During August 2009, bestselling author Mindy Starns Clark was a guest at the Apple Bin Inn while doing research for two upcoming books about the Amish in Lancaster County… A Pocket Guide to Amish Life (release date: January 2010), and Secrets of Harmony Grove (release date: November 2010).
Ms. Clark is the author of Shadows of Lancaster County, Under the Cajun Moon, Whispers of the Bayou, the “Million Dollar Mysteries” series, the “Smart Chick Mysteries” series, and the nonfiction how-to book The House That Cleans Itself. (A singer and former stand-up comedian, Mindy is also a popular inspirational speaker and playwright.)
We arranged for her to spend a conversational afternoon with an Amish family at their farm, followed by a home-cooked dinner at the home of another Amish family, and she and her husband came back raving about both experiences. She said, “My husband and I can’t thank you enough for all that you did on our behalf! Between that and the incredible meals and your wonderful inn, our entire visit was simply a dream come true. Thank you so much for everything!”
It was our pleasure, Mindy! We look forward to reading your new books and sharing them with our guests!
