If you enjoy Amish fiction as much as I do, you’ll be excited to hear that A Place at Our Table, the first book in Amy Clipston’s new Amish Homestead series, releases next month. A lot of treasured memories are centered around the family dinner table, and here’s some of Amy’s thoughts about her own family table …
Q: What was your favorite comfort food as a child, Amy?
I think it’s always been popcorn!
Q: Who does the cooking when you are on a tight deadline?
Since I work full-time and write several books per year, my mom keeps our house running. My mother usually does the cooking, but occasionally I make something.
Q: What is your family's favorite dinner?
One of our favorites is my mother’s sauerbraten, which I always request on my birthday. We also enjoy having breakfast for dinner, such as eggs, pancakes, or French toast.
Q: Who most often gets the job of washing dishes and how is that decided?
It’s usually my mother and me, but lately I’ve forced the boys to pitch in too!
Q: What's something you have wanted to cook but fear cooking?
I wish I had more time to bake. I’d love to try more Amish recipes, such as whoopie pies or pretzels, but I really don’t have time.
Amy, thanks for giving us a glimpse into your own home and family traditions. We eagerly anticipate your next book, A Place at Our Table.

ABOUT THE BOOK
Kayla Dienner has suffered her fair share of heartache, which is why she vows to protect her heart at all costs . . . until she meets Jamie Riehl.
Along with his volunteer work at the local fire department, running his Amish farm keeps Jamie Riehl busy. He barely has time to eat at the family table, never mind find someone to date. But when he meets Kayla Dienner, he is smitten.
Kayla tries hard to deny her attraction to Jamie. After all, she’s spent the last year discouraging her younger brother, Nathan, from becoming a firefighter. The death of their older brother in a fire a year ago is fresh in her mind—she can’t bear the idea of putting her heart on the line every time the sirens blare.
Then tragedy strikes, and Jamie wants to extinguish any flame between him and Kayla. Can Kayla set aside her own fears to save the love she was determined to deny?
The first book in the Amish Homestead series, A Place at Our Table invites us to a quiet community in Lancaster County where love burns brightly no matter the cost.
