When Ashley Emma was twenty-one she decided to go to Unity, Maine to stay with Amish families and immerse herself into the Amish culture so she could write realistic Amish novels.
"Making friends with the Amish in Unity was life-changing for me," Emma says. "I saw life differently after I spent time with the Amish. They made me realize nothing matters more than spending time with family, working hard, and being grateful for simple things like apple dumplings. I realized how important it is to slow down and take the time to tell your family that you love them."
These unique journals' rare photos literally show readers the places you are reading about--even what inside Amish homes look like. Come along on the fascinating journey as Ashley Emma learns everything she can about the Amish as she rides in buggies, shells buckets of peanuts, attends Amish church services, helps make 100 quarts of applesauce, learns Amish customs, and teaches in the schoolhouse. Most of all, she makes lasting friendships with the Amish which make the characters in her novels so realistic.
One raving reader wrote in her review: "Enjoyed this so much. It was the real thing. So many times the stories are either overly romanticized, too unreal or showing only the dark side. It is nice to see the True life. How the Amish live every day. Thank you so much. I would like to see more of the real writing, or fiction that shows the True character. I also greatly appreciate clean and pure writing. Books my grandma could read with clean language and high morals. These tend to be so rare. Keep up the good work and do not change this element of your writing and style.Thank you again."
The books have several five-star reviews from adoring fans, and this shortened review really stands out from the rest and captures the theme of the books.
"...Emma’s attention to detail, gift of observation, discernment, and straightforwardness, for me, is what makes her a credible writer. ...Emma jots in her journal, 'Even though their lifestyle is different, we still have a lot in common. We all share many of the same interests and beliefs. If not for the old-fashioned clothes, I would have thought they were any other non-Amish Christian family.' Lovely. It is candid moments like these where we see Emma’s enlightenment. Maya Angelou says, 'We are all equal. For when we are cut we all bleed red, we all breathe the same air, and share the same planet.' Also, I appreciate Emma's cleverness to use identifiable objects we are familiar with—the yellow street sign with a horse and buggy; the female prayer kapp when introducing us to the Amish community. These points of reference help locate us; gives us a sense of place. Then, Emma juxtaposes the familiar with the unfamiliar—modern amenities we assume Amish do not have: mirrors, perfume, lotion, a phone shanty, and a bathroom with an indoor toilet and shower. ...I would definitely recommend this book." -Marion Thomas, book editor and founder of the Hattiesburg Writing Institute, www.hattiesburgwritinginstitute.com
This life-changing experience is what helped shape Emma's bestselling novel "Undercover Amish" of "The Covert Police Detectives Unit Novels," along with the upcoming sequel "Amish Under Fire" about the reality of human trafficking in Maine, which will then be followed by "Amish Amnesia." The love and admiration Ashley Emma has for the Amish shines through in her writing. All of Emma's novels cover heavy topics ranging from domestic violence, sex trafficking, kidnapping, rape, stalking, and forgiving when it seems impossible. They star heroic women who overcome challenging obstacles.
