    a truly wonderful book!

    This book is a series of four of Wanda's books. 'A Merry Heart', 'Looking for a Miracle', 'Plain and Fancy', and 'The Hope Chest'. I would give all of these books a 5 star. Each book was excellent and I was disappointed when I finished the book. If you love fiction books on the Amish, please read this book! It is well worth reading and I can't wait to read more of her other books.

    Real Page-Turners!

    This is the second series of Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish romances that I've read, and I just ordered a third. Once I begin reading one of Wanda's novels, I don't want to put it down because I want to learn what happens next and how it will end! Her books are filled with interesting details about the Amish way of life, their devotion to God and family and their dilemmas. The characters seem very real as they deal with universal problems and find heartwarming solutions. Tears of joy, and sometimes sorrow, often fill my eyes. This compilation definitely deserves 5 stars!

    A reviewer

    I simply love Wanda E. Brunstetter. She has quite a devout following, and her fans will not be disappointed with Brides of Lancaster County. A Merry Heart Miriam is considered to be an old-maid. Her boyfriend left her before they got to the alter. Years later, she is still bitter. Amos wants to marry her. Miriam is convinced that he only wants a mother for his daughter. Miriam¿s mother counsels Miriam on having a ¿merry heart¿. Will this be possible for Miriam? Looking For a Miracle Rebecca¿s legs are paralyzed. She does not let this get her down until she becomes a teenager. She sees all the others playing around, flirting. She feels different. Daniel wants to date Rebecca, but Rebecca thinks that Daniel really is in love with her best friend. Can Rebecca let go of her bitterness in order to feel Daniel¿s love? Plain and Fancy I think that this is Brustetter¿s best book yet. Laura comes from an affluent family that borders on dysfunctional. Laura meets Eli, an Amish man. She instantly falls in love with him. They begin courting, much to the dismay of everyone else. He refuses to become modern. She refuses to become Amish. Something has got to give, but what? I can¿t give away the ending. This is a must-read. The Hope Chest Rachel has come to terms with the fact that she will always be single. The love of her life is in love with her sister. Her sister ends up running off into the English world. Will Rachel¿s love finally be returned? This is a tear jerker that shows you just how far people will go for love.
