Books by Sharon A Lavy

Sharon A Lavy lives with her husband in SW Ohio. When not reading, writing, or sewing for her family, she enjoys traveling with her husband in the small plane they call PaPa. 

She is best known in the novel writing community, as that German Baptist lady. 

In the Old German Baptist community she's a dressmaker, a pattern maker, and the sister who writes.

And in her own mind she's a wife, a mother, and a grandmother, but above all a child of God.

Her greatest desire is to be a woman after God's own heart. Sharon has a heart for hurting women, and writes women's fiction. Because when it's all said and done it's all about relationships.

Other Books By Author Sharon A. Lavy:
In the rich back drop of the farming cradle of the Ohio Valley, a peaceful lifestyle seems possible. Highly likely … at least on the surface. It’s 1973. And three young women want to discover their place in this male dominated world. 

In spite of the economic slowdown Roberta "Birdie" Alexander is determined their family business will both survive and thrive. She'll back up that promise with hard work, and Alexander's foliage will become the standard for all of the Ohio Valley. 

Because if she works long enough and hard enough, her father will love her as much as he loves her older brothers. But Birdie’s dad seems determined to marry her off. 

In her Christian walk, Birdie approaches her relationship with her heavenly father in the same way. 

How much will she risk ... to hold onto her own will and secret sin of self-righteousness? 

Will losing her job wake her up? Losing a lifelong friend? A brother? Or will it take losing the very presence of God? 

Sara Brubaker, an only child, was two-years-old when an Old Order German Baptist couple adopted her. She's become a beautiful woman, and works as secretary for Alexander's Nursery and Greenhouse. 

Now she's torn between wanting to live in the normal world of fun and fashion, and joining the Dunkards to truly belong with her adoptive family. She loves the country living and the peaceful lifestyle. But the Anabaptist people dress so old fashioned. Does she really want to look ... Amish? 

Then she learns her parents have been keeping secrets. Sara’s dad side-steps her questions. Was the deception deliberate? 

Irene West, Birdie's lifelong Sunday school friend, misses having a father figure around … where is he anyway? She’s become very boy crazy, which causes Birdie to struggle with the friendship and Irene to struggle with life. 

Birdie thinks it's her job to shame Irene into acting more like a Christian. Will Birdie overcome her self-righteous nature before it's too late … for Irene? 

The three struggle to find their true identity, dreams, and paths in Christ. Can they forgive their fathers and find the courage to grab hold of a new dream?

One day, when Wesley was four he walked up to his Grandma Sharon, laid his little hands on her lap and said, “Grandma, tell me a story about when you were a little girl.” “How about,” Grandma Sharon said, “if I tell you a story about when your mommy was a little girl.” “Climb up here onto my lap and let’s look though this photo album while I tell you about what happened one spring day.”
