Katie's Choice By Amy Lillard GIVEAWAY!

Katie Rose Fisher loved Samuel Beachy with an intensity that shook their Amish district. No one doubted they would one day marry, until Samuel turned his back on the church and joined the world of the English.

Alone now in Clover Ridge, Katie Rose dedicates her life to God and the school children she teaches each day. Although she secretly longs for more, Katie knows God’s hand is at work, and she is happy.
News correspondent Zane Carson never even knew Oklahoma had an Amish community until he got the chance to live among them and learn about their day-to-day activities. Their simple way of life is intriguing, but not half as much as the young teacher.
Katie Rose is flattered over the attention she receives from Zane, but she has resolved to never marry. Even if she were to entertain the idea, it surely couldn’t be with an outsider like Zane.
Never one prone to the restraints of organized religion, Zane finds a comfort in the rituals and blessings in the day to day righteous living of this small Amish community. He finds himself, God, and love with Katie Rose.
But as Zane draws closer to Katie Rose, Samuel comes back to repent his ways and return to his place at her side. Can Zane convince Katie Rose that he is committed to adapting to her way of life, or will Samuel win her affec- tions back for himself once again?

Amy Lillard is an award-winning writer who loves reading romance novels from contemporary to Amish. These two genres met in her first book, 2012's Saving Gideon. Born and bred in Mississippi, she now lives with her husband and son in Oklahoma.

Well folks Amy has done it again, wrote one of the best Amish books you will read this year.
I really liked Saving Gideon a lot and I did not think that Amy could write a better story but boy was I wrong. I LOVED Katie's Choice and I only put it down one time to check facebook.  Hey now I can see you all laughing at that. Stop it!
I love the folks in Clover Ridge. I can't get enough of them.
Of course this is a 5 star book who in their right mind can read one of Amy's books and not say it is a 5 star book, Hello you can't put them down.
I can't wait to see what comes next from Amy!
I was given a copy of this book by the author.
