More About the Author

I'm a wife, mother, and bona fide Southern belle. Published author, expert corn bread maker, and Squirrel Princess.

I live in Tulsa, though I was born in Mississippi. I moved to the Sooner State when I was seventeen and met my soul mate and best friend not long after. I've retained a little of my Mississippi accent though most people think I'm from Texas. (?) Rob and I have been married for over twenty years and have a son-a mom proclaimed prodigy, of course!

I love homemade tacos, nail polish, and romance novels-not necessarily in that order. I'm a big fan of country music, a staunch proponent of saving the Oxford comma, and I'm shamefully obsessed with all things Harry Potter.

I believe that God is love. I guess that's why I love to write inspirational romances. The two go hand-in-hand for me.

I have always been intrigued with the Amish culture, their gentle ways and slower-paced lifestyle. (And I love, love, love the fact that they stay married for their lifetime.) But until recently I never thought to blend this interest with my penchant for romance. Okay, okay, I'm a bit old-fashioned and even enjoy the gender roles that are present in this culture. I love to cook and take care of my family. Yes, that's me June Cleaver with a laptop.

I dislike people trying to convince me to read the Twlight series (I'll get to it or I won't, either way I'm good with it), gratuitous violence, and strawberry ice cream. (I know I'm alone on this last one, and again, I'm good with it.)

Favorite movies-(besides HP) French Kiss, Maid of Honor, A Lot Like Love, Just Married, and Sweet Home Alabama. Oh, and Miss Congeniality, Sabrina (both versions) and a 1940′s movie called Dear Ruth. If you haven't seen it, you should! A-dorable. Anything with Doris Day and most all of Marilyn's and Audrey's.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Caroline's Secret by Amy Lillard is an Amish inspirational romance which explores the subject of sacrifice, faith and forgiveness through the delightful and inspiring story of the main protagonist Caroline. Though the author is new to me, I’m deeply impressed by her writing and sense of judgment without pricking the sensibility of the readers.

The book is realistic as it portrays the struggles and dilemmas confronting Caroline who is single-handedly raising her young daughter who is the fruit of a relationship with an Englisher. She is torn between marrying the father of her daughter or a fellow Amish guy who had asked her hand in marriage. In the end, she decided she must do what she has to do however inconvenient the consequences may be.

Caroline’s Secret is thoroughly enjoyable. Author Amy Lillard’s fine writing beautifully aided by her creativity by inserting and planting characters and plot twists at the right spot make it an absorbing and entertaining read.

Amy Lillard is a new author for me, but I have always enjoyed reading stories about the Amish and their way of life. In this installment, Caroline and her daughter Emma have moved to Oklahoma to Well's Landing, an Amish community. They hope to start their lives a new with a new home, a new community and having left the past behind.

Enter Andrew Fitch, an Englisher, who moves to Well's landing to work for his uncle. He is also looking for a fresh start as a widower. He just needs to leave the past and forge a new life. Little does he realize that it will involve an Amish woman and her daughter.

But Caroline has a secret from her past that needs to come out. This secret can mean the difference between starting over or living with guilt and bitterness.

Amy Lillard explores issues of Forgiveness, Grace and Mercy. She explores our need to express our hurts, our pasts, our disappointments and live life in the present not the past or the future.

I enjoyed the book very much. It is a bit predictable, as many Amish stories are, but still this one is fresh and new and the underlying issues that are explored make it very worth the reading.

Caroline's Secret is book one of Amy Lillard's new Wells Landing Series, and if this book is any indicator, the entire series will definitely be a must read for anyone that enjoys Amish fiction/romance.

"Caroline Hostetler arrived in Oklahoma determined to forge a new life for herself and her daughter, Emma. As a single mother, she values the warmth and safety she's found in close-knit Wells Landing. She's even caught the eye of a handsome newcomer--a man who just may be the partner she longs for and the father Emma deserves. But the arrival of an Englisher threatens to lay bare the secrets she's worked so hard to leave behind. . .

After losing his life-long sweetheart, Andrew Fitch moved to Wells Landing to work in his uncle's furniture business and nurse his broken heart. Finding love again seems all but impossible--until he meets Caroline and Emma. But his plans to join their lives together may be shattered when the truth of Caroline's past comes to light--unless, together, they can learn the true meaning of sacrifice and forgiveness. . ."

Amy Lillard unravels this lovely story in such a way that the reader vividly sees things through the characters' eyes and feels what the characters are feeling. It's a story of love, joy, hope, forgiveness, sacrifice, and so much more. You'll smile, you'll sigh, you'll find your self holding your breath, and yes, even crying, all of which blend together in a beautiful story that you won't want to put down till the very end.

I received a free kindle version of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

I have read all of Amy Lillard's Amish fiction books. I have sincerely loved them all. BUT, I will say that Caroline's Secret is my favorite so far. Right from the beginning this book holds your interest. I have a confession to make. I wanted to read the last page in this book in the worst way. I needed to know a few things, hoping they would turn out the way I wanted them to. I will admit that I DID NOT read the last page. I made myself wait until I got there.

I quickly fell in love with the characters in this book. Caroline is someone I'd truly want as a friend. Emma is an adorable toddler that will capture your heart. I could easily claim her as my granddaughter! Andrew is someone you will instantly like. I can't forget to mention Esther and Abe, they will hold a special place in your heart too.

This is a story of love, romance, and forgiveness. You will smile, laugh, shake your head, you might even say, really?!, and it will bring you to tears. You will find hidden secrets and moments of, how could he do that!! You will pick up this book every chance you get and if you are lucky you might be able to read it all the way through in one day if you don't have any interruptions and a household to take care of.

Amy, you have done it again! I can not wait until book two, Courting Emily, is released in January 2015.

I highly recommend this book. It is a 5 star book many times over!
