Author:Jan Drexler
Publisher: Love Inspired Historical
Release Date: March 1, 2018
Genre: Inspirational Historical Amish Fiction
Love in Plain Sight
As nanny for her nephew, Judith Lapp’s finally part of a vibrant, joyful Amish community instead of living on the outskirts looking in. But teaching her neighbors’ Englischer farmworker to read Pennsylvania Dutch wasn’t part of her plan. And the more time she spends with Guy Hoover, the more he sparks longings for a home and family of Judith’s own.
Guy figured he would never be truly accepted by his Amish employers’ community—even though the Mast family treats him like a son. But Judith’s steadfast caring shows him that true belonging could be within his reach…if he and Judith can reconcile their very different hopes—and hearts.

My Thoughts
This was a quick, fun read and one that I am happy to have had the chance to read. Ms. Drexler’s work is fantastic and I loved the way the story flowed. She created a perfect combination of English and Amish worlds and blended them in a way that makes the reader feel like they are right there in the center of the plot. 

Judith and Guy’s characters are chiseled perfectly. An outsider looking in on the Amish world, Guy’s character was one that really tugged at my heart. I loved Judith’s character, as well, and really felt her dreams become my own. That’s an awesome feeling when that happens! The way that Judith and Guy interacted, and the way that Guy tried to fit into the Amish community, really kept the story interesting! 

This is a 4 star book and I highly recommend it. The characters and the faithful inspiration and the hope for belonging really jump within the pages. Ms. Drexler is superbly talented and the research she does shows on the pages of this new release. I can’t wait to read another amazing novella by this author! Well done, Ms. Drexler! Well done. 

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.*


jan drexler
Jan grew up surrounded by books and storytellers. With Pastors and Teachers populating both sides of
her extended family, we aren’t surprised that she wanted to be a first-class storyteller herself.

Born and raised in Michigan, Jan is the descendant of Amish, Mennonite and Brethren immigrants who
settled in Berks, Somerset and Lancaster Counties in Pennsylvania in the mid-1700’s. The descendants of
these immigrants pioneered in Maryland, Ohio, and finally Elkhart and LaGrange Counties in Northern
Indiana in the 1850’s.

During the years when Jan was raising and homeschooling their children, she and her husband moved
nine times in thirty years, finally landing in South Dakota where they enjoy incredibly Michigan-like
weather. A northerner is always a northerner!

The ideas for Jan’s books come from the stories told by her parents and grandparents, seasoned with a
lot of research and imagination.
