Lydia King is suddenly a widow and moves her son and herself to Charm, Ohio, to be close to her mother and help with her grandfather. But is her heart ready for romance when gifts begin appearing on her porch from a mysterious source? Menno Troyer, a furniture store owner, is also recently widowed and the father of four energetic boys. He has come to realize that, though he doesn't think he's ready to love again, his sons need a mother. Levi Stutzman, another newcomer to the area, is the only one in his family not handicapped by dwarfism, and he has dedicated his life to caring for them. Though determined never to marry, he is always willing to be of help to others. Will the anonymous gifts left for Lydia bring her hope for a new life? And when tragedy befalls her yet again, will the mysterious gift-giver be there to support her?

    " This was my first encounter with the writing of Wanda Brunstetter and I'm quite hooked now! Lydia's Charm is so different from other Amish Fiction novels that I've read and quite refreshing at that! Lydia returns home with her son to Charm, Ohio to live with her mother and her grandfather whose health is quickly failing. Brunstetter has addressed some very serious life issues within this novel such as the loss of a spouse, single parenting, and strained familial bonds, as well as prejudice within the Amish community; all presented with such grace and emotion. This is rather a sad novel and I often found myself moved to tears at several points and unable to bring myself to put this book down, but yet, at the same time, I found it to be so endearing and inspirational. Brunstetter is truly a remarkable storyteller! My overall rating for this novel is a five and highly recommend it! I loved every page! "

    " Having major issues with this book. Too cut and dry with no real emotion. May be a DNF. "

    " It was such a wonderful book. I love books about the Amish. It really shows you how there lives are and gives you a look that you may not see otherwise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 12/13/2013

    " This book has some really sad parts. So if you are wanting a good cry (and who doesn't sometimes) then I highly recommend this book. While it is a good book and you care about the characters (very important in my opinion) I didn't really like some of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 7/2/2013

    " What a lovely, homely story. I loved that the author kept me wondering which man she would choose the whole way through. I loved the way all the characters developed and changed for the better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelley Chastagner | 6/2/2013

    " Sweet christian read. Not sure you would really call this a "romance", the attraction between the main characters was vague. The conclusion was pleasant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelley | 2/7/2013

    " Typical Brunstetter, in that it was very predictable and had a few plot holes. Some plotlines bordered on the ridiculous. I am becoming more disenchanted with this author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judith Mullett | 12/24/2012

    " I found this book to be very sad. I was reading it at the college I attend, and was trying hard not to cry in the cafeteria. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherri *Wannabe Rock Chick* | 6/10/2012

    " I thought it was a shade on the depressing side with two deaths and the heroines mother dealing with some latent anger issues. I also thought there was too much involvement from children in this story. 2.75 stars "

    " I like this author and her books about Amish young adults courting, although they are a little bit predictable. This one still kept me guessing to the end though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 5/14/2011

    " This is an easy to read book. A bit different than my favorite Amish writer Beverly Lewis but a very nice story. There is no mystery to it, no murders, etc. but it kept me guessing who Lydia would marry.
    I think all Amish readers will enjoy this book. "
