Overview

Bestselling authors Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould offer readers The Amish Bride, Book 3 in the Women of Lancaster County series, which tells the stories of young Plain women as they explore their roots, connect with family, and discover true love.

Ella Bayer and Ezra Gundy are in love and hope to marry someday, but she is a young Mennonite woman while he is an Amish man. Though both Plain, one of them will have to forsake what they believe to embrace another way of life.

Hoping some distance will cool the relationship, Ezra's family sends him to work at an Amish dairy farm in Indiana. But Ella disregards what her family wants and follows Ezra. In short order she finds a place to live, a job in a bakery, and an unexpected but budding friendship with a handsome Amish farmhand, Luke. When a family tragedy forces Ella back to Pennsylvania, she must face all she's been running away from. And once she has made peace with those around her, she has an important decision to make: Whose Amish bride will she become--Ezra's or Luke's?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Though the Amish and the Mennonites are both "plain" people, they cannot marry each other. That is the problem facing Ella Bayer, a young Mennonite woman, and Ezra Grundy, an Amish man. Ezra's father sends him to Indiana to work on an Amish farm and, disregarding her own family's wishes, Ella follows him. She finds a job in a bakery and becomes friends with an Amish farm worker, Luke. When tragedy strikes, Ella travels home and makes peace with her family. Now all that's left to decide is whether she will marry Ezra or Luke. VERDICT Clark and Gould have penned a story with fully developed characters and a strong sense of place that should engage readers of Beverly Lewis and fans of the series (The Amish Midwife; The Amish Nanny).

    This third book in the series skips along like an afternoon with a good friend. Ella is a teenager we can all relate to who is choosing the woman she wants to be. Clark and Gould masterfully weave a story that I completely invested in so when the climax came with such a surprise my heart missed a beat and I was there with this family struggling to find their way in God's greater plan. Another quietly inspiring triumph for the authors.

    Highly recommended

    If you like Beverly Lewis and Wanda Brunstetter you will like Mindy Starns Clark. She also writes about Amish/Mennonite life but with a mystery intertwined into the plot which revolves around one or more of her characters in her story plot. The Amish Bride deals with a strong willed older teen who thinks she knows what she wants out of life and what she wants in a husband and is convinced that Ezra is the man for her. But life has a way of getting in the way of what we want, just as it did with Ella and she was forced to move to Indiana where she learned God's will for her and realized that perhaps she didn't know as much as she thought she did. This is a great read for anyone...but if you have a teen in your life, this might be a good book for him or her to read.

    I love this series by Mindy Starns Clark. Beginning with Amish Midwife, Amish Nanny, then this one. I could not put the book down. It keeps you always wondering how the story will turn. I can't wait until the next one. I love this author.
