On occasion I feature a new release, apart from my interviews with authors. Readers, please note: rather than giving the author's book away, I simply add commenters' names an extra time to existing drawings.
This week let's take a look at Cindy Woodsmall's novel, The Bridge of Peace (Waterbrook Press, August 2010).
A little about Cindy:
Cindy Woodsmall is a New York Times best-selling author whose connection with the Amish community has been featured on ABC Nightline and on the front page of the Wall Street Journal. She’s coauthor of an upcoming spring release, Plain Wisdom, which is a nonfiction book of touching and humorous life events written with an Old Order Amish friend.
About the book:
Headstrong schoolteacher Lena Kauffman finds herself at the center of controversy in her Amish community when a young man in her classroom refuses to submit to her authority. As her friends and family rally around her, especially longtime friend Grey Graber, things go from bad to worse when Grey’s wife, Elsie, becomes an accidental target in trouble meant for Lena. As the present unravels around them, each must find their own way through their private pain in order to find peace and a brighter future.
The Bridge of Peace is the second novel in the Ada’s House series and it returns to Dry Lake, Pennsylvania, and the beloved characters from The Hope of Refuge. The Hope of Refuge--Christy finalist, Inspirational Readers Choice Contest finalist, and a Carol Award finalist.
