An Antique Store Becomes a Place of Healing for Broken Hearts
Welcome to Walnut Creek, Ohio, where Orley and Lois Troyer own an
antique store they call “Memory Keepers.” Though knowledgeable in
antiques and their repair, their real talent is in mentoring folks who
are hurting and don’t even know it. Enter Jeff, a restaurateur, and
Rhonda, a hotel manager, who recently moved to Amish country for the
slow pace, but the change of scenery puts even more stress on their
already strained marriage. Will an antique sled be the last straw, or
will it lead to unexpected revelations and the fulfillment of dreams?
About The Author
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 almost 90 books with more than 10
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: www.WandaBrunstetter.com
I enjoyed the Amish couple Orley and Lois Troyer, and the faith they
share with everyone, and if ever a couple needed it, well, the author
gives us a husband and wife that seem to be on the verge of divorce.
see a couple who end up biting off more than they can chew financially,
but they look to all including family, to be living the American dream.
Deep down, they are floundering, and we are along to see how their
relationship seems to fall apart before our eyes.
I loved the
name of the antique shop that the Troyer's own, "Memory Keepers", how
appropriate, and we see how this shop plays a part in the stroy!
this Amish couple be able to help this other non-amish pair? More
important will this couple be able to find the faith they once had,
answers are forthcoming! Also I love that this read has an epilogue!
I received this book through the Publisher Barbour, and was not required to give a positive review.
