    American Pie: Shoo Fly for Valentine’s Day

    This is the true story of Ora-Jay and Irene Eash, Amish farmers from northwest Montana whose lives changed in an instant when a semi-truck struck the family buggy, killing their two young daughters. After the accident, the couple turned to their Amish community for comfort, but they remained haunted by the thought that they might not see their girls again in heaven. Would their deeds be good enough? Eventually Ora-Jay and Irene learned that grace—not works—was enough to ensure their place in eternity. But with that knowledge came the realization that they could no longer live in an Amish community that didn’t share this precious belief. Could they sever their connection to the Amish family they loved?

    When I sat down with my Bible, devotional book, and journal yesterday morning I was empty. If anyone wanted to escape from “life” at that moment, it was me. But as I began to dwell on God’s truths, everything began to change. I was reminded that Jesus never intended for me to carry my burdens alone.

    Q with Tricia Goyer. Beyond Hope’s Valley is the third of a three-book series. Do you find it harder or easier to write a series? For me writing a series is easier. When I start a novel the hardest part of the book is the first ten chapters. I’m still trying to figure who the character is, what she wants and what’s stopping her. Chapter 1 is like a first date, and I’m just skimming the surface ....

    I can’t tell you how worried I was when I sat down to write my Amish novels. I’d written many historical novels, but it’s different writing about contemporary people who are living a very unique lifestyle. Everyone has a concept of what it means to be Amish, but how true are our stereotypes? The more I met Amish friends and got to know their lifestyle and heart, I discovered stereotypes just scratch the surface.

    Janet and I sat in the back of the barn with the grandmothers when the service began at 9 a.m. The service started with the congregation singing hymns very slowly in German. A male song leader began the first syllable of each line, and then the rest of the congregation joined in.
