Author Cynthia Yoderabout this book: I wrote this book after readers told me how much they enjoyed my memoir that was based on my Pennsylvania Dutch Mennonite family (Crazy Quilt.)

There aren't a lot of books about Pennsylvania Dutch Mennonite Life written by people in this tradition. And yet it's such a rich tradition -- and those of us who were immersed in it know the most about it! So my interest in preserving the history of my "folks" gave me motivation to write these books.

Mennonite on the Edge is about a young Mennonite woman from Lancaster, PA, who encounters life outside her community as she follows the love of her life to New York City. But can you live in the city if you are a country girl? Also -- can you trust that your relationship is going to work out, if you have someone in your past who has hurt you? How do you learn to trust again? Those are the central themes faced by the main character, MaryJo, in this romance novel.

While this is categorized under Christian Fiction because of the main characters' affiliation, there are no obvious Christian messages in the book, except for the universal principle of forgiveness. It is not a so-called "Clean Romance," as there is substance use, and implied sex.

I hope you enjoy it! If so, please come by and send me a note! I love to interact with my readers.
