Join a class of unlikely Ohioans who take cooking lessons at Lyle and Heidi Troyer’s Amish farm. A woman engaged to marry, an expectant mother estranged from her family, a widowed mom seeking to simplify, a Vietnam vet who camps on the Troyer’s farm, and an Amish widower make up the mismatched lot of students. But Heidi’s cooking lessons soon turn to life lessons as they each share the challenges they are facing. Is this what God had in mind when Heidi got the idea for cooking classes?
I love reading and sharing my latest book with readers like you. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

What happens when a class of unlikely Ohioans take a cooking class at Lyle and Heidi Troyer’s Amish farm? We find out in Wanda E. Brunstetter's The Seekers which is book 1 in her Amish Cooking Class Series.
To be completely honest, I wasn't that excited about this book when I first heard about it because it reminded me so much of Wanda's other, and highly popular, Half-Stitched series. So I went into this book not knowing if it would meet my expectations because I wasn't sure what else Wanda would write about on such a similar topic, but let me tell you, she DID IT!
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I enjoyed getting to know the different characters (a woman engaged to marry, an expectant mother estranged from her family, a widowed mom seeking to simplify, a Vietnam vet who camps on the Troyer’s farm, and an Amish widower).
I was impressed with how Wanda kept me interested in the lives of each of the characters. I also enjoyed Heidi and the role she played in the lives of the characters.
The one lesson that stands out to me from this book is that we never know how we can impact the people in our lives. Heidi viewed her role in teaching the class both an educational time for the students, but also a time to positively impact them.
Wanda took a story I wasn't sure I'd enjoy and did what she does best, she transported me into the story and made me connect with the characters. After reading this book I'm really looking forward to the next one in the series, The Blessing.
