Volume 8 ~ Wings to Fly
It’s now a blustery February in Smicksburg, PA. The Audubon Backyard Bird Count is underway, an annual event cherished by the Amish. Many in the knitting circle are counting birds, and learning life lessons from their feathered friends.
~ Luke watched birds with Ruth for the first time and they observe how well finches get along.
~ Lizzie learns from Granny about waiting on God to gain strength so she can glide like an eagle.
~ Maryann is recovering from surgery and a judgmental heart, being cared for by unwed mother Lavina and Englisher Marge. Her love for others begins to soar.
~ Granny’s called to the bishop’s house to discuss her “addition” to Jane Austen novels and being too friendly toward the English.
~ Roman holds his breath as Amos comes from Lancaster to visit Lizzie.
A trusted English friend among many Amish in Western PA, and NY, I want to share with you about these wonderful people I admire.
Amish Knitting Circle was birthed when Trestle Press asked Suzanne Woods Fisher to write an Amish serial, and she referred them to me. Thank you Suzanne! I LOVE Trestle Press!
I write full-length novels and short story serials. I hope readers will learn a lot about Amish culture and traditions, and realize you don't have to be Amish to live a simple life.
In my Amish Knitting Circle you'll follow the lives of 6 women in a knitting circle who are knitting for charity and helping each other through life's challenges, the Amish way. An authentic Amish recipe is at the end of each edition.
Knit Together: An Amish Knitting Novel, is a complete book. Granny Weaver starts a knitting circle that's half Amish and half not. As they meet and knit and talk, they end up unifying the town made of two different cultures: Amish and English.
I'm a graduate from Seton Hill University and Andersonville Theological Seminary. In my spare time I enjoy knitting, birding, photography, watching BBC Period Drama's and spending time with family and friends.
