Author Bio

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 several Amish friends.

Wanda E. Brunstetter’s A Sister’s Hope, the third book in her Sisters of Holmes County series, continues with the story of the Hostettler sisters and their experiences as an Amish family being victimized by an unknown saboteur. In A Sister’s Hope, the focus is on the ordeals that Martha faces, dealing with fear, speculation, love, and faith.

The Hostettler family members have been suffering from mysterious attacks for two years, and their entire lives have been set on edge. Every few weeks, another attack leads the Hostettler family to question its faith. It is easy to follow the progression of the Hostettlers’ stories as Brunstetter draws the reader in, sharing the thoughts of the characters when they make decisions and analyze situations. As they try to figure out who is responsible for the attacks against their family, the list of suspects keeps growing.

Martha, the youngest Hostettler sister, faces many obstacles as she tries to make sense of the ongoing vandalism, while still trying to get her breeding business up and running. Martha is worried that the stress of the attacks will have lasting effects on her mother and the suspicion of Luke’s involvement in them will prevent her father from seeing that Luke is innocent. With Martha’s family, breeding business, and future happiness all hanging in the balance, she struggles to discover the attacker’s identity and bring the attacks against her family to an end.

Suspense builds as Martha begins to investigate the attacks on her own, putting her life at risk for the sake of her family. Her sisters, Grace and Ruth, have already experienced losses due to the attacks: Grace’s house was burned and Ruth’s husband was killed in an “accident.” What other sacrifices will have to be made before the suspect is found? Will Martha’s family ever discover the reason behind the attacks?

Wanda E. Brunstetter does a good job of wrapping up loose ends created in the first two books, answering questions that have been in place since the beginning. Will Grace get to keep her daughter Anna? Will Ruth be able to cope with marrying Abe so soon after losing Martin? Will Luke be able to prove that he had nothing to do with the attacks? Hebrews 11:1 gives a good description of the faith that Martha and her family must have, in that “faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” They need to trust that God will protect them, no matter what happens.

I really enjoyed reading A Sister’s Hope and learning more about the Amish culture. Wanda E. Brunstetter’s style of writing is easy to follow and keeps the reader engaged in the story. Younger women will be able to relate to the struggles that the Hostettler sisters face, and older women will enjoy a well told story about the trials of a traditional Amish family. Nicole E.

    Read the whole series and enjoyed it immensely. The fact that you didn't find out to the last book who was doing the attacks kept it suspenseful.I liked how each book was about a different sister. I liked that the fathers estranged sister came home and forgiveness was shown also that it showed things may not always be the way they seem.

    This is the last of a series and it is hard to put down. The author keeps you guessing until the end. I read it before and wanted to buy it for my daughter-in-law.
