For fans of Cindy Woodsmall and Beverly Lewis, Rosalind Lauer's Seasons of Lancaster novelA Simple Autumnis a wonderful Amish story about two brothers navigating through the troubled waters of love. A LOVE THAT REMAINS HIDDEN, A FORK IN A THORNY ROAD Jonah King has no desire to leave his close-knit community. All his hopes and dreams lie in Lancaster County, and many of them revolve around his longtime love for Annie Stoltzfus. For years he's been trying to get her to see what burns inside his heart, yet he remains all but invisible to her. Annie's beautiful eyes reflect only her affection for Jonah's older brother Gabe-and her sadness when Gabe chooses another. Jonah knows that he must speak up, but when he's around Annie his calm, capable demeanor flees, leaving him tongue-twisted and awkward. Gabe King has been courting schoolteacher Emma Lapp for months, but she insists on keeping their relationship secret.
The endearing third Seasons of Lancaster romance (after A Simple Spring) follows Amish brothers Jonah and Gabe King as they win their ladies while finding their places in their community. Gabe loves Emma Lapp, a schoolteacher, but he's also enjoying his rumspringa. Emma is concerned his wild streak will jeopardize her position and refuses to go public with their relationship. Jonah has been in love with Annie Stoltzfus since they were children, but she is fixated on his brother Adam. Now Adam and Remy (paired up in A Simple Winter) are finally getting married, and Jonah starts helping out at the Stoltzfus farm, hoping to get Annie to notice him. Gabe has to understand that his desire to break the rules is hurting the woman he loves, and Annie has to learn to accept change. Love is challenging and perplexing, but the Kings approach everything with singing and laughter, paving a smooth road to a happy ending for all. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (Nov.)
