Wanda Brunstetter has a new Amish series that is similar to her other series and those of Beverly Lewis, but different. This book actually makes the Amish seem a bit more realistic that some of the other books that make them seem close to perfect. Wayne's mother has some overbearing and not too Christian attitudes which makes her seem more like the rest of the world. If you enjoy reading Amish fiction, give this new series a try.
I like to read Amish stories because I grew up close to an Amish community. When I go home to visit my family, I like to shop at the Amish grocery stores (very similar to whole foods or health foods stores near where I live now). The people are kind and willing to share from their knowledge. I appreciate their simple life.
