A literary novel from Tamar Myers
The poignant, yet uplifting tale of a naïve Amish woman s banishment from her community and her passage into the real world. It is the story of her struggle to come to terms with life-altering decisions. It is a novel about religious conflict and hard choices.
Although the author of twenty-five nationally bestselling novels, Tamar Myers, like her protagonist, Anna Hostetler, counts drawing and painting as her first love. Tamar began college as an art major, but and switched to English after just one class during which the professor ridiculed her assignment. Tamar reasoned (falsely) that writers receive less criticism.
Tamar counts America s first Amish settlers among her ancestors. Her mother was a Yoder, her grandmother a Hostetler, and both of her mother s parents are direct descendants of the patriarch, Jacob Hochstetler. There are several Amish bishops in her family tree.
She now lives in South Carolina with her husband, plus a Basenji dog named Pagan and a Balinese cat called Mr. Cheng. She plans to take up painting again when she retires.
