Product Description

Single father Samuel Fisher of Lancaster County is still grieving over his wife's untimely death when his brother Titus talks him into making a fresh start. Samuel packs up his four kids and heads for the Bluegrass Country. Esther Beiler, who helps watch Samuel's offspring, develops a crush on the widower and a true affection for his children. Can she ever replace his wife, or will that role go to Bonnie Taylor, an English Innkeeper who provides work and witty conversation for the stressed widower? Can an Amish man burdened by yesterday's memories find hope in Kentucky, the land of tomorrow?

Publisher's Description

Now a New York Times and USA Bestseller! Seek a fresh start with Amish widower Samuel Fisher as he journeys from Lancaster County to Bluegrass Country, hoping to find a balm for the grief he’s carried with him. Will this single father, burdened by yesterday’s memories, discover a new and perhaps better life in Kentucky, the land of tomorrow? Esther Beiler, who helps watch Samuel’s children, develops a crush on Samuel and a true affection for his kids. Can she win his heart, or has she already lost it to an English woman? How will God untangle star-crossed lovers when jealousies and misconceptions threaten to tear them apart?

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.

Wanda E. Brunstetter's latest work, The Healing, is about life after loss. Through interwoven plots, it tells the story of a man trying to recover from grief. Though it begins heavily, hope soon arrives with a change of setting.

Distraught from his wife's unexpected death, Samuel Fisher uproots his four children from their community in Pennsylvania and seeks a new life in Kentucky. While he works on building Englisher Bonnie Taylor's bed and breakfast, he hires Esther Beiler to look after his children. In the months that follow, Esther develops a genuine love for the children and eventually feelings for Samuel. But can Samuel's heart ever heal enough to love again?

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds," says Psalm 147:3. With this key verse in mind, Brunstetter sends her audience on a journey to discover where God is in times of grief. Her likeable characters and simple writing style make that journey easy to follow. I found her character's thought processes to be slightly unrealistic, but I would still recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a simple story of beginning again after life deals a harsh setback.

Editorial Reviews

This is a warm and wonderful story of love that is lost, grief that must be endured, lives that must move on, caring and loving that can never afford to wane, and the healing power of prayer, support, friends, family, and one's devotion and faith in God.  Interwoven in Samuel and Esther's story is the continuation of Titus and Suzanne's courtship as Samuel's needs and concerns almost overwhelm their relationship and place some significant pressures on their future life together.  No matter what one's faith practice or belief, these stories set within the Amish context are so very readable, wonderfully entertaining, filled with graceful and loving people, and instructive as to an alternate way of approaching life's dilemmas.  They are the kind of stories we can proudly give to your teens and know that there is still real living involved without the dark and negative approach to problem-solving.  Add in the fact that this author has been engaging the interest of readers for years with over 85 published novels and you have a novel that is well worth the time and effort to read, is instructive and entertaining, and leaves the reader--me, anyway, feeling like I deeply satisfied. 

The second in the Kentucky Brothers series, this book could stand alone.  A family tree is included to help with the characters.  In true Brunstetter fashion, rich details and plausible situations abound.  Though the narrative is somewhat predictable, it is an enjoyable read.

    Even though I live in Central PA and their are many Amish communities, I had not read Amish fiction before. It was a great read. It was a steady read and after the meals in the book I had to make them too. Now I'm reading the 2nd book in this series the Struggle.

    Wanda Brunstetter continues to offer exceptional reads. Can't wait to get the third installment to Kentucky Brothers.

    In this book we learn a lot about the Amish people and their way of living. I found the book worthwhile reading both because of this, and because I found the story interesting and thrilling.
