Review: The Hope Jar by Wanda E. Brunstetter

September 2, 2018

 About The Book:

  What happens when making an elderly Amish couple very happy means going along with a lie that gets bigger by the day?

  Michelle Taylor is not who her new family in Lancaster County believes her to be. The Lapps were looking for their long-lost granddaughter when they met Michelle and she assumed the identity of Sara Murray. Once homeless and hopeless, Michelle has come to love her new Amish friends and even considers the idea of romance among them.
  Finding an old blue jar in the barn that is filled with slips of paper containing thoughts, quotes, and prayers by an unknown author becomes a boost to Michelle’s budding faith— but also convicting. How can she tell the truth without hurting the ones she has truly come to love?

My Thoughts: 

   This book was really sweet but very slow. It didn't really grab me and hold my attention. But it focused a lot on giving second chances, forgiveness and showing that even if you're not related by blood, you can still be family. It handled the whole deception part really good too. I loved the little notes Michelle found in the jar, they added a nice aspect to the story. The book also felt like it went in circles quite a bit, with the same thought pattern. It wasn't till the very end that Michelle started to grow. So while I didn't particularly enjoy this one I do think if you're looking for a cute, sweet read you'd like it. And the ending! Makes you eager to read the next one. 





I received this book free from the publisher for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.
