Product Description

Amish-raised Ada Rupp knows it's time to make a commitment to the faith and join the church, especially if she wants a future with the handsome Amish widower Will Gundy. But when she has the chance to travel to Switzerland as the caregiver of a young child, she leaps at the opportunity.

Anxious to learn more about her forebears, Ada enlists the help of a young Mennonite scholar named Daniel, but even as she develops feelings for him, she cannot get Will from her mind-or her heart. At a crossroads, Ada must decide what she is willing to give up from the past in order to embrace her future.

But when she has the chance to travel to Switzerland as the caregiver of a young child, she leaps at the opportunity.

Anxious to learn more about her forebears, Ada enlists the help of a young Mennonite scholar named Daniel, but even as she develops feelings for him, she cannot get Will from her mind--or her heart.

Publisher's Weekly

Bestselling author Clark and coauthor Gould team up for the second in the Women of Lancaster County series. The authors present characters in likable and realistic settings and circumstances. Ada Rupp, a formerly sickly Amish-raised wanna-be schoolteacher, falls for Will Gundy, Amish widower. Ada herself is surprised when adventure takes her to Europe, where she prays she can finally meet her birth mother. Unused to travel, Ada is stretched by circumstances when asked to act as Will's daughter's nanny during the trip. She finds herself working overtime to reach beneath the grief-stricken preteen Christy's aloofness. Toss in some comedic happenings involving the travelers and their Mennonite traveling companion, Daniel Hart, who has taken a romantic interest in Ada. Confusion reigns until Ada decides where to build her future and with whom. Clark and Gould succeed in developing a fascinating story while simultaneously instructing readers on the Amish lifestyle, building a strong case for Plain living within a thoroughly modern world setting.

Editorial Reviews

"This is the best yet!  It is full of love, intrigue, and restoration of the family core from the start to the present. I highly recommended this book to every reader."
--Sandy Davis Posten, Redeemed Books & Gifts

"Once again authors Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould have engrossed their readers with a complex story of people past and present, Amish and ‘Englisch,' adopted and biological. The Amish Nanny contains numerous resources to help the reader gain further understanding of the Amish way of life, and will be a fine choice for any book club to undertake."
--Caroline Daniel

"I enjoyed reading The Amish Nanny.  I feel that the author treated the Amish culture with respect.  It allows the reader to see a bit into the life of the Amish.  It was also written in a way to hold your attention as there was a lot of action!"
--Harvey Mast, Delaware Mennonite Historical Society

"As Ada said, ‘I wanted the full knowledge of what was out there, of who I might be.' Perhaps journeying along with her in this novel will help answer these questions in the reader's life. I recommend this story and others by Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould."
--Mary Hake

"I read these books with genuine delight--first for the further revelations of life in the extended Amish family readers were introduced to in the first book of the series, and second for the clever way the main character's story spanned both geography and time. Well done!"
--Elizabeth Cosgriff

"I think you will enjoy meeting Ada as much as you enjoyed meeting Lexie. The writers, Clark and Gould, work seamlessly together with one voice keeping the story line cohesive and interesting."
--Susan Giesbrecht

"One of the many things I liked about this book was the attention given to historical details of the Anabaptists in Switzerland.  I also enjoyed the way the authors showed the complexities involved in trying to live the Plain life in modern day society.
 
"I would recommend this book without reservation."
--Julie Surface Johnson

    I have to tell you I am very stingy with my stars. When I give four, that's really like 5 or 6 on this scale. When I give 5, I guess that would be more like 10. So, I really loved this book. I had a hard time putting it down.

    I loved the setting, the interesting characters, the plot ... you know, pretty much everything.

    This was well written and those who love Amish fiction should not miss it!
