More About Wanda Brunstetter
Wanda Brunstetter is an award-winning romance novelist who has led millions of readers to lose their heart in the Amish life. She is the author of over 60 books with more than 7 million copies sold. Many of her books have landed on the top bestseller lists, including the New York Times, Publisher’s Weekly, CBA, ECPA, and CBD. Wanda is considered one of the founders of the Amish fiction genre, and her work has been covered by national publications, including Time Magazine and USA Today. Wanda’s books have been translated into four foreign languages.
Wanda’s fascination with the Amish culture developed when she met her husband, Richard, who grew up in a Mennonite church, and whose family has a Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Meeting her new Mennonite sister-in-laws caused Wanda to yearn for the simpler life. In their travels, she and her husband have become close friends with many Amish people across America. Wanda’s desire to explore their culture increased when she discovered that her great-great grandparents were part of the Anabaptist faith.
All of Wanda’s novels are based on personal research intended to accurately portray the Amish way of life. Many of her books are well-read and trusted by the Amish, who credit her for giving readers a deeper understanding of the people and their customs.
Wanda’s primary attraction to the Amish is their desire to live a devout Christian life that strives to honor God, work hard, and maintain close family ties. Whenever she visits her Amish friends, Wanda finds herself drawn to their peaceful lifestyle, sincerity, and close family ties, which is in stark contrast to the chaos and busyness that plagues so many modern “Englishers.” Time and time again, Wanda loses her heart in the Amish life, and she hopes her readers will, too.
Wanda E. Brunstetter currently resides in the state of Washington.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Sister's Hope: Large Print (SISTERS OF HOLMES COUNTY)?
Disappointing conclusion Oct 29, 2009
While John had been one of my suspects since the end of book one, I had been hoping it wasn't him. When finally revealed, the reasoning for all the "attacks" was downright silly. So was the reason that he'd worked so hard at implicating Luke.
That said, except for the animal cruelty, which was totally unacceptable and unnecessary, this book was likable. The first book was the best, in my opinion. But, this was also very good. I'd been hoping that John and Rosemary would get together, but Carl was a nice, sweet surprise.
I did like how faith played a prominent role throughout the series. Unlike the Beverly Lewis books, which preach that the Amish faith is mistaken and everyone should become Mennonites, it allowed the characters to let their faith lead them.

One of a series of books my wife likes to read. She enjoys her books and I enjoy TV! The book was price right along with fast delivery.

Martha Hostettler's family is being attacked, and she is determined to find out who is the culprit. More and more evidence seems to stack up against her admirer Luke Friesen. How will he be able redeem himself to her, not to mention her father?
With many authors writing about the Amish culture, it is hard to find a book that has a interesting and unique plot. Mrs. Brunstetter has no problem in this book. The air of mystery permeated the pages. I had my own suspicions while reading of who did what and why. I wanted to finish as quickly as possible to find out who the attacker was! The Amish ways are intertwined in the book, avoiding the feelings of being awkward or forced.
Questions raised in the previous Sisters of Holmes books are finally answered in this book. The suspense has been growing throughout the series and has come to a satisfying end. I know readers of the first two books will not be disappointed in the surprising (although slightly abrupt) conclusion.
Success!!!!!!!!!! Mar 16, 2009
Never fear fans, it finally happens!!! After 2 years of trouble, we finally find out in this book, who really is doing all these horrible things to our favorite family.
We will be suspicious of several people. Luke who Roman fired, Gary Walker who promised he would get even with Grace, maybe even the sheriff??
As always, our favorite family grows and also grows with the Lord.
I am sad that this is the last one I have in this series. I can't get enough. Ms. Brunstetter is a wonderful author.
