Browse the inspirational fiction section of your local bookstore, and you will likely find cover after cover depicting virtuous young women cloaked in modest dresses and wearing a pensive or playful expression. They hover innocently above sun-drenched pastures or rustic country lanes, often with a horse-drawn buggy in the background—or the occasional brawny stranger. Romance novels with Amish protagonists, such as the best-selling trailblazer The Shunning by Beverly Lewis, are becoming increasingly popular with a largely evangelical female audience. Thrill of the Chaste is the first book to analyze this growing trend in romance fiction and to place it into the context of contemporary literature, religion, and popular culture. Valerie Weaver-Zercher combines research and interviews with devoted readers, publishers, and authors to produce a lively and provocative examination of the Amish romance novel. She discusses strategies that literary agents and booksellers use to drive the genre’s popularity. By asking questions about authenticity, cultural appropriation, and commodification, Thrill of the Chaste also considers Amish fiction’s effects on Amish and non-Amish audiences alike. -- Julia Spicher Kasdorf, author of The Body and the Book: Writing from a Mennonite LifeSuzanne Woods Fisher, author of Amish fiction and host of Amish WisdomLynn Neal, Wake Forest University

Shana Slater is looking for a place to call home when she arrives at the Lapp farm in Leola, Pennsylvania. Her unfamiliarity with the Amish has left her more curious than timid, and the apartment the Lapps have for rent is as appealing as the stunning, rolling countryside. Equally charming is her landlord's handsome son, Emanuel Lapp, who's more than willing to educate Shana on the beauty and richness of the Amish way of life. Shana soon finds herself falling for both the lifestyle and Emanuel. But nothing comes without sacrifice--not even the prospect of a perfectly simple life.
