"Seth Kincaid survived a fire in a cave, but he's never been the same. He was always a reckless youth, but now he's gone over the edge. He ran off to the Civil War and came back crazier than ever.
After the war, nearly dead from his injuries, it appears Seth got married. Oh, he's got a lot of excuses, but his wife isn't happy to find out Seth doesn't remember her. Callie has searched, prayed, and worried. Now she's come to the Kincaid family's ranch in Colorado to find her lost husband.
Callie isn't a long-suffering woman. Once she knows her husband is alive, she wants to kill him. She's not even close to forgiving him for abandoning her.
Then more trouble shows up in the form of a secret Seth's pa kept for years. The Kincaid brothers might lose their ranch if they can't sort things out. It's enough to drive a man insane--but somehow it's all making Seth see things more clearly. And now that he knows what he wants, no one better stand in his way."

Product Review, Giveaway and Author Interview :: The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club By Wanda Brunstetter

Anyone that knows me well knows that 1) I LOVE to read and 2) I love Amish fiction. So today I've compiled those two things with one of my favorite Amish fiction writers, Mrs. Wanda Brunstetter for a review, giveaway AND interview for you guys! Today I'll be reviewing and giveaway away a copy of the book The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club as well as share a special interview with Mrs. Brunstetter!

About The Author ::
Wanda Brunstetter is a Christian Amish fiction writer and in the past, I've had the pleasure of reading her series The Sisters of Holmes County, and White Christmas Pie which I really enjoyed! I love how clean Wanda books are, yet they are exciting and interesting! Here is a bit about Mrs. Brunstetter that I found on her "About" page on her website:
professionalbiophoto About
Wanda Brunstetter is an award-winning romance novelist who has led millions of readers to lose their heart in the Amish life. She is the author of over 60 books with more than 6 million copies sold. Many of her books have landed on the top bestseller lists, including the New York Times, Publisher’s Weekly, CBA, ECPA, and CBD. Wanda is considered one of the founders of the Amish fiction genre, and her work has been covered by national publications, includingTime Magazine and USA Today.

Wanda’s fascination with the Amish culture developed when she met her husband, Richard, who grew up in a Mennonite church, and whose family has a Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Meeting her new Mennonite sister-in-laws caused Wanda to yearn for the simpler life. In their travels, she and her husband have become close friends with many Amish people across America. Wanda’s desire to explore their culture increased when she discovered that her great-great grandparents were part of the Anabaptist faith.
