Here are a few sights Annie Friesen might have seen when she first discovered Westcliffe, Colorado in Accidentally Amish. Can you picture Rufus walking these streets?

Thank you for the many kind reviews and messages I’ve been receiving. It’s exciting for me to see how many people feel the collision of cultures in the story lines of the book!

    I read at least 3 Amish fiction books a month and I couldn’t put “Accidently Amish” down! Excellent, Olivia!!The way you intertwined history/genealogy with the current story was outstanding. I can hardly wait to read the other 2 books in this series. You are very talented. Keep up the good work!!

      Barbara, “I couldn’t put it down” is what every author wants to hear!

    Loved “Accidently Amish”. It’s a hard book to put down. The genealogy part was a great idea. Thank You

      Thanks, Gloria. Different readers have different responses to the historical thread. I’m glad you enjoyed that part as well as the main story.

    Accidently Amish took me by surprise and left me wanting more. It was like reading 2 books at once, which is what I do often. Content was excellent, story-line rang true. I have met descendants of the Hochstetler family through a church I attended in Morgantown, PA. This made the experience more exciting. Thank you.
