Faith Stutzman Andrews left her Amish community ten years ago to pursue a career as a comedian. Now widowed, she suddenly reappears on her parents’ doorstep with her six-year-old daughter in tow.

More About the Author

Wanda Brunstetter is an award-winning romance novelist who has led millions of readers to lose their heart in the Amish life. She is the author of over 60 books with more than 7 million copies sold. Many of her books have landed on the top bestseller lists, including the New York Times, USA Today, Publisher's Weekly, CBA, ECPA, and CBD. Wanda is considered one of the founders of the Amish fiction genre, and her work has been covered by national publications, including Time Magazine and USA Today.

Wanda's fascination with the Amish culture developed when she met her husband, Richard, who grew up in a Mennonite church, and whose family has a Pennsylvania Dutch heritage. Meeting her new Mennonite sister-in-laws caused Wanda to yearn for the simpler life. In their travels, she and her husband have become close friends with many Amish people across America. Wanda's desire to explore their culture increased when she discovered that her great-great grandparents were part of the Anabaptist faith.

All of Wanda's novels are based on personal research intended to accurately portray the Amish way of life. Many of her books are well-read and trusted by the Amish, who credit her for giving readers a deeper understanding of the people and their customs.

Wanda's primary attraction to the Amish is their desire to live a devout Christian life that strives to honor God, work hard, and maintain close family ties. Whenever she visits her Amish friends, Wanda finds herself drawn to their peaceful lifestyle, sincerity, and close family ties, which is in stark contrast to the chaos and busyness that plagues so many modern "Englishers." Time and time again, Wanda loses her heart in the Amish life, and she hopes her readers will, too. For more information, visit: www.WandaBrunstetter.com

In "Going Home," Wanda Brunstetter has once again transported her readers to a kinder, more gentle way of life. "Going Home" tells the story of Faith Stutzman Andrews, a young woman who was raised Amish but left everything she knew to pursue her dreams in the modern world. Now a widow with a young daughter to raise, Faith retuns to Missouri to live with her Amish family with one goal in mind, only to find her life taking one unexpected turn after another. As she examines her heart, Faith finds her intial goal is forgotten and replaced by what truly matters most to her.

Wanda Brunstetter has a rare gift. Her characters are "real" and we can all relate to the situations they find themselves in -- fear of rejection by those we love; perseverance in times of trial; faith and prayer in times of uncertainty. Ms. Brunstetter leaves her readers enveloped in a blanket of hope and a feeling of spiritual refreshment at the end of "Going Home."

I loved the "surpise" recipe at the end of the book as much as the book itself, and can't wait for the next book in the series!

Format: Paperback
Faith left home at eighteen to follow her dream of country type performing on the stage, mostly by yodeling and joke telling. The man she married was more agent than husband, but he kept her busy. Along came a little daughter who was rather dragged from motel to stage, to sitters and back to the motel. Not an ideal way to raise a little girl.

When Faith's husband is killed suddenly, she is forced to make a decision, and decides to take her little girl home to the Plain people, get her settled, then leave for the stage again. In the meantime, she must dress, act and try to pass as Amish.

Now twenty eight years old, Faith struggles with the questions her parents keep asking her about church. Since she knows she is not staying, she does not intend to join the church. Some of her old friends and family are quite understanding of her circumstances,her mother finally comes around, but her father stays aloof, gruff and less lovable than she would like.... however she has told no one she plans to leave again.

Noah is an unusual sort of Amish man. He prefers baking to farm work, and has such low self esteem he is sure no woman will ever want him as husband. However, he is a jewel, a real Christian, wholesome man, and befriends Faith. The reader falls in love with Noah as well!

This book drags a bit, with not much depth, but it is a light, happy story of which younger girls would probably enjoy reading.

I enjoy reading good books concerning the Almish. I also know I don't have to worry about bad language or situations that are not right. I'd recommend this book to anyone from teenager to senior citizen. Good read!

The writing skill was as if you were living within the book. The characters play well on your mind as to what they will do next. Suspense holds you to the end! Brunstetter is an awesome author.

I love reading about the Amish and I believe Mrs. Brunstetter's books are the best! Going Home is a great book that I would recommend to anyone. One of the reasons I love this book is because it shows a softer side of the Amish, especially the men. Some people think the Amish are unforgiving when it comes to family members leaving the Faith, but this book proves that to be a wrong assumption. It also shows how an Amishman can farm or do any other "man's work" and still love to do other things, such as baking.

I love to use Mrs. Brunstetter's books as a witness to my non Christian loved ones.

I'm never disappointed when I pick up a book from Wanda Brunstetter. Her account of the Amish faith is so accurate. I enjoyed Going Home; it shows how important family ties are. I also read On Her Owna and Dear to me fromt he Webster County Series. I can't wait for the final book.

My parents were both raised Amish and left when they married. I still enjoy reading about the Amish....especially the way Wanda brings families to life.
