Thursday on Amish Wisdom: The Amish Bride and Courting Cate with Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould

Tune in on Thursday at 4:00 pm Central! To listen in – go here and just click on the player in the top right corner. 

I’m thrilled to be welcoming Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould back to the show this week. These two authors have teamed up once again for the next book in their Christy Award winning series, The Women of Lancaster County. The latest installment, The Amish Bride, tells the story of a Mennonite woman and an Amish man, and the conflict that arises when the sparks start to fly. Then during the last segment of today’s show we’ll turn all ears to Leslie and her other new release, Courting Cate. Tune in and leave a comment at the show page for a chance to win a copy of the books. Winners will be notified next week via email.

Watch the trailer:

More about The Amish Bride:

More about Courting Cate: In Paradise, Pennsylvania, Cate Miller is known more for her sharp tongue and fiery temper than her striking appearance. Her sweet and flirty sister, Betsy, on the other hand, seems to have attracted most of the bachelors in Lancaster County!

But the sisters’ wealthy father has made one hard-and-fast rule: older Cate must marry first, before younger Betsy can even start courting. Unfortunately, untamable Cate has driven away every suitor–until Pete Treger comes to town, that is.

Prodded by the men of the area, Pete turns his attention to winning Cate’s hand. But is his interest true or is there a scheme at play?

More about Leslie: Leslie Gould, a former magazine editor, is the author of numerous novels, including Beyond the Blue and Garden of Dreams. She received her master of fine arts degree from Portland State University and lives in Oregon with her husband, Peter, and their four children.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
