The Amish Turns of Time Trilogy: Three Romances Weather Cultural Shifts in Amish History
Olivia Newport’s acclaimed Amish historicals now under one cover! Three riveting novels set in the 1910s take readers through pivotal historical events in the lives of Amish from three key communities Wonderful Lonesome In a struggling Amish settlement on the harsh Colorado plain, Abbie Weaver refuses to concede defeat to hail, drought, and coyotes.

Meek and Mild Clara and Andrew belong to a strict Old Order Amish community in Pennsylvania, but their consciences are leading them to make progressive choices—Clara by teaching Bible stories to children and Andrew by owning a car. What choice will their friends and family have but to shun them? Brightest and Best The collapse of a one-room schoolhouse leads to state-mandated changes in the education of Ohio’s Amish children.
