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. 

Book Bargains and Previews - Candie S.

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.
