A “FIRST LOOK” at my novel: “A Mother For Leah” – YA Amish Fiction

“A Mother For Leah” by Rachel Miller

The First book in my Daughters of Windy Gap trilogy

A Mother for Leah Cover 2Leah Fisher has lost her mother and, as much as they try, older sisters just are not the same.

She is rapidly approaching womanhood and the lack is becoming more difficult to bear every day.

Samuel Fisher has always had a special place in his heart for Leah. She does more than her fair share of work and she throws herself into every project so strongly, he is beginning to worry about her.

Will he be able to guide her through the years to come without a woman’s help?

As much as he loved Elizabeth, he finally realizes that she would want him to remarry, to move on and find happiness again.

There’s only one problem… Of the eligible women in his community, none of them are near the proper age. His choices are limited to girls the same age as his eldest daughters or the widow Yoder who is at least thirty years his senior.

Will he be able to find a proper bride in one of their neighboring communities? And if he does, would she be willing to leave her family and community to come live with him or will he have to make the necessary sacrifice, leaving his own community to make certain his family has the mother they so desperately need?

The book is part one of a trilogy that follows the life and love of three young women in the Windy Gap community. It is written for the Young Adult lovers of Amish Fiction and it deals with some very serious issues that face young women today.

I pray these books appeal to young women and perhaps… help them prepare for womanhood.

GOD Bless you!
