Product Description

Product Description

Best-selling author of Amish Christian Romances, Sarah Price introduces readers to the world of the Amish in Fields of Corn, the first book in her Amish of Lancaster Series. Based in part on the author's real experiences living among the Amish, readers will get a glimpse into the lives of the Lapp family.

In Fields of Corn, Shana Slater, a non-Amish woman from out of state, doesn't realize that her life is about to change when she pulls into the Lapp farm in Leola, Pennsylvania, to inquire about renting a small apartment over a mule shed. Yet, the price is right and the rolling fields of corn present a peaceful place for her to retreat when she is not working in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

Her curiosity about the Amish way of life is piqued when she befriends Emanuel Lapp, the son of her landlord. As she learns about the Amish through his eyes, she quickly realizes that the Amish way of life is more than just religion and a plain way of living. She also discovers that the more she learns, the more she is unexpectedly falling for much more than their plain and simple lifestyle. When two worlds collide, which will survive and at what cost?

Based in part on the author's experience living on an Amish farm, Fields of Corn presents a sweet and authentic love story.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good Amish read May 12 2009
By Poetmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoy "Bonnet Books" (Amish fiction). I've read many Beverly Lewis books and love her style of writing. I was looking around for something different and came upon this book. It was written from an Englisher's view (Shana) and how she came to fall in love and marry into the Amish community. The only thing I would have enjoyed more, personally, is if the book showed more reminiscing of the main character Shana. You have snippets here and there in the beginning of her life as a young woman in the world. Then toward the middle of the book you learn of her family when they visit her on the Amish farm. But as she slowly crosses over to the Amish, it would have been nice to have her reminiscing back on her upbringing, losing close friends, etc. Making you more aware of how difficult it must have been.
All in all I thought the book was a good read and I recommend it to anyone who loves Amish fiction.

This is an excellent story of the combination of Amish & English life, following the romance & life of two lovers who marry & learn about one another's lives, beliefs, etc. I enjoyed it very much & would like to read more by this author.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read Feb. 28 2011
By Dorothy - Published on Amazon.com

I read this in one day. Excellent insight into the Amish Community and how they view Englishers. Having read many Amish Fiction Novels, this was truly different. I felt sorry for Shana as she struggled to not only fit into the Community but to being Christian. I don't want to be a spoiler but would recommend this book whether you are a beginner in reading Amish Fiction or you have read many different authors. Loved it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book, well written for the most part, enjoyed it a great deal Aug. 24 2011
By Meya - Published on Amazon.com

I like Amish fiction, but many times am left disappointed due to bad writing and total lack of research. This book seems to conquer those issues, and leaves you with a decent story and what seems to be a fairly accurate depiction of Amish life. (keeping in mind that not all Amish live the same way)

It is a bit of a stretch for the female lead to make such a drastic change in her life...had there been a bit more back story to her character, it might have made that change more acceptable. That said, it is still well done.

Many times the Amish, especially the men, are portrayed as harsh and unfeeling. This book doesn't portray them that way at all. It does seem as if the author actually has spent some time with actual Amish families, and she does a good job of describing their day to day busy lives.

I really enjoyed this book, and was able to not focus on the lack of character background of the female lead. I will be looking at more of the this author's writing.

4.0 out of 5 stars A little different twist April 21 2009
By 2Okies - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like to read Amish fiction. Beverly Lewis is one of my favorite authors, and very few measure up to her standards, in my opinion. However, I saw this title offered as a Kindle book, and decided to try it.
I found it a little different story than most books of this kind. The main character, Shanna, is "English" or non-Amish. She was raised with very little religious background. She relocates to Amish country due to her job, and rents a small house from an Amish family. She becomes friends with their adult son, which is unusual in itself. The Amish usually do not encourage friendships with outsiders, especially "dating" friendships.
The friendship blossoms, and she comes to appreciate their quiet, Godly ways, and the peaceful way they live their lives.
I will not spoil the book for others that may want to read it, but the story is very thought-provoking, and provided some insight into the basis behind the Amish way of life.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I only wish it had a sequel!
