WeWriWa - Amish Romance

Good morning! Well, sorry I missed last Sunday -- it has been an extremely busy couple of weeks. We got a house, moved our family from the tornado-heavy state of Oklahoma to our hometown in Texas. We have been busy unpacking, reorganizing, and of course, having fun! Last weekend though, the kids and I drove across three states to rehome our kittens with my editor and friend, who drove across two states to meet us halfway! We had a ball in New Mexico and the visit was over much too soon. Not to mention the stomach virus rearing its ugly head at the most inopportune time. But I digress, onto my first Amish historical romance, Rebekah's Quilt-- coming soon from 5 Prince Publishing.


In this scene, our Amish couple, Joseph and Rebekah, are talking in Rebekah's barn when a strange English visitor appears.
 
 

 
 
         With a jingle, the stranger stepped into the patch of light framed by the barn’s door. The sun glinted off the two tinkling silver stars that stuck off the backs of the stranger's boots. “I’m Peter O’Leary."
 
          Hallo,” said Rebekah and Joseph in unison. 
            She let her eyes roam over the stranger, who couldn't be much older than Joseph or her, taking no qualms at subtlety. Tufts of straw-colored hair stuck out from under Peter's black hat, which was cocked over one eye in a decent attempt at covering a vertical scar that ran through his eyebrow.  His stormy green eyes stared back at her from his stubbly face, revealing no emotion. He neither smiled nor frowned. 
I hope you enjoyed this excerpt of Rebekah's Quilt! To get back to WeWriWaa, click here. To check out some more work by me, check out my website!
