Work in Progress Update

“I love deadlines. I love order. I love knowing when to have things done, having a plan to get them done, and then I imagine I would love the feeling of submitting something on time. Life, however, has been an entirely different experience for me.” –  from Ralene Burke in a blog post at

I can so relate to this. I’ve got a full-length novel (book #3 in my Amish Journeys series) dueMay 15th, so I’m on serious writing lockdown. Life has a way of interrupting my disciplined, orderly plan. I’ve had medical appointments, bronchitis, judged a literary contest, and squeezed in time for family and friends as much as possible. Where does the time go? 

Never fear! A Beautiful Arrangement will be submitted to my editor at Zondervan very soon. ☺ Please forgive me, once again, for publishing the newsletter a few days late. ☺

Beth Wiseman, Amish fiction author, visits southern Indiana

If you follow me on Facebook, I imagine you’ve seen that I’ve been travelling to southern Indiana quite a bit recently. I recently shared a video on Facebook that I took from the deck of our little cabin overlooking the East Fork of the White River. If you missed it on Facebook, I’m posting it here on my blog.  I have a precious grandson that lives there and I spend as much time with him as I can. I have also been researching that area for my next series.

Four brand new Amish stories of coming home.

No Place Like Home by Amy Clipston

Estranged daughter Eva Dienner has been staying with her in-laws, the Riehls, since her husband was killed in a fire, but now she wants her son to meet his maternal grandparents. Upon her return, Eva finds that the man her parents always intended for her is living in their daadihaus and running the dairy farm for them for free, despite her suspicions of him taking advantage of her family. Eva knows she should put the past behind her, but is she ready to move into the future?

When Love Returns by Beth Wiseman

Hurricane Harvey forces Sarah Zook to return to the home she fled six years ago when she couldn’t face her stern parents’ reaction to her unplanned pregnancy. Upon her return, Abram King can think of nothing but the pain she caused him—until he meets Sarah’s daughter and realizes that he never really stopped loving Sarah. Sarah and Abram must find a way to face the truth of their past so they can rekindle their first love.

The Courage to Love by Shelley Shepard Gray

After the death of her Englisch husband, Irene Keim seeks a fresh start by staying with her new friends Mary Ruth and Henry Wengerd in exchange for helping them around the house. But when Mary Ruth and Henry’s son Marcus comes around, he isn’t pleased with the woman they’ve taken in and is determined to push her out. Misunderstandings abound, but both Irene and Marcus learn that people aren’t always what they seem.

What Love Built by Kathleen Fuller

Independent and headstrong, Carolyn is determined to forge ahead with the opening of her bakery, a lifelong dream, in the Birch Creek home she left ten years ago. But she’s in over her head and needs help with the cleaning, shopping, and deliveries. Carpenter Atlee Shetler is visiting Birch Creek to escape the memories of his late wife. He takes a job renovating the new bakery and finds the project—and its owner—to be much more than he bargained for. Both Carolyn and Atlee must face pains of the past if they want to have the bright future God has planned for them.
