Just a Little
It's been awhile since I delved into an Amish fiction. Goodbye to Yesterday by Wanda E Brunstetter was just enough to renew my interest! Goodbye to Yesterday is book 1 of Brunstetter's new Lancaster County Saga series The Discovery. The cover is beautiful and the book is an irregular size which I actually liked. The skinny long style made it perfect for sticking in my purse to read while waiting to pick the kids up from various activities. The book is very short so I had it completed in no time!
Goodbye to Yesterday introduces us to newly married couple Meredith and Luke. While they are early in their marriage they seem to have no shortages of problems. Luke has been out of a job and Meredith suspects she is pregnant. A new opportunity seems promising for the young couple but scary as well. The book leaves us with a cliffhanger only further fueling my desire to read book 2!
I can certainly relate to some of Meredith and Luke's troubles. We've been in scary financial situations several times over the past few years. While Hubby & I are well beyond that honeymoon stage I do remember that initial desire to never argue or quarrel. So much of human nature transcends time, culture, and religious lines.
If you enjoy Amish fiction make sure to check out this lovely piece by Wanda E. Brunstetter. It goes on sale February 5.
I received this book from Handlebar Publishing for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own.
