The Journey and The Healing: A Duo Book Review

About The Journey:

Now a New York Times and USA Today Besteller! Discover along with Titus Fisher how life can begin anew in Christian County, Kentucky. Moving from Pennsylvania, finding rewarding work, and leaving a broken romance behind is the best decision Titus ever made. But is he ready to consider love again when he meets two women: one who seems perfectly suited for any Amish man and one who challenges long held ideas of the woman’s role. Who will Titus choose, and will it be the right choice?

About The Healing:

Seek a fresh start with Amish widower Samuel Fisher as he journeys from Lancaster County to Bluegrass Country, hoping to find a balm for the grief he’s carried with him. Will this single father, burdened by yesterday’s memories, discover a new and perhaps better life in Kentucky, the land of tomorrow? Esther Beiler, who helps watch Samuel’s children, develops a crush on Samuel and a true affection for his kids. Can she win his heart, or has she already lost it to an English woman? How will God untangle star-crossed lovers when jealousies and misconceptions threaten to tear them apart?

About The Author:

Award-winning, bestselling author, Wanda E. Brunstetter became fascinated with the Amish way of life when she first visited her husband's Mennonite relatives living in Pennsylvania. Wanda and her husband, Richard, live in Washington State but take every opportunity to visit Amish settlements throughout the States, where they have several Amish friends.

My Review:

Wanda Brunstetter is one of my all time Amish Fiction authors. I have read many of her books (too many to count) and was very excited when I heard about her new series, The Kentucky Brothers. I was so not disappointed!

Both books bring you back to a simpler time, right in the heart of Amish country living. With wonderfully developed characters, amazing story lines, the themes of family and God's hand on our lives always,  and the gospel message prevelant throughout, if you are a fan of Amish fiction, you will be delighted with both The Journey and The Healing. And I cannot wait for the next book, due out Spring 2012 (a long wait, but if her other books are any indication, it will be well worth the wait to be sure!)

Both books were very quick reads, in fact, I read both in one weekend, I just could not put them down. Lucky for me, I had a very understanding husband and children who cooperated well at bedtime:)

I cannot recommend these books highly enough and give them a HUGE thumbs up!

BUY IT: You can purchase both The Journey and The Healing at your favorite bookseller from Barbour Books
