Heidi is back as a cooking teacher, giving much more than just cooking lessons. Six students from all walks of life take her class and learn more about themselves than they might about actually cooking. Heidi and her husband are barren and the cooking class allows her an outlet for her talents as she waits on God for direction. Her faith is demonstrated to the class members as she shares wisdom and Scripture each session.
Characters from book 1 are mentioned in the story. Other than Heidi’s storyline, it is possible for a new reader to start the series with this book.
Thanks to Shiloh Run Press for providing me an ARC for a review in my own words.
A group of Englishers and one Amish man come together for an Amish cooking class. Instructor Heidi Troyer suffers from infertility and is taking on the class to help others and distract herself. Like any small group, this one works together to help each other overcome issues. Heidi and her husband Lyle also look on this class as an opportunity to witness to the class. A war veteran, Ron, seems to need the most patience of all.
Brunstetter weaves an interest and almost believable story of the power of friendship and listening. Thanks to Shiloh Run Press for providing me an ARC for a review in my own words.
This is book 1, in novella format, of what I hear is a 6-book series. I generally enjoy Wanda Brunstetter novels, but I am not inclined to read the rest of this series. Although the main characters of Joel Byler and his girlfriend Kristi are believable, modern characters, I think there was too much deceit on the part of Joel for me to want to read more. Of course, I want redemption for him and it will probably come in some future books in the series.
