Wanda E. Brunstetter is one of my favorite authors! I wouldn't think this book could be any better than what she has written so far. I was wrong ...this novel is an excellent read. Wanda gives us insight into what each character is thinking and feeling. Because this is the first book of a series, questions aren't completely answered in "A Sister's Secret". I look forward to Book Two of the "Sisters of Holmes County" grouping.

As always, Wanda Brunstetter's books are captivating and good reads.
This one is no exception! I love books about the Amish community and have learned a lot from them.

A wonderful book, and it is correct about many places in Holmes County and the Amish there, as I have visited Holmes County numerous times.

This book is a wonderful read, the story line moves along quickly, and it's a page-turner to keep finding out what happens next with every plot twist. And there is a bit of mystery to it as well.

If you want a good read, especially for the upcoming colder months, this is it!!!

This is my first Wanda Brunstetter, although, I have been reading Amish Christian Fiction for a while and enjoying it from Beverly Lewis and Cindy Woodsmall. I couldn't sleep last night, so I decided to start this book, I guess that was around ten or eleven o'clock. Well, that was a mistake, because then I could not stop or go to sleep until I was finished at after five in the morni...more This is my first Wanda Brunstetter, although, I have been reading Amish Christian Fiction for a while and enjoying it from Beverly Lewis and Cindy Woodsmall. I couldn't sleep last night, so I decided to start this book, I guess that was around ten or eleven o'clock. Well, that was a mistake, because then I could not stop or go to sleep until I was finished at after five in the morning!

This is not a book to pick up and have a short quaint read of enjoyment. It states on the inside back flap that Wand a E. Brunstetter writes about the Amish life, because she likes the simple, plain life. Well, if you are using the general description of their lives, sure. But not the lives of these characters. One thing after another happens in this story to the family Hosteller, and you never expect what is next. There is a main secret, which from the first chapter, I was able to guess, but for many many chapters after that she throws things in that make you wonder. Nothing ends up being what you thought, and after tons of page turning trying to find out what happens, the book ends, with only minimal things resolved, and you're left scrambling to get the next book in the series.

Luckily, I checked out both from the library at the same time.

This was a great book! One of those books where you don't want it to end and you just can't wait to read the second one.

I enjoyed this read very much. I have read " A Sister's Test" Book Two and A Sister's Hope" Book Three. In these books the story was interesting but was to long and so often I skimmed over parts. To often the story line was repeated and the last book the story line was boring to me. Like I said, the story was to long.
