Amish Weddings by Leslie Gould
I have found a great Amish fiction author to add to my already very heavy to read list. I received a copy of this from The Bethany House review program and wanted to share my review.
I am a big Amish fiction fan. I like a couple different authors, and never had heard of this one. Well, I dove right in! I was only disappointed when I found out this was a third installment in a trilogy. I immediately wanted to go back and read the first two.
I really enjoyed this book. It was about two Amish sisters and their family. Lila, the older sister is planning her wedding to Zane when a terrible accident happens (I won't get spoil it here), and younger sister Rose has to step up and help. Rose is in the middle of her own courtship with Reuben and trying to find her own way in life.
Meanwhile, Zane's English friend, Trevor shows up for a visit and that's when things really start picking up in the book.
This book is a great lesson to all about appreciating what you have right in front of you and how important it is to cherish your loved ones. Even more powerful is the power of forgiveness and moving on in the best way one can.
If you like Amish fiction, I highly recommend this story. The characters were very well developed, and made me want to see them again. I am happy to have found Leslie Gould, so a big thank you goes out to Bethany House!
