The Seashell Cake by Wanda E. Brunstetter
Leora Lambright is the first to leave home, seeking a warmer climate for health reasons. While on a winter holiday, roofer John Miller meets Leora in the bakery where she is enjoying expressing herself through cake decorating. They are instantly attracted to each other and spend several days bike riding, fishing, playing shuffleboard, and trying local restaurants. But when Leora makes it clear she’ll never again live up north, without explaining why. Has the romance ended before it could even blossom?
The Beach Ball by Jean Brunstetter
Violet, the youngest of the four Lambright sisters, has always been a bit wild. She moves to Florida to live with her sister as she seeks her independence and considers leaving the Amish way of life. She works as a waitress, has her driver’s license, and buys a cheap car. Her beauty and free spirit attract a lot of male attention like Levi, who is also Amish. When she first meets Dan Hunter, it is his little red sports car that she admires first, but while dating Dan, Levi keeps trying to make Violet commit to him. Can she settle on who should have her heart and how to live out her faith?

She is ready to join the church, but her sister invites her to Florida for an extended visit before taking the pledge of faith.

When Matthew shows up in Pinecraft unexpectedly, how will Francine’s heart respond?

    Engaging Amish Fiction!

    Published by Connie Porter Saunders on Oct 30, 2023

    Intriguing characters, an unusual setting, and real-life issues make this more than a typical Amish fiction book. Wanda Brunstetter and three members of her own family join together to write about four sisters who decide to seek a new life in Florida. None of the sisters go together, and they all have different reasons for leaving Indiana, but their goals are the same. They're looking for new purposes and new lives in the Pinecraft Amish community of Sarasota. Wanda E. Brunstetter has become one of my favorite authors and I've also read stories written by her daughter-law Jean and her granddaughter Richelle, but this book introduces the writing talents of Brunstetter's daughter, Lorine Brunstetter Van Corbach. I found it amazing that each author was able to write a tale that blended so well with the others, and I appreciated that they each mentioned all of the Lambright family in their individual stories. Sisters by the Sea is a well-written collection that will keep you engaged in the lives of Leora, Violet, Francine, and Alana Lambright. I recommend it to all who enjoy Amish fiction and Christian romance, and I look forward to more joint efforts by these authors. I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own opinions.
