When Henry Edison turns up in Lancaster County to survey farm women about their domestic contributions during the 1930s, the last thing Amish housewife Gloria Grabill has time for is the government agent s unending questions. Gloria s hands are already full with a farm to run alongside her husband, a houseful of children, and an English neighbor, Minerva Swain, who has been trying Gloria s patience for forty years. Gloria s oldest daughter, Polly, wants nothing more than the traditional path of an Amish farmer s wife, but everything she does seems to push Thomas Coblentz further away. While the Great Depression shadows the country in gloom, can Amish and English neighbors in Lancaster County grasp the goodness that will sustain hope?

Olivia Newport's novels twist through time to find where faith and passions meet. She chases joy in Colorado, where daylilies grow as tall as she is. Her husband and two twenty-something children provide welcome distraction from the people stomping through her head on their way into her books.
Hope In The Land is a very good romance. The book gives us a very different look at the the great depression among the Amish. The book is full of romance and real good drama that we have grown to love in our Amish reads. The characters are very well developed and lovable. Newport is really good at what she does and this one will not disappoint. if you are a fan of historical fiction and Amish fiction you will enjoy this one.
