“A word is like an arrow–both are in a hurry to strike.” Amish proverb



Anna’s Crossing is trickling into the stores! It’s a story of the first Amish who crossed the Atlantic in 1737 on the Charming Nancy ship. There’s drama, humor, true-to-life historical information, unexpected twists and turns and, of course, love. Lovely reviews are tumbling in: RT gave it 4 stars; Publisher’s Weekly said, “This book is a winner.” From CBA Retailer: “Fisher’s extensive research shines in this well-written historical novel as she recreates life aboard a ship in 1737…  Unexpected twists and turns, and a surprise ending add up to a thoroughly enjoyable read.”

To celebrate, I’ll be posting history about the Amish in shareable, pinnable “boxes” on social media.  And I’m also doing a pre-order campaign. During the month of February, if you buy a copy of Anna’s Crossing, you can be entered into an iPad giveaway


In early May, The Heart of the Amish: Life Lessons on Peacemaking and the Power of Forgiveness releases. This impactful non-fiction book is for each one of us–because we all have someone to forgive or need to be forgiven by someone. It impacted me as I researched and wrote it! It changed my thinking about relationships.
