An Amish Wedding by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller and 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 fiancĂ© 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 Wedding begins with Luke proposing marriage to Rose, yet he doesn't show the romance that Rose was dreaming about. She almost reluctantly accepts, yet lets him know that she hopes they could "maybe kiss a bit more" now that they are engaged. This kind of sets the stage for their upcoming marriage, and the transition time is filled with personal discovery individually and as a couple.

Luke has a huge secret and he knows that the rest of the community would not understand his involvement with a non-Amish family in desperate need. He dresses as an Englisher to hide his identity, and hopes that nobody will recognize him.

Priscilla and Chester's upcoming marriage is filled with trials and setbacks, and they can't help but wonder if they should just give up and call off the wedding.

An Amish Wedding is a sweet collection of love stories, and the three co-writers of this book have done an awesome job.
