Grace is the oldest sister in the Hostettler family. Having put her rumschpringe (running around years) behind her, she has returned to Holmes County, joined the Amish church, and begun a new life. For the past four years, everything has been going fairly well, until the day she sees an English man who knows enough of her past to jeopardize her future. Will Gary Walker's passion for Grace destroy more than one life? Amish man Cleon Schrock is planning to marry Grace, but ignorant of her past. Will love and faith triumph over shame and deception in Holmes County? A Sister's Secret is book 1 in the Sister's of Holmes County series. Other books in the series include A Sister's Test: Book 2.
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.
Three sisters, each very different from the other, grapple with life issues as Amish women. This is the premise for Wanda E. Brunstetters latest series, Sisters of Holmes County, the first book being A Sisters Secret.
Grace, the eldest of the sisters, harbors a secret she fears will bring rejection from her father and destroy her upcoming marriage. When an old boyfriend from her rumschpringe days appears in town snooping around for information to supposedly write articles about the Amish, Grace is suspicious. Then a string of vandalism occurs to her family and Grace is convinced her old boyfriend is involved.
Graces younger sisters Ruth and Martha have troubles of their own. Ruth is courted by a young man who is implicated in the vandal acts. Martha, who is trying to establish a dog breeding business, finds that her dogs are mistreated and soon stolen.
It seems that Graces secret has brought only trouble to her family. But when her secret is exposed Graces heart ache has just begun.
Ms. Brunstetter lays the groundwork for the series very well, introducing the characters, and giving the reader an excellent sense of the setting and the Amish culture. Yet, too many plot threads are left unresolved, leaving this reader unsatisfied at the end of book one. Vasthi Acosta, Christian Book Previews.com
