An Amish Wedding

I recently finished reading "An Amish Wedding", three novellas written by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, and Kelly Long.  This is the second book of short stories that I have read by these 3 wonderful authors.  Just like the first, "An Amish Love", I loved the easy read and flow of these stories.  I love that there are 3 separate stories but that you find familiar characters throughout.

The first story was fun as you follow Rose through her engagement to Luke, a long time friend who suits her perfectly but seems boring.  Deep inside Rose is wanting more in the adventure and romance department.  As you follow Rose through her journey you discover that there is more to Luke than meets the eye.

The second story was a story of being open to love at the right time.  Naomi and Zeke are both a little "old" to be single by Amish standards but neither has found the right person.  Naomi is always busy trying to take care of others and too busy for love but she can't deny the feelings she has for Zeke.  This story gives insight to love working it's magic to teach a couple of "old dogs" new tricks.

In the third story you follow Priscilla and Chester as they navigate through endless obstacles trying to reach the alter.  I enjoyed this story because you learn a lot about marriage in the Amish culture and how their traditions vary from big elaborate weddings we see in most cultures.

This book made my heart smile and I would recommend it to anybody looking for a quick and easy read full of love of God, love of family, and true love.

This book was provided to me at no charge by in exchange for my honest review.
