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 many Amish friends.

Editorial Reviews

I have always enjoyed reading books by this author but this was the first time to read one in a six-part serial novel. I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy reading book # 1 and was so looking forward to book #2. As described above this story centers around Meredith and Luke Stoltzfus but the the author intertwines other characters to build on to her story. The author Wanda Brunstetter does not disappoint. I can't wait to read the rest of the story.

I really enjoyed Wanda’s new book Goodbye to Yesterday and I loved the cliffhanger ending! I was really excited to start her new series and I really love how they are releasing one book each month for six months. I think this is a great idea and it gives readers more time with the characters.


Wanda writes in a comfortable, easy-flowing style which I find easy to read. There's more narrative than dialogue or action in this part, but I think that's in order to set the stage - to provide necessary and relevant information to help us better understand the characters and their actions. I thought the narrative was done well.

I definitely recommend this book to those who enjoy inspirational Amish fiction. Just realize that Goodbye to Yesterday is the first of six parts and therefore short. 

Another great book by Wanda Brunstetter just a little different than the norm. So true to life..a young Amish couple faced with so many challenges, so many strains on their marriage.  The chance for a new career since his job lost has put such a strain on their finances, but he must travel  to his uncle's and the weather is not good .  Though it is based on Amish life, this book  fits in with what many Americans are facing today with the economic uncertainty all around us

This was a wonderful heartwarming story wrapped around love and family values. I’m a first-time reader of Ms. Brunstetter and I’m so happy I picked this book up. I’m now a new fan among her legion of many followers.

    Wanda Brunstetter did it again. I couldn't put these books down until I read the last one. I got so caught up in this series, loved her characters and what she did with them. I look forward to your next series.

    The story was good as all her books are, but it didn't need to be done in six books, one would have been enough.

    I remember my first visit to Lancaster County as a little girl and being fascinated by the horse drawn black buggies. As a fan of Little House on the Prairie, it seemed like a place lost in time. Amish books have grown in popularity and I have enjoyed many of Wanda Brunstetter's books, many of them being series books. These novellas were especially unique in that they were very short books that end with a cliff hanger that leads right into the next book. Originally published 6 months apart, I enjoyed being able to read them as one complete novel back to back. I expect that they will probably be released as one complete novel in the future.

    Goodbye to Yesterday is the opening novella that sets up the series. Because of this, it is one of the slower novels. But, it is the one that makes you fall in love with the characters and ties the whole series together. More than any other book in the set, this is the one that made me want to read them all. In this book we are introduced to newlyweds, Luke and Meredith, whose financial struggles are putting a strain on their marriage. Out of desperation, Luke decides to travel to Indiana to take on a new trade that would give him job security. But, during his travels he meets with a disaster that keeps the couple separated for over a year (and 5 more books).

    The novels in the series make for excellent reads but the small books are harder to handle and read plus they are really pricey. My Mother who is 88 had the same complaint. I hope this is the last venture into this format.
