Author Amy Clipston Book Series to read in Order

I may love a good Amish Fiction story—but only by the right author. I can still remember the first book I read by her, A Gift of Grace, the first book in her Kauffman Amish Bakery series. It cemented my love of her writing style and opened my eyes to the world of Amish fiction (which I admittedly don’t read a lot of). Other than writing Amish Fiction, Amy Clipston also writes Young Adult fiction, Contemporary Romance, and a few Non-Fiction books as well.
