Woman of Courage by Wanda E Brunstetter

Amanda Pearson is a Quaker and after her broken engagement, she asks her father if she can travel west to be with missionaries. She wants to bring the word of God to the Native Americans.  Her father doesn’t want her to go alone so he accompanies her and they both head to the Oregon Territory. They are exposed to all sorts of people and things on their journey including Native Americans, wild animals and hardships.

When she gets lost, she is rescued by a mountain man and is introduced to his friend’s wife who is Native American.  Amanda becomes friends with the wife and introduces her to God’s word.  She finds herself attracted to the man who rescued her but questions whether they can be together because he’s not a Christian. Throughout Amanda’s journey, she learns a lot about herself and becomes a more self confident, mature woman.

I loved following Amanda on her journey.  The author includes so many wonderful details that it was very easy to really get lost in the story. This is the first book I have read by Wanda E Brunstetter.  She normally writes Amish fiction so this one is a bit different because they are Quaker and not Amish. However, if her other books are anywhere near as interesting as this one, I will definitely be reading more. Woman of Courage by Wanda E Brunstetter is definitely a must read for anyone who loves Christian fiction.

  1. I lived among Amish neighbors growing up in Ohio country but have always wanted to learn more about Quakers too. We had a disciplined upbringing and couldn’t even wear pants in school when younger.
