“Jenny’s Choice tugged my heartstrings and had me shedding tears of sorrow and joy at different points.”
Why the author wrote this book:
When I first started writing the Apple Creek Dreams Series, I was amazed at the way my characters seemed to spring from the ground, fully developed, letting me see and record all of their strengths and flaws as though I was writing their biographies. First I wrote about Jerusha Springer and her encounter with God in the Great Storm of 1950 that paralyzed Ohio. Then I shared the story of Jenny Springer, Jerusha and Reuben's adopted daughter, and her impassioned search for her own identity, whether or not that would take her outside the Amish community of Apple Creek. For the third book, I fully intended to write the story of Rachel Hershberger, Jenny's daughter.
