Hello there, Tracy’s friends, Barbara Wagler here.

As many of you know, Tracy is getting ready to launch my story, Barbara’s Amish Truth Exposed, on March 30th. While our backgrounds are quite different, we formed a bond while she wrote my story. Truly kindred spirits!

I thoroughly enjoyed our time together, and she helped me see that there was no reason why my past had to define my future and that God doesn’t want that for me.

My family, like so many others, had secrets. I wasn’t sure I wanted to share, but Tracy convinced me that revealing our struggles might help someone else. So, while I’m a bit embarrassed to share the ugly truth of it all, it helped me heal…and I will be ever grateful that Tracy encouraged me to be honest with my feelings.

I’m as giddy as a schoolgirl with how things turned out, and I can’t wait for you to meet Joseph. I admit I wasn’t happy when he returned to Willow Springs. We both had some bitterness to work through but let me tell you, I’m glad we did. He’s the best thing that ever happened to the boys, and I and I can’t imagine my life without him in it.

I’d love to chat more, but I had best sign off for now; my schwester Susan and my Mamm are due to arrive from Sugarcreek any minute, and I want to make sure everything is perfect for their visit. Besides, Joseph just peeked his head in the back door. I swear that man can smell a pan of brownies a mile away for sure and certain. Keeping him out of them until supper might be an issue.

Real quick, before Joseph sticks his dirty hands into the center of the brownie pan…don’t forget to pre-order my story now before she has to raise the price after launch.

You can pre-order the ebook on Amazon or pre-order a signed paperback on her website. FYI, she always tucks something extra in the package when you order directly from her.

Your new friend,

Barbara Wagler


Barbara's brownies

I was tickled Barbara wanted to send a personal message. She was so sweet; she even sent me a box of her famous brownies to enjoy. My hubby, much like Joseph, will have a hard time staying out of them until after supper.
