Amy Lillard’s Blog Relay and Amish Giveaway

blog relay 6

Welcome to LEG #6 of the Courting Emily blog tour. If this is your first stop, it’s probably best to follow the link below and go back to the first blog so you don’t miss anything. Remember: one lucky winner will receive a purple-themed basket filled with some of James Riehl’s favorite things.
Now on to the next segment…
(To go back to the beginning– )

Courting Emily

She tilted her head to one side, obviously surprised by his request. “Jah.” She straightened her shoulders as if preparing for an opposition.
“Alone,” he clarified.
She raised her brows, but said nothing else on the matter. “We could step out on the porch. That way I can keep an eye on…” She trailed off.
“Can I have another cookie before you go?” Johanna asked.
Emily laughed. The sound refreshed the room. How long had it been since any of them had laughed? Too long, for sure. But he knew much of the beauty in it came from the woman herself.
“Nay, liebschdi,” Emily said. “You will ruin your middawk.”
“Jah. Okay.” She bent her head down over her picture, so low even the tied strings on her kapp touched the table.
Elam opened the door and motioned Emily to step onto the porch.
“Jah?” she said as she steadily gazed at him. She was not going to make this easy.

Johanna took on a life of her own. She has a great deal of spunk and vigor and misses her father terribly.

Ready for more? Join me over at Cheryl Baranski’s blog.

But first, don’t forget to leave a comment here to be eligible for the drawing. Don’t know what to say? Tell me how many brothers and sisters you have. Elam and Emily both have five sisters. (I have two sisters, one brother, and an adopted sister who came to live with my family after I’d gone to college.) Or you can just say “hey!”

Cheryl’s blog:

This contest runs January 29, 2015–February 5, 2015. Any comments left after midnight EST will not be eligible for the drawing.

About Brittany

Seven girls & two boys. I have a whole slew of cousins, 2nd cousins etc. I do wished we lived closer at times. So many memories of family get togethers!
