Lydia's Charm by Wanda Brunstetter

Wanda Brunstetter continues to be a shining star in the Amish fiction genre.  Her gentle style and treatment of the Amish community has introduced so many to the Amish culture, and has captured the imagination of readers everywhere.

Lydia's Charm continues the tradition of good, wholesome fiction.  But don't let the word "wholesome" fool you. Wanda packs a wallop in plot twists, and does not spare her characters pain. Obstacles threaten to overwhelm Lydia and it will require a miracle of love in order for her to bear the tragedies that have visited her and even more to overcome.

Can love conquor all? What will it take to bring healing to Lydia's broken heart?

Read on for more about Wanda Brunstetter and her new book, Lydia's Charm.

A Note From Wanda:

Ever since I was a child, I wanted to be a writer. When I was in the second grade, I wrote my first poem about a moth. Luckily, I received encouragement from my teacher. During my teen years, I wrote skits that my church teen group performed during special holidays.

It wasn’t until 1980, that I took a course on writing for children and teenagers. I became serious about a career as an author. Soon after that, I began to write stories, articles, poems, and devotionals, which appeared in a variety of Christian publications. Later, I had 5 books of puppet/ventriloquist scripts published. *These books are currently available by contacting me. (wanda@wandabrunstetter.com)

My first novel was released by Barbour Publishing’s book club, Heartsong Presents, in Dec. 1997. I have now written nearly fifty books, with over 4 million books in print. Many of the novels I've written are Amish-themed.


Widowed and jobless, Lydia King moves her son and herself to Charm, Ohio, to be close to her mother and help with her grandfather. Menno Troyer, a furniture store owner, is also recently widowed and the father of four energetic boys.

Levi Stutzman, another newcomer to the area, is the only one in his family not handicapped by dwarfism and has dedicated his life to caring for them. As fall colors the countryside, will anonymous gifts left for Lydia bring her hope for a new life and romance, or will another tragedy flood her with infinite despair?

I quite liked "Lydia’s Charm", Wanda Brunstetter is a wonderful author.

The characters were fairly in-depth and likeable for the most part. The one character I might have liked to see a bit more was the grossvadder and the potential for an interesting relationship between him and Josh.

I just posted a review of this on my own site at www.tracysbooknook.com.
