    Highly recommend

    This was the second cooking class by Heidi Troyer and the second in this series by Wanda Brunstetter. Even though there were a few "Catch-ups" for former students in the first class and continuations of one in particular, you do not need to read the first book to enjoy this one...but why would you deny yourself the pleasure? I loved the characters presented in this novel and grew to care more about them as the story progressed. Each one was struggling with an issue in their life whether real or imagined. In between the six cooking classes the author carried you through the lives of each student and also Heidi, the cooking instructor. Each was unique, and I loved how Heidi used the God inspired scriptures she wrote on the back of the recipe cards to reach even the hardest heart in the group. You will cry, laugh, cheer and learn with the characters as you read their stories and the resolutions they come to before the book ends. Better yet, each recipe they learn to cook in class is included in the back of the book, all six. Yum! And fifteen discussion questions also in the back of the book to get you thinking and sharing and discussing with friends. I highly recommend this warm delightful book. A great way to pass a few hours in Ohio. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.

    THE BLESSING

    THE BLESSING by Wanda Brunsetter Amish Cooking Class book 2 Heidi dreams of having a baby, and then she would quit teaching cooking class to raise the baby. Kendra moves back home and with help of parents she is keeping. Heidi did love teaching, has 5 that signed up. Interesting mixture , of who they are, and why they are taking the class. This was a rich description of them in the story, and the support of how the Amish gives to other so freely. These people got so much more then just cooking. Given ARC copy from Net Galley for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.

    Heidi and Lyle are a married Amish couple who are unable to have children, and are in the process of adopting a baby from a young unwed Englisher woman who is pregnant. Lyle is an auctioneer, who travels a lot, so his wife has a lot of extra time on her hands and has decided to host her second Amish Cooking School in her home, 6 classes one held every other Saturday. The students: Todd-critical & self-centered Lisa-caterer, looking for new ideas or recipes for her clients Bill-divorced, spends a lot of time with his hunting buddies at his cabin, but he always has to cook and he needs HELP! Nicole-high school student, she has two younger siblings and a father at home-her mom is a drunk who walked out on the family and is living with some creepy guy, so Nicole has to cook, clean and do her school work and is failing at all three. Her dad gave her the cooking lessons, so maybe the family could get some good food. Lance-Heidi's mailman, he happened by, smelled good things, missed the first class, but joined right in. Allie-Her police officer husband gave her the gift of the cooking classes, she's not sure if she'll like them or not. Heidi gives each participant an index card with the recipe printed on it and also a Bible verse on it, that she hopes will help each person, or at least get them to stop and think. As they journey through her classes, Heidi wonders if there will be any romance as there was in her first class. She and Lyle receive a stunning blow when they find out that offer of the baby that they were adopting was retracted, and the mother decided to keep her baby. They both wonder will they never get to be parents? Allie, suggests that they become foster parents, so they discuss it and decide to go for it. As the classes are coming to a close, Nicole finds out that an anonymous donor has paid for a housekeeper to come once a week until school is out-lifting a Huge burden from her shoulders. She is finally able to enjoy the cooking class and enjoy life a little. Todd is slowly finding Jesus Christ and he and Lisa may have a budding romance. Bill has become closer to God and his own son Brent and for that he is thankful. Lance is truly happy. Heidi and Lyle are awaiting their first children.

    Second book in An Amish Cooking Class series!

    The Blessing by Wanda Brunstetter is the second Amish Cooking Class novel. Heidi Troyer is married to Lyle, an auctioneer, and they are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Kendra’s baby. Kendra is living with the couple (after her father threw her out when he discovered she was pregnant), and she has agreed to let Heidi and Lyle adopt her baby. When things do not go as planned, Lyle suggests Heidi hold another cooking class (keep her busy). Six people join Heidi in her home and each of them have a different reason. Lance is a postal carrier who has lost his wife, Nicole is a high school student who has struggling since her mother left, Todd is a food critic who is going to write an article about the class, Allie is a housewife with two kids who worries about her policeman husband and their marriage, Lisa is a local caterer who is hoping to learn new dishes for her business, and Bill who wishes to learn new dishes to impress his camping buddies. Heidi will teach them Amish dishes and share some of God’s wisdom with them through Bible verses. Heidi knows this group of people were brought together for a reason, and she looks forward to the experience. It will help Heidi deal with her own heartbreak. See what God has planned for each of these individuals and what the future hold for the Troyer’s in The Blessing. The Blessing is well-written and engaging. I was immediately drawn into the story and I did not want it to end. I was captivated by this novel (which rarely happens). The Blessing contains characters that could be my own neighbor, relative, or mail carrier. Each of them have problems or situations that individuals experience every day. I thought the characters were well-developed and thought out by the author. I like seeing how each of the characters change over the course of the cooking classes. I was glad that the author updated readers on the individuals from The Seekers (they are nicely woven into the story). My rating for The Blessing is 5 out of 5 stars. I do recommend reading The Seekers before starting The Blessing (you will not regret reading either book). I found The Seekers to be heartwarming and uplifting. It is the type of novel that fills me with hope (which is desperately needed in our mixed-up society). I really appreciated the Bible verses the author included in the book. The enhanced the story and were meaningful. There are recipes and discussion questions at the end of the book. If you like to read Amish or Christian novels, I recommend reading The Blessing. I cannot wait to read the next book in the Amish Cooking Class series.
