I've been a fan of Brunstetter for some time now, and this is a reread for me. Lydia's Charm has been on my shelf for sometime and I loved going back and seeing the characters. The pages turned quickly for me, as I was engrossed in this beautiful story. Before I knew it, I was at the end, and wanting more.

I loved Lydia's character, along with her sweet son. They were beautifully chiseled by the talented hands of Wanda Brunstetter and really came to life with this story. As Lydia and her son moved back to be with her mom, I traveled right along with her. When she was set up by her mom to gain a new father figure for her boy, I felt her emotions like they were my own. I turned each page of Lydia's story with wonder and anticipation. I love when a book can fully envelope me like that and make me a true part of the characters lives!

This book is tender and emotional, and full of God's grace and mercy. I loved watching Lydia fall in love, I loved watching her mend her relationships with her family, and most of all, I loved how Wanda Brunstetter, once again, had me falling in love all over again with another one of her books. This author is one of my go to authors, buying her books without knowing what they are about, and I'm so glad I revisited this 5 star book! I highly recommend it!

After the death of her husband and the loss of her job, Lydia King moves to Charm, Ohio to help her mother care for her ailing grandfather. Along the way Lydia meets with happiness, tragedy, and two suitors who want to court her. I enjoyed this story of love, loss, and new beginnings set in the Amish community of Charm, Ohio. ( )

I have always enjoyed Wanda's books and this was no exception. I started reading it yesterday and finished it today. I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Lydia's Charm is about Lydia King who moves to Charm after the death of her husband and the lose of her job. She and her son, Josh, move it with her mom.

This is a story of relationships, love, loss, and amish living. There are recipes in the book of some of the wonderful things cooked throughout the book.

My only complaint is like so many books there is always an added sad part that I am not sure is needed so close to the ending of the book. I am not sure if this is to increase the length of the book or not but I know in this book it wasn't needed as this looks to be a stand alone novel and not one of a series that that would be needed to introduce new characters.

After her husband's death, Lydia King and her young son move to Charm, Ohio to help her mother take care of her grandfather. Lydia is not sure if she is ready for love again, but she can't help noticing two men: Menno Troyer, a widower with four young sons, and Levi Stutzman, the only one in his family who is not a dwarf, devoted to his family, and afraid to marry in case he passes the dwarfism gene onto his children. Someone is leaving gifts for Lydia and her mother at the times they need them the most and Lydia is trying to find out who it is. Before she can, tragedy strikes again, and Lydia wonders if her heart will ever heal enough for her to love again.

"Lydia's Charm" is a nicely done, if at times achingly heartbreaking, novel set in the Amish community. Author Wanda E. Brunstetter has created several memorable and realistic characters, starting with Lydia herself, who has to start her life over again several times, struggling to please her mother, suffering more than one devastating loss, and has to make a major decision regarding her future. Her mother Mae has struggled her whole life to please her father and realizes almost too late how that not only hurt Lydia, but her own happiness. Menno Troyer still mourns the loss of his wife but is willing to do what is best for his children - but does he really know what is best? Finally, Levi Stutzman often sacrifices his own needs to take care of his family and is finally realizing he needs to have his own happy life. All of these people have deep storylines, and it is interesting to watch each character grow. Although the book has several very sad moments (as in put down the book and grab a tissue) there are also some happy moments, particularly for Lydia and her mother. I loved the relationship between the Stuzman's - they are a genuinely caring family. Included in the book are some discussion questions and a few recipes. I wouldn't want to try and make it myself but I sure wish I knew someone would make Frogmore Stew so I could try it out!

"Lydia's Charm" is a nicely done novel set in the Amish community that will linger in readers minds long after they've finished reading it. ( )

Overall, I enjoyed this book very much. There is a lot of sadness, but some humor, too. It was a refreshing change from a lot of the Amish fiction where someone was in danger of getting shunned. I enjoyed reading about eating frogmore stew and was surprised to find it in Amish cooking, because it is generally a Southern dish. The book had a good ending and perhaps not much of a surprise unless you were rooting for Menno to find a mother for his boys. ( )
