The Gift By Wanda Brunstetter

Follow the heart-wrenching story of Adam Beachy, whose mother walked out on him and his family—and away from the Amish faith. Now he balks at the idea of ever marrying and having a family of his own. But when tragedy strikes, Adam is suddenly a father figure to his three nieces and finds himself needing a wife. Despite their differences over her practice of reflexology, Leah Mast seems the best option to fill that role. Can they make it work in a modern-day marriage of convenience?

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 over 60 books with more than 7 million copies sold. Many of her books have landed on the top bestseller lists, including the New York Times, USA Today, Publisher's Weekly, CBA, ECPA, 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 Magazine and USA Today.

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.

This is not your same ole same ole Amish Fiction book. I have read every Amish Book by reputable Amish Fiction authors and I have to say this is new, an Amish mother and wife working away from her husband and two kids.
I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading waiting to see what was going to happen next only to come to the end of the book wanting more and Wanda did not tell us how it all ends. I have to wait for the next book in the series, I don't know how I am suppose to wait the one out. I am dying to know what happens.
I will tell you this the queen  of Amish fiction has out done herself this time.
I gave this book 5 stars two times, I recommend you getting this whole series.
I was givenbook by the publisher for my honest review.
