    If you've read any Amish fiction at all I'm sure you've heard of the author, Wanda Brunstetter.She is one of the first authors to write the genre and an absolute go to author for me when she releases a new book. I've read almost all of her books and she is not slowing down at all. Her books get better and better with each one she releases!This is the third and I do believe final book in the Prayer Jars series because it answers all the questions ...

    I’m surprised that I enjoyed this book as much as I did. I’m truly a thriller/horror girl here but this was a nice change for me. I’ve not read this author before and would try another one by her if a change was needed. I really liked her style of writing.

    When Jesse and his young daughter move to their community, Lenore falls in love with the motherless child. She gets her chance at love, but will Jesse be able to move past his love for his first wife to give Cindy the mother she needs? Threads of the story focus on Sara's pursuit of finding her biological father and Michelle's move with husband Ezekiel to New York. I haven't read the earlier books in this series, but I feel certain they provide a...

    The best book in the series!! Oh my there is a lot of action in this story!!And a lot of topy turvies too!!I loved loved this book!! Wanda is truly an amazing storyteller. When I read one of her books I was hooked!I think the character I can most identify with is poor Michelle!!I've been in her place but eveveryrhing does work out. I also think that Trust is the main theme here. We need to trust God that He will work things out if it is His will....

    This is the third book in the trilogy and it was wonderful. Even though this book deals with Willis and his declining health, there are many happy occasions in the book. Sara who joined the Amish life after meeting her grandparents, discovers the identity of her father through a message found in the healing jar. Lenore moves in with her grandparents and finds love with Jesse whose wife died in childbirth.

    This is the third book in The Prayer Jars series, and although it can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading the full series in order as there is story and character development that occurs with all three of the books. The series centers around 3 young ladies that all call MaryRuth grandma, whether through blood or love.Lenore Lapp is our main character in this series. She has moved in with her grandparents due to her grandfather's stroke. ...

    The Healing Jar by Wanda E. Brunstetter is book three in her The Prayer Jars series. The novel is part of a series but the author has done a good job of making it a standalone, giving ample background on the characters and the story so far. Lenore Lapp is an Amish schoolteacher. She’s single and lives with her grandparents. Jesse Smucker is an Amish widower with a six-month-old daughter, Cindy. He’s just moved to the area to get a fresh start...

    I am the first to admit that Amish fiction is not my favorite as so many of the books all sound the same. But Brunstetter has done a wonderful job of creating a series that has different twists from the normal Amish fiction. This last book was my favorite as she wound up several threads that had started in Book 1.The growing relationship between Lenore and Jessie was nicely developed. Throw in Jesse's adorable baby daughter, Cindy, and you defini...

    Another great read by Wanda about Faith, Love, Family and Tragedy!! This book and series taught me that always keep good faith in good times and bad. As well as always believe in love and to keep your family close. Wish this series would continue but glad all the loose ends with the characters were tied up and Lenore and Jesse found happieness in the end!!!

    I enjoyed this quick read, and loved that we are reunited and continue with the lives of the characters in the previous books, and conclude their stories.This one is cousin Lenore, a young woman who care deeply for others, and especially her grandparents that she lives with and helps.Throughout this story you wonder if Jesse will do right by Lenore, or will the new man in the community win her heart. I loved how conclusions and updates were made ...

    I laughed and cried through the whole book! It opens with Sara and Brad getting married. Michelle and Ezekiel have been married for a while Michelle longs for a bay and wonders why it hasn't happened yet. Lenore wonders if she will ever get married or spend her life single and teaching school.Lenore moved in with her grandparents because Grandpa Lapp had a stroke. She was helping around the farm and helping to take care of her grandfather. He was...

    Thank you to Barbour Publishing, Inc, via Netgalley for the opportunity to read/review the ARC of The Healing Jar by Wanda E. Brunstetter.I am in love with Amish reads. That said, I particularly love all Amish reads by Wanda Brunstetter. She is an amazing author, always staying true to her followers. I am not Amish, and sometimes am not even sure what I believe. Wanda's books are soothing. They do not force religion on anyone, they are just about...

    A conclusion to The Prayer Jars trilogy, Wanda Brunstetter’s “The Healing Jar” neatly weaves together the characters and outcomes of the first two books while continuing and ultimately ending the saga. As such, it is best to read this series in order for a full understanding of the background and a richer reading experience. This is a good series for those who may be new to the Amish fiction genre because the Pennsylvania Dutch words are de...

    Healing VersesThis is the third and final book of the series. I enjoyed reading all three books but I really loved The Healing Jar book the most. Each book in the series focuses on one character with all the same characters and new ones throughout all three books. The series should be read in order so to keep up with what is going on with all the characters. After Lenore Lapp’s grandfather suffered a stroke, she moves in to help her grandmother...

    ...my thoughts...The long awaited conclusion to Wanda E. Brunstetter's series, The Prayer Jars, is here! The Healing Jar is Lenore's story. One day in the barn, she found the long hidden prayer jar, and found solace in the words tucked inside. The mystery of this jar and another, found on a shelf in the dark basement, piqued the interests first of Michelle, then Sara. Now Lenore sits in wonder at these words that seem to coincide with her own tho...

    THE HEALING JAR by Wanda E. Brunstetter is #3 in The Prayer Jars series and is a continuation of THE FORGIVING JAR #2 in the series. Although THE HEALING JAR can be read as a standalone, I recommend first reading THE HOPE JAR and THE FORGIVING JAR by Wanda E. Brunstetter. This sweet, heartwarming novel set in a small community in Pennsylvania, will tug at your heartstrings. A young school teacher feels that she is destined to miss out on love and...

    First I must comment that the summation here to entice you to read the book is not quite accurate. It's okay but Lenore does not quickly fall in love nor finds the jar right away either. In all honesty this was my least favorite book of the three. There is a lot going on as all the series characters have portions of this story. Each couple has significant life changes going on. Mary Ruth and Willis are experiencing the natural decline and health ...

    This is the 3rd book in the series of the Prayer Jar. Like always I loved the story and was not disappointed. Must be the favorite of the three, maybe because of questions finally answered. Yet I found it too hard to put it down with each page turned there was always a surprise. This is the story of the granddaughter of our sweet friends Willis and Mary Ruth Lapp. Daughter of their son. And even though it had a sad part in the story which I hoped...

    Fans of Ms Brunstetter will really enjoy the third and final book in the Prayer Jar series.Michelle, Lenore and Sara have all learned things by opening up and reading some of the scriptures from the jars. What they did not know is who was the person responsible for filling up these jars. That answer will be revealed in this final book. We will also learn some very interesting and important facts that will bring together some much-needed answers.B...

    The third in the series, the author gives us another wonderful book that you can’t put down. We once again see characters from the previous two books, Mary Ruth, Willis, Michelle, Sara, and this one centers on Lenore, who is helping her grandparents. She is teaching school and wondering she will every find love within the community since she is older than many of the Amish girls when they marry. Newly widowed Jesse and his baby daughter, Cindy,...

    won this via Goodreads giveaways in exchange for an honest review. All my opinions are my own.----The healing jar by far has become one of my favorite books this year. It's such a touching store, I laughed, cried, want to smack some characters silly.I regret not reading the first two books first, but I plan on rectifying that asap, the store is about a young Amish woman who just wants to find her special someone and settle down. And an Amish wido...

    “The Healing Jar” by Wanda Brunstetter is the third book in The Prayer Jar series. I enjoyed the first two books in the series but each book is a also a standalone. It is helpful to have read the first two books since many of the characters carryover but Brunstetter is a master of giving a short background on important characters. The Healing Jar is the story of Lenore Lapp, an Amish schoolteacher living with her grandparents after a her belo...

    The Healing Jar by Wanda E. Brunstetter was very well written. All the characters were very relatable and loveable, especially Lenore. It told a great story about love, healing and finally forgiveness. I do feel that the story started off slow until the middle of the book when everything started coming together quickly for all of the characters in the book. Other than that it was great read. I do recommend reading the other books in the series to...

    Lenore has moved in with her grandparents to help her grandparents Willis and Mary Ruth. She’s also preparing to start a new schoolyear as the teacher in their community. We see Ben and Sara, Ezekiel and Michelle as well as some other townspeople, including newcomer Jesse and his daughter Cindy. Healing is the topic of this book and deals with more than one person needing healing. Lovely story with likleable characters that grow close throughou...
