Have to say that the way this story wrapped up was not what I was expecting. Jonah Miller is a man who might feel he is unloveable. He moves from Pennsylvania to Illinois to settle into a new Amish community when the woman he was to marry broke his heart. He is courting Elaine Schrock, who is being raised by her grandparents. When her Grandpa suddenly dies and Grandma begins the early stages of dementia, Elaine must let the man she loves go, so she can care for her Grandma. Won't spoil and ending, but it went a different direction than I was expecting. ( )

I was very disappointed in this book. It just didn't stand up to what I have come to expect from this author. ( )

The Decision by Wanda Brunstetter is the first book in her new Prairie State Friends series. The story opens with Elaine Shrock finding her Grandfather seriously ill. He is dying and his last request is that she promises to care for her Grandmother. Elaine loves her Grandparents dearly and she readily commits to this promise.

Keenly feeling the loss of her Grandfather, she is soon faced with life changing obstacles when her Grandmother becomes diagnosed with serious illness. While her faith is strong, she stays committed to her promise but the decisions she makes have far reaching effects. Effects that she never dreamed of having to face.

I spent a delightful and relaxing afternoon reading The Decision. I was impressed by the deep characters and the complexity of the story line that kept me interested and engaged in the story through out the book.

What I found most impressive though, was how Ms. Brunstetter creatively acknowledged and weaved the issues that caregivers often face when caring for a loved one with chronic illness. All in all, I found The Decision to be an interesting and enjoyable book!

Many thanks to Kim @ Nancy Berlin Public Relations for the opportunity to review this book. My review is an honest reflection of my impressions, thoughts and feelings regarding this book. ( )

We begin this book with the death of Elaine’s grandfather, and the beginning of her dedication to her grandmother, per her grandfather’s last request. Her paternal grandparent’s raised Elaine after her parents were killed in a buggy accident, and she would do anything for them.
Jonah Miller, who you will remember from the Discovery Saga Collection, is now courting Elaine, he was left, so to speak, at the altar, and now Elaine is pulling away. We also meet Sara who is a young widow with a son, and struggling with a new illness, what could be wrong?
These young people are all thrown together, and we hope and pray that they will all follow Gods plan for their lives, and not the one that they decide to travel. I did love that at the end of the book there is an epilogue that updates us on all of the happening.
From cover to cover this book will have you turning the pages as quickly as possible to find out the answers. Some tough subjects are dealt with here, and these are horrible things that happen in all cultures.
Come and enjoy another visit in Amish Country with Wanda E. Brunstetter, you will not be disappointed.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publish Shiloh Run Press, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )

The Decision by Wanda E. Brunstetter is the first book in The Prairie State Friends series. The Decision is such a joy to read. This book picks up after The Discovery Saga Collection (A 6-part series from Lancaster County). Jonah Miller has moved from Lancaster County to Arthur, Illinois. He did not feel he could stay in Lancaster County and get over Meredith. Jonah’s twin sister, Jean and her husband, Nathan (along with their two children) live in Arthur. Jonah has bought a property and started a buggy making business.

Elaine Schrock lives with her grandparents, Lloyd and Edna Schrock. Her parents died in a buggy accident when she was little and her paternal grandparents took her in and raised her. Grandfather Schrock dies suddenly of a heart attack with his last words asking Elaine to take care of her grandmother. Shortly after his death Edna starts acting strangely. Edna is getting forgetful as well as having dizzy spells. Elaine takes her to the doctor and finds out that Edna has Type II Diabetes. Edna will have to modify her diet and take medication to control the diabetes. Elaine knows this will be difficult since her grandmother loves sweets. One day Edna passes out at a local diner and is taken to the hospital. The doctor runs tests and discovers that Edna has dementia. How will this diagnosis affect Elaine’s life?

Jonah and Elaine have been courting for the last year, but when her grandmother becomes ill Elaine feels that she must handle her responsibilities on her own. Elaine tells Jonah that she does not love him and pushes him away. Jonah feels hurt. This rejection is especially hard after what happened with Meredith. Jonah starts spending time with Sara.

Sara Stutzman is a widow with a two year old son, Mark. She was married to Hurley who was a friend of Jonah’s. Sara is tired all the time and has a tingling sensation in her arms and legs. Sara gets diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Sara has to decide to whether to stay in Arthur or go back to her home town (where her parents live). How will Jonah handle the news of Sara’s illness?

To find out what happens with Elaine, Jonah, and Sara, please read The Decision. It is such a marvelous book. I did not want it to end. I have to warn you that it gets sad towards the end. You will need to have your hankie close by! I give The Decision 5 out of 5 stars. I cannot wait for the next book in The Prairie State Friends series.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. ( )
