White Christmas Pie Book Review

I got another book through the wrapped books at the library and I am almost to the end of the Christmas books.  White Christmas Pie by Wanda E. Brunstetter was the next book in my pile.  I was looking forward to it but it was certainly an older looking picture on the front of the book and it was also one that seemed to be barely available to buy through Amazon and third party sellers so I knew that it was going to be an earlier book in whatever series it might go with.  I was ready to read it regardless so I picked it up when it was the next book in my pile.

Step into Amish country for this bittersweet holiday romance. Here you'll meet Will Henderson, a young man tortured by his past, and Karen Yoder, a young woman looking for answers. Add a desperate father searching for his son, and you have all the ingredients for a first-class romance that will inspire and enthrall.

The summary online was not a great summary and it is probably because it is not sold as readily.  The back of the book says Will Henderson, abandoned by his father sixteen years ago and left in the care of an Amish couple, has joined the Amish church and is about to marry Karen Yoder.  But as Will contemplates marriage and potential fatherhood, he wonders will he eventually destroy his family as his father did his? Karen Yoder can't break through the barrier her finance has suddenly constructed around his heart.  When she seeks the advice of an old boyfriend, Will begins to see green.  Is there a chance there won't be a December Wedding after all?  Riddled with guilt and shame over abandoning his son, Frank Henderson sinks into depression.  As he begins to search for Will, he wonders if there is anything he can do to make it right.  When Will's life is threatened, the strength of blood ties is put to the test. Can Will find it in his heart to forgive his father and marry the woman he loves? Can an old recipe for White Christmas Pie contain the truth that sets him free?

The book was about Will dealing with his demons and trying to get over the hurt of the past.  It was brought out worse when he say other children that were abandoned by their parents.  He had a large chip on his shoulder even though he was raised by a wonderful mom and dad.  He had grown to be 22 years old and was about to be married when everything changed.  He had to get over the hurts of the past to make a life for his future.  Is he going to stay with the Amish or move back to the English world?  You have to pick up the book to find out what happens for yourself.  I hope that you check out this book and enjoy it as much as I have.  I was happy with the final outcome of the book and I really liked to watch the changes in Will.
