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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Schools Out (Rachel Yoder V1)?
Excellent Book for children with a christian message! Apr 20, 2008
This is a terrific series. I read one chapter a night to my 5 year old daughter and she loved it! She could not wait for the next book so I purchased it as soon as I could on this site. The main character, Rachel, is a normal 10 year old who innocently gets into trouble. She really does not go looking for it but it seems to find her any way. This book teaches lessons about love, respect, and forgiveness not only from God but from others as well. It could be described at "Little House on the Prairie" meets current day Amish. We look forward to reading the rest of the series as it come out.
School's Out Oct 1, 2007
I read this book to my 5 and 7 yr old grandchildren. It kept their interest and each night when we read a portion they acted like they new the children and that they were friends. This book is a great compliment to the Amish series. Thanks for bringing the younger children into your reading circle.
Outstanding!!!!!! Aug 7, 2007
Oh My goodness! This brought back memories of my child hood. Rachel reminded me of me when I was a kid. This Amazing story of the little girl who just has trouble follow her whereever she goes was an outstanding book. Being a teacher I could relate to the things Rachel Was doing or going to do. I cant wait for book 3 of the series. Happy reading.
Poor Rachel its always trouble Schools Out Aug 5, 2007
Poor Rachel it seems like she is always in trouble. From getting locked in the root cellar to losing her kitten for a while. Rachel just day dreams about what fun she will have in the summer, but "himmel" things just arent going her way at all.
She has fun teasing her "bruder" who says shes a baby, but she tries so hard to act big. A good book for chgildren as well as adults. Thank you again Wanda for another "Wunderbaar" series. Debra
