Author Diane Craverabout this book: In my Dreams of Plain Daughters Series, I knew while writing Book One, I wanted to eventually write a story about the younger sister, Judith. I just released Judith's Place this month. I hope readers enjoy learning more about Judith Hershberger and her desire for more education. She knows if she'd been born in an non-Amish family, she would have gone on to college. She dislikes that the Amish stop their schooling at an eighth grade education. When she decides to study in order to get her GED, her father is not happy. He worries Judith might decide to go to college and leave their Plain community. When she starts dating Jacob Weaver, Judith learns he wants to get his driver's license before he joins their Amish faith. They need to accomplish their goals before taking instructions to commit to their faith; otherwise, they will be shunned by their family and friends.

I've found my niche and thoroughly enjoy writing Amish romances. I realized recently how my father had some things in common with the Amish. His farming was a bit like the Amish. Let me explain. While farming his eighty some acres, he used his two work horses to haul manure for the fields. He also hitched them to the hay wagon during the summer while I stayed on the wagon to steer them to the next spot in the field. Then he pitched the hay onto the wagon. However, he used his tractor for planting, plowing, and cultivating. I can understand the Amish's love of horses because my dad loved his horses. He used the simple way of using horses for farming when he wanted, and used the more convenient tractor for other types of farm work.

My husband and I recently visited Amish country in Berlin, Ohio. The direct exposure to this simple way of life helped me greatly in completing the manuscript for Judith's Place.
