I enjoyed this series of novels. The characters and story lines held my interest. I felt great sympathy for the Storekeeper's Daughter, the poor girl was stuck between a rock and a hard place. The theme woven through the series was very enticing. I don't want to reveal the plot but it was a nice twist, usually not seen in Amish Fiction. The books were easy to read and the religious connotations and lessons were not heavy handed, but they were warm and comforting like a good cut of tea.

What a wonderful book. I could not put it down. I plan to read her other books as well. This book would be great for any age group to read.

I really enjoyed this book. No, I’m not biased because it’s Wanda, who happens to be one of my favorite Amish authors. Seriously, I’m not biased, it’s just that good. Take a typical Amish family with a kid or two at an age where they start thinking about branching out and starting their own family (throw in a couple more down the age line for good measure), add the tragedy of losing Ma unexpectedly, a toss of Dad who can’t seem to express himself in such a way that doesn’t hurt his oldest child and a few other twists and turns. How’s that for a bizarre run on sentence? For good measure toss in another family, English, on the opposite side of the country and have their lives intersect in one of those twists or turns. What you come out with is this amazing start to the Daughter’s of Lancaster Country series. Naomi is the predictable oldest child now tasked with the care of her seven younger siblings, the help at the family store, and the care of the home and garden. She’s predictably overwhelmed and frustrated (especially with the younger sisters who are at the age and close enough in age to constantly bicker). Throw in a Dad who can’t seem to get passed the fact that his love is really gone and can’t find his way to his daughter because he’s comparing her attempts to step up to his late wife. And of course refusing to allow a young man who cares deeply for Naomi, and she cares for him as well, to court because of her responsibilities to the family. When her baby brother is kidnapped it brings the resentments and hurts to the forefront and things are overheard that can’t be taken back. Choices are made from emotion and not logic. Love gets tossed out the window. I fell in love with these characters. Even the ones I wanted to despise I felt their frustrations and pain as well. Especially Naomi’s dad and her English friend Ginny. That west coast English couple? They just made me want to smack them. She was borderline crazy and he was an inept enabler. I thought I’d figured it all out as the story unfolded. But I didn’t. It’s not a completely wrapped up happily ever after. There’s some happy. There’s some ever after. There’s even hope and mended relationships and growth from those in Lancaster county. But it’s not wrapped. It’s not over. There’s no neat little bow. I love that because life doesn’t wrap in 300 and some odd pages. I don’t mind it since this is an older series and I don’t have to wait to read the next book.

We don't know much about the Amish, we being "english", but you learn quickly in Wanda E. Brunstetter's book. Naomi's mother has passed on, and it has become her responsibility to take care of the "kinder". When her baby brother is kidnapped when she is attempting to help a stanger, Naomi becomes irresponsible in her Father's eyes. As the story unfold, Naomi must come to terme=s with what has happened, and try to reconcile herself so that she may find her love and marry. A book to be read by anyone who wants to see the good in all people. Once you start reading, this book will be hard to put down. You will want to read the sequels.
