I love, love, love the recent rush of Amish books. They remind me of home. Ohio has a considerable Amish community and they were often around our small town or surrounding areas in their buggies, selling at farmers markets, and don't forget the Amish restaurants!!! Due to the stress lately I just felt an intense desire to be "home"... so I picked up the Holmes County Series from Wanda Brunstetter. I've not read anything for adults by her before, but the kids and I enjoyed her "School's out!" for kids.
I have not yet gotten to book 3. It's a grand debate within myself. I like how book 2 ended and so I'm content. However, I love that each book in the series focuses on another sister as opposed to concentrating the entire series on one main character. For me, this means that each book isn't just more of the same, each offers something unique and of value to itself.
Whether I make time for Book 3 A Sister's Hope within the 2 week school break or move on to Maze Runner will have little to do with my enjoyment of the series and more to do with the persuasive speech of my hubby :) He's just finished Maze Runner and the sequel and can't stop chattering about it. Either way, Wanda Brunstetter has joined my minds group of faithful authors that I know I can pick up any book and enjoy the read :)
