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 Test: Large Print (SISTERS OF HOLMES COUNTY)?
An Amish Mystery full of Tragedy Nov 5, 2008
Ruth's story is the larger part of this book. Her older sister Grace is now married and part of the Amish after spending 10 years away from home. Martha is still at home, caring for her dogs and trying to get a business going. There is a little history, a little of several love stories, a little religion, and a huge amount of tragedy, suspense and mystery as bad things continue to happen to Ruth's family, the worst of which is their buggy accident which took the life of her newlywed husband. There is one twist in the end which causes this book to conclude on a sweet note. I hope there will be another book in this series.
GOOD READING Nov 4, 2008
VERY GOOD BOOK WITH MIX OF ROMANCE AND AMISH HISTORY OF THEIR WAY OF LIFE KEEPS YOU INTERESTED FOR THE WHOLE BOOK
Not so good. Aug 27, 2008
I'm just curious. Are all her books this depressing? This is the 2nd series of Wanda Brunstetter that I have read and so much bad happens. In the first series a little girl gets struck by lightening too. And there is also an english reporter. Can't she be a little more creative? I am a little more than half way done with the second book in this series and have figured out how it's going to end but so many times I've wanted to put it down because it's the same old repetitive things happening over and over. How many times can this person strike one families home and not be caught by someone. They are right there working most of the time and no one ever sees anything or anyone. This person(s) must be really fast in their getaway. I'm sorry to say that this series isn't doing much for me. The first series I read "Brides of Lancaster County" wasn't quite so bad. I think when I finish these I will read more of Beverly Lewis. Not that everything in her books is good but definitely not as depressing as these. There are also a lot of typos in these books. Take your time Wanda and write a better story.
I don't understand the rave reviews Jul 23, 2008
I don't get it. I read the first and second book and was again left with no ending. The whole book focussus on the vandalisms and threats, as did the first book and still, no conclusion to that. Also, reading this book is like watching a soap opera. You can skip a page and read a page and not miss a beat. If you were to delete all of the repeating the same things over and over again, you'd probably be left with 100 pages rather than the nearly 300 that there is. I have many books by W. Brunstetter and other Amish others but must say that this series is a terrible bore.
A Sister's Test Jun 9, 2008
Another great Amish story by Wanda Brunstetter. This one is a sequel to A Sister's Secret. You'll see many of hte characters from the first book, and also, a continuation of the mystery. If you haven't discovered Mrs. Brunstetter's books, by all means get started now. You're in for a treat. A Sister's Secret (Sisters of Holmes County, Book 1)
