Three Amish women yearn for the perfect wedding.
“A Perfect Plan” by Beth Wiseman
Priscilla King has been planning to marry Chester Lapp since she was sixteen years old, and when Chester proposes on Priscilla’s nineteenth birthday, wedding plans begin immediately. What wasn’t planned was all the problems the couple encounters as their big day approaches. A house disaster, a ruined wedding dress, and a sick attendant all make the couple wonder if God’s sending them signs to call things off.
“The Perfect Match” by Kathleen Fuller
Naomi Fisher has had great success at matchmaking her family members and friends. Now with her sister’s wedding right around the corner, Naomi wonders why she’s able to find husbands for her friends and family, but not one for herself.
“The Perfect Secret” by Kelly Long
Rose Bender has recently become engaged to handsome but somber Luke Raber. She agrees out of a sense of duty and a willingness to settle for solid friendship as a basis for the engagement. But as she watches her friend’s excitement over her soon-to-be wedding, Rose wonders if there shouldn’t be more to her relationship with Luke. She begins to examine Luke and his life more closely and is amazed when she stumbles upon an exciting, secret side of him that engages her mind and heart.
It’s no secret that I love to read Amish fiction. If you have been following me for the past year or so, then you have noticed I have increased my reviews of this genre of fiction. I like it because it is clean and I just don’t have to worry about the content too much. And the stories are usually quite enjoyable.
An Amish Wedding is actually a collection of three different novella length stories. We get a glimpse into the lives of three different Amish women and their upcoming weddings. I found it interesting to see the differences in the voice of each author. I did enjoy those differences and found that this was a book I could sit down and pick back up when I had time as the separation of the three stories made it easy to do that with.
Though I enjoyed the three different stories, I think I have discovered that I actually prefer to longer length stories. It allows for longer character development and I don’t feel like the story is rushed. I did feel that a bit with these stories and kept feeling like something was missing. However, that being said, if you are looking for a book where you can read a short story and sit it down until you have more time and not yearn to find out what happens next, then this may be the book for you. I am glad I have this book, and I look forward to adding more Amish fiction to my bookshelves in the future.
