Kelly Irvin, award-winning author of Mountains of Grace and a Long Bridge Home, says, “With her debut novel, Pockets of Promise, Laurie Stroup Smith has elevated a lovely Amish romance to a universal coming-of-age story.”

Smith was named a Finalist in the 2017 ACFW First Impressions Contest for this story and a Semi-Finalist in the 2018 and 2019 ACFW Genesis Contests for additional writing.

Released by Vinspire Publishing on April 30, 2020, Pockets of Promise is about a young Amish woman—torn between two worlds and two men—who travels to the Amish snowbird community of Pinecraft, Florida, where she receives wisdom and guidance through secret letters tucked into the pockets of a special quilt.

Kelly Irvin, award-winning author of Mountains of Grace and a Long Bridge Home, says, “With her debut novel, Pockets of Promise, Laurie Stroup Smith has elevated a lovely Amish romance to a universal coming-of-age story.” 

Vannetta Chapman, award-winning author of Agatha’s Amish B&B Series, agrees, saying, “A fresh new voice in Amish fiction…Smith pulls us straight into the confusion of an Amish rumspringa…touching, authentic, and sweet.”
