I looked forward to reading this book since I, too, am an animal lover and "have a way with them". I must say, though, that I was disappointed in the book. I got bored halfway through and skimmed the rest to the end. This was my first Brunstetter book and will probably be my last. The writing style is simply too repititous and juvenile.

Melinda often pour her love into caring for hurt and orphaned animals and sketching the wild deer that live in the woods behind her farm. Unfortunately these things often get her into trouble with her mom and dad who feel that she shirks her duties so she can "tend to her critters." Gabe Swarts loves Melinda and wants to make her his wife, but even he has a hard time understanding why she sometimes seems to prefer the company of her animal friends to him. Worlds collide when Melinda delivers an ultimatum: Gabe must agree to give up hunting, a hobby he loves and believes to be useful, or she won't marry him. Will Melinda and Gabe be able to overcome their differences, or will they end up losing their chance for love and marriage?

Beautiful Gift book.
Nineteen year old Melinda and Gabe want to be married but Melinda loves to rescue and rehabilitate God's wild animals. She is considering going to veterinary assistant or Vet school.Being that Both are Amish and are baptized they can not leave the community without being shunned. She tries to get Gabe to leave with her and he flatly says no. Both go through a lot of problems of their own doing before they can decide to get married. Melissa takes the GED and fails.The Amish have only 8 years of school. Her parents find this out from other people, but leave her to make her own decision.Melinda is plagued by doubts would she fit in the English world.Is that where God wants her to be. I loved this book because it shows a lot of choices that Amish young people have to make about their lives. The Amish is a strict culture. But I have Known many Amish and I believe that most do well to stay within their culture.They are not prepared for the fast pace and evil of the outside world. I could not put this book down until I Finished it. I have read books 1 and 2 in this series and both were excellent.

I really wanted to like this book since I, too, "have a way with animals" but the writing style was immature and if she said something once, she said it a hundred times over. It was so annoying I could not finish reading this book. I wound up scanning it thru the end and called it done. This was my first Brunstetter book and absolutely my last.

Loved the novel as with all the Brides of Webster County books. Sensative, moral, everyday struggles that get solved with the love of the Lord as with all the Brunstetter books and the Beverly Lewis sagas. Highly recommend these books as an easy read and hard to put down.

I enjoyed reading Brides of Webster County, Book 3. I have not found a book written by Wanda Brunstetter that I have not liked to read.

A quick read a very touching story... Melinda already baptized into the church, is confused in what she wants to do... She does have the opportunity and encouragement to continue with her education to become a vet or a vet assistant, so she can take better care of the animals that are dear to her... To do this she would have to leave the Amish faith and be shunned by all she loves... Her family, friends, and her finance. dg
