Woman of Courage by Wanda E. Brunstetter A REVIEW

Take a three-thousand mile journey with Amanda Pearson as she leaves the disgrace of a broken engagement and enters the work of a Quaker mission in the western wilds. The trip is fraught with danger, and Amanda is near death before reaching her destination. Among those she meets are an Indian woman who becomes her first convert and a half-Indian trapper who seems to be her biggest critic. But love follows her into the wilderness and will determine the course of her future.

Wanda Brunstetter is an award-winning romance novelist who has led millions of readers to lose their heart in the Amish life. She is the author of over 60 books with more than 7 million copies sold. Many of her books have landed on the top bestseller lists, including the New York Times, USA Today, Publisher's Weekly, CBA, ECPA, and CBD. Wanda is considered one of the founders of the Amish fiction genre, and her work has been covered by national publications, including Time Magazine and USA Today.

Wanda's fascination with the Amish culture developed when she met her husband, Richard, who grew up in a Mennonite church, and whose family has a Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Meeting her new Mennonite sister-in-laws caused Wanda to yearn for the simpler life. In their travels, she and her husband have become close friends with many Amish people across America. Wanda's desire to explore their culture increased when she discovered that her great-great grandparents were part of the Anabaptist faith.

All of Wanda's novels are based on personal research intended to accurately portray the Amish way of life. Many of her books are well-read and trusted by the Amish, who credit her for giving readers a deeper understanding of the people and their customs.

Wanda's primary attraction to the Amish is their desire to live a devout Christian life that strives to honor God, work hard, and maintain close family ties. Whenever she visits her Amish friends, Wanda finds herself drawn to their peaceful lifestyle, sincerity, and close family ties, which is in stark contrast to the chaos and busyness that plagues so many modern "Englishers." Time and time again, Wanda loses her heart in the Amish life, and she hopes her readers will, too. For more information, visit:

  Woman of Courage by Wanda E. Brunstetter is such a fantastic book. It is full of action and adventure with each new chapter. There never was a dull part in this story.
  The characters seem so real and their trials and tribulations  seem to really be happening. I haven’t read many of Wanda’s books, but this one is my favorite by far.
  In Woman of Courage it is a story of heartache, fear, hate, but also such love, warmth and forgiveness. The characters learn that just because one person in a group treats you bad, doesn’t mean the whole group is the same way.
  I’m just surprised at the many things that happen in this book. How one tragedy seems to lead to another, but the characters keep going and they make it through.
  I was quite surprised and pleased at the ending of Woman of Courage. It ended just like I wanted, but didn’t know that it would happen in that way. Really a book that I highly recommend.
