Meet the Author

Sarah Price's ancestors emigrated from Europe in 1705, settling in Pennsylvania as the area's first wave of Mennonite families. Sarah Price has always respected and honored her ancestors through exploration and research about her family history and their religion. At nineteen, she befriended an Amish family and lived on their farm throughout the years. Twenty-five years later, she now splits her time between her husband and children in the NYC Metro area and an Amish farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania where she retreats to reflect and write.

    Can not wait for the next book

    Jake swept me away. What a romantic story. I loved it. As an Englisher he had a past. The end of the story did surprise me and will bring a tear to your eye.

    Great follow-up to Fields of Corn

    You don't have to read them in order because this book focuses on Emanuel's sister, Sylvia. A great story, very different from others that I have read about the amish. Flows smoothly and kept my interst from start to finish. Love these amish books! I'm anxious to see what the author does next. I'm following her on facebook and she says that another one will be released by spring 2012.

    Sylvia and her Amish parents did not know there was a large barn

    Sylvia and her Amish parents did not know there was a large barn and a big home to the property adjoining their own property?? They had no idea who owned it??? I was almost turned off from this story at that point of reading this part, however, now I am happy I did finish the book. It was very hard to put it down; definitely keeps your interest! I was a bit 'left hanging' at the end. Overall, I really enjoyed reading, and look forward to the next book in this series.

    It was ok...

    This book seemed to move so fast that it just seemed weird is the best way I can put it. I think it lacked a true plot. I truly enjoy reading Amish Novels but this one was just odd in my opinion maybe a little bit amatuer.

    Loved this whole series.....quick read but very good... It is not necessary but I suggest you read the series in order.
    I did not but it would have helped with understanding the family.
