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.

This is the best book in the series and I gave the other three five stars so what am I to give this one?
I am so glad that Wanda Brunstetter decided to do this series and I hope that she does more like this! Definitely another 5 star book!
I enjoyed this read. It was a quick read for me, not that the book is that long, but I was engaged in the story. I am really looking forward to the next installment in the series A Revelation in Autumn.
Wow this ends with the best cliffhanger of all 4 parts of the series. Still keeps you wanting more.
If I was not so tired I would stay up to read part 5. Still love the story, the characters and I want to know how it all ends now.
The Pieces of Summer is the fourth book in the Discovery series, and one that I had been waiting for, for a while. What I like about these novellas is that they start up right where they leave off, which is very frustrating when you reach the end of one, but starting the next one brings it all back together!
Ms. Brunstetter is a talented author and she knows how to create characters that her readers easily fall in love with while they’re reading along. I’m eager to read the next installment, but I’m also saddened because I know that this book is quickly coming to an end soon. I highly recommend this fourth installment and I can’t wait to continue on my journey with Meredith, Eddie and the rest of the characters in this novel.

The Pieces of Summer is part 4 of 6 in The Discovery saga written by Wanda E Brunstetter. I really enjoy this series. It is so realistic. It is very obvious that God is putting people in Luke and Merediths lives to help them through this time in their lives.

Perfect for a "take along" book. Perfect to just drop in a purse or bag. I really liked the cliff hangers at the end of each book. Left me wanting more. I'd like to see this author, as well as others do this type of series again.
tammycookblogsbooks4 Stars Out Of 5The Pieces Of SummerOctober 15, 2013tammycookblogsbooksIn Bird-In-Hand, PA friends and family have been pitching in to help pregnant Meredith Stolzfus since her husband Luke was killed in a bus accident. With the baby's due date fast approaching Meredith wishes that Luke could be around for their baby. Meredith's childhood friend Jonah Byler regrets never letting her know he was interested in her when they were younger.
Eddie, a patient that came to the hospital in Philadelphia, Pa as a John Doe is no longer in a coma. Susan, his nurse, has been praying for his recovery since he arrived in January. She has also become quite attached to him. Eddie begins to recovery physically but can't recall anything from his past.
This novella seems more slow moving than the first three. The ending will leave you hanging with a little unexpected excitement.
If you have read this series from the beginning you know about Eddie. If you haven't, there are spoilers to follow. As I'm reading I'm trying to figure out how everything is going to work out. As of now, Eddie has no idea that he is Amish. I question how his haircut didn't give it away since most people don't get haircuts like the Amish. I'm sure Wanda Brunstetter has an ending that is not expected because the obvious ending would be that Eddie fully recovers his memory. Which means Meredith and Luke are reunited. But Jonah is falling more in love with Meredith and will probably tell her soon. I can't wait to see how everything works out in the end.
Readers may not like that this is not an entire book. This story is a novella and is meant read to be with the rest of the series. You won't learn much from just reading this novella by itself.

Lois LaneLos AngelesAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Sweet Amish Romance Part 4July 1, 2013Lois LaneLos AngelesAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I remember my first visit to Lancaster County as a little girl and being fascinated by the horse drawn black buggies. As a fan of Little House on the Prairie, it seemed like a place lost in time. Amish books have grown in popularity and I have enjoyed many of Wanda Brunstetter's books, many of them being series books. These novellas were especially unique in that they were very short books that end with a cliff hanger that leads right into the next book. Originally published 6 months apart, I enjoyed being able to read them as one complete novel back to back. I expect that they will probably be released as one complete novel in the future. None of the books works as a stand alone title.
In The Pieces of Summer , Meredith's long time friend, Jonah, steps in to help her out. Though she still holds on tightly to her love for Luke, a special friendship begins to develop with Jonah. Meanwhile Luke awakens in the hospital to be aided by a young nurse, Susan. The friendships with these new characters are developed during this book which ends with the emergency birth of Meredith's baby in a buggy.
