"Brunstetter crafts realistic characters and a storyline that will lift up the reader's spirit." - Leslie L. McKee for Romantic Times« less
My first Brunstetter book - but certainly not my last.
I have read other Amish fiction books by other authors set in this same area. Brunstetter does the best job of using actual locations/shops/restaurants in her writing, a fact I appreciated having visited the area several times. It made it more authentic for me.
