    Doris Ackerman says:

    I’ve been a fan of Amish lifestyle and fortunate enough to live within a hour and a half ride to Lancaster county Pennsylvania which has a large Amish community. We used to go up there a lot camping or staying at motels in Amish countryside. I have every book ever written by you and other authors of Amish novels. Now that age has caught up with my Husband and I we are not able to get up to Lancaster as often as we used to altho our grown Son and Daughter and families will take us if we ask. But looking back on all the years we used to go was so much fun, and now I read all my Amish novels with a Kindle my Grandchildren gave me for Christmas. Took Grandima awhile to figure out how to use it, but I love the Kindle and have been giving my collection of paperback Amish book away to nursing homes, friends, and anyone who would like them. But now I am going to break tradition and I will read your new book you wrote with your Daughter in law, as I am sure I will enjoy it as much as I do all your Amish novels, but do admit I am glad you will continue writing about the Amish. You are one of my favorite authors and I know in the past you personally wrote to me which made me happy. God bless you and your family and I am looking forward to you new books coming soon. Sincerely, Doris Ackerman Brick NJ

    Hello Cindy. I love reading your books and really look forward to your new novel. I just received this message on my email and would love to enter to win your books but the deadline to enter was on the 30th of June.
    I also look forward to a new series on the Amish. Reading your books destresses me and gives me sense of calmness and I literally get lost in your words.
    God Bless

    Barbara Mabee says:

    Love ALL of your Amish stories and read them as soon as they came out. I also shared them with a lot of quilting friends from my church. We meet in the Fellowship Hall every other Wednesday to quilt for outreach (about 200 quilts a year) and, of course, share and discuss Amish books. I think we all like that ‘step back in time’. I’m looking forward to your Christmas story but also glad more Amish book are coming. Thank you and blessings on your work, Barb

    Kim Gregory says:

    Cindy, I live a hop, skip and jump away from Asheville and would love to read The Gift of Christmas Past. Even if I don’t win the autographed copies, all of the books will be on my Amazon wish list. I read about 12-14 books a month, so I have to wait for things to go on sale or be on Kindle Unlimited, so it may be awhile before I can get to them, but I will get to them! I love that little something you put in your stories, as you mentioned, making you one of my favorite Amish authors. Reading something non-Amish should be a treat! Kim

    Gracia says:

    Cant begin to say in written words how pleased my sister (Ruth) and myself are with your books. Would be nice to tell you in person but guess the written word will do. One nice thing is: You have a period of time in between books ( when a series) and this makes the waiting all the nicer. Feel as though we have read many Amish books by many authors and fortunately, you write something different in all of yours, which we appreciate.

    This is so exciting! I’ve been reading your books from the beginning and got my mom and a bunch of other folks at church hooked on them, too.

    Judy Tulloch says:

    It would be an honor to win the autographed books. When I started reading Amish Romances, the first books I read were by Wanda Brunstter and Cindy Woodsmall. This was in 2011. I loved the books I read and loved both authors. Because of these two fantastic authors! Grew my live for Amish romances. It took me awhile to realize that other author’s wrote Amish romances!
