More About Wanda E. Brunstetter

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.

Rachel is back comes trouble...
Wanda E. Brunstetter does it again. Just Plain Foolishness is the continuing story of Rachel Yoder, an Amish pre-teen. This is book 6 in the series.
Rachel has a new little sister, and she is feeling just a little jealous and left out. It seems she's always in the way. She and some of her English friends decide to go to an amusement park. Rachel does not ask permission. Her family is frantic with worry. When Rachel is around, trouble is not far away.
I love this series. I always know that I can give them to a child to read without worrying about the content. Wanda E. Brunstetter allows readers a glimpse into the Amish lifestyle. Regardless of the culture, girls face the same emotions. They want to be loved, and when a new baby is around, they often feel left out.

A glimpse into Amish everyday life  Feb 9, 2009
Reviewed by Brianne Plach (age 11) for Reader Views (2/09)

Have you had the urge to help but some people told you that you not helping? Rachel Yoder wants to help. Her grandfather's and father's barn burned down. As in the Amish way, the whole community comes to help rebuild it. Rachel Yoder tries to help but it seems like she is always in the way. Why is it that the boys can help the men, but the girls can only bring beverages to the men and boys or help in the kitchen?

Rachel feels like she is no longer important to her family. After all, her family seems more interested in the new baby than they do her. Maybe she should go away, and she does. She and her friend take off without telling the Yoders where they are going. Her family is frenzied when they cannot find her. Is her exciting day at the amusement park really worth it?

In "Just Plain Foolishness," like the other books in Wanda E Brunstetter's series "Always Trouble Somewhere," the author gives young girls a chance to get a glimpse into Amish everyday life. Perhaps Amish girls struggle with the same things that other girls do too. If a girl is suddenly thrust into being a "big sister" she will really enjoy reading about how Rachel handles it. Wanda Brunstetter is an awesome author and I really hope she continues to write more books about Rachel Yoder.
