Editorial Reviews

Praise for the Novels of Naomi King

"King’s lyrical style shines in a tender tale of how love and forgiveness heal broken hearts and restore a family and a community. With its Missouri setting, King offers us a knowing look into a different Amish settlement. Readers will look forward to more Cedar Creek stories."—Marta Perry, author of the Pleasant Valley series

"Abby Finds Her Calling is a heartwarming story, beautifully told, of forgiveness, redemption, and the healing power of love in its many forms: love between individuals, family love, love within a community, and God’s love. This story touched my heart."—JoAnn Grote, author of "Image of Love" from A Prairie Christmas Collection

"Naomi King writes with a heartwarming honesty that will stay with the reader long after the last page."—Emma Miller, author of the Amish Matchmaker series

"What distinguishes this from many other Amish romances is how it shows that forbearance and forgiveness take a good deal of work, and the Amish, like everybody else, gossip, bicker, and sometimes have less-than-ideal family lives."—Publishers Weekly

"Frustration and sorrow make King’s characters three-dimensional and believable. Readers of Janette Oke and Beverly Lewis will enjoy the latest in King’s Amish series."—Library Journal

"The very talented Naomi King instantly pulls you into the lives and loves in this small Amish community....King has an amazing talent for developing realistic characters that have to grapple with life issues and through faith find workable solutions for themselves and others."—Fresh Fiction

"A superbly written, engaging Amish novel that will tug at your heartstrings....King does a fine job of continuing to create that small-town feel."—The Book Connection

"A talented author who writes from her heart."—RT Book Reviews
