Hannah's Choice By Jan Drexler GIVEWAY!



Hannah Yoder loves her quiet life on the banks of the Conestoga Creek. In 1842, this corner of Lancaster County is settled and peaceful--yet problems lurk beneath the placid fa├žade. Hannah's father worries about the spread of liberal ideas from their Mennonite and Brethren neighbors. And Hannah blames herself for a tragedy that struck their home nine years ago. She strives to be the one person who can bind the threads of her family together in spite of her mother's ongoing depression and her sister's rejection of their family. But her world is threatening to unravel.When two young men seek her hand in marriage--one offering the home she craves and the other promising the adventure of following God's call west--Hannah must make a choice. Faithfully perform her duties to her family? Or defy her father and abandon her community?With a tender hand, Jan Drexler teases out the threads of a romance that will captivate readers in this brand-new Amish historical series.

Pick up your copy here...


Jan Drexler brings a unique understanding of Amish traditions and beliefs to her writing. Her ancestors were among the first Amish, Mennonite, and Brethren immigrants to Pennsylvania in the 1700s. Their experiences are the basis for her stories. Jan lives in South Dakota with her husband, their four adult children, two active dogs, and a cat. When she isn't writing, she enjoys hiking the Black Hills and the Badlands. She is the author of the Love Inspired novels The Prodigal Son Returns, A Mother for His Children, and A Home for His Family (September 2015).

This is one Historical book you should read even if you don't like to read Historicals.
Anyone dealing with depression will find a connection with this book. Its a pretty emotional read. But so well written you won't put it down.
I found the characters well rounded. The sister was one tough cookie.
This was the first book that I have read by Drexler, but it won't be my last.
You must read Hannah's story and share it with your friends. You won't be sorry. I can't wait to read book two in Journey to Pleasant Prairie series.
I gave this book 4 stars.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
