A Cousin's Promise is a sad story...but filled with problems..of which the faith of the characters over ride iin the end. It's a wonderful story.

The beginning of a new series

I have read a few books by Wanda Brunstetter and I have come to a conclusion. Wanda has an amazing following of readers that love her books and her knowledge of the Amish lifestyle and enjoy delving into that simpler side of life that so many of us just don't have. She has simple storylines that are keep your interest and are easy to follow. The only thing that gives me reason to pause is that her style is so simplistic that I feel like she tells me everything I need to know and leaves no room for my imagination to work. This book "A Cousin's Promise" is my favorite of hers so far though. It has a somewhat unique storyline that left me wondering for the first time how things would end (but I had strong suspicions).

What happens when a group of Amish young adults want to go on a little vacation and they hire a driver to take them to an amusement park, but get involved in a horrid car accident on their way there? Not everyone makes it out of the accident okay and now there are some awful consequences. Wayne loses a leg and breaks his engagement to Lorraine because he doesn't feel that he can support her and be a real husband. She doesn't want to give up on him, but he keeps pushing her away. Her old boyfriend hears about the accident and comes back to see how she is doing and quickly realizes he still loves her. What will Lorraine do now?

This is the beginning of what just might be a really entertaining series by Wanda. If you haven't read any by her yet, I would reccomend this one as a good starting point.

    Highly Recommended

    I have not finished the book yet, but it is really good so far. I also bought the other two books in the series.

    I love books about the Amish as we did live in the area for many years

    I loved the book and was kept wondering how it would all come together till the very end. I love the stories about the Amish and the way scripture and love and kindness to others are all part f the story.

    "Keeps you guessing"

    A Cousin's Promise
    Written by: Wanda Brunstetter

    "Keeps you guessing" 4 stars
    Wanda Brunstetter is the leader in Amish fiction. Her latest, A Cousin's Promise, does not disappoint. When a tragic accident occurs, a few are injured, and a few die. Those dealing with the grief have to learn to not push the ones who love them away.
    Wayne, who lost a leg, is having a hard time. He thinks that he cannot marry because of his handicap. He encourages his fiancé, Loraine, to seek a relationship with Jake. Will Wayne come to his senses before Jake and Loraine plan their future? I really did not know how this one was going to end. Brunstetter is known for happy endings, but she kept hinting at a twist.
    Put this on your summer reading list.
