About The Authors


Jennifer Beckstrand

I have always been fascinated by the Amish way of life and now write Inspirational Amish Romance. I am drawn to the strong faith of the Plain people and admire the importance they put on enduring family ties. I have visited and studied Amish communities in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where I met with a bishop and a minister as well as several Amish mamms, dats, and children. It has always impressed me at what salt-of-the-earth people they are. My interactions with these kind people have been some of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I have a dear Amish friend with whom I correspond in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. She helps me keep my facts straight and gives me inspiration for my stories.
My goal is to write uplifting, inspiring stories with happy endings and hopeful messages. If my books make readers want to give themselves a big hug or jump up and down for joy, I’ve done my job. I am a member of Romance Writers of America and American Christian Fiction Writers and am represented by Nicole Resciniti of The Seymour Agency.

Why Amish Inspirational Romance?
I love their dedication to serve God. I visited Amish Country in Ohio many times. They work hard and have such a close knit friendship with each other. It’s heartwarming and uplifting. At the same time, they face hardships and difficult problems just like we do.

God answered my prayers and gave me the best mentor, author, and friend, Patricia Campbell, to hone my skills. I’m blessed to have Dawn Dowdle as my agent, and John S. from Kensington as my editor.

I’m thank for you, the reader, for being interested in my book!

I’d love to hear from you. www.mollyjebber.com

I have always been intrigued with the Amish culture, their gentle ways and slower-paced lifestyle. (And I love, love, love the fact that they stay married for their lifetime.) But until recently I never thought to blend this interest with my penchant for romance. Okay, okay, I'm a bit old-fashioned and even enjoy the gender roles that are present in this culture. I love to cook and take care of my family. Yes, that's me June Cleaver with a laptop. 


 
My Review
 
 
 
As soon as I turned the cover I knew I was in for a delightful treat, and while I tried to hold back and savor, I couldn’t stop page turning.
THE RELUCTANT GROOM
Jennifer Beckstrand
I have just finished reading “Returning To Huckleberry Hill” and as always I started to miss the beloved Grandparent’s Annie and Felty, and low and behold they are back here. This time one of their great grandsons is hurting, it has been three years since his beloved Mary passed away, and he is still grieving like it was yesterday.
Along comes spunky Suvie, she has had her eye on him, and she gets Annie and Felty’s help with Aaron, and of course our Anne is willing to make some delicious meals for her grandson.
Watch as Suvie starts to bring Aaron back to life, but will he continue on the road of the living, or as Mary’s mother wants, stay in mourning?
There are so many cute parts of this book, I wanted more, and Annie and Felty have a lot more grand’s in need.

Joshua’s Bride goes back to the early Amish settlement in Pennsylvania, and though the Amish are much more strict in their beliefs, this group seems very severe.
Joshua is madly in love with Madeline, but because her sister went English she is being judged by her sister’s actions. It is almost liked she is being shunned, but hasn’t done anything wrong.
She is one amazing woman, and Joshua may have trouble getting her to marry him, she doesn’t want to go against his parents. Wait and see what happens, and it is going to warm your heart.

The last story A SUMMER WEDDING IN PARADISE is so sweet and enjoyable, and we get a word fashion show by teacher Reba. We also see this girl in one bit of a mess when she shows up at her school, she was run off the road, now she was walking, and landed in a ditch full of water. She now has mud all over her, dripping water, and is limping, and then the deed doer shows up at the school to fix the roof.
Abel Weaver is in for a treat when Reba’s nieces are at it again in their matchmaking, and we get a front seat, and be ready for a few chuckles. Things do start looking up for this pair, but then an old love reappears, ugh.
Now you are going to have to pick up this book to find the answers, and they are all here. Enjoy!!
I received this book through Net Galley and Kensington Books, and was not required to give a positive review.
