Editorial Reviews

Dyeing to Live - Tonya Speelman

I won't give anything away, but you don't want to miss out on this series. I love it. I love the heartwarming message of God's grace and mercies are new each day. I love all the reminders Wanda tucks in each book.
Love My 2 Dogs - Tammy Graham
I have to admit that I have never been one to continue reading a series that I had started but you betcha that I won't miss a book in this series.

I am so glad that Wanda Brunstetter decided to do this series and I hope that she does more like this! Definitely another 5 star book!

Deb4 Reading - Debbie Epperson
This is the 3rd Book in the Series The Discover-A Lancaster County Saga by Wanda Brunstetter. She is one of the best authors who write about the Amish I have read. I have a special place in my heart for Wanda. I picked up one of her books at a book store and that was the first Amish Novel I have ever read. I was hooked on them.

 

This book starts out with Meredith Stolzfus collapsing and her friend, Jonah finds her and gets her to the hospital. She is ok and her baby is also. As the story goes on, Jonah comes by to check on her and Meredith is missing Luke, her husband, who died and she has to come to grips with that. It is one of the best books I have ever read.

 

I don’t want to say anything more because I would ruin the story for you. I hope that you will pickup this book soon and read it. It is a short story and it moves really fast.

 

I would definitely suggest this book to my family and friends. Thank you Wanda for giving us Amish Fiction readers a GREAT series.

Empowering Mommy - Rachael Coe
Ms. Brunstetter throws in some more twists that keeps you on the edge of your seat and then she makes you wait again! This book takes us through more things that Meredith has to plan for, her future, her wondering if she will lose her house and many other things. I can’t wait to find out what happens!
Night Owl Reviews - Diana Coyle
Ms. Brunstetter knows how to craft an emotionally gripping story that grabs hold of your heart and doesn’t let it go. Her characters are easy to fall in love with and you just can’t help but feel like they are your own friends and family. Well done, Ms. Brunstetter! This is the third installment of The Discovery series and I highly recommend this one as well. 
Blogspot.com - Carole Jarvis

I enjoyed this third section of a six-part serialization entitled "The Discovery, A Lancaster County Saga." 
asimplyenchantedlife.com - Kristin Lail

I pretty much just kept devouring these little novellas. I LOVE the storyline and I had to keep reading.I really enjoyed this little novella and looked forward to picking up the next installment right away!
Long and Short Reviews - Kim Miller

I have to admit, I’m fully entrenched in The Discovery series by Wanda Brunstetter. I feel like I know Meredith and Luke almost as well as my good friends. The writing flows and I’ve been sucked into this series.

    Love The Continuing Saga! Once again the author kept the pages

    Love The Continuing Saga!

    Once again the author kept the pages turning in this book. I was on pins and needles hoping Meredith would not lose her baby.
    I love how family and friends come together to help Meredith out.

    I am a bit worried about Jonah Miller I might add. Is he just a friend or is he hoping for more than just friendship?

    Will Meredith be able to cope on her own? Will she be able to hang on to her house and land since money is so tight?
    I can't wait until Part 4, The Pieces of Summer, is published. Such an exciting Saga!

    Once again, Wanda Brunstetter captivates us with the ongoing sag

    Once again, Wanda Brunstetter captivates us with the ongoing saga of Meredith and Luke. This installment of Brunstetter's tantalizing serialization comes through as usual keeping readers on the edge of their sets. Meredith is dealing with grief and pregnancy with a good effort. Jonah is on the scene to purchase a horse. Susan is waiting for her mystery patient to awaken. I love the shopping trips to the Amish markets and their crafts and the Amish cooking. Wanda makes you feel like you are shopping with them and sitting right at their tables. I can hardly wait for the next book.

    Wanda is a great writer.
    Keeps you turning the pages to see if Luke will come out of a coma and then to see if he will remember who he is.

    4 STARS

    The Hope of Spring continues to keep your attention. This is the third part of six part story. It is a Amish story that follows Meredith and her Luke. It clean story. It still leaves you wanting more.

    Eddie is still in a coma not responding to anything. His nurse really worries over him and prays for him. They don't have any idea who he is. They think he is homeless.

    Meredith is back to her own home, but no one wants her to stay home by herself so her sister staying with her. When Laurie works a older widow comes to stay with her. Meredith almost lost her baby and has to take it easier.

    Now I will read the next part of the story.
    I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it by Netgalley.

    I couldn’t stop turning the pages and there was no sleep until I could find out if Meredith would lose her baby or not.
    Jonah Miller, is he just a friend or does he want Meredith in his future?
    Her family stepped right in to help out, as it should be, especially after she had lost her husband. She was really stressing over the finances and maybe having to sale the farm. And even her friends were there for her.
    Will she be able to do this by herself? Or will she have to give up the farm that belonged to Luke and her, to pass on to their children?
    I can’t wait for the next book! ~Autumn~
