Award winning author Suzanne Woods Fisher writes fiction and non-fiction books about faith-based communities. Suzanne was a finalist twice for the Carol Awards and a finalist for the Christy Awards. Amish Peace and Amish Proverbs were both finalists for the ECPA Book of the Year (2010, 2011). Her interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, who was raised Plain in Pennsylvania. Suzanne raises puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind, and says, "You just can’t take life too seriously when a puppy is tearing through your house with someone’s underwear in its mouth."
Favorite Verse: Matthew 1:23, (KJV) Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
When Anna Konig first meets Bairn, the Scottish ship carpenter of the Charming Nancy, their encounter is anything but pleasant. Anna is on the ship only to ensure the safe arrival of her loved ones to the New World. Hardened by years of living at sea, Bairn resents toting these somber people--dubbed "Peculiars" by deckhands--across the ocean. As delays, storms, illness, and diminishing provisions afflict crew and passengers alike, Bairn finds himself drawn to Anna's serene nature. For her part, Anna can't seem to stay away from the aloof ship's carpenter, despite warnings. When an act of sacrifice leaves Anna in a perilous situation, Bairn discovers he may not have left his faith as firmly in the past as he thought. But has the revelation come too late?
