An Amish Wedding by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, and Kelly Long
Priscilla, Naomi, and Rose are all friends with one thing in common. They desire to marry, but that ultimate goal may just elude them.
Priscilla has her man; but the planned upon wedding of her dreams? Not so much. Naomi, hasn't yet found that special someone to share her life with. However, with her sister's nuptials looming, will all of that change? Meanwhile, Rose cherishes the childhood friendship she's cultivated with her fiancee Luke, but will it ever grow into the kind of relationship she truly longs for?
The three authors made this an easy read and one that I was able to breeze through with a feeling of enjoyment throughout. Getting to know each couple separately while also watching their stories intertwine, was a fun twist. Kind of like reading the same book from three different point's of view. For fans of the authors or Amish genre, this should be a home run. The Amish lifestyle is an interesting one, especially when seen through the eyes of young couples about to wed. An Amish Wedding allows us "Englischers" the chance to slow down and appreciate a culture unlike our own, where modern frills are shunned in favor of traditional practices. And who doesn't like a bit of escapism every now and then?
I received a complimentary review copy of this book from Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for my honest opinion.
