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.

Sarah's Choice by Wanda E. Brunstetter is the third book in the series, Brides of Lehigh Canal. It is a historical romance that follows Sarah Turner, a widowed mother of three, and her encounters with people she meets while tending the lock on the canal. This includes her meetings with Elias Brooks, who left his job at a newspaper to captain the boat left to him in his grandfather’s will. Sarah must decide who, if anyone, she should marry when her goal is to get her children away from canal life. Will she be able to see past the ugly red birthmark on Elias's face and his new boatman vocation? Will she decide to marry for love or for the opportunity to leave the canal?

The book is told in the third-person narrative style, mainly through the eyes of Sarah and Elias. The relationships described are present but not so strong as to make the plot entirely predictable. This is a crucial element when Elias flees after Sarah's rejection; will Sarah change her mind about Elias or choose the handsome blacksmith who likewise has shown interest? The story mostly centers on the search for a person’s true character. Brunstetter’s theme verse is 1 Samuel 16:7, which says, “The Lord seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart.” The characters of Sarah’s Choice must look past superficial appearances and search for the truth of others’ hearts. Most of the characters, like Sarah, seemed entrenched in their ways; others changed so suddenly it was a shock. The characters weren’t very well developed, and some seemed so concerned with superficial qualities that I began to question their seriousness. Overall, I thought the book was entertaining enough, though not a must-read. The ending wasn’t quite realistic, but Brunstetter wrapped things up nicely. I would recommend this book for more mature women or those looking for some light reading. – Katherine Sozansky, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Editorial Reviews

Sweet and satisfying, Sarah’s Choice is a perfect weekend diversion. Perhaps it’s enough to say that I read this book in its entirety on a rainy Sunday afternoon in front of a warm crackling fire with a nice cup of coffee. Those who have read her books know that Brunstetter’s writing is like comfort food for the soul and Sarah’s Choice was no exception.


A sweet romance from Brunstetter that wraps up nicely and brings us back to characters we've enjoyed in previous books.

Sarah's Choice by Wanda E. Brunstetter is an intriguing historical story that keeps you turning pages. The author has a way of bringing to life the history of the canal and its workers. This is a wonderful book that I truly enjoyed reading.


A sweet romance from Brunstetter that wraps up nicely and brings us back to characters we've enjoyed in previous books.

    This review was written for Sarah's Choice - eBook.
    Sarah was desperate to escape the Lehigh Canal in Pennsylvania. Forced to work the canal path by her father with no money in return, she runs away with Sam Turner and begins her married life in New Jersey. When the couple returns home, tragedy strikes and she is left a widow with three young children. Sarah is left with no choice but to run the lock that used to be Sam's livelihood. Baking bread and washing clothes for the canal men just to make ends meet, she struggles to keep her family afloat.

    Elias Brooks inherits his grandpa's boat and the life that comes with it - a canaler on the Lehigh Canal. Despite his father's disapproval that Elias won't sell the boat, and thinking his grandpa wants him to run coal up and down the canal, Elias begins a life that he only glimpsed as a boy. While unsure of whether he wants to run the boat for the rest of his life, he is sure of one thing: Sarah and her little brood needs someone. Could that someone be him? And can they reconcile the fact that Sarah will never marry a canal man?

    A charming end to a sweet story, and an easy read. As I've said before about this series, this is a book written in simple language yet a great story. It is a great escape from reality, and you feel as if you are a part of the people, the town and the canal itself. I had to hold my breath when it came down to the decision between Patrick and Elias - for one terrible moment I thought she was going to pick the wrong man. A recommended book and series.

    Another wonderful read by Wanda E. Brunstetter. Like the previous two in this series, I couldn't put it down. I hope a fourth one comes out some day.

    I felt as though I was right there with Sarah, even though I reared 2 children and the years were quite different, I still felt the same loss and feelings that it takes to make a home for your children. Never enough hours in the day to complete all tasks, but GOD was always on time every time. Diane Williams.
