 4 in the series. He is an intelligent, but somewhat blunt person in his speech! He runs the local newspaper in town and we see him dealing with problems of printing quite often! If anyone saw the movie, “Office Space”, you can appreciate this (though obviously this was before that technology)!

Charlotte has a secret identity in Albany and was a student of Leah’s (from Book One). Don’t worry, if you haven’t read book one, it isn’t necessary to do that to enjoy this book. Leah herself wrote to a man in Albany hoping to leave her life in Albany, NY behind her. Charlotte identified with her and also respected her as a teacher. Please feel free to write me or leave comments if you’ve read the book, Mail Order Husband Frank . You can read the reviews as well as preview the book at Amazon by clicking the “look inside” feature.
