My first by Wanda Brunstetter

I heard about this author of all places in the Wall Street Journal. I'd read another Amish Story, "Levi's Will" by W Dale Cramer and really enhoyed it. Plus the Amish have moved into my home area os southern Iowa and I find the Amish interesting. So, I thought I'd give the author a chance. It is a nice story, a make you feel good kind of story which is what it si supposed to do. It was easy to keep listening. I'm sure I'll listen to anouther by this author at some point.

Serenity of Amish Country

I grew up in rural Kentucky, and since leaving there and following my army husband all over the world and finally ending up in Alabama, I was surprised to learn that the Amish have settled in my home state, very near the little town where I grew up. For many, many years now, I have been fascinated by the lifestyle of these quiet, unassuming people. When we go home to Kentucky, we visit the Amish, we buy their handmade baskets, which put Longaberger baskets to shame. Each time we go, another of the tiny Yoders has learned to weave baskets and has printed their name and year on the bottom of the basket that we buy. There's a deep peace on their faces, an assuredness that we, "English" just can't quite capture in our busy lives. The Storekeeper's Daughter is the first book I've read or listened to about the Amish, and it was sweet and good. And I needed it. It gave me a window into the world of the Amish, and it also bonded me with them, as I, too, am a Christian. The Bible verses quoted in this book are balm to my soul.

Predictable but still enjoyed the story.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Left me with questions until I read summary of other books in series and it looks like the story continues.

Which character – as performed by Christina Moore – was your favorite?

Frannie

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I would watch on TV
