Wanda’s desire to explore their culture increased when she discovered that her great-great grandparents were part of the Anabaptist faith

I am really loving the Prayer Jar series. Each one that I read has been so unique with a intriguing story line. Each books can be read as a stand a lone, but there is some back ground information that is helpful if you read the first book. This book tugged at my heart strings. The characters are so well crafted and their stories so real. Two women. Who fell alone and feel hurt. They are shown forgiveness and grace from an older Amish couple. Ms. Brunstetter has done a great job weaving in biblical truth. God's grace and forgiveness is given so freely. This story is a great reminder of this. 

Many thanks to the author and Barbour Publishing for allowing me to read a copy of this book. All thoughts are my own.
