Good morning! It is my pleasure to welcome author Laura V. Hilton to the Inspired Prompt. Laura has released a new Amish novel, Firestorm.
Good morning, Laura.
Can you describe yourself in three words?
Laura: Quiet, bookish, imaginative.
I could use those three words also. Must be a writer thing 🙂
Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?
Laura: Montana. I’d love to research the Amish community there.
Sounds like an inspiring working vacation.
If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?
Laura: Oh heavens. I don’t know. Maybe “Who am I?” by Casting Crowns.
Wonderful choice. Casting Crowns is one of my favorite singing groups. We’re so glad you dropped by, Laura.
Readers, Laura is graciously offering a giveaway of a copy of Firestorm, reader’s choice of format. Please leave a comment below to be entered.
Bridget Behr and her family migrate from the bustling Amish community where she grew up in Ohio to the mostly unpopulated Upper Peninsula of Michigan after a stalker breaks into their home. While her father and brother try to find work in the area, the family is forced to reside in a borrowed RV until the house and barn are rebuilt. While Bridget is hoping for a fresh start, she’s afraid to trust anyone—even Gabriel, the overly-friendly Amish man who lives nearby. Bridget thinks he’s a flirt who serial dates and doesn’t even remember the girls’ names.
Due to not enough construction work in his Florida community to keep him out of trouble, Gabriel Lapp has been sent to Michigan to work. His father is desperate for his son to settle down. When the family walks into Gabe’s home in the middle of a thunderstorm and he discovers their circumstances, he offers to help with construction. For Gabe, the beautiful girl he teasingly calls “the recluse” once he discovers she doesn’t attend youth events, confuses him like none other.
As Gabriel and Bridget grow closer, they realize there is more to a person than meets the eye. Just as Bridget is finally settling into her new life, and perhaps finding love, tragedy strikes. Now Bridget and her family must decide if they should move to another Amish community or dare to fight for the future they’d hoped for in Mackinac County.
