Guest post by novelist Amy Clipston. Amy shares about her new book, A Place of Peace, in the normal type below; and in the Bold type, she shares about life events which have laid this story on her heart.
A Place of Peace is the third installment of my Kauffman Amish Bakery Series, featuring an Amish family in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
My fascination with the Amish way of life began after my father, a German immigrant, told me that the Amish speak the same dialect as my German relatives. I visited Lancaster as a child, and their culture made an impression on me.
In A Place of Peace, tragedy brings Miriam Lapp back to her family’s Amish community, the place where she left her family, here identity, and her heart.
Amidst Miriam’s grief over her mother’s death, and the consequences of painful lies from her past, Miriam is forced to face the people who rejected her. Losing her one-time fiancé and being shunned by her father becomes an excruciating test of her faith.
