Can't get emough! March 1 2007
By Veronica A. Stutler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have read all of the Brides of Lancaster and wish there were more in this series. I felt like I was right there in Lancaster with these characters. I want to cry with the characters when something bad happens or something good happens to them. I love the wholesome feeling these stories give me. I love the amish and cannot wait until Wanda comes out with another book or series to read.

Amish Intrigue!! March 1 2007
By Regina A. Munster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I recommend that you read all of the Brides of Lancaster County series and the Daughters of Lancaster County series. Wanda Brunstetter brings the simple and peaceful way of the Amish to life in her books. A must read for the Amish lover at heart!

predictable read June 9 2007
By Heidi S. Pastore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After reading the Amish series by Beverly Lewis, I was excited to find a new series on the Amish culture. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with this particular book. The story of Rachel Beachy and Silas Swartley is simplistic in its style and predictable. While the central conflict is good, the story churns slowly around its characters and seems to be a better fit for a younger reader. What is most disappointing is its ending, which centers around the death of a young family member. This turn of events is treated superficially and takes away from the emotion of how a loving family would react in such a situation.

Perhaps other books in this series are better, and I am anxious to read another to see. I would not suggest this as an introduction to the series.
Good Christian story but Amish beliefs misrepresentated April 7 2010
By A. Starkey - Published on Amazon.com
I have enjoyed the series "Brides of Lancaster County." However, Brunsetter has overlooked the beliefs of the strick Amish as if she does not understand their true shunning.

Amish shun a member who has left the faith for the "fancy" world. They do this to keep their community "pure" in their beliefs. When one daughter runs away to marry her husband who wants to go "fancy," the family has put their daughter under the shunning. This story is almost preachy in that it keeps bringing up forgiveness and how the family should forgive their daughter and welcome her back into the family. This DOES NOT happen in real Amish families unless the person goes through a period of repentance and agrees to rejoin the church.

The story does touch on the difficulties Amish young adults have during their "courting" where two women may want to court the same man.

If you want to enjoy an inspirational uplifting book, you will be pleased, but don't expect to learn the honest life of the Amish.
