New York Times, award-winning author, Wanda E. Brunstetter is one of the founders of the Amish fiction genre. Wanda’s 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.

Richard Brunstetter became interested in photography when he studied with his father-in-law, a professional photographer. After Richard's wife, Wanda, began writing about the Amish, it was only natural that he would use his talent in photography to capture the Amish way of life.
He and Wanda often visit in Amish communities around the country. Richard's love and respect for the Amish way of life is conveyed in his beautiful photographs.

Richard Brunstetter is such a talented photographer. He captures the quilts in such a way you want them all.
I love how they are compiled in this wonderful gift book.
This would make a fantastic gift for all the quilters in your life.
The pictures as well as the inspirational Bible quotes are great but then Richards wife Wanda adds some great Quilting tips.
