The Seekers Review.

The Seekers by Wanda E. Brunstetter

Book Description:
30358279Will Heidi's cooking lessons turn into life lessons for five unlikely students?

Heidi Troyer cooks up the idea of teaching classes in the art of Amish cuisine in her Holmes County, Ohio, home. But is it a recipe for drama when five very different men and women answer the advertisement?

Join a class of unlikely Ohioans who take cooking lessons at Lyle and Heidi Troyer’s Amish farm. A woman engaged to marry, an expectant mother estranged from her family, a widowed mom seeking to simplify, a Vietnam vet who camps on the Troyer’s farm, and an Amish widower make up the mismatched lot of students.

Class members share details of their disappointing lives, work to solve a mystery, and stir some romance into the pot. Soon Heidi’s cooking lessons turn into life lessons as they each share their challenges. . .and their souls are healed one meal at a time. Is this what God had in mind when Heidi got the idea for cooking classes?

My Opinion:
Not a book for me.  I've read and enjoyed Wanda's works in the past and thought the concept interesting and the book description intriguing....well.....The book description doesn't really describe what I found in the book.  There's no real mystery in my opinion.  And I felt there were scenes that didn't really need to be in the book. :/  I did enjoy the different characters and I absolutely LOVED how much scripture Wanda included throughout the story.  Overall the plots just didn't capture me except for a few scenes here and there, and this book just wasn't personally for me.  

Songs: "He Leadeth Me" performed by The Cluster Pluckers
Songs etc. May be changed and/or added in the future. ~ASC

Jeremiah 29:11


*I received this book from Barbour for the purpose of reviewing it.  This in no way affected my opinion and the above are my true thoughts and feelings about The Seekers. ~ASC
