Hope in the Land by Olivia NewportWelcome Olivia Newport!

What fun to welcome fellow historical novelist Olivia Newport! I’ve had the joy of meeting Olivia at writing conferences, and I know you’ll love what she has to share. Her latest novel gives the popular Amish genre a fresh twist of a Depression-era setting!

Here’s a brief summary of Hope in the Land:

When Henry Edison turns up in Lancaster County to survey farm women about their domestic contributions during the 1930s, the last thing Amish housewife Gloria Grabill has time for is the government agent’s unending questions. Gloria’s hands are already full with a farm to run alongside her husband, a houseful of children, and an English neighbor, Minerva Swain, who has been trying Gloria’s patience for forty years. Gloria’s oldest daughter, Polly, wants nothing more than the traditional path of an Amish farmer’s wife, but everything she does seems to push Thomas Coblentz further away. While the Great Depression shadows the country in gloom, can Amish and English neighbors in Lancaster County grasp the goodness that will sustain hope?

Lessons from the Amish

When I wrote my first Amish novel, I didn’t know there would be many more. But I’m glad there have been, because learning and writing about the Amish teaches me lessons I need to keep learning for the rest of my life. Here are three lessons I’ve learned from researching the Amish.

  1. Avoid assumptions.

The Amish are different in different locations and different periods of history. I have to ask myself, How often do I lump people together with generalizations without first getting to know them? How often do I draw quick conclusions before understanding another point of view?

  1. We are in this together.

We might think we are living “alongside” other groups of people, such as the Amish, with a “live and let live” mindset. Actually we are living through history together, making history together in the ways we interact with each other—and with people who are not like us.

  1. People are people.

Perspectives differ. Interpretations differ about the same words, even in the Bible. But what we have in common is that people are people, and I have a lot to learn from everyone I meet about how they understand the world, how they live out their faith, how they find meaning in life.

Hope in the Land is my seventh Amish novel, and the experience of writing it once again was full of lessons I can take into my own life. How I understand myself. How I understand others. How I can make life better for someone else. How I can find joy in my own gifts. How together we can make our communities stronger in hard times. How we find hope in the land.

Since you’re participating in the Christian fiction scavenger hunt, you already know that stories take us to new worlds and new learning. You may even be able to make your own list of lessons you have learned from stories. Let’s keep learning together!

Olivia NewportAbout Olivia Newport

  89. Lisa

    Just signed up! I recently purchased one of your books but haven’t had time to read it yet. Very excited due to my lifelong interest in all things WWII. They were The Greatest Generation!! My Daddy is the oldest of six boys (had two girls, too). At one time four of them were serving overseas! All made it back safely with NO INJURIES. Two Great Uncles were POWs in Germany. They lived on neighboring farms in MS. In the middle of the despair of a German POW camp one of them recognized the other’s cocky little walk! It gave him hope to live! The other one managed to escape & go for help. Also, another Great Uncle was a Navigator for a Higgins Boat delivering troops to Normandy on D-Day. Unfortunately we didn’t know this until
    I typed his Obituary. His wife said he never considered himself a hero because he was fortunate enough to return. He told her the REAL, TRUE HEROES didn’t make it home. They gave it all — the ultimate sacrifice.

    • Sarah Sundin

      Thanks for subscribing, Lisa! What great family stories you have. That generation was certainly amazing – and humble. I consider them all heroes. They sacrificed their comfort, safety, and personal dreams – plus time with their loved ones! – for a higher cause. You don’t see much of that nowadays 🙁

    Ms. Sundin, I have subscribed and am looking forward to reading a book of yours and see how I like it. I’m in search of another favorite author, as Tamara Leigh can’t write a book for me to read every week. So, while many of my Christian friends and family are also wanting names of great authors, I’ll be able to give them yours. Once I’m hooked, I’m hooked. I have almost all of Ms. Leigh’s books, in book form and audible. Thanks for being involved in this hunt as to let us know you are out there and what we can expect from you. Looking forward to reading one and if there’s a certain one I should start with, please let me know. I would greatly appreciate it! God bless! Sherylette
