Series: Amish Homestead, Book 1
Author: Amy Clipston
Publisher:  Zondervan
Audio Release Date:  November 14, 2017

Kayla Dienner has suffered her fair share of heartache, which is why she vows to protect her heart at all costs . . . until she meets Jamie Riehl.

Along with his volunteer work at the local fire department, running his Amish farm keeps Jamie Riehl busy. He barely has time to eat at the family table, never mind find someone to date. But when he meets Kayla Dienner, he is smitten.

Kayla tries hard to deny her attraction to Jamie. After all, she’s spent the last year discouraging her younger brother, Nathan, from becoming a firefighter. The death of their older brother in a fire a year ago is fresh in her mind—she can’t bear the idea of putting her heart on the line every time the sirens blare.

Then tragedy strikes, and Jamie wants to extinguish any flame between him and Kayla. Can Kayla set aside her own fears to save the love she was determined to deny?

The first book in the Amish Homestead series, A Place at Our Table invites us to a quiet community in Lancaster County where love burns brightly no matter the cost.

Running Through The Storms Welcomes Amy Clipston, Best Selling, Amish Fiction writer! 

Today we are going to be discussing her latest book "A Place at Our Table", which releases November 14, 2017 and I know it is going to be another best seller. This is the first book in her new series an Amish Homestead. Let's get started with some interview questions for Amy.. 

Welcome Amy and take it away!

First, let me say, the cover of your new book is absolutely gorgeous and inviting, it makes me want to sit down adn eat with the main character. 

Can you tell us about your family's favorite dinner? 

One of my family's favorite meals is a meal my mother make. We love her sauerbraten, which is something that I always request on my birthday. Our family also enjoys having breakfast for dinner. Often you can find eggs, pancakes or french toast at our dinner table. 

While, I've never had Sauerbraten and I'd love to have your mom come over and make it because it sounds delicious, I am wondering what Joe, your husband  would say is your best cooking attempts or your worst? 

Joe would tell you that my parmesan chicken is one of the bests! One of my worsts attempts, well, he says I once tried to make a roast when we were living in our fist house, and it turned out as a disaster.  I don't remember this, but he insists we laughed about it. 

Would your rather cook or bake?

Honestly, with my crazy schedule, I don't have time for either. I suppose I'd rather cook since it doesn't take as much time. 

Since your are very busy and your career and writing schedule is so demanding, who does the cooking when you are on a deadline? What do you typically have?

Since I work full-time and write several books per year, my mom keeps our house running.  My mother usually does the cooking, but occasionally I make something.

When you have the opportunity to cook something, would you rather follow a recipe to make dinner or make your own recipe?
As I mentioned before, my schedule is crazy, I'd rather follow a recipe. I'm not very courageous or experienced when it comes to cooking. 

Amy I appreciate you joining us today and letting us get to know more about the upcoming release of your new book!
