Heroine Interview from Plain Secrets by Kit Wilkinson:

1. Hannah Nolt, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I suppose what stands out the most about me is my auburn hair and green eyes.

2.  What do you do for fun?

I love the outdoors. I enjoy a good game of baseball or taking a pleasure ride on one of our many horses.

3.  What do you put off doing because you dread it?

I need to go through my daughter’s hope chest. I don’t want to do it because it will make me so sad. I do miss her so very much.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

I am most afraid that I will somehow act out of selfishness and do something unpleasing in the eyes of God and my family. I strive very hard to avoid ever making such a mistake.

5.  What do you want out of life?

I want to be useful and grateful. What I do not want is to be alone.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

Family. Community.

7.  Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read?

Well, as a general rule, the Amish do not read fiction. We read the Bible and the news and agricultural reports. But I have read one or two novels when I was younger. My favorite was The Yearling by Marjorie Rawlings.

8.  If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I wish I still had my mother and father around, especially my mother. It would be nice to go to her for advice and comfort from time to time.

9.  Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

We do not keep pets like the English do, but there are a couple of cats milling around the stable. I call one them Henry. He’s a grey tabby and he loves a good rub on his belly.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

Oh my, I have never dared think about the possibility of such a thing. I find the here and now quite exciting and enough of a challenge for me.
