ABOUT THE BOOK

Release Date: March 1, 2018
Genre: Inspirational Historical Amish Fiction
Love in Plain Sight
As nanny for her nephew, Judith Lapp’s finally part of a vibrant, joyful Amish community instead of living on the outskirts looking in. But teaching her neighbors’ Englischer farmworker to read Pennsylvania Dutch wasn’t part of her plan. And the more time she spends with Guy Hoover, the more he sparks longings for a home and family of Judith’s own.
Guy figured he would never be truly accepted by his Amish employers’ community—even though the Mast family treats him like a son. But Judith’s steadfast caring shows him that true belonging could be within his reach…if he and Judith can reconcile their very different hopes—and hearts.

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.

I have not read much Amish fiction, so I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the storyline, characters, and emotional depth of the plot. Judith and Guy were so adorable and sweet in their interactions and care for one another. Both characters grew by the end of the story, especially Guy who received unconditional love and wisdom from the Masts. My heart broke for him in learning about his childhood, his biological father’s neglect, and his longing even as an adult to have a connection and “be a family” with his father. Lastly, I don’t know much about Amish culture, so I thoroughly enjoyed this glimpse into Amish traditions and practices. This sweet, gentle romance receives four stars!
