Publisher's Description

Although Sadie King is blessed with the voice of an angel, she never thought that following the song in her heart would take her far beyond the strict boundaries of her Amish faith and away from the only home she’s ever known. But during her rumspringa, one road leads to another, and suddenly she’s secretly performing with a band. Now she faces an impossible choice between the music in her heart and the traditions branded upon her soul.
Mike Trueherz is a dedicated young paramedic who finds a kindred spirit in Sadie. Torn between family duty and his desire to pursue a life beyond his father’s rural medical practice, he is inspired by Sadie’s honesty and courage.
While spring unfurls rich colors and bounty through the countryside of Lancaster County, Sadie and Mike must reconcile their families’ expectations with their own callings. Ultimately, their faith in each other and the God that has brought them together will give them the strength and the peace to take a chance—and to make the biggest decision of their lives.
A coming-of-age story reflecting the deepest messages of love, A Simple Spring is music for the heart.

Publisher's Weekly

Lauer follows A Simple Winter with a beautiful tearjerker. Sadie King sings to keep her siblings’ spirits up after the tragic deaths of their parents. In the midst of her rumspringa, the time when Amish youth are allowed to explore the outside world, Sadie struggles between her faith and her growing conviction that God meant for her to do something with her gift. As Amish, she wouldn’t be allowed to perform in public, even in a church, but she can’t bear the idea of leaving her family and friends. When she meets Mike, the local Englisher doctor’s son, she realizes music is not the only thing pulling her away from Lancaster. Sadie’s path to self-discovery is poignant and tender, even sad. It’s clear which heart-wrenching decision Sadie will make, but it’s hard not to hope for that fairy tale “happily ever after.” Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (Apr.)2012 Reed Business Information
