        New for our inspirational readers is “Anna’s Healing” by Vannetta Chapman. The story takes place in an Amish community in Oklahoma. When a tornado strikes the farms surrounding Cody's Creek, Anna Schwartz's life is changed forever. She suffers a spinal cord injury and suddenly finds herself learning to live as a paraplegic. Three people, Chloe Roberts, Jacob Graber, and Ruth Schwartz, join forces to help Anna through her darkest days. Chloe is an Englisher who writes for the local paper. Jacob has recently arrived in town and stays on as a hired hand at her uncle's. And Ruth is her grandmother, a woman of deep faith and a compassionate spirit. Then one morning Anna wakes and finds herself healed. How did it happen? Why did it happen? Her life is again turned upside down as the world's attention is drawn to this young Amish girl who has experienced the unexplainable.
