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 over 60 books with more than 7 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 books have been translated into four foreign languages.
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.
Wanda E. Brunstetter currently resides in the state of Washington.

"2nd Book in the Daughters of Lancaster County Series" Oct 16, 2008
Written by: Wanda Brunstetter Published by: Barbour Reviewed by: Stephanie Rollins for ReviewYourBook.com 10/2008 ISBN: 978-1-59310-714-7 "2nd Book in the Daughters of Lancaster County Series" 5 stars Wanda Brunstetter hung the moon, I believe. I would love to meet her one day. She writes such enjoyable books. This book is the second in the Daughters of Lancaster County Series. As the first, The Storekeeper's Daughter, this book has much more depth and less dialogue than her other books. This book also has a cliffhanger. Go ahead and buy all three, so you can read them in order. I do not have the third in this series, so I am left wondering.... There is also a 3 in 1 book, so that may be the best bet. You cannot go wrong with Wanda Brunstetter. Read and recommend.

The Bishop's Daughter May 7, 2008
The Bishop's Daughter was somewhat predictable, but I couldn't wait to finish it anyway. It really held my interest to the point of being hard to put down. I only with this wasn't the last in the series.
