A Simple Autumn
Lauer’s latest in her Seasons of Lancaster series (after A Simple Spring, 2012) is about two brothers navigating the troubled waters of love. Jonah King loves his close-knit community in Lancaster County and he is in love with the beautiful Annie Stoltzfus. But heartbroken Annie has feelings for his wild older brother, Gabe, who is courting schoolteacher Emma Lapp and is unwilling to cut ties with the outside world--much to Emma’s dismay. As the autumn leaves swirl, Jonah and Gabe must find the courage to reconcile their heritage with their hearts.
