The Crow's Call (Amish Greenhouse Mystery #1) by Wanda E. Brunstetter






Mysterious Events Plague a Greenhouse in Pennsylvania’s Amish Country

When Vernon King, his son, and son-in-law are involved in a terrible accident, three women are left to cope with their deaths, as they become the sole providers of the family they have left. The women’s only income must come from the family greenhouse, but someone seems to be trying to force them out of business.

Amy King has just lost her father and brother, and her mother needs her to help run the family’s greenhouse. It doesn’t seem fair to ask her to leave a job she loves, when there is still a sister and brother to help. But Sylvia is also grieving for her husband while left to raise three children, and Henry, just out of school, is saddled with all the jobs his father and older brother used to do. As Amy assumes her new role, she also asks Jared Riehl to put their courtship on hold. When things become even more stressful at the greenhouse, will Amy crumble under the pressure?

My Review




If you read the author’s previous series you will be familiar with a lot of the characters presented here, but this new series can be read on its own.
The book begins with a nightmare, that never ends in this story, when all but one of the men are wiped out with a buggy accident. Their father, brother and brother-in-law, what a tragic, horrific happening.
When the book ends there are a lot of unanswered questions, yes, some are answered, but I was left wondering!
Will Sylvia ever be able to have a life again beyond the security of her mother’s home and having her children in her arms? Will Henry be able to move on and accept responsibility beyond taking on the work of his Dad and brother. Will Amy be able to let herself have a life beyond the Greenhouse, and what of brother Ezekiel, will he continue to live in NY.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
