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.

I purchased these books for my elderly mother and the books came as one big book. She loved the series and wants me to find her more of the webster county books so she can continue to read them. Excellent series to read>

A well-meaning friend bought me this book. I don't care for Amish fiction in general, though I have read some that I enjoyed. This book however, is laughable in its quality and I question the authenticity of it at some points. I have never thought the Amish were big on a personal relationship with God, and were more about their traditions, though I could be wrong, so I had a hard time with the attitude of the first story that Faith would be more spiritually strong if she stayed among the legalistic Amish rather than return to the "English" world. The plots are not very original, and too often the best course of action is shoved down the reader's throat with scenes where first the heroine thinks about a need she has, then the parents have a scene where they think about the need and a solution, then so do the neighbors down the street, then so does the hero, etc. By the time everybody and their brother has reached this conclusion, I am feeling a bit insulted that the author doesn't think I can see where this very predictable plot is going. The emotions the characters have seem very contrived and surface, and are easily resolved or changed with the course of a few lines. I didn't grow to care about the characters very much and I am surprised that such poor writing made these bestsellers. Most of what Barbour publishes, in my experience, is inferior in quality. A cardinal rule that I have heard from many editors and authors (who are better writers) is that you shouldn't have characters exposit information to the reader through dialogue that they wouldn't need to say to one another because they already know it. Yet these characters are constantly saying, "As you know, Bob..." and going on to have very artificial conversations so the author can tell us back story. The first ten pages of the first book was back story, which is not good writing. It should be woven in slowly to interest the reader. I am struggling to get through the second novel in this volume, only because my friend bought it for me as a gift.

Book Review Nov 16, 2008
Great Book. Great author. I have loved every book I have read by this author. The Amish culture brings to us a sense of a family, strength, patience, hard work, strong faith, and a love. They are a great inspiration to everyone. Even though I learn their culture from reading fictional stories...I have taken away a new perspective of things and a new sense of calmness.
