    " Do you like historical theological romantic amish fiction? Have I ever got the book for you. If you don't like these things, this book is also excellent. I recomment making it a drinking game. The person across from you takes a shot when the phrase "heart of stone" is uttered. The person to your left takes a sip every time some synonym for 'old maid' or 'spinster' is introduced. And EVERYONE takes a shot when the phrase 'tragic buggy incident' occurs. I promise you that everyone will have alcohol poisoning by the middle of the second chapter. "

    " Not only predictible in what was going to happen but predictible in what was going to be in the next paragraph. She is a very prolific author and I was sure I stumbled on another enjoyable vein of reading, but did not enjoy this book. Will try a few more before giving up on her entirely........ "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 1/28/2014

    " The main character annoyed me, and the characters were undeveloped and a bit flat. However, it didn't offend me and was something to read on the plane while we were traveling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Avery Watkins | 1/26/2014

    " This was a very fast read for me, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. A Merry Heart was my first read by Wanda Brunstetter. I will definitely get the next book in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Owen | 1/25/2014

    " First in a series about the Amish. Fast paced plot, sometimes difficult to keep up with all the characters. Interesting to learn more about the Amish way of life. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trina | 11/3/2013

    " I listened to this one on cd and its a good thing or I would have never gotten through it. The beginning and end was fine but the middle (i mean most of it) of the book dragged. Cute idea for a story but the plot was too slow and repetative. "

    " a sweet read but Grace Livingston Hill does the whole 'marriage before falling in love with the good man who is your husband' thing better. "

    " I loved this book it was a fast read and very good. I didn't want to put it down, it always had me quessing what is going to happen next?!.

    " I really enjoyed this book. Though predictable in some parts, the majority of the book kept me glued to the page, so much that I’d want to interject with the main character. I thoroughly enjoyed the historical accuracy of the book when describing Lancaster county and Ephrata PA where I am from. "
