Book Review - Love Finds a Home by Wanda E. Brunstetter

From the Publisher:  When times are tough. . .. . .will love find a home? 
Daddy’s Girl:  Glenna Moore has become accustomed to a life of hardship while following her father on his gambling jaunts across America. But when a night of gambling turns into catastrophe, will Glenna’s heart be capable of letting a young reverend’s kindness save her from despair? Reverend David Green trusts God in every action, but will his offer to help a desperate young woman backfire and uproot a past he would rather forget? 
Dear Teacher  Wherever Judith King goes, her physical flaw—one brown eye and one blue—follows her. As she adjusts to her life as a one-room schoolteacher in a Pennsylvania canal town, she insists that no man could fall in love with her. Single father Ernie Snyder is captivated by the beautiful new schoolmarm, but believes it is a hopeless case for a man like him to marry a woman like her. Can two stubborn souls learn to let love into their lives? 
Twice Loved  A position in a used toy shop is an answer to prayer for Bev Winters who finds herself widowed with a young daughter after World War II. But when her employer shows her surprising kindness, she is unsure how to react. After his wife’s death, Dan Fisher dutifully maintains her used toy shop and closes his heart to ever loving another woman. Then Bev Winters enters his life, and he is drawn to help her and her daughter. Will this working relationship turn into love?

My thoughts:  Three short stories of historical fiction and romance.  Each of the three main characters are well described and lovable.  The stories are unique and easy reads.  I highly recommend this book - great for moms with little kids who are looking to escape for a little bit but don't have enough time to "read a book".  You can pick this up and read one of the short stories in a night or two, depending on how much quiet time you really do get.  

Love Finds a Home will  be released on 7/1/11 and is available for prepurchase at  It will be a fantastic book for you to take on vacation with you!! A great read for the airport, the plane or even the train.  This was my first read of this author; you can bet it will not be my last.
