When I had almost given up on Hannah, the author brought me back from the brink of the cliff and moved the story towards closure. This is the third book in this series Kentucky Brothers, so series readers might want to check out the other books, too. Aug 17, Ashley rated it it was amazing. Book 3 in the Kentucky Brothers series. Can a couple rent by grief find renewal?
Timothy Fisher's decision to move his family from their home in Lancaster County Pennsylvania isn't a happy one for his wife, Hannah. Everything she knows is in Lancaster County - her mother - her home - her friends. But what choice does Hannah have? Realizing that her place is with her husband and young daughter, she reluctantly goes but finds her new life is a hard adjustment.
Nothing Timothy does pleases Hannah, and his best laid plans are beginning to crumble before him. Then a tragic accident occurs, further driving a rift in their relationship. Hannah is inconsolable and blames Timothy. Between the stress of his job, dealing with his wife's hostility, and feeling the burden of guilt Timothy can barely cope. Hannah's resentment drives her back to Pennsylvania, where she hopes to find peace and healing for her troubled soul.
Timothy turns to his pillar of strength and pleads with God to restore his marriage. Amid the ashes of grief and struggle, will renewed love, faith and hope emerge? I couldn't put it down! I started it Tuesday afternoon and finished it Thursday afternoon. I love a great book like this! It does have a happy ending. If I say much more than I loved every minute of it I'd spoil it for those of you who haven't read it yet. I hope you'll take time to pick it up and read it, if you've not read any of the Kentucky Brothers series by Wanda Brunstetter I highly recommend it! Sep 25, Michele rated it really liked it.
Thank you to the author for the autographed copy won in her website giveaway. I have been interested in reading Wanda's books for quite some time and was thrilled to now finally have the opportunity to do so. Having once traveled through Lancaster County, Pennsylvania as a teenager, I could picture the setting and envision the people she described in this wonderful story.

The main characters, Timothy and Hannah Fisher, are a young married couple who are struggling to find their way as parents and as partners. Their move to Kentucky turns out to be both a blessing and a curse and threatens to tear their relationship apart. I'll admit I could identify more with how Timothy handles himself in the relationship as he seems to be the calm, levelheaded one. Hannah is immature and a bit selfish in her actions.
We certainly all have our moments where we feel self-pity and want to be selfish putting our own needs first, but she spent a better part of the story only thinking of herself. I did however enjoy all of the supporting characters as they are all quite easy to relate to, even with the difference in culture.
There are some very valuable and important lessons to be learned from this story.
I will let you decide what they are and what they mean to you specifically. But suffice it to say I will be reading more of Wanda E Brunstetter's novels in the near future. Oct 12, Randy Reynolds rated it did not like it. This is, by far, the worst book I have ever read. Wanda Brunstetter should be embarrassed to call herself an author.

Repetition is employed frequently to reiterate the same, tired, old points previously explained. The main tone of the book is set by using boring repetition to keep the reader blatantly aware of the obvious.
The repetition is awfully crass and only serves to pad an already dull story. The author often finds herself repeating herself on several occasions. You get the point. I can't believe this woman has written several other books and is actually praised for the stuff she comes up with. She gives me hope for my unpublished manuscripts that, if she can be an author, then certainly I can do so as well.
I felt nothing during points that should have touched emotional chords in the reader. That's how weak her writing style is. The one redeeming quality I can think of is that it is appropriately named. I wish I could give it 0 stars. Nov 23, Nancy Reynolds rated it really liked it. I do enjoy that Ms. Brunstetter's characters are very human - there are some you like, some you don't.
I like how this book shows that everyone struggles with their faith.
Hannah is a character I feel sympathy for on one hand, but want to slap with the other. I think Ms. Brunstetter's plots are all well-layed out and come together at the end. I also like that Ms. Brunstetter includes recipes at the back of her books. Aug 21, Amy Sullivan wilkinson rated it really liked it. Although this book, was very easy and enjoyable, I found it very interesting to learn about the Amish religion and culture.

Hannah was a spoiled brat and I give credit to her husband for seeing that and dealing with her about the only way he could.

Re:three kentucky tragedies new books for new readers. Famous Kentucky tragedies and trials a collection of important and interesting tragedies and criminal.
Compared to other books written by Ms. Brunstetter, I found this one amatuerishly written with too many "gee golly" types of remarks.
This 3rd in a 3 part series, is the first one I'd read and I have no plans to read the first two. May 10, Cheri Swalwell rated it it was amazing. The Struggle, so aptly named as the last in the "Kentucky Brothers" series.
Mishaps, relocations, accidents are a part of living in the world and the author of this series shows how just because they occur, doesn't mean God can't bring good out of them. Wonderful series — I would recommend getting all three at the same time because you aren't going to want to wait in between. Apr 29, Nancy Granger rated it it was amazing. The conclusion of the Kentucky Brothers series does not disappoint. In fact, it may be the best of the 3 books.
The Amish are not free from the stress, guilt and hostility of the world. But how they deal with it is refreshing, with honestly, and love.
