Beth Wiseman: WESTWARD HO!
This fall, Beth Wiseman takes Amish readers where they’ve never gone before—Colorado. The author was inspired by a 2009 news report that a handful of Amish families were migrating to Colorado to escape high land prices and overcrowding back East in more established communities.
“After visiting Monte Vista, Colo., I knew this was the perfect setting for a series—developing easily into the fictional town of Canaan,” Wiseman says. “What an experience to take some of my key characters from the Daughters of the Promise series to Colorado, where they face the challenges of a new location and meet other Amish folks who have migrated to the area— somewhere much different than what they were used to in Lancaster County.”
The groundbreaking Land of Canaan series debuts in October with Seek Me with All Your Heart (Thomas Nelson).
