Now a New York Times and USA Today Besteller! Discover along with Titus Fisher how life can begin anew in Christian County, Kentucky. Moving from Pennsylvania, finding rewarding work, and leaving a broken romance behind is the best decision Titus ever made. But is he ready to consider love again when he meets two women: one who seems perfectly suited for any Amish man and one who challenges long held ideas of the woman’s role. Who will Titus choose, and will it be the right choice?
Wandas ancestors were part of the Anabaptist faith, and her novels are based on personal research intended to accurately portray the Amish way of life. Her books are well-read and trusted by many Amish, who credit her for giving readers a deeper understanding of the people and their customs.
When Wanda visits her Amish friends, she finds herself drawn to their peaceful lifestyle, sincerity, and close family ties. Wanda enjoys photography, ventriloquism, gardening, bird-watching, beachcombing, and spending time with her family. She and her husband, Richard, have been blessed with two grown children, six grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.

I also loved the ending. I won't give it away, but I will say it leaves you wanting more, waiting for the next book, but without being upset the author cut off at such a point. Still, I will be reading the next book in the series, The Healing, (and maybe if I am lucky I can do an advance review!)
I greatly enjoyed this novel and found their ways of relating to be heart-warming and inspirational. My own family has a very strong faith base, but whether or not that is the case with readers, there are still wonderful scenes in this book to be encountered and genuine people to meet. While it is fiction, it very accurately reflects the way families and individuals resolve their questions, problems, and challenges. And like all of us, Titus learns that he has the capability to make choices that will insure a measure of happiness for him and any future family he may have.
This is really an old-fashioned love story and I hope you all will read it soon.
nkwbookreviewer5 Stars Out Of 5Great Journey to Kentucky Amish with TitusApril 29, 2017nkwbookreviewerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Journey is book one in author Wanda Brunstetters series Kentucky Brothers. It is a 386 page paperback book. This is a spin-off of her Daughters of Lancaster County series. Some of the characters and things discussed will be familiar if you have read that series. If you haven't, you can still read this book without any problems.
This is the tale of Titus Fisher, a 22 year-old Amish man who still lives with his parents in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Timothy is his twin brother. Titus is broken hearted when girlfriend, Phoebe, decides to live among the Englisch and move to California. An opportunity is presented to him to move to the Amish community in Kentucky and he takes it. A change of scenery might help his broken heart.
In Kentucky Titus meets Suzanne. She looks almost identical to Phoebe, the girl he came to Kentucky to forget. Most Amish women her age are already married and know how to clean, cook, sew, and yard care of a house. Not Suzanne. At twenty two she would rather be outside than inside doing woman's work. She lives at home, has never had a boyfriend, and has settled into being single.
I enjoyed this emotionally charged story. It is one of my favorites that author Brunstetter has written. The characters are well defined and likable. They hurt and rejoice like everyone does. It doesn't take long to get invested in this book. There is humor, romance, hope, heartache, redemption, encouragement, and inspiration. It discusses friend and family relations, and it broaches the subject of not fitting in the normal mold.
The author has a way of transporting me to the Amish Community for a few days. The characters become friends and I want to learn what is going on in their lives. I love her use of Pennsylvania Dutch mixed into the dialogue. She has a pleasant writing style.
I would highly recommend this book. It gets a 5 star rating from me.

It left room to want to begin reading books #2. I will certainly pass it on to my sister to read.
