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.
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.
