The book has an interesting plot but the pace was slow. There are only so many pages a reader can stand of characters having angry thoughts. If there had been a few more twists and turns in the plot the book would have been more interesting. Also, providing the reader with a resolution of the vandalism of the greenhouse would have been nice since it was mentioned in the book's blurb. ( )

I'm not sure if I've ever read a mystery where it wasn't solved by the end. Other than that, the book wasn't too bad. I liked the characters, though I think their speech was a bit formal some times for speaking among family members. I felt bad for them all with the triple deaths, but it made for an interesting story. ( )

“The Crow’s Call” represents the first in a new series about Amish culture. Amy and her mom Belinda are left to manage the family greenhouse business when death claims several male members of the family. Younger brother Henry and sister Sylvie help as they are able, but often these two are not able to cope with the work and with meeting people. Amy is willing to give up her own happiness to help her mom, and Belinda must also deal with the unwelcome attentions of a past love. The plotline shows how each character deals with grief and loss in his or her own way.

Readers of the “Jars” Amish series will enjoy the reappearance in this novel of Michelle and Ezekiel and their children. Other familiar characters also play a part in this story. While the novel begins on a tragic note, the characters try to move on and establish a new rhythm to their lives. Readers are given insights into the thoughts and feelings of each major character in the household. The cliffhanger ending will encourage readers to continue with the next novel in the series. (Personally, I dislike this kind of ending that forces readers to read the next book in the series so as to resolve issues that are left hanging. But I will most likely read it anyway.) This is probably not a good read for a stand-alone novel.

I received this book from the publisher and from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed here are entirely my own. ( )

I hate to leave a less than a praiseworthy review. I have always enjoyed Wanda E. Brunstetter's books but I have to say I was totally disappointed in this book. Not that the book itself was a bad read, but because it ended so abruptly without resolving a lot of things. I feel that when an author does this, it is to force you to purchase the next book. Because of this, my rating will only be 2 stars.
The story itself was well written and kept my interest, another reason the ending was so upsetting. The characters were fairly well developed although there were a few characters in the book that didn't seem to play any part but to lengthen the book.
I enjoyed that it was a Christian book with a lot of reference to prayer and Bible verses.
The book was an ARC so the editing may not have been fully finished but it is in need of another review. There were extra words as the main problem and it got worse the more I read. The last quarter of the book was the worst and the beginning well done.
I was given a copy of this book through Netgalley and Shiloh Run Press and the opinions are totally my own. ( )

What happens when a tragic accident takes the lives of three members of one family? How do the survivors carry on? The answers to these questions are the basis of this new book by Wanda E. Brunstetter and it is a powerful illustration why she has become one of the best-selling authors of our time. She completely captures the varying emotions of these family members after their tragedy. We witness the strength and deep faith of a woman who has lost a husband, son, and son-in-law; the faltering faith of a young widow who wonders how God allowed this to happen; and the outright rebellion of a teenage boy who has lost his father, brother, and brother-in-law. Several mysterious occurrences involving their Amish greenhouse, a romance that seems doomed, and a crow named Charlie all contribute even more interest to this story.

The Crow's Call has everything that I've come to expect in a Brunstetter book and it offers readers a reunion with characters from The Prayer Jars series. An inspiring faith message and a mystery that is left unsolved certainly makes it a book to recommend and I am eagerly waiting to read The Mockingbird's Song, book two of The Amish Greenhouse Mystery.

I received a copy of this book from the author but there was no obligation to post a favorable review. These are my own thoughts. ( )
