Amish Books

Work in progress ... pardon my dust ...

     I love reading and learning about the Amish.  Inspirational Amish Fiction is my favorite thing to read!  I think you might be surprised at just how many authors are entering this genre and how many of is are eating it up!  I will arrange my suggested reading list by author's last name.  I write reviews of each book I read at if you want to see the author's book synopsis or my thoughts on the books.
     If I have noted the release date for a book, I obviously haven't read it.  But if it is on this list, know that I am eagerly anticipating its release and it promises to be a great read.
