Author Wanda E. Brunstetter - Free Book

Today, we're welcoming back an old friend Wanda E. Brunstetter with her second book in this series.

Wanda, what are some of the spiritual themes you like to write about?

Forgiveness, anxiety, prayer, disappointments, contentment, and commitment.

What other books of yours are coming out soon?

Dear to Me, which is Book 3 in my Brides of Webster County series, will be out in March 2008.
Allison’s Journey, which is Book 4 in my Brides of Webster County series, will be out in June 2008.

A Sister’s Hope, which is Book 3 in my Sisters of Holmes County series, will be out in July 2008.

If you could spend an evening with one contemporary person (not a family member of yours), who would it be and why?

I would spend it with my dear Amish friends, Jake and Sara, because they are two of the most loving, spiritual people I know.

How long have you known that you wanted to be novelist?

Since I was in the second grade and wrote a poem about a moth.

What can you tell authors who have been receiving only rejections from publishers?

Don’t give up. Keep writing and honing your work. Read books on the craft of writing, attend writer’s conferences, and ask someone to critique your work before sending it out.

Very good advice. Now tell us about the featured book.

A Sister’s Test
is Book 2 in my Sisters of Holmes County series, and it focuses on Ruth Hostettler. Ruth is the second oldest sister in the Hostettler family, and she has one burning desire—to marry and fill her Amish household with children. Life seems to be falling into place when Martin Gingerich starts to court Ruth and she befriends a motherless child. But Ruth’s dreams are suddenly shattered in one horrific moment, putting her faith to the test.

Wanda, how can readers find you on the Internet?

I haven't had a chance to read any of Wanda's books but love Beverly Lewis and reading about Amish life. It reminds me a little of the Little House on the Prairie books only with more depth to the stories.

Please enter me these sound great.

I love Wanda's books! Have read both of the Sisters books and can't wait for the third one about Martha to come out. Have also read many of her other series and have her Amish cookbook. I love anything Amish and stories of their life and faith.
