Welcome to The Amish Nanny’s Sweetheart blog tour and giveaway, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
Genre: Inspirational Historical Amish Fiction
I just have to say that I love reading Amish stories where a non Amish person is considering joining the community. I’m not sure what there is about it, maybe my own fantasy of living with the Amish (part time of course), maybe seeing that people can change and reinvent themselves, or whatever the case. I just think it’s neat. So that part of the storyline immediately spoke to me. In fact, Guy was my favorite character. Yes, he had flaws and he came from unfortunate circumstances. But his character grew a lot in this book, and it was lovely to read.
I’ve been a fan of Jan Drexler for awhile now, and wasn’t surprised when I started to love this book. She has a way of writing a story that makes you feel included in the plot. Judith was my friend, and I could hear myself giving her advice about an array of topics, from her role as a nanny, to her love interest! I felt this was a fun storyline, and one that I will revisit from time to time. And though it has a historical setting, I have to admit that I felt the storyline could apply today. Maybe in a future novel we will see just that!
Bottom line is this is a fantastic read that Amish fiction fans will adore. With a beautiful setting and lovely characters, you’ll feel right at home. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Jan grew up surrounded by books and storytellers. With Pastors and Teachers populating both sides of her extended family, we aren’t surprised that she wanted to be a first-class storyteller herself.
Born and raised in Michigan, Jan is the descendant of Amish, Mennonite and Brethren immigrants who settled in Berks, Somerset and Lancaster Counties in Pennsylvania in the mid-1700’s. The descendants of these immigrants pioneered in Maryland, Ohio, and finally Elkhart and LaGrange Counties in Northern Indiana in the 1850’s.
During the years when Jan was raising and homeschooling their children, she and her husband moved nine times in thirty years, finally landing in South Dakota where they enjoy incredibly Michigan-like weather. A northerner is always a northerner!
The ideas for Jan’s books come from the stories told by her parents and grandparents, seasoned with a lot of research and imagination.
