Introducing A MOTHER FOR LEAH by Rachel L Miller




Will Leah Fisher find love because of a buggy accident?
Don’t miss this Sweet Amish Romance about loss, life and new love!


Enter to WIN a Favorite Reads Prize pack!

This giveaway is open from August 15th – 30th. One winner will be chosen! Click the image below to enter. The winners will be announced August 31st on the author’s BLOG!

And keep reading below for more about this fantastic book.






1. The prologue for A Mother for Leah did not exist in the rough draft. It was added later—then removed at the request of an interested agent, then added back in at the request of the agent Rachel signed with.

2. Initially, Leah was a very unlikeable character. Fortunately, with edits (and the addition of a secondary romance), Leah became the charming, sweet girl we see in the final story.

3. The name of Leah’s father’s love interest changed four times before the author settled on Naomi.

4. A Mother for Leah is book 1 in a series. At the moment, there are three books proposed and contracted.

5. There is a companion series proposed, though it has not been finalized at this time.

6. A Mother for Leah takes place in upstate New York and, though Windy Gap is a fictional community that the author created, there are “real” Amish settlements in the area that inspired this novel and several others.

7. Leah is mentioned briefly in Naomi Miller‘s Lemon Tart Mystery – book 3 of her Amish Sweet Shop Mystery series. And yes, before you ask, a crossover has been discussed with the authors

8. The shop in Windy Gap named Sew Sweet is not a misspelling. It is an intentional play on words because the neighboring shops “Sew Sweet” and “SewNice” are owned by quirky sisters who thought it was a clever marketing ploy that customers would enjoy.

9. A Mother for Leah was written during Rachel’s very first NaNoWriMo session. (Yes, she won)

10. Rachel was introduced to Amish fiction (as a reader) and to the idea of writing Amish fiction—by her mother


Today I am reviewing A Mother for Leah by Rachel L Miller. 

I was hooked from the first page…

I could easily picture a little girl, standing on her porch, then rushing through the pouring rain to the waiting buggy… I’ve lost both parents and both sisters and I’m the last family member, so I’m sure you’ll understand when I cried buckets at the funeral. The rain falling on the big, black umbrella seemed totally appropriate.

Ten years pass and Samuel Fisher has remained single, albeit a difficult thing to do in his Amish community. Even after ten years, Leah is still missing her mother, while caring for her father and brothers. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll let you read it and discover what happens when Leah’s father decides it’s time to search for a wife.

Rachel L Miller writes with great depth and emotion. Her characters are well-developed and entertaining, and the story will leave you with feelings of love, hope and joy. If you enjoy reading Amish romance stories, you’ll LOVE reading A Mother For Leah.

A Mother For Leah is the first book in the Windy Gap Wishes series… I’m thrilled to help promote this awesome book — and I can’t wait to read the rest of the series!


ABOUT A Mother for Leah:

Will Leah Fisher find love because of a buggy accident?

Could love soften her heart so that she is able to see her answered prayers in Naomi Yoder or will she drive a wedge between her father and the only woman he has shown interest in since Elisabeth Fisher’s death?

Leah Fisher lost her mother ten years ago. She is rapidly approaching womanhood and the lack is becoming more difficult every day.

Will she be able to recognize love when it’s right in front of her?

Could love be the key to Leah opening her heart, making room for the woman her father intends to marry… or will she stubbornly cling to the memory of her own mother?

Will Leah be able to let go of her own ideas and realize that God truly does know best for her or will she allow love to slip through her fingers, destroying Samuel Fisher and Naomi Yoder’s happiness at the same time?



Rachel L Miller writes sweet Amish romance with a focus on faith, family and friendship.

She feels very strongly that God has led her to live a simpler lifestyle – thus her deep kinship with the plain people. She enjoys spending time with her family and doing fun, simple things like swimming, making sun tea, sitting outside watching the sunrise or listening to rain fall on the tin roof.

Rachel enjoys writing Amish fiction and hopes that the purity of her stories will allow God’s message to shine through more clearly. She also writes Contemporary Inspirational Romance – and with all of her stories she focuses on presenting romance the way God intended it to be.

They were blessed with five daughters and one son. Two daughters were born with Down syndrome and live at home. Their other children live close by. Diane has four adorable grandchildren.

Diane gives thanks daily to God for all her blessings.

Guest Post from Diane Craver

Back in 2012, when I told our adult children I had written my first Amish book, they looked surprised. In the past I had written contemporary Christian romance, but I had never mentioned anything about researching the Amish faith for my future books. My great-grandfather was a Mennonite minister, but I never knew him. My mother shared stories about his faith and his strictness in raising children. With many similarities between my great-grandfather’s faith and the Amish beliefs, I was drawn to learn more about the Plain life.

Another influence came from my father. While growing up in Findlay, Ohio, my father respected and enjoyed talking with the Amish from Kenton, Ohio. As a farmer, he used both work horses (something he had in common with his Amish acquaintances) and a tractor. In my book, A PLAIN WIDOW, my character, Jonathan Mast, is from Kenton. Unfortunately, my children never knew my father, but they learned how precious he was to me from reading my book, A GIFT FOREVER.

Now several books later, I am still writing Amish fiction. I feel blessed that God directed me on this writing path. A wonderful aspect of writing in this genre is finding Amish recipes to prepare in my kitchen. One of my favorite recipes is also my character Molly’s specialty in my new release. This Amish recipe is an easy bread to make and takes around twenty minutes to prepare.

Delicious Amish Cinnamon Bread

(Makes 2 loaves)


1 cup butter, softened

2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 cups buttermilk or 2 cups milk plus 2 tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice

4 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking soda

Cinnamon/sugar mixture:

2/3 cup sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

Cream together butter, 2 cups of sugar, and eggs. Add milk, flour, and baking soda. Put 1/2 of batter (or a little less) into greased loaf pans. (Basically pour 1/4 of the total batter into each pan.)

Mix in separate bowl the 2/3 cup of sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle 3/4 of cinnamon mixture on top of the 1/2 batter in each pan. Add remaining batter to pans; sprinkle with last of cinnamon topping. Swirl with a knife. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 min. Or until toothpick tester is clean.

Cool in pan for 20 minutes before removing from pan.

Author Spotlight – Valerie Comer


More Than a Tiara (Christmas in Montana Romance) by Valerie Comer

Marisa Hiller abandoned her modeling career to nurse a broken heart in Montana, far from the photographer who ruined everything. Her family farm is now part of a CSA program teaching gardening and cooking to single moms, but when the coordinator begs her to represent the program in the Miss Snowflake Pageant, Marisa balks.

Jase Mackie has long regretted the hot accusations he’d flung at Marisa over two years before. God has forgiven him but hasn’t answered his prayer to bring Marisa back into his life… until Jase finds himself out West as the official photographer for a beauty pageant, face to face with the woman he’s never forgotten.

Can Jase make amends for past mistakes and offer Marisa not only a tiara, but a partner in her crusade to help needy children and families?

More Than a Tiara originally released in 2014 as the second half of Snowflake Tiara, behind The Debutante Queen, Angela Breidenbach’s short novel, about Marisa’s 3x great-grandmother, Calista, set in 1889 Helena, Montana. It was also available in the Home for Christmas multi-author box set in 2015.

Other Than a Halo (Christmas in Montana Romance) by Valerie Comer

Even though she’s a new woman in Christ, single mom Bren Haddock was no angel as a teen. Now managing the Hiller Farm for a CSA, life is good until a friend offers to enter her daughter into the Little Miss Snowflake Pageant. Old insecurities flare when she meets the intriguing head of marketing the pageant.

Rob Santoro isn’t so sure about handling the pageant portfolio until he meets Bren. Soon he’s fallen for her and her two kids. When a Thanksgiving adventure goes awry, he’s left wondering how to love a woman who refuses to be loved.

What will it take for Bren to retire her tarnished halo and move into the future God has for her?



COMING SOON in the Christmas in Montana Romance series:

Better Than a Crown

Better Than a Crown is expected to release in the fall of 2017, as the third book in the Christmas in Montana Romance series (following More Than a Tiara and Other than a Halo).


Sow in Love (Garden Grown Romance) by Valerie Comer

Real estate consultant Joanna Kraus’s ideas for fulfilling a living trust are shot down by the elderly man’s grandson. In fact, it seems like sending her back to the drawing board is his primary joy. How can a vintage 1960s house and two greenhouses generate income for the church in receipt of the trust?

The more Grady Akers gets to know Joanna, the more he finds himself hoping it takes a long time to find a solution, but his charm may be no match for the armor wrapped around Joanna’s heart. Will the perfect solution for the property be perfect to grow a love that’s just been sown?




Sprouts of Love (Garden Grown Romance) by Valerie Comer

Single mom Evelyn Felton takes on another part-time job managing a greenhouse and garden project for Grace Fellowship. Formerly homeless, she’s thrilled to offer truckloads of fresh produce to the Arcadia Valley food bank.

If only Ben Kujak weren’t running Corinna’s Cupboard singlehandedly, he’d be delighted to be on the receiving end. But Evelyn and her dynamo daughter, Maisie, won’t take no for an answer, even if it means restructuring Ben’s charity.

Soon Ben finds himself wishing they’d transform his personal life, too, but can true love sprout when their pasts collide with the present?



COMING SOON in the Garden Grown series:

Rooted in Love 

Childcare is a problem for single dad Cameron Kraus, so he’s delighted when Grace Fellowship starts an after-school program at a repurposed greenhouse. If only his twins didn’t come home covered in dirt Every Single Day.

Alaina Silva is grateful for her new job working with kids in her old hometown of Arcadia Valley, but she knows nothing of the gardening that’s supposed to be a major part of the curriculum.

When two little boys who think they know everything pit a dad and a teacher who know little against each other, it’s only a challenge for love to take root.


Harvest of Love 

Releasing May 2018!

Naomi Miller . . . Author Spotlight


Thank you for joining me for this special Author Spotlight!

First, a bit about Naomi…


This is what Naomi feels like when her deadline approaches… 

As a new author, Naomi keeps not one, but two physical calendars going at all times — current year and following year, plus calendar sheets for the next five years.

If you plan to make a career of writing, you must plan ahead. I had no idea of the timeframes involved, with first drafts, revisions, conferences, events, book signings, blog tours, cover reveals, promoting, … the list goes on and on.

But I’m happier now than I’ve ever been! I love writing! I love interacting with my readers! And yes, I love opening a box and pulling out copies of my book!

Naomi is the author of two Amish books, with a rough draft of the third book just completed. Her latest release, Christmas Cookie Mystery, is the second novel in the Amish Sweet Shop Mystery series.

Naomi is currently working on a collaboration with speculative/dystopian fiction author JC Morrows, merging their genres in a new series. For updates, be sure to sign up for Naomi’s newsletter.

A Tennessee native, Naomi is a graduate of Bellevue University in Nebraska, completing a bachelor’s degree in Networking, then a master’s degree in Security Management. She has been an employee of the State of Tennessee for almost fifteen years, and plans to retire in the next few years, to write full-time and enjoy a more flexible schedule. She is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and hopes to become more involved in all ACFW has to offer in the near future.

Naomi also enjoys traveling with her family, singing inspirational/gospel music, taking a daily walk, and witnessing to others of the amazing grace of Jesus Christ. In her spare time, she likes to relax, while crocheting or knitting — and always has time to read new releases from her favorite authors.

Readers can learn more about Naomi at or find her on Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, Pinterest and Goodreads.

And here is my interview:

Have you always wanted to write? Do you use an outline for your stories?

Yes! I’ve always wanted to write, but I didn’t think it was a career I could actually choose to do. I actually began a contemporary novel in 1990, but eventually it ended up in a drawer. I still have it . . . someday I may finish it, but for now, I’m compelled to write Amish fiction.

I don’t use an outline. I write down 5-6 short sentences – each sentence representing an idea of a chapter. Sometimes the chapter follows the idea; sometimes it goes a completely different direction. I’ve learned to let my story guide me. Many times I have no idea how it’s even going to end!

How does it feel being a published author? Have you encountered any surprises along the way to being published?

I love it! Being published feels really great! I love watching a story develop on the page, from beginning to end. Of course, it’s not all fun, but overall it’s the most fulfilling thing I’ve done. And it’s such a blessing to see how my book impacts the lives of others.

Do you have a folder or a file where you keep future ideas for stories or do you just come up with ideas after a suggestion from your editor, agent, or friends?

I don’t keep a physical file or folder, but I have folders on my laptop, where I keep a few word documents with story ideas. Most of the time, I don’t begin a new book, until I’ve prayed about it for awhile. My usual habit is to wake early and spend time with God, asking Him what I should write. And when the ideas come, I write down a few sentences – one for each chapter; and that’s where I start.

Have you attended any writer retreats, conferences, and the like? Do you think they are necessary for your writing?

YES! I was advised by several author friends to make time for retreats, workshops and conferences . . . not only have the workshops and classes been worth every minute spent, but the friendships I’ve made have been invaluable!

How often do you travel? Where do you go? Who do you travel with? What is your favorite vacation spot?

I want to travel, but until I retire, I’m limited to a few workshops and book events each year! My favorite vacation spot is Myrtle Beach, which also happens to be the favorite vacation spot of my grandchildren. I love listening to the sound of the ocean and watching my family playing in the waves.

What are you working on now? Is there another genre you are interested in writing?

I’m currently working on books 3 and 4 in my Amish Sweet Shop Mystery series. Book two was just released this month, so I have a few weeks before book three is due to my publisher for editing while book four is being written.


And now for a few favorites:

Favorite color – Purple (although I love all colors)

Favorite food/drink – That’s a tough question. I love cheeseburgers, but my favorite snacks are peaches, blueberries, and watermelon. My favorite drink is sweet tea (hey, I’m from the south).

Favorite time of year – I love fall, winter and spring. I love watching it snow, but I’m not a fan of the cold weather anymore.

Favorite hobbies – Writing, reading, crocheting/knitting, and working puzzles (sudoku, solitaire, freecell).

Favorite holiday – Christmas. I love the Christmas songs, the decorations and the wonderful idea of giving gifts to those you love.

Favorite dessert – Sweet Potato Pie. My daughter makes an awesome homemade sweet potato pie! She makes one for Thanksgiving and one for Christmas.

Disappointment–it’s what’s for dinner!

Disappointment–it’s what’s for dinner!

Disappointment is something we would all like to banish from our lives. However, the older I get and the more I experience disappointment, the more I see how it shapes and molds me into a more thoughtful person. Disappointment helps us grow up, no matter how old we are. I know that sounds ridiculously self-righteous,… Read More

Medicine & Prayer Make Powerful Partners

The other night my husband and I were watching a TV program in which a fictional medical examiner said, “I’m a doctor, I don’t believe (in miracles, in prayer, in God).” Irritated, I turned to Tim and remarked that one did not preclude the others. He rolled his eyes and said, “It’s a TV show.”… Read More

On buggies and choosing to slow down

It seems as if I’m always in a hurry. Even when I’m not. I retired in February so I no longer throw myself out of bed at five-thirty a.m. to rush downtown to an office where I finagled an hour of writing before beginning my day job. I rushed home to fix supper, exercise, shower,… Read More

Jean C. Gordon . . . Author Spotlight


Thank you for joining me for this Author Spotlight!

First, a bit about Jean…


Jean C. Gordon’s writing is a natural extension of her love of reading. From that day in first grade when she realized t-h-e was the word “the,” she’s been reading everything she can put her hands on. A professional financial planner, Jean is as at home writing retirement- and investment-planning advice as she is writing romance novels, but finds novels a lot more fun.

She and her college-sweetheart husband tried the city life in Los Angeles, but quickly returned home to their native Upstate New York. They share a 170-year-old farmhouse just south of Albany, NY, with their daughter and son-in-law, two grandchildren, and a menagerie of pets. Their son lives nearby. While Jean creates stories, her family grows organic fruits and vegetables and tends the livestock de jour.

Although her writing and family don’t leave her a lot of spare time, Jean likes to give back when she can. She and her husband team-taught a seventh-and-eighth-grade Sunday school class for several years and currently serve on her church’s Evangelism Committee. She also shares her love of books with others by volunteering at the church’s Book Nook.

You can keep in touch with her at or find her on Facebook, Twitter, Amazon, and Goodreads.


An interview with Jean C. Gordon . . . today on Donna’s BookShelf – Tweet this!


And here is my interview with Jean:

  1. You have written several great series for Love Inspired . . . what inspired you to branch out with the Upstate NY series?

Actually, I wrote my Upstate books before I started writing for Love Inspired. Avalon Books originally published them in hardcover for libraries. Amazon Montlake later bought Avalon, and I received the rights back on my first three Avalon books, which I refreshed and updated and published under the Upstate NY imprint. Montlake still has the rights to and has republished my last two Avalon books, Mara’s Move and Candy Kisses. I like writing sweet romance as well as inspirational romance, so I’ll be launching a new sweet series (Team Macachek) in the fall to complement my Love Inspired books.


  1. Have you ever written under a pen name? Why or why not?

No, I haven’t. Jean C. Gordon is such a nice easy name to remember. FYI, the “C” is for Chelikowsky.


  1. I heard that you plan to attend a readers conference in Nashville this August . . . will you also be attending the ACFW conference during the same week?

Yes, I will be at the conference as well. I’m looking forward to both of them and to visiting Nashville for the first time. I’m bringing my husband along and staying a few extra days to sightsee. I hope to see at least some of you while I’m there.


  1. You live in an historic farmhouse in New York State. Can you tell us more about your choice to live with your daughter’s family? (I live with my daughter’s family, too)

The summer before our son started high school, our daughter and son-in-law were house hunting and not finding what they wanted—something with acreage to do some farming—in their price range. The semi-rural area where we were living at the time was quickly becoming suburban, and the high school had grown to a size that seemed large to my husband and me. We wanted our son to attend a smaller school. After a summer-long search, we finally found our house. We had a few bumps at first, such as quickly discovering that we couldn’t share a kitchen. My husband and I added a second kitchen to our side of the house. Once we got over the bumps, things have worked out pretty well, and I love having the multi-generations together. I think it’s good for all of us.


  1. Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?

I have two things. If you want to succeed commercially, treat your writing as a business, not a hobby, and remember where your talents come from.


And now for a few favorites:

Favorite person – my husband, Mark

Favorite coffee –  anything mocha 

Favorite perfume – Lily of the Valley

Favorite hobbies (other than writing) – reading and playing Scrabble online with a few friends

Favorite book – it’s a toss-up between Francine Rivers’ Redeeming Grace, and Mary Jo Putney’s The Rake and the Reformer (original versions of each)

Favorite music – most recently, Country. It reminds me of the rock ballads of the 1970s. (Yes, I’m dating myself)

Thank you, Jean!

And THANK YOU, readers, for joining me for this AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT!
