Book Review: A Cousin's Promise

I just finished reading this wonderful book the other day. It is by Wanda E. Brunstetter and it's called A Cousin's Promise, and is the first book in the series Indiana Cousin's. This book is another fabulous book. The Amish are so interesting to me, but these books make me feel that I am right there while everything is happening. The author's writing draws me in and causes me to keep wanting to turn the pages. The bad thing is, I am getting nothing done when I read her work. The good thing is, I am enjoying the books and the time it takes to read them. I definitely recommend this book to everyone out there.

Uhrichsville, OH—A young Indiana Amish woman seeks the desires of her heart in A Cousin’s Promise by Wanda E. Brunstetter. This book, the first in Brunstetter’s new Indiana Cousin’s series, is set to release in March 2009.

When a horrific accident cripples Wayne Lambright, he finds it difficult enough to take care of himself, much less Loraine Miller, his future bride. Will he sacrifice his happiness to give her a better life? Having already been jilted once, Loraine is terrified of yet another rejection. But does she love Wayne enough to marry him, for better or worse? When her old boyfriend Jake Beechy returns from exploring the English world, he hopes Loraine will give him another chance. Will she renew their love or wed Wayne as promised? How will God work to give Loraine the desires of her heart?

Visit Indiana Amish country where a tragic accident and an old beau complicate the lives of two young lovers in Wanda E. Brunstetter’s A Cousin’s Promise.
