Carrie also finds support in the friendship she shares with her two best friends Amelia and Emma, and relishes the weekly afternoons they share working on their quilts. Carrie and her husband Melvin love each other, and together have survived many lean years.

If not for the kindness of their church community, they would have had to miss more than one meal a day. But now, Melvin has found work that finally provides a good living. Carrie hopes that having more to eat will finally allow them to start a family.

Yet month after month, they remain childless. So when Carrie overhears two English women talking in the fabric store one day about medical options available to non-Amish women in her situation, she takes it as a sign from God. Melvin and the bishop see it differently, however.

Is it really God's will that she pursue this, or is her longing to be a mother tempting her to stray from her Amish beliefs?

Herb of Grace

Senft, Adina 2014

Amish widow Sarah Yoder has been struggling to raise her two teenaged sons and provide a home where family and members of her Old Order Amish church can find fellowship and friendship. Though she is close to her in-laws, lately it feels like her relationship with her boys is splintering.

Her stepson Simon wants to move out west with his cousins to find work. And her youngest, Caleb, is spending far too much time over at the tumbledown home of a man who left the church long ago. Henry Byler only returned recently to Willow Creek when he inherited the family farm--under protest--and now seems caught in a struggle between the faith of his childhood and the world he's come to know.

Ruth Lehman, the local Dokterfraa, believes Sarah should use her gift for growing plants to become an herbal healer, too. Sarah is reluctant, however, uncertain if caring for others will take her away from her family--the place where she believes God wants her.

But when she feels called to help members of her community, she soon discovers that the heart can be scarred as deeply as the body. As she compiles her herbs, she waits for God to do his healing work in a man who rues a harsh decision, in a lonely prodigal who has lost everything, and maybe even in a herbalist-in-training who firmly believes she will never love again.

Keys of Heaven

Meanwhile, as Sarah's relatives attempt a little matchmaking between her and a visiting Amish man, she struggles to let God show her His choice of partner and not allow her friendship with her neighbor, Henry Byler, to grow into anything more. Henry has seen some success as a potter since a major store commissioned his work for their catalog.

But the trouble is they want to market him as Amish. Though he was raised in the faith and lives in Amish country, Henry has never joined church and doesn't plan to. Which also means, despite the attraction between them, he must keep his distance from Sarah.

But what will happen when Sarah and Henry are called upon to help a runaway whose Englisch family is blind to how lost their son has become? The plant Sarah calls Keys of Heaven can grow in impossible places, but it's hard for people to find their own place, which creates quite a temptation for Sarah to take matters into her own hands.

Who do you listen to when every word might be a lie? Brought up in a strict religion in the small town of Smoke River, Washington, Chloe Montoya has seen the leaders she trusted disgraced and watched helplessly as her best friends rejected their faith.

When radio evangelist Luke Fisher is invited to headquarter his ministry in town, Chloe is drawn to him. Against her church’s will, she joins the staff at the station as bookkeeper and, while she’s totally behind Luke’s vision for the community, she begins to realize that under the message is a sound that frightens her … Fresh out of the state police academy and assigned to the Organized Crime Task Force, Ray Harper is sent to Smoke River to investigate an underground church that seems to attract the criminal and the predatory.

What he finds is a town prospering in its religious fervor—and a dark-haired, dark-eyed innocent who he’d bet his first year’s salary has never been kissed. Ray has no use for religion. She’s forbidden even to speak to him. But Luke Fisher’s growing power threatens what they both love—and sometimes you have to listen to someone … and hope that they hear you … “A brave and talented author who looks at the darkness as well as the light.

Pocketful of Pearls

Senft, Adina 2015

From RITA Award® winning author Adina Senft comes a series of domestic suspense novels flavored with faith. In the small town of Smoke River, Washington, everyone knows the Elect of God. They’re good religious people, honest, hardworking—and they’re hiding some dreadful secrets.

Dinah Traynell is trapped in a life she didn’t choose and cannot leave. Since childhood, the Elect are told it’s God’s will that they serve the Shepherds, the itinerant ministers of the church. Since puberty, that service has become darker for Dinah Traynell.

More physical. Unthinkable and deeply secret. Though she dreams of another life, she’s never known anything but the church, so while she submits, she still resents being forced to cast her pearls before swine. So when she answers the door one night to find a homeless man on the step, her first act of rebellion is to help him.

Dr. Matthew Nicholas, disgraced university professor, had never heard of the Elect before he was robbed, left penniless, and wandered into Smoke River. He has never met a woman like Dinah, so vulnerable and yet so strong, with a capacity for love that has no outlet except in the care of her flock of chickens.

As she slowly grapples with the flawed faith of the Elect, Matthew struggles with his fear of getting involved. He’s grateful for meals and a room, but he’s only the hired man. When Dinah’s teenage sister abandons her own baby, its innocence is the catalyst that forces Dinah and Matthew to trust one another … and two lost souls catch a glimpse of hope.

But is it enough to dispel the darkness? Or is it already too late for Dinah to break free without being trampled? “A gut-wrencher with poignant style and refreshing breaths of humor.” —RT Book Reviews

Over Her Head

Senft, Adina 2015

From RITA Award® winning author Adina Senft comes a series of domestic suspense novels flavored with faith. In the small town of Smoke River, Washington, everyone knows the Elect of God. They’re good religious people, honest, hardworking … and they’re hiding some dreadful secrets.

What kind of mother suspects her own daughter of murder? Laurie Hale has the perfect life—and the perfect family to go with it. All she wants is for her kids to find the popularity and success in school that she enjoyed back in the day. But one night on the Smoke River bridge, a bid for popularity goes wrong and one of the teens from that weird church in town is found dead.

When the police begin to investigate her daughter Anna, fear and suspicion begin to eat away at everything Laurie values. Anna is just one of several teenage suspects, but none of them is saying a word, and peaceful Smoke River divides along religious lines—to the point that Laurie is even asked to bow out of her prayer group just when she needs their support.

Her marriage starts to crumble and her standing in town shows its shaky foundations. Laurie doesn’t want to face the truth. But it’s the job of investigator Nick Tremore, her cousin, to find it. What if Anna really was there the night that Elect girl, Randi Peizer, was killed? Why is Nick spending so much time with Randi’s mother? And what kind of person is Laurie if she can doubt her own child’s innocence? “As tragedy unravels a community and a church, a good woman is forced to face the stark truth of her own faith.

Once more, [Senft] has created a compelling story of crisis and spirit.” —Mary Jo Putney

From RITA Award® winning author Adina Senft comes a series of domestic suspense novels flavored with faith. In the small town of Smoke River, Washington, everyone knows the Elect of God. They’re good religious people, honest, hardworking—and they’re hiding some dreadful secrets.

He’d find Kailey some day. One assignment at a time. One prayer at a time. A cult took Ross Malcolm’s ex-girlfriend and baby daughter six years ago. He’s never stopped looking for his little girl ... and now he has a sidearm, a badge, and a soul-deep commitment to protect the innocent.

When the state's elite Organized Crime Task Force assigns him to Smoke River, Washington, to find out why the death rate among children belonging to an obscure religious group is so high, he’s sure it’s going to be one of the toughest cases of his career.

But first, he has to find a way in … Julia McNeill is the daughter of an Elder and the almost-fiancée of a prospective Deacon in the plain church known as the Elect of God. Her future position is secure … except that she’s not sure she wants it.

She’s never quite been able to fit in, to measure up in comparison with her dazzling sister, who married an Elder and produced two beautiful kids. It breaks Julia’s heart that her nephew Ryan is so close to death and no one can figure out why … but when she asks questions, the church leadership shuts her out.

And then a biker with eyes that have seen too much walks into the bookstore where Julia works, and everything about her life begins to change … including her belief in God’s ability to keep her and her nephew safe … “A brave and talented author who looks at the darkness as well as the light.

The Longest Road

Senft, Adina 2016

“Forgiveness is the longest road, yet it is the shortest distance between two hearts.” —Whinburg Amish proverb Thirteen years ago, two little Amish girls disappeared from an orchard in Whinburg Township, Pennsylvania. It was just a blip on the TV news … until it became very, very personal for Megan and Ashley Pearson.

Ashley doesn’t believe the story has anything to do with her. A straight-A student, she’s leaving for college with her boyfriend, and nothing is going to interfere with her plans for her life. But Megan isn’t so sure. She’s had dreams and nightmares that could be explained by long-buried memories.

A road trip to Whinburg Township might give her some answers—and give her empty life a purpose besides playing video games in her parents’ basement. Samuel Riehl left the Amish church when his shame over his part in his sisters' disappearance grew too heavy to carry, and is trying to live Englisch, never quite able to look into a passing buggy in case he sees his mother’s face.

And Rebecca Riehl, the Amish woman who lost not two, but three children all those years ago, has never stopped loving them, never stopped praying for them, and never stopped hoping that God will grant her a miracle. Two sisters want the truth. Two mothers want their daughters back.

But will betrayal and loss prove stronger than love on the longest road home?

The Highest Mountain

Senft, Adina 2017

“In the lowly place of prayer, God can lift you up to the highest mountain.” —Whinburg Township Amish proverb A Colorado dude ranch is the last place that homebody Amanda Yoder would believe God wants her. But the owners have once again hired a group of Amish young people for the summer, and despite her shyness and fear of change, Amanda feels led to go with them.

Hannah Riehl has been living with her Amish family, recovering from the trauma of finding out she was kidnapped away from them as a child. But when a girl still has purple hair and a bit of an attitude, it’s hard to decide which world to live in. In Colorado, maybe she’ll be able to make up her mind—and heart—to learn the Amish ways for herself, or to leave them for an Englisch life.

Once Amanda and her friends reach Colorado, it soon becomes clear that their hard work and honesty aren’t the only things the ranch owners want. Along with making beds and wrangling horses, the Amish staff are being used as part of the owners’ advertising to attract more tourists.

Worse, it seems the Amish are being actively targeted by someone in the community—and suspected of poaching wild game. Amanda and Hannah need to hold their faith closer than ever—and the way to regain their own reputations as well as that of their new Amish friends might just be found on the highest mountain.

“In this first book of a new series, Senft, a prolific author of 36 books, has crafted an appealing tale of searching for one’s true identity.” —BookLife on The Longest Road
