Wanda E. Brunstetter: Summer Serial

(June 2013)

Churning out six novels in six months is not for the faint of heart.

Wanda E. Brunstetter should know—that’s exactly what she’s up to this spring and summer. “Because this is a serial novel, my readers can expect each individual book to be shorter than my usual novels. They can also expect a cliffhanger at the end of each of the five books, and an unexpected twist in the sixth book.”

The Discovery: A Lancaster County Saga, published by Barbour Books, kicked off February with Goodbye to Yesterday. The series continued with The Silence of Winter, The Hope of Spring, and The Pieces of Summer—and concludes this summer with A Revelation in Autumn and A Vow for Always.

Wanda has written more than 60 books, spanning multiple genres, from non-fiction to children’s—but writing about Amish life gives Wanda a chance to connect with her origins. “I have had an interest in the Plain life ever since I met my husband, Richard, who grew up in a Mennonite church. Later, when I learned that my great-great-great grandparents were part of the Anabaptist faith, my interest was increased.”

Wanda’s inspiration for her stories comes from personal relationships and experiences. “We have many Amish friends in several communities around the country. I have gotten to know them quite well, and have come to admire their dedication and willingness to continue living a lifestyle as their ancestors did. While my stories are not written about anyone in particular, I often pattern some of the characters from people I know, and/or events I hear about or witness firsthand.”
