A Simple Change by Judith Miller

She never imagined a simple change could be so complicated...

Middle Amana, Iowa, 1881

When her parents decide to sell their home and move to the Amana Colonies, Jancey Rhoder must make a difficult decision. Should she give up her beloved teaching job and her carefree life in Kansas City to go with them?

Her suitor, Nathan Woodward, doesn't want her to go, but Jancey feels she must give this new life a try. Her mother is sick, and these next few months may be the last Jancey gets to spend with her. But will this move spell the end of her relationship with Nathan? And when life in Amana is far more mysterious and challenging than Jancey expected, will she choose to return to the city, or will she make this unique place her forever home?

Judith Miller is an award-winning author whose avid research and love for history are reflected in her bestselling novels. When time permits, Judy enjoys traveling, visiting historical settings, and scrapbooking the photographs from her travel expeditions. She makes her home in Topeka, Kansas. Visit her Web site at

Jancey has always lived a quiet and simple life, and she had no idea how her life would change when she agreed to move with her family to the Amana Colonies.

For anyone who loves historical and inspirational fiction, this book is an excellent choice to expand your knowledge of life in Middle Amana in the late 1800's.

At first a bit rebellious about all the rules and expectations in the Colonies, Jancey quickly felt at home and even puzzled that a simple change would have such an impact on her feelings and her heart.

I highly recommend A Simple Change ... you won't be disappointed.

  1. I've read a few of Judith Miller's Amana books. This seems like another one I would enjoy. Will have to make a note of it.
