Best-selling author Cindy Woodsmall engages readers with one young Old Order Amish woman’s determination to flee from a bad decision and save a farm and the Amish man determined to see that she fails.

When Sylvia Fischer turned down her beau’s offer of marriage, she expected him to give her the bit of time and space she’d requested, believing they would eventually be wed.

A Sound Among the Trees by Susan Meissner

A house with a turbulent Civil War history becomes home to a new bride and stepmother in Susan Meissner’s richly absorbing tale of a line of women stuck living in patterns of regret.

On a historic Fredericksburg street, Holly Oak stands in quiet elegance. The cannonball wedged between stone and timber is a silent reminder of what the house endured in the Civil War. When Marielle Bishop marries into the Holly Oak family, she soon hears rumors that the ghost of Susannah Page, a Yankee spy, haunts the halls and she uncovers letters written during the Civil War. Adelaide, 83, who also lives there says it’s not her great-grandmother who is the ghost, but the house itself.

Dr. David Chambers is a biblical archeologist of some fame and held in high regard by his peers. But what began as an effort to prove the authenticity of the biblical narrative has become a burden. Angry at his father who was too busy to attend his mother’s death bed, and years later abandoned by the love of his life, Chambers has grown disenchanted until he makes one more dig.

The Christmas Singing by Cindy Woodsmall

Experience the holidays with the Plain folk in this rich, heartwarming novella about everyday gifts and second chances from best-selling author Cindy Woodsmall.

Amish Mattie Eash was the Christmas Eve “precious gift” for her parents, who enjoyed a
special moment with carolers shortly before their only daughter’s birth. But at 22, Mattie no longer shares her parents’ love of Christmas songs and singings. Her old beau Eli broke up with her three years before on her birthday and she still feels the sting.

When Mattie returns home to make wedding cakes for her cousin and aunt, she and Eli are thrown together and the Amish man is forced to face both his still-strong feelings for Mattie and the lie he told her to protect her.
