Kumme home to Amish country, where a young woman strives to break free of the bondage of fear and find love again.
New York Times 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 many Amish friends.
4 STARS! This Amish romance novel is the second in the Indiana Cousins series. In typical Brunstetter fashion, the characters and storyline are well crafted. Many readers will emphathize with Katie's conflicted feelings. A recipe for banana nut cake is also included.
A Cousins Prayer is a good read. I enjoyed the different cast of characters, each one representing some sort of problem that everyday people experience. I like the way the panic, and anxiety attacks, are brought out in the storyline, and how others can misinterpret things. Wanda E. Brunstetter spins a read that show how everyone can learn something from the Amish with their simple and pleasant life. They share love, duties, commitment, and family, the same way as any other person, but they seem to know how to enjoy life to its fullest. This is a story that will not only bring a smile but warm the heart.
