The Selfless Act (The Amish Millionaire #6) by Wanda E. Brunstetter & Jean Brunstetter

The Selfless Act (The Amish Millionaire #6)ABOUT THE BOOK

Join New York Times Bestselling author Wanda E. Brunstetter along with Jean Brunstetter in Holmes County for the conclusion to the dramatic new 6-part serial novel. 

Meet businessman Joel Byler who has gotten himself into a financial bind and his eccentric, wealthy Amish father who is done bailing out his spoiled son. When will Joel learn he most pay for his own mistakes—and at what cost to his business, his fiancĂ©e, and his Amish siblings?

The Selfless Act by Wanda E. Brunstetter
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"When his prayer was finished, Joel stood, holding the Bible against his chest. The seed that had been planted when he'd attended the Amish church with his parents and siblings had finally taken root."

This scene is from the last book in The Amish Millionaire series and finally Joel Byler becomes the man that his father always hoped he would be. In the first five books of this series Joel Byler has been selfish, deceptive, disagreeable, and downright unlovable and it has been very hard for me to like him. Time after time he has ignored the teachings of his Amish upbringing and allowed himself to be swayed by his overpowering need for material possessions. It is only after he tries unsuccessfully, time after time, to perform a selfless act that will satisfy the requirements of his deceased father's will that Joel finally understands where his true wealth lies. When he humbles himself and asks for help Joel finally receives the ultimate gift of forgiveness and redemption.

Authors Wanda E. Brunstetter and Jean Brunstetter have written a great conclusion for The Amish Millionaire series and I recommend The Selfless Act to all fans of Amish fiction.
