The Princess and the Prayer Kapp features two memorable classic fairy tales told Amish-style!


The first book, Cindy's Story, is a loose retelling of the Cinderella story.


Cindy is devasted when her father dies and her stepmother whisks her away to an unfamiliar state. She lives, not as a daughter and sister, but as a servant to her stepsisters and stepmother among a community that doesn't even know she exists...


Until a runaway horse enters her special sanctuary and her world is turned upside down by its handsome young owner. Can kind Nathaniel help Cindy escape her fated future? Or will his secret past keep them apart - and dash all Cindy's hopes of leaving?


Book two, Rosabelle's Story, is a loose retelling of Beauty and the Beast.


Although Englischer Rosabelle and Amish Amos are good friends, Amos knows a lasting romantic relationship between them can never be. But the kiss that never should have happened has him questioning everything - especially his upcoming marriage to stuffy Sabrina. 




When Rosabelle sees that Amos is destined to marry an Amish woman he doesn't love, she becomes concerned. She knows the Amish culture is quite different than her own, but she feels Amos deserves a better future than a loveless marriage. 


But when an accident changes Amos's life, his future comes to screeching halt. Can he pick up the pieces and move on? Or will he live the rest of his life in self-pity and isolation?


What readers have said:


FIVE STARS! "...I am a huge fan of Amish fiction and I don't think I have ever read a book quite like Cindy's Story by J.E.B. Spredemann. While written in the style of Cinderella, there honestly is so much more substance to this story than the classic fairy tale... anyone looking for a fast paced romantic read that packs a(n) inspirational punch will enjoy it as well! - Brenda Casto, Readers' Favorite


FIVE STARS - Readers' Favorite"...Ms. Spredemann has a unique storytelling ability that makes me feel like I have actually stepped into the lives of the characters, experiencing their hopes and fears, as well as the tests that God sometimes put(s) them through. The positive, faith based messages are very well done and fit in perfectly with the storyline. A good clean read that inspires as well as entertains. Ms. Spredemann is quickly becoming one of my favorite Amish fiction writers."
