The Seekers a book review

I just enjoyed reading Amish Cooking Class, The Seekers, by Wanda E. Brunstetter.

I must say I found it such an enjoyable book.  I am a fan of Amish fiction, and have read many of her books, but I found this one to be especially enjoyable.  Lots of characters seeking a change in their lives, and they find themselves on Lyle and Heidi Troyer's farm, to take cooking lessons in a real Amish kitchen.  Like the quilt series books that Wanda published a few years ago, this book blends different backgrounds of the characters into a very enjoyable story.

This book does contain Bible scripture in each lesson, and it is put forth in a simple format of a recipe card.  The recipes shared in the book sound very good, and are included in the back of the book!

I had trouble putting this book down, and finished it way too quickly!  I found myself eager to see the book unfold, and there was a very good surprise ending to it.  It is a wonderful book based on simple principles, love, and forgiveness.

If you enjoy Amish fiction, this is a wonderful book.  I am hoping Wanda will follow it up with more books in the series!

I am receiving nothing for my opinion, but just hoped to share such an enjoyable read!  There are too  many harsh terrible things going on, and we all need a break from the media and everything out there.  This book is a just plain lovely place to visit and unwind for awhile.

Bravo, Wanda!  Thank you for that!

Hello, Annie, so nice to 'meet' you - thank you for your sweet visit! I love Amish fiction, also, and have read other books by this author that I enjoyed. I have an Amish cookbook, too. I so admire their lifestyle and values. I hope you visit me again. xx Karen
