Book Review: An Amish Wedding by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, and Kelly Long

 An Amish Wedding is unique in that it is written by not one, but three authors; Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, and Kelly Long.  The book is divided into three Amish Novellas entitled A Perfect Secret, A Perfect Match, and A Perfect Plan.  The reader has an opportunity to peek into the unique lifestyle of the Old Order Amish Community.

As I got to know the female characters that are woven within the book, Priscilla, Naomi, and Rose, I find myself discovering that the themes of love, relationship, family, and God’s will in our lives are not exclusive to the Amish community alone.  It is a human theme.

The book has a glossary at the beginning of the book with words and phrases to help educate the reader.   One example is the phrase “Derr Herr” for God and “appeditlich” for delicious.  Speaking of delicious, there are a few Amish recipes at the close of the book.  Who wouldn’t want to bake Amish Blueberry Cobbler or comfort food called Underground Ham.

If you are in the mood for a sweet love story with a glimpse into a different lifestyle, then you will enjoy An Amish Wedding.  This book allows the reader to appreciate how similar we really are as human beings who long for love, strong family ties, and the ability to trust in God’s plan for our lives

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
