An Amish Wedding
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 was a delight to read and I enjoyed this book more then I expected to. Out of the three authors I had only read Beth Wiseman in the past but all three did a great job telling there portion of the story. I loved how all three stories were interconnected and how each other was able to write their own portion in their own style.
This is a great book for anyone who loves Amish fiction! I loved how it was broken into three stories because it gave great stopping points when I was busy. I would recommend this book to everyone since the stories are just fun and light hearted. Way to go Beth Wiseman, Kelly Long and Kathleen Fuller on a fun and enjoyable story.
