My grand daughter, jessie, got me started with the Amish Christian fiction; now i am an addict for sure! Get them from the library site online and son picks them up for me. Read ALL Beverly Lewis books and keep adding more and more authors to my list. My favorite type of book; keeps my mind cleaned out and more healthy and on things of the Lord; keeps my mind off my troubles and off my self pity. lol.
I am very interested in Amish fiction, but I am kind of a wimp about buggy crashes, or too much death and sadness. So I gave up on reading them because it seemed like the authors always used that to bring excitement to what would otherwise be a rather plain life. I'm interested in the simple joys and trials of life. What would you say are the gentlest Amish books you have read? Something more along the lines of the Little House books where the troubles are usually related to crop failure etc. instead of tragedy...
Amish romance is a literary subgenre of Christian fiction featuring Amish characters, but written and read mostly by evangelical Christian women. An industry term for Amish romance novels is "bonnet rippers" because most feature a woman in a bonnet on the cover, and "bonnet ripper" is a play on the term "bodice ripper" from classic romance novels.[1]
