Growing up, I always read horse books and watched cowboy movies. Throughout my life, I have read a ton of books about Native Americans and the Civil War. When I moved to a community that was populated by Amish and Mennonites, it came to my attention that living in this area was the closest thing to going back in time. Now, I love Amish books, because they have the essence of those wonderful by-gone years, yet, the events taking place in these books are possibly happening in the here and now.
I discovered that many Facebook pages about Amish books are managed by specific publishing houses to promote their own titles. This fact limits the variety of books they can share with you.
If you are on Facebook, please check out Amish Books and "Like" it! If you hear of any books about the Amish, please feel free to share them with all of us on this Facebook page. Here is the link for Amish Books:
I will gladly post any Amish book on this page. My goal is not to decide which are "good" or "poor" but to make you aware of as many titles as possible. I'm sure that different readers will connect with different authors, depending on their interest. Some are looking for romance novels while others may be interested in farm life or religious views.
Under the Heavens, is more of the type about life on an Amish farm. As the series title (Amish Horses) suggests, there is a focus on horses, yet it includes a little romance and religion to boot.
