Eugene, Oregon—04/23/15 — Harvest House Publishers is pleased to announce that bestselling fiction authors Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner’s The Amish Blacksmith has been nominated for a 2015 Christy Award in the Contemporary Series category.

The Amish Blacksmith, by Mindy Starns Clark and Susan Meissner, tells the compelling story of apprenticed blacksmith Jake Miller. Tasked with helping his boss’s niece connect with their Amish community in Lancaster County, Priscilla’s love of horses and her ability to soothe them draw Jake’s notice, and her fragile heart calls to his in a way he did not expect.

The Christy Awards were started in the spring of 1999 when nearly a dozen Christian publishers confirmed the need for establishing a Christian fiction award to recognize novelists and novels of excellence in several genres of Christian fiction. The 16th annual Christy Awards for excellence in Christian fiction will be presented at a dinner to be held on June 29, 2015, in Orlando, Florida.
