Wednesday’s Wanderer: Author Amy Clipston Plus Giveaway

A Simple Prayer

A Simple PrayerI’m excited to share A Simple Prayer, the final book in my Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel series, with you. It was bittersweet for me to write this book. This series has been an emotional journey for me as I grew to know and love the characters. It seems as if it was only yesterday when I was writing book #1, A Hopeful Heart.

Here is a blurb for A Simple Prayer:

Linda is no stranger to hardship. Now she dares to hope for a chance at love and a new beginning. As the sole survivor of a buggy accident that left her orphaned at age four, Linda Zook was reluctantly raised by her Uncle Reuben. She longs to be worthy of someone, but the lasting trauma of her injuries and embittered upbringing have destroyed her self-worth. When Hannah Peterson asks her to work at the Heart of Paradise Bed & Breakfast, she’s finally able to realize some confidence.

Aaron Ebersol left the Amish community seventeen years ago when he could no longer bear the restrictions or the constant tension with his father. Despite years of unanswered letters to his parents and the roots he’s put down in Missouri, Aaron rushes back to the Amish community of Paradise, Pennsylvania, after receiving word of his mother’s stroke. Hesitant to get too close to the family he was once a part of, he decides to stay at the Heart of Paradise Bed & Breakfast. Talking with Linda allows him to explore his feelings about his family and his position in the Amish community.

As Linda and Aaron open up to each other, their feelings for one another turn into more than friendship, and Aaron must make a decision about his future as an Amish man.

Can Linda and Aaron forgive the family members who have deceived and forsaken them? And will Aaron be able to convince Linda that she is worthy of his love?

Since A Simple Prayer is the last book, the story will answer some questions and solve a couple of mysteries that I created throughout the series. You will also see loose ends from other books tied up during the course of this story.

For those of you who are sad to read the last book in my Hearts of the Lancaster Grand Hotel series, don’t fret! I’m working on a new series, and I’m excited to share more with you soon.

Your book sounds wonderful, Amy. Thanks so much for stopping by today! Amy is graciously offering a copy of A Simple Prayer to one lucky winner.

  18. I would love to read your book Amy. Amish fiction is my favorite genre to read. Also thank you for promoting organ donation. Blessings to you and your family.

  19. Although I have been reading Christian fiction since I became one, I am very new to the Christian Amish Genre. I am now enjoying a slew of new authors and venturing here after seeing a re-telling of Pride and Prejudice by Sarah Price. It certainly piqued my interest since P&P is my all time favorite book. I have read some of Amy Clipston’s non-Amish YA books, but have yet to read her Amish fiction. I am looking forward to reading both Sarah’s and Amy’s books.

  20. I love Amy’s books I just recently read two of her books and they were wonderful can’t wait to read this one!

  21. Oh, how I would love to win. I can understand how you hate to finish a series. I feel the same thing every time I finish a book. I want to know what happens, but hate when it ends also.

  22. I am book # 3 of this series they are fantastic in fact read one of them in a day and a half so good couldn’t put it down

  23. Its hard to believe this book is the last to the series. I pass my books down to my husbands Aunt who also enjoys them. Your books were the first Amish books I had ever read. Thank you for getting me hooked, I can’t wait to read more!

  24. How have I missed this series? I read all of Amy’s books, so finding this is the final in the series makes me wonder where my head has been. Probably too much work and not enough “leisure.” Since I like to read an entire series all at once, I suppose I will not suffer too much just finding this.

  25. I look forward to reading this book! There is nothing quite like sitting and getting engrossed in a great story! Thank you for this chance.

  26. Looking forward to reading this! Thank you so much for the chance!
