Publisher's Description

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?

Author Bio

Olivia Newport’s novels twist through time to find where faith and passions meet. Her husband and twentysomething 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 daylilies grow as tall as she is.

Editorial Reviews

The characters are amazing, written with both strengths and weaknesses while finding ways to turn things around. Newport brings new and refreshing ideas to life.

Hope in the Land is a relaxing story set in a troubling time, but speaks volumes about the dedication of a people to carry on and the hope that keeps them going. An interesting read.

The cast of characters is large, but each is smartly crafted. Without heavy religious tones, Newport keenly expresses the timeless value of forgiveness, generosity, and compassion.

This story of courage and endurance during a time when hope was as scarce as money will inspire devotees of Amish fiction.

A look into family life during the 1930s, this is intriguing historical fiction with an Amish romance twist that will give readers of genre something new and different to enjoy.

Newport tends to be a little too creative with her descriptions at times, but her characters are quirky and well defined. History buffs will enjoy this inspirational Depression-era novel.
