The Struggle by Wanda Brunstetter

This Book was supplied to me by Barbour Publishing through NetGalley for a review in return.

Book Description

Welcome back to Kentucky, where an Amish couple from Lancaster County seeks a new future in the land of tomorrow. When Timothy Fisher decides to move his wife, Hannah, and daughter Mindy to Christian County, where two of his brothers now reside, Hannah is very reluctant to go. Will the new home Timothy builds for them there do anything to lift her spirits? When a tragic accident occurs, Timothy and Hannah are inconsolable. Is an abrupt separation the beginning of the end of their marriage, or will they rally to seize a God-given second chance?

My Review

This book is the 3rd book in the Kentucky Brothers Series by Wanda Brunstetter. I love Wanda’s writing, she is one of the best authors who write on Amish Fiction.

This book begins when Timothy Fisher decides to move his family (himself, Hannah and daughter Mindy) to Kentucky from Pennsylvania, I believe it is in Paradise, Pennsylvania. Hannah is reluctant about moving because she is so close to her Mamm and Timothy thinks this is ruining his marriage. Of course, Mindy is so little, it doesn’t matter to her. Hannah has issues when they arrive in Kentucky and because she doesn’t like it in Kentucky, this causes a strain on their marriage. Actually, in places I wanted to kick her down the dirt road. I feel like she is the one to blame for her and Timothy’s marriage problems.

As life goes on for them Hannah learns to like it in Kentucky and then tragedy strikes. After a while, she leaves and goes to Pennsylvania and stays with her parents. But, she finally returns to Kentucky and then there is an accident. I won’t go any further, but I would suggest this book to all my friends and family. Wanda has another GREAT book and you need to pick it up. You will not be sorry.

Thank you Barbour Publishing, for giving me the opportunity to read this book and give this review.
