it was amazing

The Forgiving Jar by Wanda E. Brunstetter is book two in her The Prayer Jars series. This Amish fiction novel is another in the genre by this author of multiple bestsellers. The novel is part of a series but the author has done a good job of making it a standalone, still there are a few places where a bit more background would have enhanced the story. However, this does not detract from the overall enjoyment of this excellent book.

Sara Murray has just learned that her deceased mother’s parents are members of an Amish community in Pennsylvania. She arrives at her grandparents’ home to find a young lady posing as her. Her grandparents forgive the imposter but Sara is still resentful. Sara’s feelings of betrayal and resentment hinder her relationships with the imposter, her grandparents and her new friend, Brad. Will the bible verses and other inspirational notes she finds in a canning jar help her to forgive and move forward with a positive outlook on life and love?

Brunstetter has written an absolute gem. There are twists worthy of any action-adventure movie, except the excitement is from emotion instead of car chases and explosions. The author is writing from personal knowledge of Amish practices, so the novel is purely authentic.

I give The Forgiving Jar 5 out of 5 stars. It’s a great read for fans of chaste romance and/or religious fiction. If you aren’t a fan of books with religious themes, take a pass on this one.

My thanks to Barbour Publishing, Inc. and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.
