I enjoyed how the fictional and non-fictional characters interacted. It was an enjoyable historical fiction.
This is the first book that I have read from this author and liked it. It had great descriptions and I felt that I was visualizing what she wrote about in the book.
I was given a copy of this book from Barbour publishing and NetGalley and was under no obligation to post a review. All thoughts are my own.

This is book 3 of a 3 part series of cooking classes by author Wanda E. Brunstetter. I read and reviewed each of the other 2 books. They are all sweet, uplifting books with a purpose and a learning experience for all the characters involved. It was a bit different this time as Amish Heidi, teacher of the cooking classes takes in 2 foster children which inspires her to teach a children's class instead.
Very nice read and with a true Christian spirit. Very enjoyable and light reading. I love all of Wanda's books and this one as well!

This historical fiction is really heartwarming and shows the pioneering spirit of the people in this time period. Also you will see the need for self-sufficiency as they face their many trials, as well as needing the help of others, as well. This was truly a treacherous journey. You won't want to miss this one!

Dear Readers of Christian fiction,
Do you like romance, adventure, history, strong female characters? Here's a book I think you'll love: Phoebe's Light by Suzanne Woods Fisher, releasing on February 6th.
The story is set on Nantucket Island during the peak of its whaling period. Phoebe Starbuck is a young Quaker woman who longs for romance and adventure...and soon she gets exactly what she wants (...and don't we all know to be careful what you wish for!).
If you pre-order Phoebe's Light now, you'll receive four free bonuses! But they're only available for a limited time. Here's what you need to do:
Hope you enjoy reading Phoebe's story as much as I do!
The book is fairly fast paced so there is no time to get bored. It's an interesting book and covers real-life issues.
I enjoyed it and will be reading more from this author.

It's book 8 of the Huckleberry Hill Series and I am still not tired of reading them!
Anna and Felty Helmuth of Bonduel, WI., are not your typical Amish, but you can't help but to love them! Anna and Felty have had lots of success with finding the perfect match for many of their grandchildren. And she has now found her granddaughter's match! At least she feels that this is the case. However, the two parties involved are not too eager to follow through with Anna's plans.
This book encompasses the lives of those in a physically disabled condition in an honest and down-to-earth way. I enjoyed the messages and the strength that came through for the characters. I think that you will enjoy this book, whether or not you have read the previous books.
I recommend this book to those who enjoy Amish fiction.

This new book by Stephen W. Hines, looks at the insights of Laura's life and legacy. The well written book shares not only a bit about prairie life, both the hard, the wonderful and the real, but also some of the things that made Laura "tick", so to speak. It almost felt as though her life was studied and shared her innermost reasons for being who she was. Both the good and maybe not-so perfect Laura, was related and explained.
It was wonderful to read this book, having been such a childhood fan, and to see the social and personal feelings of Laura and how trials of our faith send you in directions you never knew would happen in your life. There are also several pages of pioneer recipes from Laura's associates.
I found the title of chapter 10 somewhat thought provoking. It was "What Laura Means to Us". Laura meant a lot to me as a child and her legacy will outlive that of most of ours. This book shares the history, the social and family networking of those days and I feel by reading this book I have come to understand them. And in some ways would love to relive them. The book depicts some of the cultural shifts which appeared over the passing of time. It's a good book to help us appreciate those who came before us and pioneered in this land and what our lives were built on. Highly recommend this book!
