Mary Ellis: The Marrying Kind
(September 17, 2011)
In book two of the Wayne County series from best-selling author Mary Ellis, A Marriage for Meghan (Harvest House), Meghan Yost is eager to prove herself as a teacher. But when handsome FBI agent Thomas Mast investigates recent crimes against their Amish community, Meghan questions everything about love, faith, and the true cause of the disruptions.
The author gets her Amish research locally: She grew up close to the eastern Ohio Amish community of Geauga County, where her parents often took her to farmers’ markets and woodworking fairs. “My husband and I now live within the largest population of Amish in the country—a four-county area in central Ohio,” she says. “We love to take weekend getaways to purchase farm produce and other goodies, stay with Amish families in bed-and-breakfasts, attend country auctions and enjoy the simpler way of life.”
