Now in one low-priced volume, the first three novels in the acclaimed series set in the Amish community of Pleasant Valley...
Settle in to the quiet corner of Pennsylvania known as Pleasant Valley in these three novels of love, family, and the Amish community...
All of Pleasant Valley seems to think the newcomer from Lancaster County is the perfect match for school teacher Leah Beiler. Daniel Glick is a widower with three children—but his past haunts him, and Leah has secrets of her own.
Rachel is struggling to raise her young children and run her farm after her husband's death. A new life and a new love may be on the horizon for her—but only if she can discover the courage to embrace them.
Anna has come back to Pleasant Valley with a baby girl...which will surely cause a stir, since she is unmarried. But this close-knit community doesn’t know the truth about what Anna has done, and what she is running from...
Born in Pennsylvania, I now live in a century-old farmhouse in a valley in the eastern part of the state. My husband and I have a daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren in Philadelphia, a daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters in Charleston, South Carolina, and a son, daughter-in-law and and two grandchildren in Tampa, Florida. We keep the phone lines busy with our e-mails! Before I retired to write full time, I was a church education director.
I knew I wanted to become a writer when I was eight years old and picked up my first Nancy Drew mystery. "The Secret in the Old Clock" — remember that one? Somehow that dream was put on the back burner for a long time, but eventually it re-surfaced. I've written everything from educational materials to devotional articles to travel pieces to children's fiction, but the books I'm writing for Steeple Hill's Love Inspired line have to be the most satisfying I've ever done. It's such a joy to tell a romantic story that includes the spiritual lives of the characters. I'm delighted that I'm also writing romantic suspense novels for Love Inspired Suspense. And coming up next year will be a series of three Steeple Hill single titles about Amish characters.
When I'm not writing, you may find me visiting my grandchildren, helping out at church, or enjoying an evening out with my husband and friends. And several times a year you can track me down on my favorite island beach. I'll be the one in the deck chair with a new novel and a blissful expression!
