Title: A SISTER’S TEST
Author: Wanda E. Brunstetter
Publisher: Barbour Books
Ruth Hostettler is planning on marrying Martin Gingerich, and her one desire is to fill their house with children. But while she waits for her dreams to come true, she has plenty to occupy her time. Her sister, Grace, is having a baby soon, and another Amish family has lost their mother.
Someone is also continuing their attacks on the Hostettler family. A stink bomb is thrown threw a barn window, the house and a buggy are toilet papered, a garden is destroyed and threatening notes left on the barn, and clothes drying on the line are shredded. But the worst attack of all leaves Ruth reeling. Her faith put to the test, Ruth finds herself spiritually adrift. Will Ruth find the courage to keep living?
A SISTER’S TEST is the second book in the Sisters of Holmes County series. Readers will want to read the first book A Sisters Secret first so they will know what is going on in the second book, though I think enough backstory is covered so most readers won’t be confused.
The book covers the life of each of the sisters and the parents, so we know what happens with Grace since her marriage, and Martha, and the others. The main character in this book was Ruth though. I enjoyed getting to know her better, and the rest of the family, and sympathized with them with each and every attack on the family. Don’t miss A SISTERS TEST. $14.95. 287 pages.
