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.

The Quilter's Daughter (Daughters of Lancaster County #2) Aug 10, 2007
Once you've read Part 1, you must read Part 2. Wanda Brunstetter brings to life the Amish community as you've never heard it told before. She is detailed and fresh in her tales of everyday life in Amish country. When you finish one book, you have to have the next one available to continue with her saga. I recommend any of her books to anyone who wants to read a good, wholesome family story. You follow her characters from book to book and share in their plain Christian lifestyle leaving your "fancy" ways behind, at least for the moment. I cannot say enough good about Mrs. Brunstetter's books.
The Quilters Daughter Feb 25, 2007
I found this book an interesting read. It is very imformative about the Amish people, occasionaly using some of their Pennslyvania-Dutch dialect in the text.
It is the story of a young Amish women that has to decide between going to help her pregnant 47 year old mother in Pennslyvania or staying in Ohio with her soon to be husband. Then, a double tragedy stikes and leaves Abby in ruins. It tells about how she copes with these events and about how she recovers.
For people who want an uplifting read full of action, I would not recommend this book. It has a lot of depressing moments, but that makes it a lot more real than having Abby's life go on with no troubles at all. The ending leaves you hanging a little bit, but it's a good book over all.

Lousy, Jan 5, 2007
the abrupt and overly contrived happy ending left much to be desired...but then so did the entire book....too much dull dialogue....the only interesting part of the story was just left dangling...Linda and Jim and little Jimmy were totally not addressed at the end of the book....
