A Joyful Break

A Joyful Break
Diane Craver
After her mother’s untimely death, a twenty-year-old Amish woman has a difficult decision to make: Choose to break from the Plain community and her boyfriend to live in the English world permanently...or join the Amish church.

Rachel Hershberger wants to get away from her Amish home in Fields Corner, Ohio. For a year she’s been trying to fill her mother’s shoes by taking care of her father and siblings. Before her mother died, Rachel was positive she wanted to marry Samuel Weaver, but now she can’t think about wedding plans. She blames her father for her mother’s death.
A Joyful Break


  1. Thanks for posting this, Mickie! Enjoy your Sunday!

  2. Diane and Mickie--As Diane knows, I read this novel and was so pleased that she had done such a wonderful job with the characters and plot. The Amish are not easy to write about, as not everyone knows about their lives and beliefs. But Diane does know, and she wrote an excellent story. I hope everyone will read this one--it's well worth the time. And if you do read it, you'll see that the cover is perfect.

  3. Thank you so much, Celia! I appreciate you taking the time to visit Mickie's blog! And your compliments mean the world to me because your books are wonderful and you're an amazing storyteller.

  4. As the first Amish romance I've ever read, this was a winner!
