I have read a lot of books about the Amish but this is one of the best I have enjoyed. I try and read them according to the Series ao I would recommend that you read the 1st in the Series, then you get the full story.

Whereas the amish family traditions were surprisingly lacking in this series, it was more gripping than the first book! I am disappointed in the author

I normally like Wanda B. but, frankly, I'm so disappointed in this book. There are Amish inaccuracies and the conversation is so unreal that I cringe reading it. It really seems like this was tossed together with a predictable, cookie-cutter storyline that is completely unoriginal. Has one of the mistresses of Amish fiction become such a machine that the joy of writing has left the process? I sure hope not. I don't know if I'll finish it...

For long time fans of Amish fiction, its easy to see why Wanda Brunstetter is a New York Times best selling author and considered a "founder" of this genre. With close to 50 books and over 5 million copies sold, Wanda has definitely captured the hearts of her readers. The Healing is the second book in the Kentucky Brothers series and continues the story of Samuel Fisher who has recently lost his wife. Left alone to raise his children, Samuel is emotionally numb, overcome with grief and basically going through the motions. He distances himself from his children and his family around him and seems to be intent on pushing away those that love him and want to help him. Samuel is so caught up with his own loss, that he doesn't recognize his children are grieving too. Samuel's brother, Titus Fisher, takes in Samuel and his children with the hopes of giving them all a fresh start. However, Titus's good intentions quickly begin to go awry and the complications of taking in family start to strain Titus's relationship with his fiance'. This book has many characters from the previous book, so I do suggest reading the series in order if you want to have a good understanding of the family history and dynamics. Overall, this is a book about the struggles families face when they experience the tragedy of losing a loved one and how everyone processes grief differently. The third book in this series (The Struggle) is due out fall of 2012.
