Life With Lily – Book Review

A winner for Suzanne Woods Fisher and Mary Ann Kinsinger!!

While reading Life with Lily, I felt like I was living right there with Lily! This story was told in a child’s tone. A very easy read. I could have read it to my children and they would have understood it.

Lily Lapp is a six year old Amish girl who has to plenty to do and plenty to learn. There are many changes that happen to Lily’s life – a new baby in the family, starting school and moving. Life can be challenging for a little girl.

I can’t wait to read about Lily’s next chapter in life in the new book book A Home for Lily, coming in February 2013.
About the book:

Lily is six in this story, just starting first grade in a one-room schoolhouse in upstate New York. Her parents are busy building a farm, and soon animals join the family—Jenny the cow and Chubby the miniature horse. A baby brother arrives, too, which Lily has mixed feelings about. (She wanted a sister!) Aside from a mischievous friend like Mandy Mast, Lily is happy at school and even happier at home. Trouble is brewing at the schoolhouse and change is on the horizon for Lily and her family

Suzanne Woods Fisher lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has one husband, four children, one son-in-law, a brand new grand-baby, and a couple of dogs. She graduated from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California. Suzanne has contracts with Revell for six more books about the Amish, both fiction and non-fiction. She is also the host of “Amish Wisdom·” on, a weekly radio program featuring guests who are connected to Simple Living.
