Patty Stansell grew up in southern Oregon. Her passion for the written word was fueled by the mentoring of Pastor Bob Ortega of Calvary Chapel, Las Cruces, N.M.  With her lifelong love of the Amish and Mennonite cultures brought her to write this series "The Ladies of Lancaster County."

"We long for a slower, simpler world--maybe that is why we love the Amish Books! Stansell's series of books explores the dark corners of this Eden--showing how the light of the gospel can penetrate even that cold tradition."

Paul E.Miller best-selling author of  A Praying Life and Love Walked Among Us
