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.

As Wanda E. Brunstetter works her writing magic, she unravels another wonderful tale about the Amish life, perfect for any day that you would like a book to read.
This is a lesson-learning tale about Rachel Yoder of Lancaster County, a young girl who finds herself in a lot of trouble during the winter. From letting her cat in, to having a bet for a sled race which ends up in a creek accident, to much, much more. Each time she tries to make it better she gets herself into even more trouble. Can she cure herself all the mischief she is getting into? Or, will it continue for the rest of the entire winter? Then, in the end, Rachel finds out that patience has its own rewards, and no matter how much trouble you get into, your family still loves you.
The author is very successful at bringing out Rachel's true feelings after her many accidents. The writing in "Out of Control" is very well done, and it leaves you wanting to read more by this author.
An experience that both Rachel and I have in common is when we both spilled paint on a special piece of clothing, and then, trying to get the paint off, end up in a worse situation than when we started.
Any person of any age can read this book, because you definitely learn the lessons that Rachel uncovers through hard work and perseverance.
I recommend this book to any reader. I would like to see Ms. Brunstetter create a series about Rachel's big sister Esther, and possibly even a series about her older brother Jacob. I enjoyed this book because it brings out memories of hilarious times. It also brings out some bad memories, but that doesn't get me down now that I have read this book. I have never visited an Amish community, but after having read this book I hope to someday.
My opinion on this book is -- out of one through ten, with ten being the best -- I would rate it a nine. This book, "Out of Control," by Wanda E. Brunstetter, was one of the best books I have ever read in my entire life. It was like a rollercoaster that kept going up and down -- in a good way.
