Publisher's Summary

As a budding journalist with a major newspaper, Remy McCallister is eager to prove herself. While investigating an unsolved crime, Remy winds up in the tightly woven Amish community of Lancaster County, the last place she would ever expect to find herself. The story leads her to Adam King and his ten younger siblings, who are trying to sustain their warm, loving home in the wake of the murder of their parents. Although Remy tries to remain professional, she is captivated by the Kings. With her own mother gone and her father disengaged from their relationship, Remy longs for a home and a family just like that of these good, simple people.
Suddenly patriarch of his large family, Adam struggles to do the right thing for his siblings, his community, and his God. He neither wants nor needs the complications that spirited Remy brings. But as much as he tries to push her away, even as he counts all the ways this lovely outsider cannot possibly remain in his world - or in his heart - the wondrous light she shines upon his troubled soul cannot be denied. Adam can only pray for the strength and the faith to get this Englisher girl out of their lives for good.
Snowbound with the Kings, Remy experiences the wonder and the chores of a simple winter among the Plain People, as well as the friendship of their warm community. When her peaceful interlude ends, does she dare to reveal a killer in their midst, knowing that she may lose the love of this special family and this remarkable man?

A simple Winter

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book is pure pleasure. The way the Amish are portrayed is absolutely genius. It is like taking a vacation in your mind. I didn't want it to end so I went on and bought the next two in the series.

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Simple Winter?

Remy was describing the home life of the family she was visiting and the feeling of love and warmth and how she wanted this life. I felt like I was in the room with her experiencing the companionship.

What about Cassandra Campbellā€™s performance did you like?

Cassandra does an absolutely superb job. Her voice adds to the whole experience of being around these very gentle people.

Any additional comments?

Please don't pass up the opportunity to enter into a gentler world.
