A Home for Hannah (Amish of Pontotoc #1) by Amy Lillard

35353703A Home for Hannah (Amish of Pontotoc #1)

My Thoughts:
A Home for Hannah is about a young Amish girl who leaves her community to see what the English world is all about. Not only did she leave for curiosity, but she left for love. Fifteen years later, is she able to return back to a community she left? 
Pick up a copy of this book! You will love it! I could not put it down. There was constant tension for Hannah between the English world and the Amish world. She was feeling this pull and as the reader, I was feeling the pull for her too! This book is full of emotions and I was surprised with how quickly the characters picked up. A Home for Hannah has everything you're looking for in a great novel. Romance, faith and fantastic characters! I look forward to reading the second book in this new series. 

About the Author:
Amy Lillard
I'm a wife, mother, and bona fide Southern belle. Published author, expert corn bread maker, and Squirrel Princess.

I live in Tulsa, though I was born in Mississippi. I moved to the Sooner State when I was seventeen and met my soul mate and best friend not long after. I've retained a little of my Mississippi accent though most people think I'm from Texas. (?) Rob and I have been married for over twenty years and have a son--a mom proclaimed prodigy, of course!

I love homemade tacos, nail polish, and romance novels--not necessarily in that order. I'm a big fan of country music, a staunch proponent of saving the Oxford comma, and I'm shamefully obsessed with all things Harry Potter.

I believe that God is love. I guess that's why I adore romances.

I have always been intrigued with the Amish culture, their gentle ways and slower-paced lifestyle. (And I love, love, love the fact that they stay married for their lifetime.) But until recently I never thought to blend this interest with my penchant for romance. Okay, okay, I'm a bit old-fashioned and even enjoy the gender roles that are present in this culture. I love to cook and take care of my family. Yes, that's me June Cleaver with a laptop.
