Allison Troyer is of marriageable age and needs to learn how to manage an Amish household. Can a girl who feels as faceless, purposeless, and neglected as her tattered Amish doll, find her way among strangers? 

James Esh likes what he sees when Allison Troyer walks into the barn. Will anything keep this brash young Amish man from stealing her affections? 

Aaron Zook has vowed never to lose his heart to another. Yet when James makes advances on Allison, Aaron can't help but intercede. Can threads of faith and love unite tattered hearts? 

Now available in mass market size, Allison's Journey is book 4 in the The Brides of Webster County series. Other books in the series include Going Home: Book 1, On Her Own: Book 2, Dear to Me: Book 3.

My thoughts:  I have never read a book by one of the reigning queens of Amish fiction and my publisher thought I should so they were kind enough to send me two of her books.  This one is set in Seymour, Missouri in Webster County where two of my series (seven books total) were set.  In case you are interested, my books are Patchwork Dreams, A Harvest of Hearts, Promised to Another, Healing Love,  Surrendered Love, Awakened Love, and A White Christmas in Webster County. 

Seymour (Webster County) Missouri is only about two hours from my home so when I go to Springfield, I drive through the town--a trip that is not complete without an Amish sighting!  It was nice to "drive down" the dusty backroads with Ms. Brunstetter and 'see" the community through her eyes. 

ALLISON'S JOURNEY is  a sweet, slow romance involving very young couples. There are many many points of view in this story, not just hero and heroine, which surprised me, but it was nice to know, for example, what Allison's dad thought of his sister, Catherine and her behavior.  And it was nice to know what Aunt Mary really thought of Allison's lack of skills. 

It was interesting watching how Allison grew from being a tomboy who knew nothing about homemaking to being more than capable and even liking it.  

If you like Amish romances and missed this book when it came out with Heartsong Presents many many long years ago, you have an opportunity to read it again as Barbour reissued it.  Grab your copy now. 

I received a copy of this book free and all opinions are my own.

I'm surprised you had never read one of Wanda Brunstetter's books. It's been a while since I've read this series and with the reiusse edition the covers are changed.
