Amish Forever - Volume 1 - The Stranger [NOOK Book]

Overview

Ava Troyer never really considered the possibility of life outside of the warm, protective Amish community. Even during her state-mandated schooling through the eighth grade, she would dreamily fantasize about whether any of the other Amish boys in the history class right after lunch was going to be the father of her children, or if she would meet the man of her dreams from another state, an exciting possibility.

Overview

Ava Troyer never really considered the possibility of life outside of the warm, protective Amish community. Even during her state-mandated schooling through the eighth grade, she would dreamily fantasize about whether any of the other Amish boys in the history class right after lunch was going to be the father of her children, or if she would meet the man of her dreams from another state, an exciting possibility. But the wreck that killed her father and almost killed Ava, that early Sunday morning, at the hands of an all-night reveler, changed everything. The young man in military fatigues that pulled her to safety spoke Pennsylvania Dutch to her, but he wasn’t Amish. Or was he? And how could she be so powerfully attracted to a young man about to go overseas to war, something she fiercely believed was wrong?
Roger Rheinheimer spent the first eighteen years of his life in northern Indiana. His father was the only doctor for a small town of 1200, and had a hitching rail on a side street by his office for the Amish patients. His father bought an eighty acre farm, and Roger and his older brother worked it, raising cattle and growing crops.
While he was still in high school, Roger learned woodworking skills from Elmer Schlabach, his Amish mentor. They built houses in the old-fashioned tradition, from hand-mixing the concrete for the foundations to hand-nailing the shingles. The only phase they did not do was the electrical. To this day, Roger enjoys using his wood crafting skills, making acoustic guitars and furniture.
Roger earned an undergraduate degree in Behavioral Psychology from a small private college in the Shenandoah Valley, took a Creative Writing class, loved it, and published a short story called My Brother. He was a regular contributing writer to the college newspaper.
Roger has two novels in print and ebook, Amish Snow and Yield Spread: a novel.
Crystal Linn is a free-lance writer and award-winning poet who teaches a variety of creative writing classes. Her third book, Poetry for Friends, is scheduled to be released in the spring of 2012. She lives in the greater Seattle area where she enjoys reading mysteries, writing poetry and sailing with friends and family.

    Very disappointed!

    Wish the other review was there before I purchased this. Really what a waste of my money, wish I could get it back! Don't buy this scam of a book. It is only 10 pages, I like the story so far but i will not pay a dollar for each chapter. Shame on all who were involved with this ripoff!

    Don't waste your money.

    A good start to a story, but with only 10 pages, it's not complete. Not worth buying.

    Thank you, reviewers!

    I was about to buy this "book"...thanks to your reviews, I will stay away from these authors. Shame on you, Barnes and Noble, for selling incomplete works without warning your trusting customers.

    disappointed

    The writing was good and held my interest. However I was very disappointed to find only 10 pages to volume 1. Had also gotten volume 2, it was 14 pages long.

    What a scam !

    Thought I was getting a book. This author is SELLING EACH CHAPTER !!! I will never buy another one of his books. Thought I was buying a series and realized after I bought 4, that it was a RIP OFF !! Good story, but he shoukd have just sold the book as a book and not a series. I won't see how it ends, because I am too mad to buy the other chapters !

    price

    This is just the first chapter of a book. You have to buy all twelve chapters to receive the entire book. It would have been an interesting book to read if it was really a book. Not worth $12.

    I can't believe I paid 99 cents for this sorry excuse of a book. These guys should take lessons from Amy Ckipston Books. Not worth 5 cents!!!!!
