ABOUT THE BOOK
Will Heidi's cooking lessons turn into life lessons for five unlikely students?
Heidi Troyer cooks up the idea of teaching classes in the art of Amish cuisine in her Holmes County, Ohio, home. But is it a recipe for drama when five very different men and women answer the advertisement?
Join a class of unlikely Ohioans who take cooking lessons at Lyle and Heidi Troyer’s Amish farm. A woman engaged to marry, an expectant mother estranged from her family, a widowed mom seeking to simplify, a Vietnam vet who camps on the Troyer’s farm, and an Amish widower make up the mismatched lot of students.
Class members share details of their disappointing lives, work to solve a mystery, and stir some romance into the pot. Soon Heidi’s cooking lessons turn into life lessons as they each share their challenges...and their souls are healed one meal at a time. Is this what God had in mind when Heidi got the idea for cooking classes?
As an unlikely cast of five characters join the same Amish cooking class, Wanda E. Brunstetter treats her readers to a tasty and heartwarming start to her new series, the Amish Cooking Class. Each character brings different experiences and circumstances to The Seekers, and I enjoyed learning about each of them in the story. From start to finish, it’s a delight to read, and I’m sure it will please any fans of Amish fiction (leaving them simultaneously ready to read the second book, The Blessing, releasing in August, and try out one or two of the deliciously described recipes).
I received a complimentary copy of The Seekers from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review. All the opinions I have expressed are my own.
