Book 1 of the Heaven on Earth series
Interrupting the ordered routine of the Mecosta County Amish settlement, an angelic visitor awakens Judith to a new faith.
All Judith Fischer ever wanted is to marry within her community and raise a family. She longs for the day when her parents will allow Levi Plank to officially court her.
But on the day Judith suspects Levi will ask her parent’s permission, her younger brother Samuel has an accident under her charge. Rushing to Samuel’s aid, Judith spies a strange man helping him; a man she later believes was an angel.
When she shares her conviction with her family and close friends, she is shocked to find that no one believes her, including Levi. In the days following the accident, the angel visits Judith with information that may guide her down the path of faith, should she choose to follow.
As her community slowly distances themselves, only one person is willing to stand up for her?the bishop’s son, Andrew Lapp. But can he convince the settlement to listen to her? With a show of faith that flies in the face of her conservative upbringing, can Judith hold strong to the promise that there are even greater things in store for those who believe in God’s miracles?

A wonderful insight into the Amish Culture, a glimpse at their everyday life. You will be wondering who will be planting the celery for the following fall weddings.” ~ B&N REVIEW
“This book was a little different than other Amish Christian fiction books I have read but It was a nice change of pace from the usual way one is written. I loved how more Amish words were used and the fact that something unfamiliar to the Amish community was happening. In the pages you find love, hope, faith, perseverance, and trust. It reminded me once again why I love reading Amish fiction books!” ~ AMAZON REVIEW
“I must say Ruth Reid did an awesome job! This has to be one of the most spirit filled books I have ever read. The lord has given this woman the gift to write. As soon as I finished the book I gave it to my sister-in-law on a Sunday, to read and she brought it back to me the following Sunday already having it finished! Her words to me when she handed the book back “I must admit, I couldn’t put it down.” I would tell anyone to read this wunderbarr book.” ~ CHRISTIANBOOK REVIEW
