Olivia Newport's novels twist through time to discover where faith and passions meet. Her husband and two twenty-something children provide welcome distraction from the people stomping through her head on their way into her books. She chases joy in stunning Colorado at the foot of the Rockies, where day lilies grow as tall as she is.
Favorite Verse: John 1: 14 (NIV) The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
In a struggling Amish settlement on the harsh Colorado plain, Abbie Weaver refuses to concede defeat to hail, drought, and coyotes, even as families begin to give up and return east. The biggest challenge of all is the lack of spiritual shepherd and regular worship. When Abbie discovers the root of a spiritual divide that runs through the settlement, she faces her own decisions about what she believes. She must choose between a quiet love in her cherished church, passion with a man determined to leave the church, or imagining her life with neither.

Series by Olivia Newport
Annie joined the Amish church based on prayerful conviction, not romantic dreams. And yet, she’d hoped to share her new life with Rufus. But he’s obviously in no hurry. Family history clearly shows it’s never been easy living a plain life in the English world. Will the changes and challenges Annie now faces as a young Amish woman test her newfound faith in good ways or bad? And how long will Rufus test her patience?
Thirty years of small-town secrets—now the key to the mystery is gone. Quinn is the one who’s there for everybody in Hidden Falls. The beloved teacher. The humble encourager. The pillar of the community. The man who never leaves town. Ever. And just like that he disappears? Soon it seems that thirty years of small-town secrets build to a mystery that no one can solve alone. As friends and loved ones try to track Quinn down, they realize their lives are intertwined with him more than they’d imagined. Even in his absence, he leaves them with lessons to learn—about life and love, about significance and sacrifice. Will they find him alive to thank him?
