Showcase: THE AMISH BAKER by Marie E. Best

amishbakerA child brings them together…
Will their differing Amish beliefs pull them apart?

When his son breaks one of baker Sarah Gingerich’s prized possessions, widower Caleb Brenneman insists the boy make amends by doing odd jobs in her bake shop. A childless widow, Sarah can’t help falling for the boy…or his farmer father. But Caleb is progressive New Order Amish while Sarah holds traditional beliefs. Though they’re worlds apart, are they a perfect match?



Kimber Li Says:   A while back I researched a lot of different Christian denominations, including the Amish.  I’ve also visited businesses like this ran be the Mennonites, a related denomination.  They’re amazing!  If you ever have the chance, stop in and smell the glorious everything!  One of my favorite books is one about how to live the best of Amish ideals without changing your religion.   ALMOST AMISH by Nancy Sleeth
