I read this on the kindle

I got this as a 4-1 book series & each book is about a possible want to be bride

This does go over a generation in that some of the people in one book it their children in the 3rd & 4th book

I enjoyed the book & i had read this omnibus version in book format some years ago
I should have wrote this review sooner, all the details of these four books mushed together. I think I liked the first one a lot, wasn't as excited about the second one, but maybe that is backwards. I quite enjoyed the third, while losing interest in the Amish way of life. Maybe children who don't make noise in public isn't worth not being about to question my parents' and in laws' authority as an adult. I'm grateful to be apart of a religion that believes in being in the world but not of the wo...more

This is one of the books from our church library.
I recently took over as the head librarian and have challenged myself to read a variety of books that we have in our collection so that I am able to make recommendations to our members. This is one of the most recent books I have read.
It is actually 4 books in 1. Each one is tied to the previous story but usually involves the next generation of characters. I enjoyed reading the stories but found them a bit predictable and some what repetitive. I...more

I loved all these books (maybe not the third so much) and got a lot out of them. I enjoyed learning more about the Amish culture as well. Some of the things made me mad, or annoyed. And some of the things made me cry. But mostly I couldn't put the books down, and was really glad that I read them! I also enjoy how they are all intertwined and when you read through the books you get updates about previous characters throughout. This author is not afraid of writin...more

I love this book. All the books I have read by Wanda shows the reader how to walk by faith, to trust in the Lord. Just remember while reading her Amish stories, not all account of their life is accurate. Have a blessed day!
I really enjoy reading about the Amish life. This was really 4 books in one, and I really liked how each story intertwined the characters from other stories, so that you were able to hear about "their" life too!
Enjoying this book. almost done. I've learned alot about the Amish and alot about my self...

I really enjoyed this book. I learned a lot about the Amish culture and was encouraged in my own walk with Christ.

Four short Amish stories for the price of one! Each story gives you something to think about and a belief that the leading character can reach for the stars,

Recommends it for: everyone
easy read. I loved all 4 books and love Wanda brunstetter!!!!. I learned that God is always with us through bitterness, lose and much more.
Interesting subject line about life among the Amish, and the writing is geared to the early teen set without violence, sex, or raunchy material.

A good book but as most books about the Amish community you can tell how it's going to end.

I love Amish fiction because of how community-oriented they are; these novels are great.
Four great stories, that span 4 generations of one family. A definite must read.
