More from the Missouri Amish

Releasing in March is the 3rd in Wanda E. Brunstetter's Brides of Webster County series.
Dear to Me
Melinda Andrews loves two things deeply—her Amish friend Gabe Swartz and the wild animals she helps to heal. When an Englishman tells Melinda she has a special gift with “critters,” she dreams of becoming a vet. Could this be God’s plan for her life? Gabe loves Melinda and wants to make her his wife. When he finds out about her wild dream, he realizes he must either sacrifice his faith or lose Melinda forever. Will Melinda stay with Gabe and become an Amish fraa or pursue her dream only to be shunned by family and friends forever?
I like that Wanda set this series in an Amish community in Missouri that isn't as well known for being a tourist destination. She also tries to draw out the differences in how they live out their beliefs in comparison to other Amish.

Available in stores in March.
