The Rest of the Story

Younts’s Amish background lends authenticity to the tale, informing the real and relatable characters in this fascinating glimpse into an often elided part of America’s history.

I am a coffee fanatic. My husband roasts green coffee beans from all over the world in our garage. I drink it rich and black. Kenya AA with a city roast...fabulous.

Younts’ characters radiate lifelike warmth, and religious faith is woven seamlessly into their honest struggles. This deeply moving read reveals the truth about that era’s state hospitals, treatment of unwed mothers, and prejudice toward Amish conscientious objectors.

As much as I love coffee I am also a pretty big fan of tea. I love blending my own brews and currently Vanilla Jasmine is my favorite.

One of the highlights of my day is reading aloud to my daughters...especially around the dinner table after my husband has come home from work. 

I love watching Project Runway, Downton Abby, and Golden Girl reruns. 

Seamlessly blending historical content with fiction, the author takes a heartfelt glance at loss, renewal, and forgiveness. In fact, Younts’ personal insight into Amish life continues to distinguish her in the well-populated genre; her characters are more dimensional and relatable than many.

I'm almost always cold and I'm asking for an electric blanket for Christmas this year.

I believe that housekeeping is the troll that lives under the bridge.
