Book #2: The Silence of Winter

Meredith can’t wait to hear from Luke. . . .

Meredith Stoltzfus longs for the sound of her husband’s voice. She needs to know Luke has arrived safely in Indiana and hear his excitement about a new career opportunity. Most of all she needs reassurance of his love. Financial stress has taken its toll. Surely this new job will be the light at the end of the dark tunnel their young marriage seems to be trapped in. And maybe this call would be a good time to finally share her big news. . . .

But Luke’s call never comes. Instead, Meredith receives news that tears her heart to shreds and leaves her just barely living.

How will Meredith go on?

My Thoughts
Well, my first thought is WOW! I never saw this book going where it went. Luke's trip to his Uncle's in Indiana didn't go anywhere near as expected and it nearly breaks Merrie into a million pieces.
I literally only put my kindle down one time while I was reading this book because it was so wonderfully well written. The only reason I put it down then was because I had to fix the kids lunch and then I could not wait to get back to it. I am however sad that it ended because I don't have the next one to read just yet, so I am left hanging to see what happens next.
I have to admit that I am excited that Wanda Brunstetter wrote this series of books and I am hoping that she writes more of these along with her other books. Absolutely another job well done and another five start book!
