“I found myself holding my breath wondering what was going to happen to this couple.” Susan Dyer, GoodReads Reviewer
"Mennonite on the Edge treats readers to a love story set in two worlds: among the delis and blues bars of New York City, and amid the winding roads and idyllic cornfields of Pennsylvania Dutch country. The struggles and triumphs of MaryJo and Adam are sure to resonate with anyone who has ever tried to balance the claims of love and work, self and other – not to mention anyone who’s ever tasted a really great shoo-fly pie."
