About the Book


Book title: Springs of Love

Author: Laura V. Hilton, Rachel J. Good, Thomas Nye

Release date: June 15, 2017

Genre: Amish

The Kissing Bridge 

Escaping the past isn’t as easy as it should be…

Anna thought her bad decisions would fade into nothing after she vanished for a few months. Her motives would be clear, her mistakes erased, and she’d be able to rewrite her future the way she wanted. It didn’t work out the way she’d planned. Instead, she discovered her actions have consequences and they had to be paid.

Reuben loved Anna for as long as he could remember, but before he could get serious about courting her, his brother, Mark, won her away. But now she’s back and she beginning to pay the steep price for her mistakes. Reuben tries to help her as much as he can, and the decisions he makes will cost them both everything.

Sold on Love

When Lavina Fisher takes over the household while Mamm’s away, things go from bad to worse. And her younger brother, Stephen, is mostly to blame. Then an accident forces Lavina to face her fears—and her ex-boyfriend. Can she swallow her pride and accept Aaron’s help with the latest disaster?

Cowboys and Amish Girls

Rodeo cowboy, Truman Gunderson, had never met an Amish girl. Amish sisters, Faith, Hope, and Charity had yet to lay eyes on a real, live cowboy. That is until Truman’s galloping horse crosses paths with Charity’s runaway buggy. Truman is not the type to shy away from any challenge, but after he learns something about Faith, Hope, and especially Charity, he realizes that he has met his match.

The story behind The Kissing Bridge
The Snow Globe was released in November 2014 and almost immediately readers fell in love with Reuben and Anna, the grandparents in the story.  They were secondary characters, but readers asked me to write their story – I put it on the back-burner, told God if He opens the doors I would, and didn’t really think of it again until I was asked to write a novella for this collection.  I talked to the publisher of my Amish novels, they gave me permission, and a very close friend and I went back and reread The Snow Globe to remember all the important details about Reuben and Anna in that book.  Then, with much prayer for God’s leading, I dived in.  The Kissing Bridge is the result, and it was so much fun to write!  If you are new to my writing, and want to know what happened to the main characters of The Kissing Bridge years down the road, then read The Snow Globe.  If you have read The Snow Globe and were one of the many who asked for Reuben and Anna’s story, then read The Kissing Bridge. 
The setting is actually a real covered bridge that I visited long years ago with my parents when we went on a camping trip and visited all the covered bridges and mills in driving distance of our camp-spot.  That was before I cared that my family had come from the Amish and I wondered at all these people dressed as they were and driving horses and buggies!  
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the story!

Sold on Love

By Rachel J. Good

Before I began writing this story, I attended mud sales in the Lancaster area. The mud sale season begins in March and I always try to experience what my characters experience, so I spent hours whipped by frigid winds, my toes freezing in the patches of snow on the ground. Seeing the auctioneers, the goods for sale (buggies, quilts, crafts, furniture, tools, and even candy), tasting the barbequed chicken, watching the runners (small Amish boys who use their wagons to transport people’s packages to the bus stop), riding on the old school bus to and from the sale – all of these made their way into the story.

But I was even more fascinated to find out more about Amish firefighters and EMTs. In many rural areas, Amish men volunteer to help their communities. Because they do not believe in pride or in putting themselves above others in their communities, they don’t go to school beyond eighth grade. That belief in not going on for higher education also extends to obtaining certificates or degrees.

To be an EMT or firefighter, though, requires completion of a rigorous training course. How do the Amish handle this requirement? They participate in all the required training, but they do not get certified. So you can rest assured if Amish EMTs respond to an accident, they’ve had all the proper medical training. Interestingly enough, most are allowed to wear the fire company shirt, although some choose not to do so. Here’s a link to a picture of the Gordonville Fire Company. See if you can tell which members are Amish (clues: look for suspenders and/or bowl haircuts). And, yes, they did have their pictures taken.

Here’s an excerpt from when Aaron and Lavina meet inside the commercial refrigerator at the mud sale:

Before Aaron could move, the door swung open and Lavina entered.

He froze, and she almost barreled into him.

She stopped short, her breath coming in jagged gasps. “A-Aaron? What are you doing here?”

“Umm…” What was he doing here besides staring at her? “I was…” Chicken. That’s what he’d come in here for. “I-I needed some more barbeque to chicken. I mean chicken to barbeque.”

Her soft oh hit him in the gut. He’d always loved that gentle sound she made when he surprised her. Knowing he’d never hear it again left him feeling bereft.

They stood there, their gazes locked on each other, neither of them daring to move or breathe. If he asked, would she tell him why she’d broken up with him?
