5-Star Review of "The Decision"

Review of The Decision

by Wanda Brunstetter

Discover along with Jonah Miller how life can begin anew in the prairie state of Illinois. Moving from Pennsylvania, finding rewarding work, and leaving heartbreak behind is the best decision Jonah ever made. But is he ready to consider love again when he meets Elaine Schrock? Will his scarred heart mend when she chooses family loyalty over love?

MY REVIEW:  Jonah Miller was featured in the Discovery Saga Collection and when his heart was broken then, he has moved to Illinois to the Amish community and this is where The Decision picks up.  Jonah has found love again with Elaine Schrock but when her grandmother develops diabetes and dementia, she makes a decision that will affect Jonah forever as well.   My own mother is dealing with dementia at this time and while it is not as quickly progressing as Edna's, it is very serious and often troubling.   Wanda handles the story of the illnesses with heart and truth.   She also reveals another illness that is effecting Sara but I won't spoil the surprise of that.  
       I loved this book and read it very quickly as it was quite exciting but I will be honest and say that I personally did not like the ending.  I personally desired a different outcome for the characters but this in fact makes the book that much more enticing to me as a reader.   It definitely has made me want to read the next book in this series to see how things will continue on for the characters.   Endings don't always go as we wish just as life does not always work out as we think it should.  Perhaps the point of this ending in the book is that God always has a plan for us but it may not be the plan we had intended.   
      I rate this book 5 stars and I highly recommend it to readers.
      I received a print copy of this book from the author and an ebook copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.  All opinions are my own.
