The Masquerading of a Psychic Mennonite: A Discussion on 3 Early Amish Romance Novels
Show Notes

This week, the MennoBrarians review and discuss some of the earliest books in the Amish fiction and Amish romance genre: Tillie a Mennonite Maid, from 1904, Sabina: a Story of the Amish from 1905, and The Masquerading of Margaret from 1908. These three texts are in the public domain so you can find and read them for free! 

Despite being more than 100 years old, these texts share some similarities to the Amish Romance texts of today - including lots of plot lines, chaste romance, and subtle agenda pushing.
