4.0 out of 5 stars Fitting end to terrific dramatic series June 18 2008
By Christina Lockstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
A Sister's Hope by Wanda Brunstetter is the third and final book in the Sisters of Holmes County series. Martha Hostettler has been falling in love with Luke Friesen for three years, but ever since the first attack on her family's home, her father Roman has believed Luke to be the culprit. The attacks were at first like troublesome pranks, but accelerated into violent and vicious acts that resulted in the death of Martha's older sister's husband. But Martha is a bit of a rebel in her Amish family. She wants to make a life out of breeding and caring for dogs, and she can't help but think about Luke, but the only way to be with him is to prove his innocence. Martha is the spunkiest and most enjoyable character is this fantastic series. She doensn't want to disobey her parents, but she's not afraid to try new things. Ruth and Grace from the previous two books are back as well and still struggling with crises in their lives. Brunstetter creates a believable villain in the end and uses him to show the type of mercy that the Amish have become famous for. I loved every moment of this series. It was filled with suspense, drama, romance, and faith.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise June 20 2008
By Stacey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Martha Hostettler is a likable young woman with a soft spot for animals and a man named Luke. Luke Friesen is an Amish man whose eye has been captured by Martha. Although he courted one of her sisters, and has worked for (and been fired by) Martha's father, Luke's heart belongs to the young lady whose farm is being frequently attacked by an unknown assailant. Will the sheriff discover who the culprit is? Will Luke find the courage to approach Roman Hostettler to ask permission to court his youngest daughter?

Wanda E. Brunstetter's "A Sister's Hope" was an educational experience for me. Although this is the third installment of the "Sisters of Holmes County" series, I was able to easily follow the story without feeling that I'd missed something important. This was my first time reading one of her books, and I learned a tremendous amount about the Amish that I didn't know before. These characters are fresh and simple, at times making them seem wooden and one-dimensional, but the charm that oozes from the pages of this book make the reader realize that this is because the people being written about are without pretense or hidden agenda. Her writing style is smooth, and she captured my interest with the care she uses to describe the characters and surroundings. I was thoroughly impressed with how Ms. Brunstetter introduced unfamiliar words and cleverly gave their clear meaning without the use of a glossary. I was surprised with some suspense and mystery that I never expected in a book about the Amish. This is not my normal genre, but I will definitely read this author, again!

4.0 out of 5 stars engaging amateur sleuth July 3 2008
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The attacks on her family continue unabated. Her father's business is destroyed due to an arsonist and their cattle gunned down leading to a breakdown by her mother. Upset but resolute Martha Hostettler continues to pray to God for help, but also decides to investigate in order to expose the skunk and hopefully end the assaults.

She hones in on Luke Friesen as the prime suspect, but quickly changes her mind about him because she is attracted to him even as she understands how illogical that is. Still as her belief in the Lord strengthens, she knows she loves Luke and thinks he might love her back, but the increasingly dangerous threat lingers over the Hostettler family. He joins her in an effort to uncover the identity of the culprit destroying his beloved's family while also framing him.

The latest Sisters of Holmes County tale (see SISTER'S SECRET) is an engaging final tale as the mystery that has impacted the Hostettler family is uncovered at a danger to the amateur sleuths. The story line is fun to follow although there are passive debates over who the assailant is. However with the attraction taking a back seat to the mystery fans will appreciate Wanda E. Brunstetter's fine tale of finding love amidst the sleuthing.

3.0 out of 5 stars "A Sister's Hope"...but I had hoped for MORE. Sept. 22 2008
By L. Ricks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Wanda is an awesome writer and I have read and enjoyed nearly all of her writings. I felt a bit let down and disappointed with this series, however. The first book held my interest and the story lines were well established but the repetition and mulling over of the attacks, the rumored attackers, the secret liasons between Martha and Luke, the dog business, etc., etc. became tedious and stagnant by book two, and even more so by book 3. It was apparent early on who the culprit was and I struggled to finish the book. I think these three might have been more successfully accomplished in one volume with more development of the other family members and story lines. A little disappointed , but I will still follow this gifted writer as she shares a lovely and simple faith and life-style of the gentle Amish people.

5.0 out of 5 stars -- April 18 2009
By Christian Review of Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Martha Hostettler's family is being attacked, and she is determined to find out who is the culprit. More and more evidence seems to stack up against her admirer Luke Friesen. How will he be able redeem himself to her, not to mention her father?

With many authors writing about the Amish culture, it is hard to find a book that has a interesting and unique plot. Mrs. Brunstetter has no problem in this book. The air of mystery permeated the pages. I had my own suspicions while reading of who did what and why. I wanted to finish as quickly as possible to find out who the attacker was! The Amish ways are intertwined in the book, avoiding the feelings of being awkward or forced.

Questions raised in the previous Sisters of Holmes books are finally answered in this book. The suspense has been growing throughout the series and has come to a satisfying end. I know readers of the first two books will not be disappointed in the surprising (although slightly abrupt) conclusion.
