Overview

An Amish Wedding by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Kelly Long

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.

Three short stories set in an Amish community, the book tells the sweet stories of three couples. Along with the romance and conflict, there were lessons of faith woven throughout. I like the way how the three stories are different yet the characters all intertwined, giving a common backdrop. I also liked learning a bit of the Amish culture, and now it makes me want to visit one. While the stories are a bit simplistic and the endings fairytale-ish, there is nothing wrong with getting away from the high drama, violence and sex themes of what you usually see in media entertainment nowadays. Again the description I would give is sweet: sweet characters, sweet storyline, everything about it is nice and sweet! Disclosure: Thomas Nelson provided me with a complimentary copy of this book for this review. Opinions are entirely my own.

Three Amish women yearn for the perfect wedding. In the first story "A Perfect Plan" by Beth Wiseman, Prisilla King is faced with so many distractions as she plans her wedding with Chester Lapp. She becomes a doubting Thomas and is afraid all these things are bad omen which is not in her belief. She pray for God's will be done if she is to marry Chester. Fear is our enemy it can cause us to be blinded to God's will. I rate this story a five out of five. In the second story "The Perfect Match" by Kathleen Fuller, Naomi Fisher has a gift for matchmaking. But this gift does not work for herself. She fears will be an old maid never to marry. But the tables turn on her when she is trying to be a matchmaker for a friend and a so called best man that is in town for her sisters wedding. She seemed to think her will was greater than God's will. II like the way the story unfolded. I rate this story a five out of five. In the third story "The Perfect Secret" by Kelly Long, Rose Bender is to marry Luke Raber. But he is so laid back and somewhat boring. She was expecting a little more romance since they become engaged. Then things start to get strange when she starts fantasizing about him and he is fantasizing about her. But they can't seem to be honest with each other about their true feelings. This is a really cute story and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I rate this story a five out of five. ********* I highly recommend this book. I rate this book a five out of five. Disclosure: I was provided a copy for review from Booksneeze. I was in no way compensated for my review it is my own opinion.

¿A Perfect Plan¿ by Beth Wiseman This book is a compilation of three novellas all centered around the love lives of a group of intertwined Amish women. The first story, A Perfect Plan, follows the over-stressed and superstitious Priscilla who is engaged to charming Chester Lapp. The story is sweet and romantic, but it focuses on what happens when everything you want to be perfect kind of falls apart. I found these characters a lot of fun to read about and could literally feel their tension increase as things started falling apart around them. Of the three, this book had the most Christianity written ¿ lots of praying and talking about God and his plan for the young couple. ¿The Perfect Match¿ by Kathleen Fuller This story was, by far, my favorite of the three. The romance between cautious Naomi and adorable Zeke was absolutely perfect ¿ sweet and kind, with bits of heat thrown in there (it¿s Amish fiction, folks ¿ heat means kissing). I thought the author did a fabulous job of introducing her characters to the readers and kept her pacing strong throughout. Naomi¿s hesitancy to open her heart again after having it crushed comes through loud and clear. And Zeke¿ well, he¿s just about as perfect as perfect gets. Immediately after reading this novella, I went online to find more books my Kathleen Fuller. I am really looking forward to reading her other series, though is she chose to write a little more about Naomi and Zeke, I wouldn¿t complain a bit. ¿The Perfect Secret¿ by Kelly Long This novella was my least favorite of the three though still well-written. I simply didn¿t feel that it stayed true to what, in my opinion, is the core of what Amish fiction should be about. There was stealing, lying, kind-of-cheating. And while the story concluded with the standard acceptance of God¿s word and forgiveness, I just really feel like the plot was a bit too far off for me to suspend my disbelief. Lovely writing, just not for me.

Three stories wrapped in one time frame.

Love all thing Amish? Enjoy a soul-soothing, quirky and romantic Christian fiction? Well then, ‘The Amish Wedding’ is just the right book for you. It’s a compilation of 3 stories by 3 great Christian fiction authors. I love all the stories equally and I spent a great time reading this book. I’ll be honest with you. I’m not exactly a fan of Amish fiction. Most of the time, I feel that they are too traditional, backward and restrictive, but this book change my mind about Amish fiction. Amish fiction can be fun and romantic too. I’m glad the authors showed me that.

I recently had the chance to review this wonderful Amish fiction book. It is written by three different writers with three different stories,but are based on characters that come together . Each novel features a story on love. We follow Priscilla King,Rose and Naomi. Each one with a different twist and turn to their love lives. One on the quest of finding out who her childhood friend and the man she is engaged too. She wants to find out who he truly is and what his secret is. The other of wanting to find love and the other where many thins keep happening before her big day. It was a very wonderful read and I love how even though it was written by three different people,it all ties together in the end. Very great read!! I received this free from booksneeze for my honest review

Three different authors, three different stories and three young women. all of them are friends living in the same community and all have something in common, they are preparing for their weddings and dealing with the challenges that come with it. Rose, who was recently engaged to her best friend Luke, begins to wonder if she's made the right choice. Luke seems distant, and not like the man of her dreams. Naomi is a successful matchmaker for everyone except herself. Naomi thinks she is destined to live life alone, but her sister's approaching wedding makes her question her decision. Priscilla is preparing for the perfect wedding she's dreamed of since she was sixteen. She is completely in love with Chester, but as things go wrong with the wedding preparations, they begin to doubt... I loved this book. The authors did a skillful job using the same setting to tell the interwoven stories. The plots are interesting, but it's the characters that keep you reading. The characters are genuinely likeable. Their problems are relatable and the resolutions are satisfying. Everyone knows weddings cause large levels of stress for most everyone involved and things simply go wrong, but this book puts a spin on that common factor with a focus on what marriage is and how the wedding is not the marriage.If you're a fan of Amish stories, or love romance, you'll likely enjoy this book!
