An Amish Wedding by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller & Kelly Long
Three Amish women yearn for the perfect wedding.
"A Perfect Plan" by Beth Wiseman
Priscilla King has been planning to marry Chester Lapp since she was sixteen years old, and when Chester proposes on Priscilla's nineteenth birthday, wedding plans begin immediately. What wasn't planned was all the problems the couple encounters as their big day approaches. A house disaster, a ruined wedding dress, and a sick attendant all make the couple wonder if God's sending them signs to call things off.
"The Perfect Match" by Kathleen Fuller
Naomi Fisher has had great success at matchmaking her family members and friends. Now with her sister's wedding right around the corner, Naomi wonders why she's able to find husbands for her friends and family, but not one for herself.
"The Perfect Secret" by Kelly Long
Rose Bender has recently become engaged to handsome but somber Luke Raber. She agrees out of a sense of duty and a willingness to settle for solid friendship as a basis for the engagement. But as she watches her friend's excitement over her soon-to-be wedding, Rose wonders if there shouldn't be more to her relationship with Luke. She begins to examine Luke and his life more closely and is amazed when she stumbles upon an exciting, secret side of him that engages her mind and heart.
This is the first time I read anything by this author and must say that I really enjoyed this novella. A great book for reading groups or anyone that enjoys a good touching Amish or Christian romance. I highly recommend this novella.
This book is a collection of three Amish novellas written by three different authors.
Each story is linked together in the same time period of about four weeks and involves the same three friends.
This book was a quick easy read, I loved the characters and especially enjoyed the interaction of the same people in each of the stories.
I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their Book Review Blogger program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
