Have you been following Jennifer as she takes us for a walk through some of the Bibles most famous stories? The first of her stories, An Amish Blessing, is the story of Ruth. You know the story, Ruth is widowed and chooses to stay with her mother-in-law Naomi rather than go back to live with her people. Poor and destitute Ruth and Naomi move to Bethlehem where Ruth meets Boaz …and you know the rest of the story they live happily ever after.
Imagine that same storyline retold in an Amish setting.
I’ve read the story of Ruth in the Bible a dozen times and never dreamed it could be woven into an Amish setting so wonderfully. I love to read stories that are based on famous stories. I already know what will happen, but not sure how it all will play out. If you like the classic stories, you’ll love to read this J.E.B Spredemann’s series that mimics real stories from the Bible.

Tracy Fredrychowski is a country girl, author, homesteader and everything simple living. She has a passion for writing about the simpler side of life, much like the life she lived growing up in rural Pennsylvania.
Her life has always been intertwined with the Amish, and it’s only fitting that she has a genuine passion for their simplicity, sense of community and God-centered lives.
Growing up in Northwest Pennsylvania she spent her childhood immersed deep in Amish Country. The clip-clop of horse and buggy woke her each morning as Amish men drove past her childhood home on their way to work. As a young woman, she was traumatized by an Amish murder that involved a family member and changed her life forever.
Even though she currently lives in South Carolina her travels take her through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Wisconsin’s Amish Country every year. During those stops, she researches the communities she visits and prides herself on writing Amish fiction that truly represents the Amish culture. She considers herself very fortunate to have made friends in those communities and values the information they share and wants nothing more than to represent their lifestyle as accurately as possible.
