More About Wanda E. 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.

Marvelous penmanship Oct 29, 2008
The writing skill was as if you were living within the book. The characters play well on your mind as to what they will do next. Suspense holds you to the end! Brunstetter is an awesome author.
Heartwarming Oct 13, 2008
There is something comforting about the way Wanda E. Brunstetter writes. Her books are just something you can slip into bed get all cozy and then slip into a story that makes you feel good. This was the first book I read by her and I was surprised I enjoyed because I had not read any Christian Fiction before. The characters where funny, and inviting. The Amish settings is interesting and romanticized a little I think but I still enjoyed it. If you are looking for something simple, fun and with some religious meaning to read then I suggest this book. You get so invovled in the settings and characters that you feel like you are there eating with them, playing with them and working with them. I think partly the author realizes this as well because she sometimes adds extras at the end of the book like recipes that the character made in the book, which is nice to see. This is the first book in the Webster County Series and following it is On Her Own and Dear to Me.
A new look at an Amishman Jun 2, 2008
I love reading about the Amish and I believe Mrs. Brunstetter's books are the best! Going Home is a great book that I would recommend to anyone. One of the reasons I love this book is because it shows a softer side of the Amish, especially the men. Some people think the Amish are unforgiving when it comes to family members leaving the Faith, but this book proves that to be a wrong assumption. It also shows how an Amishman can farm or do any other "man's work" and still love to do other things, such as baking.
I love to use Mrs. Brunstetter's books as a witness to my non Christian loved ones.
Wanda comes through again Jun 1, 2008
I'm never disappointed when I pick up a book from Wanda Brunstetter. Her account of the Amish faith is so accurate. I enjoyed Going Home; it shows how important family ties are. I also read On Her Owna and Dear to me fromt he Webster County Series. I can't wait for the final book.
My parents were both raised Amish and left when they married. I still enjoy reading about the Amish....especially the way Wanda brings families to life.
Worlds apart...can love make them one? Jun 1, 2008
In a unique way, Brunstetter takes the characters in Going Home and gives them a twist that one might not expect to see in a novel based in an Amish community. A young widowed woman, Faith, who has left the fold to explore the English world, has come home with her six-year-old daughter, but not to stay. She continues to be enamored with the world of entertainment and wants only a good home for her daughter. A young man, Noah, who prefers to bake over farming seems to be the disappointment of his father. Yet, the scripture verses he attaches to each baked gift uplift the recipient showing him that he is doing the Lord's work. Can these two people from the same background, yet from completely different worlds, find love that the Lord has intended for them? In another brilliant story, Brunstetter brings the reader into the Amish world as the lives of the characters unfold before your eyes.
