Giveaway: An Amish Kitchen

Amish Kitchen

I don't know about you, but I love it when fiction incorporates food. A heartwarming story that is punctuated by recipes? Sign me up, yo.

And now, I'm ready to give away a copy of An Amish Kitchen, just such a book. Here's the synopsis:

- - - - -

The Amish Kitchen is the Heart of the Home – and the Ideal Setting for Stories of Love and Hope.

Fall in Paradise, Pennsylvania always brings a brisk change in the weather. This time also provides unexpected visitors, new love, and renewed hope for three women.

Fern has a green thumb for healing herbs and flowers, but longs for love to bloom in her life. The next-door neighbor’s oldest son Abram comes running into Fern’s kitchen seeking help for his little sister. The crisis soon leads to a promise of romance—until an incident threatens to end their growing attraction.

Nearby, Hannah runs her parents’ bed and breakfast, Paradise Inn—but her life feels nothing like Paradise. She longs for a man of integrity to enter her life, but never expected him to knock on the front door looking for a room. Will she be able trust Stephen with her future once she discovers his mysterious past?

When a storm blows a tree onto Eve’s farmhouse, she has little choice but to temporarily move her family into her parents’ home. Outside of cooking together in the kitchen, Eve and her mother can’t agree on anything. But this may be just the recipe for hope in healing old wounds.

Three Amish stories—each celebrating love, family, and faith—all taking place in a tight-knit community where the kitchen truly is the heart of the home.

I love all fall pies! I can't think of one that I don't like. Apple and pear pies start fall, then the pumpkin and nut pies move in! However, I would walk 10 miles for a slice of a good sour cream raisin pie! I would love to read this book in your give away!

If we are talking fall/Thanksgiving, my favorite to bake is traditional pecan pie. During the rest of fall, my favorite is apple (I live in Washington state - we grow the delicious apples!)

Apple pie, hands down! When there's one baking in the oven, I wish my nostrils were bigger so that I can inhale the goodness more.

My favorite fall pie is either Pecan Pie or Warm Apple Pie (I don't like it cold. Yuck.) This looks like a great book!
