The Seekers


Wanda Brunstetter is at it again, with her newest series "Amish Cooking class book 1 The Seekers".

In life, there's no such thing as having enough friends, especially when they are good ones! Follow Wanda to Sugar Creek, Ohio, where you'll meet some people you'll love - hopefully as much as I did. Two people from this story particularly captured my heart, but I won't give away anymore than that. You'll just have to read and find out! So find a cozy and comfortable place to read, because one you start this tory and you meet Heidi Tryoer, you wont want to stop.

Heidi decides to begin teaching Amish cooking classes out of her home, just as her aunt taught quilting classes. Heidi hopes to fill the emptiness she fills, and starts to think God may have different plans for her life. What she didn't anticipate was that she would meet so many incredible people who would touch her life and fill her with more joy and blessings than she ever dreamed.

This story effortlessly captures the heart, with characters Wanda so beautifully brings to life. She beautifully shows each person's life affected just by taking Heidi's class, and in turn, how they affect her. Along with his touch story, the recipes from Heidi's class can be found in the back of the book. I had the pleasure of making the German pizza one night for my family who absolutely loved it! It's my new go to recipe when I am not sure what to make. Thank you, Wanda for adding these to the book, it brings the story that much more to life.


I was given copy of this book from NetGalley for my review which I have given.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR


Wanda Brunstetter is an award-winning romance novelist who has led millions of readers to lose their heart in the Amish life. She is the author of nearly 70 books with more than 9 million copies sold. Many of her books have landed on the top bestseller lists, including the New York TimesPublisher’s WeeklyUSA TodayCBAECPA, and CBD. Wanda is considered one of the founders of the Amish fiction genre, and her work has been covered by national publications, including Time MagazineUSA TodayNewsweekGood Housekeeping, andCountry Woman. Wanda’s books have been translated into four foreign languages.
Wanda’s fascination with the Amish culture developed when she met her husband, Richard, who grew up in a Mennonite church, and whose family has a Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Meeting her new Mennonite sister-in-laws caused Wanda to yearn for the simpler life. In their travels, she and her husband have become close friends with many Amish people across America. Wanda’s desire to explore their culture increased when she discovered that her great-great grandparents were part of the Anabaptist faith.
All of Wanda’s novels are based on personal research intended to accurately portray the Amish way of life. Many of her books are well-read and trusted by the Amish, who credit her for giving readers a deeper understanding of the people and their customs.
Wanda’s primary attraction to the Amish is their desire to live a devout Christian life that strives to honor God, work hard, and maintain close family ties. Whenever she visits her Amish friends, Wanda finds herself drawn to their peaceful lifestyle, sincerity, and close family ties, which is in stark contrast to the chaos and busyness that plagues so many modern “Englishers.” Time and time again, Wanda loses her heart in the Amish life, and she hopes her readers will, too.
