Amish Love - Hotter than an Alabama Summer

Forgive me, I couldn't resist that headline! LOL! Anyway, whether you particularly like Amish stories or not, they're really hot right now. Here's some information about the Amish craze.

What’s all the hubbub about Amish fiction? Major media outlets like Time and ABC Nightline are covering it, and authors like Cindy Woodsmall are making the New York Times bestseller list regularly. What makes these books so interesting?

Check out the recent ABC Nightline piece about Cindy and her titles When the Heart Cries, When the Morning Comes, and When the Soul Mends. It’s an intriguing look at Amish culture and the time Cindy has spent with Amish friends.

And don’t forget that Cindy’s new book The Hope of Refuge hits store shelves August 11, and is available for preorder now.

Personally, I don't really like the Amish stories, but I'm definitely in the minority. They're the big bestsellers. What's your opinion? Leave me a comment, I'd love to know what you think about the Amish craze.

I LOVE Amish books. Have read Beverly Lewis and Wanda Brunstetter. This is a new author for me.
