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 almost 50 books with more than 5 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 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.

Terrific book Feb 13, 2009
Reviewed by Brianne Plach (age 11) for Reader Views (2/09)
You need glasses! What devastating news for a young girl. Now poor Rachel may get called "Four Eyes." Rachel Yoder sees this is as terrible news. Why is it that trouble seems to be always around her? Rachel seems to have come down with a severe case of the grumpies. It seems like nothing ever goes right for her. She has too many chores to do; life as an Amish girl usually does mean a lot of chores.
In this 5th book of Wanda Brunstetter's "Always Trouble Somewhere" series, the trials continue for Rachel. Doesn't the arrival of spring mean more fun and good adventures? Sometimes series seem to drag and the next book in the series isn't as good as the first one or ones. This is not the case in this series; each book is just as great as the first.
Being a pre-teen girl myself who recently got glasses, I can understand how Rachel may feel, but I found I really do like my glasses. "A Happy Heart" by Wanda E. Brunstetter is a terrific book for teaching young girls to realize that Amish girls aren't that much different than we are!
