Review: The Hope Jar by:Wanda E. Brunstetter

 The Hope Jar (The Prayer Jars #1)
**Disclosure**This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

About the Book:
A Brand-New 3-Book Series from New York Times Bestselling Author Wanda E. Brunstetter.
What happens when making an elderly Amish couple very happy means going along with a lie that gets bigger by the day?

Michelle Taylor is not who her new family in Lancaster County believes her to be. The Lapps were looking for their long-lost granddaughter when they met Michelle and she assumed the identity of Sara Murray. Once homeless and hopeless, Michelle has come to love her new Amish friends and even considers the idea of romance among them.

Finding an old blue jar in the barn that is filled with slips of paper containing thoughts, quotes, and prayers by an unknown author becomes a boost to Michelle’s budding faith— but also convicting. How can she tell the truth without hurting the ones she has truly come to love?


My Review:
 Talking about a con artist. Michelle Taylor assumes the life and role of a girl by the name of Sara Murray. Sara being Amish proves to be a good fit for Michelle. The Amish, their lifestyle and all they have to offer seem to come at the best time for Michelle. She is trying to escape a devastating set of circumstances ones in which, there seem to be no escape or so she thought. She was able to become Sara and the Lapps believe her. But soon conviction gets the best of her and she starts contemplating telling them the truth.

 Its not long before Michelle assumes the role of Sara that some young men become interested. Thats all great and everything but what will they do when they find out they are being deceived? Michelle has a lot of explaining to do and she needs to act quickly because her whole story seems to be falling a part. The Hope Jar is based on a little jar of hope that Michelle finds. It is this jar that will set her free on so many levels.

 A great summertime read!
