From the pen of bestselling Amish fiction author Jerry Eicher (half a million books sold) comes a charming new series set in Snyder County, Pennsylvania. 

Debbie Watson is a young Englisha girl who has grown up admiring her Amish friends, the Beiler sisters.  As she prepares to graduate from college, Debbie considers making the life-changing decision to convert to the Amish faith and lifestyle. 

Soon Debbie’s presence in the community attracts the attention of two suitors: Alvin Knepp, the youngest son of a poor Amish farmer, to whom Debbie is very much attracted; and Paul Wagler, the more successful and sought-after man, whose constant attention to Debbie reminds her of her old Englisha boyfriend—whom she’d rather forget. 

Jerry Eicher’s many fans and readers of Amish fiction will love this heartwarming new series from a master storyteller.

"Holding a Tender Heart is of course a love story, but what was so impressive (and frankly, a welcome relief) was that there were many unexpected turns in the book. This book had more substance than just boy meets girl, they fall in love, and everyone lives happily ever after. I definitely enjoyed this book, and look forward to many months of happy reading with Jerry Eicher's books at my side."
