Woman of Courage by Wanda Brunstetter, a review

Most of us know Wanda Brunstetter for her books about Amish life.  But Woman of Courage takes a different route and gives us the story of Amanda Pearson, a young Quaker woman.

In the beginning of the story, Amanda is jilted at the last minute by her fiance so she and her father decide to travel to the West to join others who are ministering to the Nez Perce Indians.

As one can imagine since this is a novel, things do not always go smoothly for Amanda.  Throughout the journey, she stands firm in her faith even when circumstances look downright frightening at times.

I found this book very interesting.  It kept my attention to the last chapter.  I highly recommend it to readers who enjoy faith based "get away from it all" novels.  There is something about reading how a character of a book faces adversity that helps us along in our own journey of faith.

This book was furnished by the publisher for review but the opinion is my own.
