Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
For fans of Cindy Woodsmall and Beverly Lewis, Rosalind Lauer's Seasons of Lancaster novel "A Simple Autumn" is a wonderful Amish story about two brothers navigating through the troubled waters of love.
A LOVE THAT REMAINS HIDDEN,
A FORK IN A THORNY ROAD
Jonah King has no desire to leave his close-knit community. All his hopes and dreams lie in Lancaster County, and many of them revolve around his longtime love for Annie Stoltzfus. For years he's been trying to get her to see what burns inside his heart, yet he remains all but invisible to her. Annie's beautiful eyes reflect only her affection for Jonah's older brother--and her sadness when he chooses another. Jonah knows that he must speak up, but when he's around Annie his calm, capable demeanor flees, leaving him tongue-twisted and awkward.
Gabe King has been courting schoolteacher Emma Lapp for months, but she insists on keeping their relationship secret. Emma embraces her duty to set a good example for her pupils, but Gabe is in his rumspringa and still wild at heart, riding motorbikes and unwilling to cut his ties to the outside world. Much to Emma's deep sorrow, it appears that she and Gabe are choosing different paths.
As swirling leaves of orange and gold dance across the countryside, two brothers must find the courage and faith to reconcile their heritage and their hearts.
A beautiful story that explores the clarity of true love, "A Simple Autumn" is a bounty for heart and soul.

Review by Library Journal (2012-11-15)

Adam King has chosen Remy McCallister as his bride. That decision has put him at odds with the church, because Remy is not Amish, even though she has chosen to learn their ways and become baptized. Annie Stolzfus is having the hardest time of all, because she has always dreamed of marrying Adam. Adam's brother Jonah loves Annie, but she tries to set him up with her sister. Meanwhile, Gabe King is still on his rum spring a, enjoying the world that he'll have to turn away from once he's baptized. Gabe loves schoolteacher Emma Lapp, but she's afraid that his wild ways will ruin her reputation so she forces him to keep their love secret.

Verdict: Filled with romantic angst, Lauer's latest series entry (after A Simple Spring and A Simple Winter) will satisfy both Amish fiction and romance fans. It should appeal to fans of Karen Kingsbury.
