This book is the 2nd in a 6 part series “Discovery Series”. This
Walking in Grace - Vicky Everitt
I was surprised that I would enjoy reading a book in this format of a six-part serial novel series. The story continues with other characters being added to the story. I can't wait to read the next book in the series. Will Luke survive? Will Meredith find love with another? How will the two nurses lives change in the story. I would recommend this book to all that love to read good Amish Fiction. Again the author doesn't disappoint!
Love My 2 Dogs - Tammy Graham

I have to admit that I am excited that Wanda Brunstetter wrote this series of books and I am hoping that she writes more of these along with her other books. Absolutely another job well done and another five star book!

I love this new series from Wanda and the cliff hangers we are left on–The Silence of Winter is no exception to this. I can’t wait to read the third installment in The Discovery Saga, The Hope of Spring...
GoodReads - Katherine Quirke
I really enjoyed this. I did not realise it is part of a series so will have to backtrack the 1st on. Certainly I am hooked and look forward to the next installment due in a couple of months.

Well constructed so you are easily captivated and can escape into a world that so few of us know about.

Any doubts I had about this series have vanished.  Book 2 introduces many new characters and there is so much more plot line developing.  I was so engaged in the story that any repetition seemed inconsequential.  The author's characters are still very simple people, but life is happening for them in a very big way.  I'm looking forward to Part 3.
Empowering Mommy - Rachael Coe

This series already has me on the edge of my seat waiting for the next book to come out. You will really enjoy these books because of the way Wanda has written them. They are a different take from her usual Amish stories. The books are exciting and realistic and very well written.  No matter what your usual favorite reading is I think anyone would enjoy these stories.
Dyeing to Love - Tonya Speelman

Woohooo I just love this little mini series of Wanda's. She creates such magical places and people, I feel like I am home when reading!
 
 I think it is a really neat idea to have a short little story each month!! Something to look forward to in 2013!
Book, Music, and Life - Carole Jarvis

Let me begin by saying that I am enjoying The Discovery's serial format. Wanda writes in a comfortable, easy-flowing style that pulls me into the narrative, and which lends itself well to this serialization. Each section ends in a cliffhanger, but the rest of the story just moves the action along at a steady pace and lets us get to know the characters better, while identifying with their struggles and pain.
Night Owl Reviews - Diana Coyle
I absolutely love this ongoing series and I’m one of the lucky ones to be able to review these books back-to-back, instead of having to wait for the next monthly release. This enables me to continue on with Meredith and Luke’s saga without any interruptions and I’m really enjoying that this storyline is so emotionally gripping. I love the characters so much that I actually feel as if they’re my friends. This is another installment that I highly recommend!
Reading Room Book Reviews - Patti Chadwick

I am a real fan of Amish fiction, and I am partial to Wanda Brunstetter's books.  This is a wonderful series and this particular book was a fantastic read.  While the plot was heart wrenching, it didn't leave you in despair, but offered healing and hope.  Once again we are left with a cliff hanger that keeps us wanting more!  You will love this series!

4 STARS The Silence of Winter jumps right back into the story. It keeps you wanting to read about these characters. Their are some new ones added to the stories. This one too ends in a cliffhanger. It is a Amish story and a clean read too. Not a stand alone series its one that you will want to read it in order too. Meredith gets the good news she is expecting. Before she has a chance to tell anyone she gets bad news. Meredith is coping with a lot of things right now. Trying to make plans at a time like this is tough. I admit I shed some tears with her too. A old boyfriend stops by to visit at the right time when she is in need. I will be starting book three right away to see what will happen next. I was given this ebook to read and asked to give honest review of it when finished by Netgalley. Published March 1st 2013 by Barbour Books 128 pages ISBN: 1620291436
