From Wanda Brunstetter:
“I have an Amish cookbook coming out next fall. In need of a few more recipes, I put an ad in an Amish newspaper and the responses flowed in. Some time later, a young Amish woman contacted me with a recipe for ‘White Christmas Pie.’ Neither I nor any of my Amish friends had ever heard of it. Unfortunately, I had long since submitted my book to the publisher. Still, this woman’s story lingered in my mind.
She was a young woman, just recently coming out of illness. I felt horrible that I would not be able to use her recipe, so I contacted her. After learning of her circumstances, I promised to use her recipe….someday.
Based on a story I’d heard, I decided to write about Will, a young man, abandoned by his father, who is raised by an Amish couple, and Karen, the Amish girl he intends to marry—until his tortured past threatens their future together. That’s when the pieces of the puzzle fell together and I knew that I would use the recipe for ‘White Christmas Pie.’”
Will a recipe for “White Christmas Pie” contain the ingredients for Will and Karen’s “happily-ever-after?” Step into Amish country where this endearing holiday romance will captivate your heart and find out.

A relaxing read. Can't wait to try the pie!
I really enjoy the books that have more than one in a series. You feel as if you are part of their family, sharing the love and hardships.

While I did enjoy the story line, it seemed more like a book for juveniles than for adults. This author is a good writer, but perhaps her books should be more appropriately targeted for youth.

If you've read one of Wanda's books, you've read them all. Not worth the time it took.
Ifelt like I was reading a grammer school children's book with one too many Dutch references. My first, and last, book by this author. I really wanted my money back on this book!
