Q&A from Beth’s Facebook Chat

 

You may have tuned in to one of my three live Facebook Chats in September. Let me tell you, I was so nervous during that first one. Trying to show the books, remain in frame, and read and respond to all the comments is not easy.

Since I didn’t get a chance to answer the many questions that were asked during my live Facebook chats, I thought it might be fun to answer some here.

Do you have Amish friends? How often do you interact with them and where are they?

I’ve been fortunate to have lots of Amish friends who have helped me on this amazing journey. My first contacts were in Lancaster County, which is the setting for The Daughters of the Promise series. From there, I was introduced to two Amish families in Colorado, which is where The Land of Canaan series takes place. I’m starting a new series soon that will take readers to Indiana, and I already have several contacts there.

Did you have any damage from the storm?

We were blessed when Hurricane Harvey came ashore. We never lost power despite the ferocious winds and heavy rain. And we stayed high and dry. A big tree fell across our yard, but it didn’t hit our house. It was a frightening experience, though. My mom, sister, and many friends live in Houston, which is where I grew up, so I stayed worried throughout the entire ordeal. Some friends lost a lot of material possessions, but those can be replaced. I’m happy to report that my family and friends stayed safe!

Did you get on the treadmill this week?

Not nearly as much as I should have, lol.

What about doing a series set in the Amish community in Florida?

I think that’s a great idea!

Do Amish read your books?

Yes, I’ve been told by several of the Amish women that they read my books.

Will there be a fourth book?

As of now, no. But never say never since The Daughters of the Promise series was slated to be a three-book series, and there ended up being six novels.

Winter Kisses by Beth Wiseman

Three generations of Stoltzfus women are all living under the same roof. At twenty-five, Naomi has never been married, and both her mother, Barbara, and her grandmother, Ruth, have recently been widowed. Each nursing broken or lonely hearts, they also each have potential suitors. When a storm on Christmas Eve forces the three couples to take shelter in the basement of the Stoltzfus homestead, secrets are revealed, hearts are opened, and all three potential grooms drop to their knees for very different reasons—a proposal, a prayer, and an epiphany.

The Christmas Cat by Amy Clipston

Emma Bontrager is spending her first Christmas alone after her husband of 45 years, Henry, passed away in July. Although the Amish don’t normally allow animals in their homes, a big, fat, orange barn cat keeps coming into Emma’s house. She shoos the cat away, but it continues to appear in her house, settling on Henry’s favorite wingchair. But the cat isn’t the only Christmas visitor: a group of young people help bring the Christmas spirit to Emma, reminding her that love and hope abide.

Snow Angels by Kelly Irvin

As a young man enjoying his rumspringa, David Byler gave his heart to an Englisch girl, but he eventually realized he couldn’t give up his Plain faith and family for her, so he let her go. He’s found a new love in his Bee County Plain community, Molly Shrock. Molly has been patient, waiting for the man she loves to love her back. Just as he is ready to propose, David makes a startling discover: Bobbie McGregor, his Englisch love, is back. Will Molly’s prayers for a Christmas love be answered?

Home for Christmas by Ruth Reid

When a misdirected GPS sends Ellie Whetstone to the wrong address, she inadvertently finds herself breaking into the home of Amish man, Ezra Mast. Ellie hopes to fix up the house left by her aenti and sell it quickly, but a series of run-ins with Ezra and his young daughter have her questioning whether a hasty sale is the right move. Could this new place with its slower pace be the right home for Ellie?
