Book Review: The Hope Jar by Wanda E. Brunstetter!

The Hope Jar (The Prayer Jars #1)About: A Brand-New 3-Book Series from New York Times Bestselling Author Wanda E. Brunstetter.
What happens when making an elderly Amish couple very happy means going along with a lie that gets bigger by the day?

Michelle Taylor is not who her new family in Lancaster County believes her to be. The Lapps were looking for their long-lost granddaughter when they met Michelle and she assumed the identity of Sara Murray. Once homeless and hopeless, Michelle has come to love her new Amish friends and even considers the idea of romance among them.

Finding an old blue jar in the barn that is filled with slips of paper containing thoughts, quotes, and prayers by an unknown author becomes a boost to Michelle’s budding faith— but also convicting. How can she tell the truth without hurting the ones she has truly come to love?




My Review: Genre: Amish fiction, romance.

My rating: 3 and 1/2 stars.

My recommendation: Anyone who likes Amish fiction.

My favorite character/s: Hmm, I liked each of the characters, (more than in the previous book I read by this author.) But I am not sure that I have a favorite character as I didn’t connect with them that well.

My thoughts: I decided to give Brunstetter another read since my mom enjoyed her older books and I know a few other people who enjoy her books. This book was better, I enjoyed the plotline, characters, details. I can’t say that I am in love with the author’s books but I did enjoy this one and will try more from her perhaps an older book that my mom has read and enjoyed. And I should mention that the puppies make me want one of my own.

(I received this book in exchange for my honest review, and I am truly happy to provide it!)

  1. Definitely try one of her older ones like Daughters Of Lancaster County or her Brides Of Lancaster County series! WAY better then her new ones 😉

  2. I just received The Healing Jar through NetGalley, not knowing it’s part of a series! I’m new to NetGalley…I wonder if I can read it out of turn.

    1. Cool! I hope that you like NetGalley . . . I believe that the other books in the series have been archived on NetGalley and are no longer on there.
