Description

Three best-selling authors. Three possible brides. Three separate tales. They come together for an Amish wedding.

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.

    An Amish WeddingBeth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, & Kelly LongThis is a book with interlinking stories about 3 Amish woman written by 3 authors. The first story is about a couple that has known each other their entire lives and are planning to marry. Along the way they discover some secrets about each other and that knowing things about each other is a good basis for building a relationship. The second story is about a young woman who has waited on the Lord to lead her to the man she is to marry. This man is brought into her life story takes off from there. The third story is about a couple that is engaged to marry and all the mishaps that occur on the way to the alter. The three stories were pleasantly enjoyable. I found the first story to be my favorite of the three. I did like the 2nd and 3rd, which were easy reads. The entire book was well written and each story was links throughout the book. The majority of the characters were in each story and was interwoven to the point that you could not tell that they were written by three authors.

    "An Amish Wedding" consists of three novellas by three different authors set in the same Amish community and focusing on three young Amish women who have dreams of falling in love and having the perfect Amish wedding.A Perfect Secret - Kelly LongRose Bender and Luke Lantz have known each other their entire lives and it is almost inevitable that they will marry. Rose cares for Luke but wishes there was more excitement in their relationship. Rose gets her wish when she discovers Luke may have a secret side to him. But will Rose's attempts to discover Luke's secret ruin their relationship?"A Perfect Secret" is a very cute romance about two people who have loved each other for so long that their relationship almost seems stale. I like the fact that both Rose and Luke push at some of the Amish conventions without doing any real damage. The plot does seem a bit unbelievable (surely Luke should have realized Rose saw through his "disguise" and the reasons for donning the disguise were a bit contrived) but it was still a lot of fun to read as these two friends discover the depths of their love.A Perfect Match - Kathleen FullerWhile Naomi King is excited her sister Priscilla is getting married, she herself has no desire to get married after having her heart broken. Zeke Lapp, in Paradise for his cousin Chester's wedding, has been chased by young women for years but still hasn't fallen in love. When Naomi and Zeke meet sparks fly between them but Naomi thinks Zeke will be perfect for her friend Margaret. Can Zeke convince her they are A Perfect Match?"A Perfect Match" is another cute story. The attraction between Zeke and Naomi is evident from the start and it is fun to watch them together. I do wish the background story of Naomi and David has been built up a bit more but it is still clear that she's been deeply hurt. While there are immediate sparks between the two, author Kathleen Fuller still lets the romance develop slowly (or as slowly as possible in a novella). It is a very nice romance and I hope to see more of Naomi and Zeke in future books by Fuller.A Perfect Plan - Beth WisemanPriscilla King has long dreamed of having the perfect wedding when she marries Chester Lapp. But as the wedding day approaches everything seems to go wrong from problems with their new house, a wedding attendant with poison ivy, problems with Chester's job, and an embarrassing case of hiccups for Priscilla. Priscilla loves Chester but with all these obstacles she begins to wonder if their wedding is really part of God's plan.While "A Perfect Plan" is a nice ending to this trilogy of novellas and fits in perfectly with the other stories, I do wish is a way that it was a stand alone novel so readers could read more about Priscilla and Chester's courtship - instead this story takes place after they get together and are almost married. Still, it is a nice little story and Priscilla's pre-wedding jitters will be understandable to anyone who is or was a bride to be. Nothing that happens to them seems to be too contrived and is very believable. Of the three stories and authors, Wiseman does the best in showing Amish customs (the wedding itself and how much the Englisch world keeps creeping into the Amish lifestyle - many Amish carry cell phones now). It is very interesting to read (and again another reason I wish this was a full length novel as there is clearly an ongoing struggle as to how much of the Englisch world is let into the Amish way of life)."An Amish Wedding" is a delightful collection of related novellas that fans of Amish fiction will enjoy.

    A Perfect Plan" by Beth Wiseman

    Out of the three this was my favorite.

    Priscilla King has been planning to marry Chester Lapp since she was sixteen years old and as the wedding approaches she gets the hick up and things seem to go wrong. This is how she deals with these obstaclesa and seeks God to confirm that she is doing the right things. Very enjoyeable.
