Their Sunday suits are of a plain cut and are usually of a dark color. The Confederate military’s successful counteroffensives in the Southern partisans and increasingly gloomy editorial comment in the North. Through those letters, the magazines validate readers’ choices by “valorizing the ‘everyday’” and encouraging subscribers “to join a community that shares values and beliefs and that places the past and the future within the context of family and religion” (p. 875).

Readers want Amish novels that are accurate and that they can trust for authentic portrayals. One scribe from Michigan began his letter this way: “It is a fall morning of 45˚, though we’ve had temperature in the 70s this week and has been rainy some also. Many of the Amish people I have spoken with display a mix of bemusement and disgust at the novels, especially the covers, with their airbrushed models with plucked eyebrows. I’m not a research kind of guy, I told Dad.

In Toews’ text, blood surfaces haphazardly in the slaughter of chickens, menstruation, Christ’s Passion and apostolic sacrifice, while water links the Christian baptism to two cases of suicide-by-drowning.

You could do market research to see what your target demographic would want to read if nobody knew, and then scientifically design books with What Readers Want cranked up to 11.

Friesen, Mary Ann Loewen, Paul Tiessen, Tom Penner, Kathleen Venema Lunches and Dinners can be purchased at a number of cafeterias on the University of Winnipeg campus as well as a dozen different restaurants a block or two from the University.

It is the third in the series, and references are made to previous storylines, so for that reason I would recommend reading Books One and Two first (so catch up – they’re amazing, too!) But here’s the bottom line for A Love Made New: Fuller has written yet another gem, with colorful yet believable characters. I was glad to read that Beverly is so kind and soft spoken.
