The Seekers by Wanda E. Brunstetter
Heidi Troyer has been married for eight years with no children, and is bored during the summer, so she decides to teach a cooking class for adults. Her first class consists of five adults, and four of them need to learn how to cook, and the other one is just taking the class for fun. Kendra Perkins was kicked out of the house when her parents found out that she was pregnant. Charlene Higgins is engaged but her fiance’s family disapproves of her because she can’t cook! Ron Hensley only intended to park his RV on the Troyer’s land for awhile, but soon finds himself. Eli Miller is dealing with the loss of his wife, who was hit by a car on her way home from a friend’s house, and he needs to learn how to cook for himself. Loretta Donnelly is adjusting to life without her husband and trying to raise her two children alone. Loretta tries to keep life simple for her children, and decides to take a cooking class to get her mind off of things for a while. Heidi’s cooking classes aren’t just classes, there are lessons about life too. The Seekers was a good book because the author kept the pages turning and let the readers have a look at each student’s life as well as the teacher’s life.
Recommended for: Anyone who likes books with romance, mystery, and Amish all rolled into one.
