Review of The Journey

The Journey (Kentucky Brothers)

The Journey
Wanda Brunstetter
Barbour Publisher April 2011
ISBN 9781602606814

   Titus Fisher decides to leave Lancaster, Pennsylvania after his long time girlfriend leaves for California. Phoebe Stoltzfus has decided she is not ready to join the church and settle down to a marriage and a family. Titus hopes to start fresh with a new job and a new life in Pembroke, Kentucky. He also hopes to prove himself to his parents and quit living in his twin brother's shadow.
    Titus wants to start over; but is he willing to try and love again? One woman is well suited and would make a wonderful wife for any man. The other woman gets on his last nerve from the very start. Not only does she look like Phoebe; but she goes against all conventions for a woman of the Amish faith.
    As Titus tries to settle into his new home in Kentucky, trial after trial seems to be thrown his way. He will have to decide if he is up to the challenges that are tossed his way. Will his faith in the Lord see him through?  Has he matured enough to handle the relationships in his life and the decisions that could affect the rest of his life?
    Titus and Suzanne are two major characters in this story. In many ways, Suzanne is much more mature and has a stronger faith in the Lord then Titus. She does have times of insecurity and questions herself along the way. Both of them grow in maturity and stronger in their faith as the story progresses.
    If you are a fan of Amish fiction, I would recommend this book. It is also a very nice Christian read. I did have some difficulty with the way the story bounced from one location to the next. It made the storyline a bit choppy; overall it was a good read
    I  received this free as an eBook from the publisher through Netgalley's book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's regulations.

I would give it a rating of 3.5 stars.
