Return to the Big Valley is a compilation of three novellas by Wanda, Jean and Richelle Brunstetter. These are each nice short stories that can read in an evening. Each of the stories are based on different couples with different situations they are dealing with. I enjoyed reading these stories and the different writing style of each of the authors.

In Wilma’s Wish we see the struggles Israel had with taking his five nephews when his sister died. It is fun to see how the boys change through out the story and how Wilma struggles with trying to help Israel.

In Martha’s Miracle we see a young lady who loves the outdoors, hunting and fishing. She struggles with finding a man who loves her just the way she is. When she meets Glen she is faced with having a man who likes her for herself, but is leaning toward the English life.

Alma’s Acceptance is a story of second chances. Alma’s husband past away just weeks prior and she has gone to visit friends. While there she get reacquainted with a friend and their relationship moves faster than others approve.

These are nice stories to read just to get away from things. The theme of faith and prayer is evident in each story. Each of the stories has a different romance situation where the couple have to make choices.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley and Barbour Publishing. This is my honest review. ( )

The Return to the Big Valley is a collection of three Amish stories. These stories include:
Wilma’s Wish by Wanda E. Brunstetter
Martha’s Miracle by Jean Brunstetter
Alma’s Acceptance by Richelle Brunstetter
I enjoyed every one of these short stories. All of them are heartwarming with clean romance. I was entertained with all three. Readers will be able to connect with one or more of the characters. Though, I liked them all, my favorite of the three would have to be Wanda E Brunstetter’s Wilma’s Wish.

The Return to the Big Valley is getting four stars from me. I recommend it for readers who enjoy reading sweet Amish fiction. It is definitely worth a read. I liked it.

I received a paperback copy of The Return to the Big Valley from the publisher, but was not required to write a review. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion. ( )

Three stories in one book written by three different Brunstetter ladies. I thought they all did a good job. Below is the book description from Amazon and have copied it here as they did a good job of summarizing these three stories.

"Journey back to an area of Pennsylvania that is home to three distinct Amish communities and meet three young women who face heartfelt disappointments in romance.

Wilma’s Wish by Wanda E. Brunstetter
Wilma Hostetler has been courted by Israel Zook for the last year, and he’s recently proposed marriage. But when his sister dies, leaving him to care for five young nephews who openly dislike Wilma, she has second thoughts of starting with a ready-made family and decides to call off the wedding. Can anything be done to restore the relationship, or will Israel seek another wife?

Martha’s Miracle by Jean Brunstetter
Martha Yoder is different from other Amish women in her love of hunting and the outdoors. Meeting Glen Swarey, who is working with the local fire department, seems to be a good match. But can Martha accept Glen’s thoughts of leaving the Amish faith, or will she walk away from a chance at love?

Alma’s Acceptance by Richelle Brunstetter
Alma Wengerd is a young widow who leaves her home in Kentucky to stay with friends in Pennsylvania. Soon she is speeding into a renewed romance with Elias Kurtz and raising the brows of the older church members. When Alma is waylaid by some unexpected news, could putting her happiness with Elias on hold be her only option?" ( )

I am so happy that I had the chance to read The Return To The Big Valley. More specifically, Wanda Brunstetter’s Wilma’s Wish. Once again, Brunstetter has managed to create a beautiful, heart warming story that instantly captured me and made me fall in love with her characters!

Wanda Brunstetter takes us once again to the heart of the Amish country. She vividly portrays her characters and their homes, bringing them to life for the reader. You truly get to know Wilma, Israel, and the rascally nephews and become a part of their family. It was such a fun time!

That one was my favorite of the novellas, though, certainly, the others are beautifully written and filled with heart stealing characters, as well. This is one of my favorite Amish collections this year and I am looking forward to recommending this 4 star to read to all of my family and friends! Well done, ladies!

Return to the Big Valley contains three Amish tales by Wanda E. Brunstetter, Jean Brunstetter, and Richelle Brunstetter. The stories are Wilma’s Wish, Martha’s Miracle, and Alma’s Acceptance. We are taken back to Big Valley, Pennsylvania which we visited in The Brides of Big Valley. Each story can be read as a standalone. I thought the stories were well-written with good life lessons. There is good dialogue and pacing as well. Each story gives us a different look at Amish life. They are heartwarming and realistic stories. I could understand Wilma’s hesitancy at suddenly becoming a mother to five mischievous boys who were making life difficult. It was definitely a situation where a person needed to step back and re-evaluate the situation. Martha Yoder is a unique Amish woman. She prefers to be outdoors, and Martha enjoys hunting and fishing. It is hard to find an Amish man who will accept her (who does not want her to change). I liked that we get to see an Amish woman in a non-traditional role. Alma becomes a widow after a year of marriage. Her friend suggests she visit her in Big Valley where she reunites with an old friend and someone she had developed feelings for as a teen. She wonders if it is too soon to find love again. I enjoyed all three tales that deal with grief, caring parents, romantic tension, relationship obstacles, love, and humor. We get to enjoy everyday life in the community. I appreciated the epilogues that nicely wrapped up each novella. Return to the Big Valley has three sweet Amish tales that are a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. ( )
