Author Notes

Beverly Lewis was born in Lancaster, Pennsylvania on April 17, 1949. She received a degree in music education from Evangel University. She grew up as an Assembly of God minister's daughter. Although she was not Amish, she had a close family connection to Old Order Mennonites, including her maternal grandmother who left the Mennonite community when she married.

Her first book, Mountain Bikes and Garbanzo Beans (now titled Big Bad Beans) was published in 1993. Since then she has written over eighty books. Her titles for children and young adults include several series including the Cul-De-Sac Kids, the Girls Only (GO!), and the Holly's Heart. Her adult fiction books include The Heritage of Lancaster County series, the Abram's Daughters series, The Rose Trilogy, and the Home to Hickory Hollow series. She has received numerous awards including two Silver Angel Awards for The Postcard and Annika's Secret Wish and a Gold Book Award for The Shunning. In 2014, she made The New York Times Best Seller List with her title Child of Mine. Her title, The Love Letters, made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2015.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Now that Lenten diets are safely over, readers can tuck in to the gorgeous repasts featured in The Beverly Lewis Amish Heritage Cookbook: Over 200 Time-Tested Recipes. Lewis, whose inspirational novels set in Lancaster County have been Christian bestsellers, helps readers experience the place through its butter-drenched, sugary, damn-the-calories foods. Some of these are family recipes Lewis is descended from Old Order Mennonites while others are just for simple, delicious country fare. Recipes are accompanied by snippets from Lewis's novels and occasional verses from the Bible. This cookbook is, as one of Lewis's characters might say, "wonderful-good."
