Book Review for An Amish Wedding by Kelly Long, Kathleen Fuller and Beth Wiseman

An Amish Wedding
Kelly Long, Kathleen Fuller and Beth Wiseman
Christian Fiction – Amish












Book description: 

Priscilla King has dreamed of being married to Chester Lapp since she was sixteen. With the help of her sister Naomi's matchmaking skills, Chester proposes to Priscilla on her nineteenth birthday. As the wedding day approaches, problems emerge: an attendant with poison ivy, a failed celery crop, and a torn wedding dress.

At the same time, Priscilla's best friend Rose is convinced her fiancé is hiding something and she is intent on discovering the truth at any cost.

Naomi remains hopeful that she, too, will soon find her perfect match. When Chester's cousin shows up, there's an immediate attraction between him and Naomi-as well as an obstacle that may just as immediately derail their blossoming love.

Is God sending a message to stop the wedding? What is certain is that the hearts of these three women will be forever transformed by this touching Amish wedding.

My thoughts: 

I am always a bit skeptical about books that have multiple authors writing about the same storyline. In most cases they just do not gel very well. There usually seems to be some glaring glitch from one story to the next.

With An Amish Wedding, I think we may have an exception to this trend. There are three novellas, A Perfect Secret by Kelly Long, A Perfect Match by Kathleen Fuller and A Perfect Plan by Beth Wiseman.  Each story features a couple, with the couples from the other two stories being background characters.

One thing that I did like about this book was that the main author, Beth Wiseman, did not overshadow the other two. Kelly Long and Kathleen Fuller’s stories held their own against Ms. Wiseman’s. Each part of the book had its own voice, and I enjoyed that.

For a delightful journey into the divergent world of the Amish, pick this one up!

  1. Nice blog. As a lover of books you might be interested in the word play involved in cryptic crosswords. I am doing a series of posts on solving cryptic clues. This was the first one I did. http://caroleschatter.blogspot.co.nz/2012/01/cryptic-crosswords-solving-hints-1.html Hope you enjoy.
