The Discovery Saga Collection (A 6-Part Series from Lancaster County) by Wanda E. Brunstetter is a wonderful Amish Christian Fiction book. Meredith and Luke Stoltzfus are newlyweds, but they are having financial difficulties. Luke lost his job working at the furniture store due to the economy and he will not let Meredith try to find work. Luke is then offered a chance to purchase his Uncle Amos' headstone engraving business. He will have to travel to Indiana from Bird-in-Hand, Pennsylvania to learn from Uncle Amos, but he figures it will be worth it. Meredith does not want Luke traveling during the winter because of the awful snow storms and blizzards. Unfortunately, the bus to Indiana that Luke was taking hits a tanker trunk and everyone on board is killed. Unknown to Meredith or anyone else, Luke was not on the bus. He was robbed and beaten at the bus terminal. Luke had no I.D. on him and is left in a coma.

Meredith is left grief stricken at the loss of her husband and pregnant. Luke is badly injured and has severe amnesia. The next year of their lives with be hard for both of them and their families. With faith and love they will find a way back to each other and find true happiness.

The Discovery Saga Collection was originally released in six parts (one section a month). It is now being released as one complete book. I would rate this book at 4 out of 5 stars. The Discovery Saga Collection was very enjoyable and a delight to read. I look forward to reading more books by Wanda E. Brunstetter. Happy Reading!

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

Your are about to embark on an adventure, no one would want to take, and through no fault of their own, their lives are about to change forever.
This adventure takes place in Amish country, and young couples are having financial problems, typical in any culture. This is the story of Meredith and Luke Stoltzfus, and there struggles and losses, and you find yourself, having to keep reading, how is this going to end. We know what is going on, but Meredith and Luke, of course, only know their portion.
I can’t imagine being pregnant, and knowing my husband is never coming back. Or in Luke’s case, he doesn’t know who he is, or ever were he is or how he got there. What a great idea for a story, and you could feel yourself living each person’s part of his or her life, and hoping and praying for what we want to happen.
Life goes on, and like a snowball rolling down a hill you won’t know which direction their paths are going to take. Of course, this makes the story so interesting and page turning. We do have to wait until the very end to find a conclusion, but that is the way life is too. Pick this one up you will not be disappointed.

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Shiloh Run Press, and was not required to give a positive review. ( )
