HASH(0x9eee76f0) out of 5 stars WHITE CHRISTMAS PIE is a superb inspirational family drama Sept. 3 2008
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sixteen years may have passed since his widower father Frank dumped him unceremoniously on an Amish couple, but Will Henderson never fully moved beyond his bitterness. Regina and Mark Stoltzus raised Will in love, but the abandonment leaves him filled with anger especially around Christmas time.

His fiancée, Karen Yoder tries to help him come to grips with his biological dad leaving him with the Stoltzus, but fails to reach her beloved Will. Frank never expected years to pass when he left his son behind with friends of his late wife; he needed steady work when he left with plans to come back for Will. An accident leaves Will in dire need as Frank's second wife encourages her remorseful guilt laden husband to see his son.

'WHITE CHRISTMAS PIE is a superb inspirational family drama as the prime cast confront major issues especially abandonment. Fans will find it interesting how each of the prime players feels the impact of the abandonment differently. The Stoltzus feel Frank did the right thing out of love and honored them with the greatest gift he could give them. Frank feels guilt that so depresses him his second wife fears for his well being. Karen knows how much the abandonment hurts the soul of her beloved fiancé, but is unsure of what to do. However, Will makes the tale as the adult remains emotionally battered by the child left behind. Wanda E. Brunstetter provides her fans with a touching tale of who makes up a real family.

HASH(0x9eee7b58) out of 5 stars White Christmas Pie Oct. 1 2008
By Melissa R. Larsen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was a great story, as the Amish stories always are :) Not only did it deal with very human emotions that we all have - regardless of which Church we attend, it was one of those too-good-to-put-down books. Without giving the plot away, there was a part in it that the reader wouldn't have easily guessed, dealing with assumptions we all can make against eachother. The characters were sweet and believable,letting us catch a glimpse into the lives of the Amish, and in the end there was a recipe for White Christmas Pie that I know I will make again and again.

HASH(0x9eee7b7c) out of 5 stars Another Heartwarmer from Wanda! Oct. 1 2008
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wanda Brunstetter has taken us through another heart-warmer (and page turner!) in White Christmas Pie. In this story, we are introduced to Will, a young man about to marry his Amish girlfriend, Karen Yoder. As a young boy, Will's father left him to be looked after by an Amish couple, Mark and Regina Stotlzfus, until he could find a better job. Through a series of misunderstandings and tragic events, Will's father doesn't return and Will is raised by Mark and Regina to become the young Amish man he is today. When an event occurs that reminds him of his abandonment, he is thrown into an emotional tailspin, and the only way to come out of it is for Will to have answers to the questions that have haunted him for most of his life. Will he get the answers he needs, and will they be enough? Will he marry Karen Yoder? Can he move forward, or will he be lost forever in the hurts of his past? I really liked the way all the loose ends were tied up, with a few surprises thrown in at the end that I didn't see coming, but that made the story complete. I don't want to give the story away, you'll have to read it yourself, but I will tell you that for the last three chapters in the book, I was reading through my tears, and I couldn't put the book down and read it in record time. Wanda Brunstetter has deliverd another great story! The recipe at the end was an added bonus!

HASH(0x9eee7f18) out of 5 stars Amish romance suffers from stiff dialogue Sept. 24 2008
By Christina Lockstein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
White Christmas Pie by Wanda Brunstetter is the story of Will Henderson who is engaged to Karen Yoder and living with his adoptive Amish family in Indiana. Will was abandoned by his father when he was six to be cared for by the Stoltzfus family, and he's never been able to shake that anger and fear. As Will and Karen's date approaches, Karen finds herself questioning whether they can be truly married because of Will's jealousy and unpredictable behavior. While Will struggles with his fears, his long-lost father, Frank, has let regret eat him up inside. Only by coming together will they both be made whole, and that will require the hand of God. This isn't one of Brustetter's best novels. Her previous series, The Sisters of Holmes County, was wonderful, filled with suspense and faith. Much of the dialogue in this stand-alone feels stilted and the plot is pretty predictable. I was disappointed, because I expect more from Brunstetter. It's still an enjoyable read, and the recipe for the eponymous ingredient looks wonderful!

HASH(0x9eee903c) out of 5 stars You have GOT to be kidding me March 16 2013
By Charlie Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Warning, this review contains major spoilers! This whole book comes under the heading of "you've got to be kidding me" or, "park you brain at page 1". Let's begin with the idea that a man, Frank, shows up with his 6 year old son Will at the home of total strangers, Mark and Regina Stoltzfus, a few days before Christmas. He's never met these people and all he knows about them is that they were friends of his late wife's mother. Being Amish, they warmly welcomed him and his son into their home and shared Christmas Day with them. Then, we are supposed to believe that the next day he asks these people to keep his son while he is on the road. They agree, he leaves a note for the boy and leaves, but the note is never found. He then conveniently gets into an accident and is in a coma for 2 years so, of course, Will is raised Amish. The story begins around WIll's 22nd birthday, first at his home and then at his father's. Will is engaged to be married but has always been haunted by the disappearnace of his father. However, he is even more haunted by the fact that his father didn't leave him a note. Frank agonizes over the fact that he hasn't seen his son in almost 16 years. He came out of his coma and went to the place where the Stoltzfus family had lived only to find that they had moved and but no one in that community knew where they were. Excuse me, we are talking about an Amish family here. The Amish live in Community and when they move from one place to another they tend to maintain close ties to the friends they've made. They write back and forth all the time. I find it absolutely impossible to believe that no one in that Community knew where they were, after all it had only been 2 years!
What about the people to whom they sold their farm? What about the real estate agent that sold it for them? Frank is English, what about a private detective??? This situation just totally boggles the mind. So he decides that Mark and Regina, who were childless, moved away so they could keep his son. He subsequently marries and has two little girls. However, he spends so much time agonizing over his son that he is, in fact, a poor excuse for a husband and father. Meantime, his son grows up Amish, is baptized, and becomes engaged, all the while agonizing over his missing father. This sets the stage for the story and gets us to page 68. From there to page 183 we are treated to the day to day life of an Amish community and the unbelievably stupid scenario of two people who are engaged and within 2 weeks of their wedding having jealous hissy fits, each believing the other in interested in someone else. On page 183 The father's current wife does what her husband should have done 16 years earlier and puts an ad in The Budget, the Amish newspaper. Within 2 weeks she has located Mark and Regina. She and her husband and family are invited to spend Christmas with Mark adn Regina and to see Will, who wants no part of it. From there to the even more unbelievable ending, it gets even sillier so I will just leave it here and say that this book is definately NOT for (thinking) adults.
