Overview

Amish Trust by Ruth Hartzler

Rachel's grandmother in Pennsylvania left a large home to Rachel and her mother, Miriam. When the two women move from Ohio to claim the house, planning to turn it into a B&B, they are shocked to see it is in desperate need of repair. To make matters worse, their nearest Amish neighbor, Isaac, is rude to them, yet Rachel is strangely drawn to him.
Will Isaac be able to overcome his past and love again?
How will Rachel and her mother turn a derelict house into a B&B, while keeping at bay treasure hunters, rival B&B owners, and Isaac's attitude?

About the Author

Ruth Hartzler’s father was from generations of what people refer to as “Closed Open” or “Gospel Hall” Brethren. Ruth’s mother, a Southern Baptist, had years of struggle adapting to the cultural differences, and always cut her hair, which was a continual concern to Ruth’s father’s family. Ruth was raised strictly Brethren and from birth attended three meetings every Sunday at the Gospel Hall, the Wednesday night meeting, and the yearly “Conference,” until she left the Brethren at the age of twenty one. Ruth still has close friends in the Brethren, as well as the Amish, both groups descending from Anabaptists. Ruth’s family had electricity, but not television, radio, or magazines, and they had plain cars. Make up, bright or fashionable clothes, and hair cutting were not permitted for women. Women had to wear hats in meetings (what others would call church meetings) but not elsewhere. The word “church” was never used and there were no bishops or ministers. All baptized men were able to speak (preach, or give out a hymn) spontaneously at meetings. Musical instruments were forbidden, with the exception of the traditional pump organ which was allowed only if played in the home for hymn music. Even so, singing of hymns in accompaniment was forbidden.
Ruth Hartzler is a widow with one adult child and two grandchildren. She lives alone with her Yorkshire Terrier and two cats. She is a retired middle school teacher and enjoys quilting, reading, and writing.

the author clearly did not do adequate research into the amish. divorce is not allowed. if a spouse let the amish, the remaining spouse can only remarry after the death of the spouse.
