Book Description

Review A Promise for Miriam is written from the heart with great respect for the details of Amish life. A special treat is finding the setting to be near my home town of Cashton, Wisconsin. Vannetta Chapmans story will take you in and warm your heart as you read this delightful Amish romance novel. ?Kathy Kuderer, proprietor, Village Shops at Down a Country Road A Promise for Miriam is an interesting read from beginning to end, with a heart-warming and delightful story of Plain people. ?Nora Knapik, Inn at Lonesome Hollow I thoroughly enjoyed Vannetta?s look at the Amish of southwestern Wisconsin. Her heroine, Miriam, rings with authenticity. The characters have realistic imperfections and encounter plenty of challenges to keep readers turning the pages. Vannetta?s hero, Gabriel, is multi-dimensional and well-crafted. It was a joy to witness his change of heart. I eagerly look forward to the next installment of the delightful Pebble Creek Amish series. ?Mary Ellis, author of An Amish Family Reunion There is never a dull moment in this book. There are intertwining events that keep you guessing at all times. The characters became part of me. Their feelings became mine. I felt their challenges, joys, pains and successes. That is what a good book does for me. It satisfies me in all of these aspects. I am anxiously and impatiently waiting for the next book!! When you read a book in a day and a half, you know you have found the reading material that you enjoy and that is well written. ?Karla Hanns, Wow! And that still doesnt describe how wonderful A Promise for Miriam turned out to be. Vannetta did an awesome job pulling me into the lives of Miriam, Gabe, and Grace. I lived with them for a whole day?the amount of time it took me to read the book?and loved every minute of it. ?Ginger Solomon A well written book that will pull you into reading one more chapter...and one more chapter. ?Jo Huddleston, I like this author, Vannetta Chapman, as she shows the humanness of an Amish community?not just the peculiarities derived from their faith and connecting lifestyle choices. There?s a struggle theme that?s true for all people, not only the Amish. ?Alan Daugherty, Angelkeep Journals I found A Promise for Miriam to be a charming story. And, I was honored to be asked to answer many questions Vannetta had about the Amish after she read my first non-fiction book, Amish in Wisconsin. She sought authenticity in her writing, and I offered her my firsthand answers to her questions. I commend her for that honesty and accuracy. ?Richard Lee Dawley, Amish Insight, Read more About the Author Vannetta Chapman writes inspirational fiction full of grace.
