Orphaned…But Never Abandoned by God

Sarah Yoder belongs to a Plain community in Oklahoma, but her days are far from simple. Life suddenly gets complicated when a series of tragic events unfold, leaving her in charge of the household.  
Alone with her younger siblings, Sarah is exhausted but finally at peace. Then she nearly runs over a small Hispanic boy with her buggy…and somehow finds herself sheltering two more orphans.

Paul Byler moved to Cody’s Creek to help his brother in a time of need. But now that Joseph has recovered from his heart attack, Paul’s ready for a quiet place of his own. The only problem? His new property lands him next door to the orphaned Yoder family—and a calling from God he can’t seem to ignore.

A story of extraordinary grace and love in the face of desperate need, Sarah’s Orphans is the third standalone novel in the Plain and Simple Miracles collection by Vannetta Chapman.

A Word from the Author

"I'm so happy to share this final book in the Plain & Simple Miracles series. Inspired by James 1:27, I couldn't help wondering how that commandment to 'look after orphans and widows in their distress' applies to the church today. Do we still have orphans among us? Is it still up to us to take care of them? And then my research turned up cases where the Amish have adopted those in need, whether or not they were previously a part of the Amish faith. The result is, I hope, inspiring fiction based on real life events. May you be blessed and more aware of the orphans around you."
Vannetta Chapman, author of Sarah's Orphans

Vannetta Chapman creates unique Amish fiction, not the ordinary Amish romance. She puts her heart and faith into her writing, with grace and compassion. Topics in this book are varied, evoking numerous emotions, heartache, despair, hope, and the beauty of compassion from the Amish community. Social and personal issues are paramount in this compelling novel.

I loved this novel as it moved seamlessly through very difficult circumstances to redemption by the grace of God. Words can’t quite convey what I’m feeling about this book. I’m still absorbing the issues demonstrated in this very special Amish novel. I highly recommend Sarah’s Orphans!
