Sara arrived at the Lapp farm for the first time, she was shocked to find a woman impersonating her Sara has no tolerance for people who lie, deceive and keep secrets since she learned of her mother s secrets When Sara arrives at the farm, she is surprised to see Michelle Taylor, the imposter, is once again living with Willis and Mary Ruth Lapp Her grandparents tell Sara that Michelle returned to explain her actions and apologized to them They have forgiven Michelle and invited her to live with them Sara does not understand how they can easily forgive Michelle s deception Sara moves into the farmhouse and struggles to live with Michelle She meets Brad Fuller, a theological student, when he visits at Christmas who had met Michelle the previous summer Sara is drawn to Brad and she can tell he is attracted to her However, Brad seems to keep his distance which confuses Sara One day Sara finds an old canning jar in the cellar filled with slips of paper Each slip has a different Bible verse or inspirational message These messages provide Sara with encouragement and hope Can Sara find a way to overcome her mother s deceptions as well as Michelle s Is forgiveness in Sara s future Come along for Sara s journey in The Forgiving Jar.The Forgiving Jar is the second book in The Prayer Jar series While The Forgiving Jar could be read as a standalone, I suggest reading The Hope Jar first It will provide you with Michelle s complete story and help you understand her motivations I thought The Forgiving Jar was well written with gentle pacing I did find the story to be a little slow in the middle I was drawn into the story and wanted to find out what would happen with Sara and Michelle Sara has a hard time grappling with the concept of forgiveness Her mother kept secrets from her and then Michelle impersonated her Sara has trust issues and does not understand how her grandparents can easily forgive Michelle for her deception We get to see how the slips of paper in an old canning jar help Sara understand the importance of forgiveness and being a Christian The slips in the canning jar were encouraging, inspirational, guiding and thought provoking With Michelle and Sara living in the same household, it is rife with tension Mary Ruth talks with Sara about the issue After that, Mary Ruth prays and leaves the issue in God s hands There is romance in the story as Michelle and Ezekiel King draw closer to each other One of my favorite phrases was turn your cares into prayers I did have trouble with Sara She has a giant chip on her shoulder plus she is extremely resentful of Michelle As time goes by, Sara along with Michelle mature I liked seeing the women evolve, learn from their mistakes and grow in their faith I look forward to reading The Healing Jar when it comes out The Forgiving Jar is a sweet, heartwarming story that will touch your heart flag 3 likesLike see review Jan 24, 2019 Molly Jaber Cover To Cover Cafe rated it it was amazing Shelves 2019

forgiving and grace Sara and Brad s characters are tenderly chiseled together to create a few sparks of romance blooming within the book, and Michelle s characterwell, let me say that at first, I wanted to hate her, for assuming a life that wasn t her own But, through the words of Ms Brunstetter, through the forgiving grace of God, I was able to see why she did it, and much like the story line suggests, and forgive her for it, the same as if she truly did it to me The way Ms Brunstetter makes me feel at the end of the book, like she wrote solely for me which, of course, I know she did not but that s how good her writing is , has once again left me ready for her next book in the series so I can feel this way again The Forgiving Jar is a tender story, one that makes the reader sit and reflect about forgiving and letting go of the pain and the past, and focus on the here and now Anything less than a 5 star praise for this book, would not be doing it justice Well done, Ms Brunstetter

setting I ve always liked reading Amish stories, and the book definitely showcased the Amish lifestyle.What I Didn t Like The main characters seem really pouty and spoiled at times, which really irritated me Most of the side characters, claiming to be Christian, were really unforgiving and annoying, and I found it unrealistic that they suddenly decided to forgive Michelle after one random thing she did And the two characters who were forgiving towards Michelle forgave her a little too easily I certainly think a good amount of balance could have been employed in this story.Overall Definitely not my favorite by Mrs Brunstetter I do think I would ve liked the book a little better if not for the annoying characters 1.5 stars FTC DISCLOSURE I received a free ecopy of this book from

them They forgave her and invited her to stay with them again until she gets back on her feet She is determined to get a job and earn money to pay back the cash she borrowed from their stash when she left.Sara returns to stay at her grandparents home as her job has ended, and she hopes to find one near their home so she can get to know them She finds Michelle in the barn, stunned and angry that she is there again Certain Michelle is going to try to get something from them, Sara wants her far away from her grandparents She refuses to forgive the deception Michelle acted out When the Lapps arrive at home, they find their beloved granddaughter Sara talking about leaving, and unable to understand how they could forgive Michelle.Sara is a bitter young woman who feels people have lied to her all their lives She is unforgiving, even of her late mother, for keeping her away from her grandparents and her birth father She won t even try to get along with Michelle When in the basement of the house one day, she finds a jar full of scripture verses and quotes that someone has saved Curious, she reads a couple, and returns than once to see what she will find in it Sara doesn t believe in God, however, certain that if God exists, He would care about her, listen to her prayers, even answer them It takes than one crisis and a deception of her own, before she is willing to listen hear what Michelle might have to share with her and begin to understand forgiveness.Sara is the primary focus of The Forgiving Jar, even though we do see the continuous changes in Michelle s life Both young women are described well, as are the Lapps Sara was easy to have empathy for when realizing that I have struggled with some of the same emotions Mary Ruth and Willis, being faithful people of prayer, continue to bring the situation before the Lord It will be like meeting a new person if the writer of scriptures and quotes in the prayer jars is revealed Forgiving others is a focus for several people in this novel I have had to look at my own history of forgiving others, and how often I think the slate is clean until remembering a person or event This delightful yet serious novel is a lesson in many ways There are twists in the plot, some sweet and some not as sweet, that truly make the story what it is I highly recommend this to fans of the author and of well written Amish

exchange for an honest review I have recently developed a love for Amish fiction, and have spent many hours reading about the culture and its beliefs Having said this, The Forgiving Jar, while pure and wholesome at its thematic core, unfortunately fell short to me everywhere else.On the positive side, I did appreciate the heart behind the novel I also have to put a disclaimer out that I did not read the first book in this series I received a free copy from Netgalley, and was unaware that it was a series However, having said this, I have still written my review with that in mind I also need to note that this review is simply why I was as disappointed with this novel I do not wish to insult the author, her character, or the publisher.To begin with my first issue was with the characters Unfortunately, I felt no connection to any of them Sara and Michelle were impossible to tell apart I frequently had to check back, even up into the last chapters of the book, on whose point of view I was reading I couldn t keep them straight Actually, the only difference that I can think of between the two of them is that Michelle became a Christian first To be honest, I found them both annoying They constantly contradicted themselves and never really seemed to understand anything or empathize with anyone The only time I saw any emotion is when Rascal, Michelle s dog, dies, but even that was nearly impossible to connect with I didn t care for Michelle and subsequently not for her dog To elaborate in the beginning, Sara explains nonchalantly how, As a child, she had envied other kids whose grandparents doted on them Her stepfather s parents lived in Canada, and they traveled a lotUnfortunately, on one of their trips, they d been killed when their plane crashed So she had grown up with no grandparents at all Loc 138 This is simply stated like it s just another everyday thing, without any sort of emotion attached to it.Later, after Sara s stepdad dies, she narrates about her brother, Kenny s graduation had taken place last week, and even though he still missed his dad, he d been in an upbeat mood Sara knew it was because, thanks to the inheritance he d recieved in September, Kenny would be attending the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia loc 3453 When I relayed these course of events to my brother, he said, Sounds like they killed off their father so they could get the money Though this is not explicitly spelled out, it would be very easy to make that inference based on the lack of emotion in the characters and, of course, the convenient way they come into a sum of money upon their dad s death.Moving on Mary Ruth and Willis were sickeningly perfect All Mary Ruth did was pray and cook food, and I didn t see her or Willis do so much as think a slightly off thought throughout the entire book My main problem with this was that this was the first impression readers have of Christianity in the novel.Generally, I was constantly confused as to what had happened with whom, and who was connected to whom, and whose family was whose I had great difficulty keeping everything straight Characters would often would randomly appear and disappear, without any strong clues as to who they were, where they came from, or their purpose in the story.The plot was full of filler scenes and fluff that I saw no purpose to I had trouble following the plot Similarly, the conflict was hard to identify and felt hollow Many scenes felt pointless and not thought out at all For example, in one scene, Ezekiel, Michelle s beau, climbs on Sara s roof to write a message in the frost for Michelle, telling her to go to the barn where he is waiting to surprise her Later, Sara couldn t help feelingjealous of Michelle Her boyfriend cared so much about herhe had risked life and limb to leave Michelle a message on Grandma and Grandpa s frosty roof this morning Loc 2623 To which I say that s not love, that s immaturity That s not risking your life for love as the book implied that s making a fool of yourself to look good Further, throughout the story were scattered random dramatic events that go nowhere In one scene, Sara or was it Michelle witnesses a car accident and there s all this drama then it s never spoken of again My main frustration with this novel, though, is how it seemed to believe that Amish and Christian are interchangeable terms In actuality, they are very different The Amish and Christian churches definitely have similar beliefs, but they are not interchangeable, which is why all the characters becoming saved through the Amish church really bothered me Yes, the Amish can find the saving grace of Jesus anyone can, after all but the Amish church has some core differences from the Christian church You can totally have an Amish character who finds Jesus but a character does not get saved simply by becoming Amish.Overall, I found this book to be a rough read, much to my dismay The characters were flat and hollow, the plot was full of fluff that left me skimming chapters, and the message about Christianity was off center Not a read I would recommend flag 1 likeLike see review Jan 25, 2019 Pam Mooney rated it it was amazing I love this author and
