Series: Daughters of Lancaster County
While The Bishops Daughter by Wanda Brunstetter is delightfully sweet, simple, and even borders on the romantic in some of the scenes, the story is nothing new. Oddly, what this reviewer noticed is that all the major characters have nearly identical personalities. True, each has his and her own set of problems, but they all think the same way, act the same way, and even speak the same way with the occasional German word thrown in for the Amish dialogue. Because of the lack of any real contrast between them, character development is sadly minimal. The climax comes more as a relief than a surprise, but even it is not as amazing as anticipated. Since the novel seems to be holding its breath waiting for the revelation of Jimmys past to come to the surface, the reader might expect fireworks; instead, Brunstetter uses an out of place near-death experience to allow the reader to identify the climax.
At places, Brunstetter seems to get lost. She starts teaching her audience about various unrelated topics rather than just telling the story. Dyslexia, alcoholism, and even the German language are all touched on in greater detail than would seem necessary in order to tell this story. In places, it seems as though Brunstetter is speaking directly to any readers who were potential alcoholics, in an effort to try to aid them in a search for sobriety. This, and various other subplots, distract from the main plot and stretch the story much longer than necessary.
The truth is The Bishops Daughter simply drags on for too long. The plot idea is interesting and plausible for a book half the size, but for as long as it currently is, it does not hold up. Women, particularly teenagers and those younger, may find the book enjoyable, but it would not appeal to a general audience. Jennifer Opperman, Christian Book Previews.com
