Editorial Reviews


A wonderful contemporary romance with characters who are strong in their faith and their courage. They want to do the right thing for right reasons with the least amount of distancing and hard feelings on both sides. Newport writes about the Amish with grace and respect, and handles their issues with the outside world with care.
(Patsy Glans RT Book Reviews 2015-08-01)

Brightest and Best is a fitting novel in light of curent events, but it is also a truly enjoyable read. Subtle humor, endearing characters, and an inspiring story all combine together to ensure its place as a top pick for both historical and Amish fiction fans.
(Carrie Schmidt Family Fiction Magazine 2015-08-01)

This is a strong historical novel that will leave readers thinking.
(Amy Phelps The Parkersburg News and Sentinel 2015-08-23)

I read this book all in one sitting, and the only advice I have for any potential readers is to have a clear scheduled when you pick up Brightest and Best because you just won't want to put it down! Any reader who likes historical fiction, Amish fiction, fiction with a Christian background, or just a plain good read will love this book. I highly recommend Brightest and Best and am looking forward to reading more from Olivia Newport in the very near future.

Book Description

The collapse of a one-room schoolhouse leads to state-mandated changes in the education of Amish children. And when the government finally approves a separate Amish school, Ella Hilty is asked to teach, and she must choose between her heart’s dream of marriage and answering the call to do what is best for her community.
