Wonderful as usual from Wanda Brunstetter
This is the 3rd and final book of the series, "Sisters of Holmes County". I read it in one day. It ties up the series neatly and nothing is left for the reader to question. The mystery is solved, and of course love prevails. Wanda Brunstetter is a great Amish fiction writer. Her books deliver and the pages go quickly as the reader becomes completely enveloped into the Amish way of life. This series is worth a read.
I read an ARC version of this book. I just cannot really get excited to review this book, because I hate to be against it. This is the third book in a series, and really I feel that this is one of the worst series that I have ever read. It was really boring, no answers were given to questions raised until the third book, and the answer wasn't even a satisfying one given all the rest of the plot provided. It was a mystery, but it was just an irritating one that made me just more mad the more events that took place as I turned the next page.
The series descriptions on the individual books always says something about coming join and rest in the peaceful lives of the Amish, but this series is anything but peaceful. A character has a nervous breakdown for goodness sake, and I cannot say that I was not far behind with all of the bad coming and piling on top of it all. Reading all of this was like pulling teeth and I really rather enjoy the entire Biblical book of Job better than this. At least with Job, satisfaction follows.
Through this story in three books, there is about a thousand bad things to go wrong, and maybe three good things happen. This series was my first experience with Wanda Brunstetter, and I hope it won't be my last, I had heard such great things about her books before.
