    Back Cover Blurb:

    In an area of Pennsylvania called The Big Valley, a uniquely blended Amish community thrives in which three distinct groups of Amish identify themselves by the color of their buggy's top white, black or yellow and three young women search for faith and love.

    Wanda, Jean and Richelle Brunstetter have teamed up for another novella collection!

    Included in this book are:

    * Deanna's Determination by Wanda Brunstetter

    * Rose Mary's Resolve by Jean Brunstetter

    * Leila's Longing by Richelle Brunstetter

    I was especially looking forward to reading another novella from granddaughter Richelle and it did not disappoint! I thought Leila was an interesting character. Though she feels her struggles are unique and a burden, they mirror anyone's trying to find their way in life and follow God's plan. I enjoyed the sweet friendships Leila made at a time in her life when she needed them most. I'd never read a story about an Amish girl who was allowed to sell her artwork, and this was a great change of pace!

    Fans of Amish fiction will really enjoy this collection!

    Even more books will release in the coming months from the Brunstetter family. First up is The Healing Jar, the conclusion to Wanda's series The Prayer Jars. This will release on August 1. Then, in November, the trio returns for Amish Front Porch Stories: 18 Short Tales of Simple Faith and Wisdom. Visit www.christianbook.com for details!

    The Brides of the Big Valley is available NOW!

    Review of The Brides of Big Valley

    The Brides of Big Valley is a set of 3 novellas written by Wanda Brunstetter, her daughter-in-law, and her granddaughter. Each story relates to each other, but has unique characteristics in that each is set in a different distinct Amish community within Big Valley. Each story ends with a bonus recipe, too. They are all romances, each with a different twist. If you like Amish fiction, this won't disappoint you. You will learn about different groups of Amish and you will see how those differences impact the people. The stories are stories of faith, family, and love. They are truly enjoyable.

    THE BRIDES OF THE BIG VALLEY has three wonderful, uniquely written romances from the Amish Community, and written by three wonderful authors. Wanda E. Brunstetter, Jean Brunstetter, and Richelle Brunstetter. I love their books, and reading about the Amish people.

    The story of DEANNA'S DETERMINATION, started out in, Belleville, Pennsylvania, where she and her family belong to the white-top community, had a table set up at the flea market. Deanna Speicher had lost her husband, Simon, and then, a month later lost her mother and now she was having to raise her son mostly on her own. Deanna's dad was devastated, so she sold her house and moved in with her dad. Then her good friend Elmer Yoder helped out from time to time while Deanna suffered through the loss of her husband.

    As the story developed, Elmer began to see Deanna more. But one day something happened to change all that. Will Deanna ever be happy again? This story will bring you to tears. I know it did me. I had to think about this story for a while before I went on to the second one, because I was so overwhelmed from the sadness, the deep abiding love, and devotion. Wonderful story.

    ROSE MARY'S RESOLVE, opened in Belleville, Pennsylvania, at Rose Mary Renno's father's furniture shop, which is in the black-top community. Today was the day she would start training with her sister, Linda. Rose Mary had been dating Tom Yoder, when suddenly, this young English pilot, by the name of Kevin Presley, had to land his plane in their large field. Rose Mary was completely taken aback by his good looks. While Kevin recuperated from the harsh landing, and getting the plane checked out for damage, he and Rose Mary became good friends. Will their friendship develop into something more than friendship? Will Rose Mary fall for this English guy and follow her heart? Or will she follow her faith? A story that will strike the inmost thoughts or feelings of your heart. Awesome read!

    Our next story, LEILA'S LONGING, opened up with Leila Fisher, from the yellow-top community, after getting her younger brother Henry off to school, she then hurried off to the family shop. Hopefully, since her mother has to take time off from work for a while, Leila will be able to deal with the customers. Although her shy ways may slow her down a bit from getting to know people. Will she be able to do it? Or will she need help? Leila's mother wanted Leila to get out and socialize and perhaps meet a young man. But every time she tried to talk to someone her stuttering acted up. So Leila's other brother, Leon talked to her about a singing event. After some thought, Leila decided to go. Will she meet a young man? If so, will the two hit it off, or will her shy ways and stuttering stand in her way? A great read!

    This was an interesting collection of stories. How fun that it was written by three generations of storytellers in the same family! All of the stories were interesting and captured my attention. This would be a great book to take to the beach or camping this summer!!!

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. I'm always happy to review books, and these are my own opinions.
