New York Times and USA Today bestselling Christian novelist Beverly Lewis continues her tradition of Amish stories with the Annie’s People series.

In this first book, Lewis addresses young Annie Zook’s inner conflict between the strong bonds of her family and faith and the allurement of her talent. Her love of drawing has prevented her from choosing a husband, much to her Old Order preacher father’s consternation. Annie’s feelings grow further convoluted when her longtime pen pal from the outside world Louisa Stratford comes to visit and encourages her to cultivate her gift.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 2/20/2014

    " I read this for a book club. Interesting portrayal of modern day Amish life, but didn't grab me and make me want to read the rest of Lewis' many, many books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J | 2/12/2014

    " Fun, easy read about the Amish. I enjoyed it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denice | 1/27/2014

    " A good look at amish life. I'm sure I'll read the series. A little predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lwf | 1/26/2014

    " Each books ends in a way that you need and want to read the next in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robyn | 1/25/2014

    " I like reading these fun novels because they are about Amish people which I enjoy reading about, and they are fun and wholesome too. The story throughout this series (Annie's people) was entirely too predictable and monotonous at times, but it was still sweet. I actually had to find recipes and make Shoofly pie and Chicken corn chowder because I was so interested in what they tasted like! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 1/21/2014

    " I love this author, the way her characters come to life, the way you are drawn into her stories. Couldn't wait to read the next book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Natalie LaRose | 1/18/2014

    " This series is a little too predictable for my liking. I had a hunch of who people were and where they were going, in this book (the first book in the series) and was really upset to find out that I was right on almost everything I thought. However, even though I had a pretty good idea of what would happen in the first book, most things didn't happen until the last book, so the series was a little too drawn out. Overall, it was a pretty good, light read, and I learned a lot about the intriguing Amish life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joy Moore | 1/14/2014

    " Love it, love it, love it! "

    " This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. The plot is very intriguiging, and it has taught me a lot about the Amish and Mennonite people. I look forward to reading the next in the series :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Malia | 1/2/2014

    " good, quick read but it had so many similar topics as her first series had. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bekah | 12/12/2013

    " I'm not really in reading novels about the Amish people, but I really liked this series. There was just something about the main charecter, Annie, that I really liked and the story was really well put together. Beverly Lewis did a really good job writing it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 11/17/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki | 6/10/2013

    " I just couldn't get into this series. I made myself suffer through this one and just couldn't go on to the next. I'm not a Beverly Lewis fan, which is too bad since she has published so many books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tonya | 5/20/2013

    " I was slightly disappointed in the ending. I really thought the main charactor would go another direction, but I also could see the wisdom in the direction she choose. Pretty good book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim | 3/12/2013

    " good book, new series about amish, about a preachers daughter who has a passion for drawing/painting which is a big nono in this particular amish order. towards the end i think it starts getting predictable, i have a feeling on how the ending will happen, even though two more books are in the series "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Donna Davis | 2/17/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaelee | 6/7/2012

    " This is my first foray into Beverly Lewis. I've had a book by her for years from my mother in law but never read it. I think I liked it. I would have given it 3.5 stars but didn't want to discourage anyone from reading by marking it 3 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 5/16/2012

    " Good book although a bit slow for me - but defenitely sweeps you into the amish life. I felt almost stressed or apprehensive reading it for this poor woman and living with her mother. I just wanted her to find happiness! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 2/12/2011

    " This is the first book in a 3 part series. It was a litle slow but kept me interested. Not sure the next 2 will do the same, but I want to know how the story ends, and the author wrapped in enough plot lines to keep me intrigued for now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Linda | 2/5/2011

    " I liked the story. It is interesting learning about the Amish people, but it is a little to slow- nothing really exciting happens. I just don't know if I want to read the next one for that reason. "

    " It was nice to read this nice book along with Hunger Gamers, needed something to balance that out, but I wasn't happy with how the series ended. I did like learning more about Amish and it made me reflect more on my beliefs. Sometimes information was repeated way too much. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Seneca | 8/20/2010

    " It was really good because it gave great insight to the Amish community and how different that we all are and how our world is connected. "
