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 almost 90 books with more than 10 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.

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. For more information, visit:

  1. Great review. I can't wait to get this cookbook and try some of the great recipes, just in time for the holidays!

  2. I love Wanda’s books. I’ve read a lot of them. I need to pick this up.

  3. Can't think of anything better than combining an awesome author with delicious recipes - two of my great loves.

    Wanda Brunstetter was the first author when I serious got back to reading as an adult and the writer of the first Amish books I'd ever read. Needless to say, because of her the Amish genre is one of my very favorites to read.

    We enjoy our now many trips into Amish areas and one of the best things about our trips there is the magnificent food we get to consume. With my love of being in the kitchen concocting something so I can share and my enjoyment of cookbooks, the "Amish Friends Baking Cookbook" is right up my alley and a book most definitely on my TBR list.

    I would be in cooking heaven if I were fortunate enough to receive this wonderful book - both for content and by who the author is. I can just imagine all the goodies I could make starting with the upcoming holiday seasons and how many folks would be delighted when I share the end results. Sharing but oh so hoping to be the very fortunate one selected. Thanks for the chance!
