Editorial Reviews

Walking in Grace - Vicky Everitt

I have always enjoyed reading books by this author but this was the first time to read one in a six-part serial novel. I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy reading book # 1 and was so looking forward to book #2. As described above this story centers around Meredith and Luke Stoltzfus but the the author intertwines other characters to build on to her story. The author Wanda Brunstetter does not disappoint. I can't wait to read the rest of the story.

I really enjoyed Wanda’s new book Goodbye to Yesterday and I loved the cliffhanger ending! I was really excited to start her new series and I really love how they are releasing one book each month for six months. I think this is a great idea and it gives readers more time with the characters.

Empowering Mommy - Rachael Coe

I really enjoyed this book.  It is a short one but is the first one in a series of 6...
 
Although part of the book is sad I still really like the story line.  Wanda’s books are always filled with fun happenings and serious ones too.  This is a good book to take along to a Dr or dentist appointment as it is short and can be read in just an hour or two.  I can’t wait until the other five come out!!
Books, Music, and Life - Carole Jarvis

Wanda writes in a comfortable, easy-flowing style which I find easy to read. There's more narrative than dialogue or action in this part, but I think that's in order to set the stage - to provide necessary and relevant information to help us better understand the characters and their actions. I thought the narrative was done well.

I definitely recommend this book to those who enjoy inspirational Amish fiction. Just realize that Goodbye to Yesterday is the first of six parts and therefore short.

Another great book by Wanda Brunstetter just a little different than the norm. So true to life..a young Amish couple faced with so many challenges, so many strains on their marriage.  The chance for a new career since his job lost has put such a strain on their finances, but he must travel  to his uncle's and the weather is not good .  Though it is based on Amish life, this book  fits in with what many Americans are facing today with the economic uncertainty all around us
Night Owl Reviews - Diana Coyle
This was a wonderful heartwarming story wrapped around love and family values. I’m a first-time reader of Ms. Brunstetter and I’m so happy I picked this book up. I’m now a new fan among her legion of many followers.

 

Long and Short Reviews - Stephanie Bond

I’ve not had the pleasure of reading Wanda Brunstetter’s work before this book and I’m glad I made the leap. Ms Brunstetter’s work shines. The words flow well and I was sucked into the story right away.

There is a lot of emotional play in this book. There are instances where I wanted to throttle the characters, then turn around and hug them. Kudos to Ms Brunstetter for getting me emotionally involved.

...I like this series and can’t wait to sink my teeth into the next book. Thank you to Ms Brunstetter for setting up an interesting situation between Luke and Merrie.

Brunstetter again showcases her trademark gift of storytelling in her newest entry in "The Discovery—A Lancaster County Saga" series. We learn that Luke Stolzfus has been out of work for quite some time, and it has started to take its toll on his marriage to Meredith. When an opportunity presents itself in the form of a new vocation, Luke is sure it is the answer to their prayers, but Meredith is uneasy and doesn't want Luke to go to Indiana to train with his uncle. Then tragedy strikes. Will the couple be able to move forward and trust that God has them in His arms still? The narration performed by Heather Henderson is smooth, and readers will find themselves easily drawn in by her beautiful tone of voice. The steady pace helps listeners stay engaged. VERDICT Fans of previous Brunstetter titles or of material by Beverly Lewis will enjoy this story. However, it is disappointing that the saga is being released in six segments, at $12.99 each.—Stephanie Charlefour, Garden City P.L., Canton, MI
