Product Description

Product Description

Granny Weaver started a knitting circle believing women are stronger spun together, just like her wool. But she was young once with her own struggles. In 1963 Deborah Byler is twenty-one and has turned down seven marriage proposals from hopeful suitors in Millersburg, Ohio. At her parent's request, she goes to live with relatives in the new Amish settlement in Smicksburg, Pennsylvania, praying she'll find a match. Jeb Weaver lives in a strict Swartzentruber Amish settlement, and he can no longer abide under the rules of the Ordnung. His older brother left the family farm and settled in Smicksburg, and convinces Jeb to do the same. When Jeb meets Deborah, he finds her too liberal and outspoken. Deborah thinks Jeb's judgmental and a complete stick in the mud. Their constant clashing makes sparks fly. Will an African American man, who hitchhikes around the country to attend Martin Luther King Jr. marches, help Jeb and Deborah see their own prejudices? "Karen Anna Vogel again bring us another heart warming Granny & Jeb story. A love that surrounds all those who read it." Pamela Jarrell ~ Whoopie Pie Book Club

More About the Author

A trusted English friend among many Amish in Western PA, I want to share with you about these wonderful people I've come to love. We live in a terribly fast paced world and people are longing for simplicity. We need to get back to what's important; faith, family and friends.

The Amish Knitting Circle was birthed when Trestle Press contacted Suzanne Woods Fisher to write an Amish serial. Suzanne graciously referred them to me. Thank you Suzanne!

Being in a knitting circle myself, and seeing how women open up about their joys and problems, inspired me to write this series. The six women in the Amish Knitting Circle all have problems relevant to women today, and I hope readers will learn how problems are faces the Amish way, in community, confronting problems instead of ignoring them, and so much more.

I currently own Thrifty Christian Shopper, found at www.thriftychristian.com and on Ebay and Amazon. I have a B.A. from Seton Hill University, and a Masters in Biblical Counseling from Andersonville Theological Seminary.

In my spare time I enjoy birding, photography, knitting, watching BBC Period Drama's and spending time with my husband and four grown "kids", who are now my BFF's ;)

I really enjoyed getting to know a Granny and Jeb. It is interesting to see what ideas were considered 'Progressive' and a bit risqué in the Amish community of the time! Granny and Jeb's love for each other and for God shines through.

By Helen E. Hevener - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Karen Anna Vogel wows us with yet another book about Granny Weaver in Smicksburg, PA!!! Granny and "her girls" are preparing for another Christmas when Granny starts to have memories from a Christmas back in 1963!!! Quickly "her girls" catch on and want to hear how Granny and Jebadiah Weaver met- so Granny Weaver sits down and relays the story to them.. A beautiful moving story- love lost- love regained- love forever!!! I will always love Karen Anna Vogel for introducing her fans to Granny Weaver. Granny Weaver is my favorite of ALL Amish characters ever in an Amish book!!! This is a very easy story to follow -very easy story to fall in love with- defintely a five star book in my way of thinking!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amish Knitting Circle Christmas 28 Oct 2012
By Amish Fiction Author Sicily Yoder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have really enjoyed the Amish Knitting Circle series, and I have really gotten attached to Granny. She is such a goodhearted person who, when weaving one day, decided that women were like colorful strands of yarn, and if they could be weaved together, come together, they could be stronger. Ms. Vogel's writing style is exceptional, and she keeps you engaged in her books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless and Authentic Page turner... 3 Jan 2014
By Robin A. McIlvaine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have lived among the Amish and worked with them for nearly 30 years. Yet I've never read an Amish genre book and I'm an avid reader. I actually shared this book with 4 of my local Amish friends before I decided to pick it up myself. They liked it. That says a lot.
This is set in Smicksburgh early 60's. When Jeb picks up the black hitch- hiker my learning curve began as theirs unfolded. A Martin Luther King activist to boot! It was nice to get the Amish perspective of that period.
As Deborah and Jeb's love evolves, it teaches us along the way. Love the historical and biblical references. And I loved the heroism of the leading man. In so many ways. I'd say this was written by a person following their calling, a teacher. I simply loved it.

I loved each book. Each character was well developed and believable. I especially loved the concept of casting off our worries to God through prayer. I wanted to become a part of their knitting circle! I highly recommend this series to anyone who loves realistic Amish fiction.
