BLURB:

Housed in a rustic red barn, the Simple Gifts crafts shop celebrates the talents of the Amish of Willow Ridge—and the faith that inspires them. For the acceptance of simplicity opens the path to love.

As far as Edith Riehl is concerned, the baby twins thrust suddenly into her arms are a heaven-sent gift. Unable to conceive, she longs to be a mother with a home of her own. She’s going to abide by her promise to handsome Asa Detweiler to take care of them while he looks for their real father. And even if her domineering dat Cornelius refuses to countenance Asa’s suit, she can only pray the bachelor’s honesty and persistence will uncover the truth—even as he’s kindled an impossible hope for a love of her own…

Asa can’t understand why anyone would think he would be so dishonorable as to father babies and then abandon them. He’s determined to clear his name—but Edith’s caring ways also inspire him to help heal her wounded spirit and earn her trust. In the face of heartbreaking deception, he and Edith must find the strength to understand, forgive…and claim their own hearts’ joy.

Excerpt:

“But I tried to tell you—their mamm is dead!” Edith blurted. “Will brought the twins here until he could get through her funeral and—”

“This is Will Gingerich we’re talking about, correct?”

“Jah, and he’d accused the other fellow of—”

“We cannot have Will coming around here on the pretense of seeing his children,” Dat stated. “If he’s got no wife to raise them now, he’ll try to entice Loretta into marriage again. And that matter shall remain a closed book.”

Edith scooped Leroy into her arms and stood up so she could rock both crying babies. She was feeling as upset as they were, sensing that no matter what answers she gave her father, they would fall short. “No,” she said in a lowered voice, “Will knew it would be better not to see Loretta—”

“He could never carry on an ordinary conversation with me,” Dat said, exhaling his disgust. “Tucked his tail between his legs like a whipped dog—and if his wife bore another fellow’s kids, then Will obviously wasn’t man enough to control her. Maybe not man enough in the marriage bed, either—”

“Dat, really!” Edith gasped as her face went hot with embarrassment.

“—so no matter how you look at it, Gingerich has nothing to offer any of you girls,” her father continued in a rising voice. “I hope you don’t believe that other fellow’s promise that he’ll get to the bottom of this, any more than you believe that Will figures to claim these babies. It’s our Christian duty to return these children to their family. They’re not your responsibility, Edith.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Many moons ago—like, in 1983 while she was still a school librarian—Charlotte Hubbard sold her first story to True Story. This launched her into writing around seventy of those “true confessions” stories over the years, and she’s been a slave to her overactive imagination ever since. Over the course of her writing career, she has sold nearly 50 books—most recently, Amish romance series she’s written as Charlotte Hubbard or Naomi King.
Charlotte lived in Missouri for most of her life, so her Amish stories are set in imaginary Missouri towns. These days she lives in St. Paul, MN with her husband of 40+ years and their Border collie, Ramona.

    1. Kate, I was in the enviable position of being ASKED by my favorite editor to write Amish stories because of readers' response to the Angels of Mercy faith and family series I had written for her earlier. Amish stories were just starting to be very popular at that time, and we've all been delighted that this genre continues to resonate so deeply with readers.
