wanda-brunstetter-mugWanda E. Brunstetter’s The Restoration (Shiloh Run Press/Barbour Publishing) earned the No. 1 spot on both the February Publishers Weekly Religion Fiction best-seller list and on the March Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA) list. The Restoration is the conclusion of Brunstetter’s "Prairie State Friends" trilogy.

Mary A. Burns, vice president of marketing for Barbour Books, said The Restoration’s story and message drove sales.

The Revelation, along with the first two books in the series, The Decision and The Gift, have touched readers, not only with compelling stories of love lost and found but with two more elements that enrich Wanda’s stories,” Burns said. “Those two elements are the real-life challenges her characters have to face and Wanda’s skill at conveying how faith is the bedrock that enables them to cope, make decisions and find fulfillment in their lives.”

Brunstetter said she appreciated her readers’ support.

“I would like to thank my readers for their support of this series,” Brunstetter said. “When an author pours her heart into her stories, as I did these three, it is particularly rewarding.”

Brunstetter’s latest novel, releasing this month, is The English Son, the launch book in her six-part serial novel she co-wrote with her daughter-in-law Jean Brunstetter. The second story, The Stubborn Father, will be an April release.
