Listening to Love
He’s Amish. She’s Englisch. They are best friends, despite what the gossips say. But could the rumor mill know more than they do?

Englischer Natalie Collins looks forward to Friday night suppers at Levi and Mary Shetler’s house every week: delicious food, wonderful conversation with her Amish friends, and, best of all, the presence of Levi’s older brother Lucas. Natalie and Lucas have become best friends despite their different backgrounds. They share a love of books, and he is teaching her about God in a way that she can understand.

But the closer they become, the more opinions everyone seems to have. Levi and Mary, Lucas’s family, and even Natalie’s mother—whose own life is a mess at the moment—have concerns about their relationship. Why can’t everyone understand that it’s possible to just be friends? Besides, they couldn’t be together even if they wanted to be. Lucas would never leave the Amish faith, and Natalie is Englisch and pursuing a degree in veterinary medicine.

But when a terrifying accident happens, Natalie and Lucas are forced to confront their true feelings and decide if they can stay true to themselves and each other.

Publishers Weekly gave Listening to Love a great review.
“Wiseman is at her best in this surprising tale of love and faith.”

Christian Fiction Bestsellers, May 2019

BIG thanks to readers for putting four of my stories on the ECPA Fiction Bestseller List in May. My new novel–Hearts in Harmony (Book 1 in the Amish Journeys series)–is enjoying its second month on the list since it released in March. Her Brother’s Keeper, (Amish Secrets series) an older book that’s made a comeback, is also on the list. And my stories in two novella collections are on the list in An Amish Home and An Amish Reunion.

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. ☺


And….Family Fiction Magazine featured an interview with me in their April 2019 issue.
