Product Description

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 friends' 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 a secret side of him that engages her mind and her heart.

Publisher's Description

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.

Endorsements

Three intertwined stories and characters combine in this charming book. Worry is something that blocks God’s voice from the believer. While it is difficult, one should not question God’s plan, as His plan is perfect … even if it does not seem so at the time. Recipes perfect for the holiday season are included. - Four Stars, Romantic Times

Publisher's Weekly

Fans of Amish fiction will find triple the enjoyment here thanks to this gathering of novellas in one book. The trio of stories—all by accomplished writers of Amish fiction—create a tight braid of friendship and love as three young women follow their hearts despite bumps in the road. Rose Bender and Luke Raber have been friends forever, but their impending marriage leaves Rose yearning for more. A mysterious thief who seems strangely familiar to Rose sets her on a journey of discovery. Rose’s best friend, Priscilla, is about to wed Chester Lapp, but unfortunate events—from finding her wedding dress cut up for doll clothes to an odd case of hiccups—have the pair wondering if their marriage is doomed. Naomi King, Priscilla’s sister, seems happy living in the daadi haus and selling baked goods until Zeke Lapp arrives for his cousin Chester’s wedding. Can Naomi get past a broken heart to let Zeke in? A satisfying addition to the popular Amish genre. (Dec.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.

    Do you love and enjoy short stories ? An Amish Wedding is a collection of three short stories by three wonderful Amish Fiction writers - all surrounding the theme of Weddings. The first story which I personally enjoyed the most was The Perfect Secret by Kelly Long, in which we meet newly engaged couple Rose and Luke. Rose yearns for more excitement and passion in her heart and when she hears about a thief that has been stealing in the midst of the night , she longs to meet this thief as we learn he has been nicknamed "A Modern Day Robin Hood". Out one night, Rose stumbles across the thief and is surprised to discover that it is somebody she knows, as Rose starts to spend more time with the thief -will her heart's intentions sway from Luke to the Robin Hood ? Will Rose discover that her heart will not be satisfied with Luke or will she discover that sometimes you just have to peer really hard to discover what lies beneath the surface ? In the second tale "The Perfect Match" by Kathleen Fuller , we meet Naomi - her sister Priscilla is getting married and it seems that the whole female population is in "dating fever" . When Naomi's friend starts to fret about finding the perfect man , Naomi meets Zeke - Chester's cousin who is here for the wedding. In trying to be a good friend , Naomi sets Zeke up with Margaret but it won't be too long till she discovers she has feelings for him. Will Naomi put her notions about not dating aside for Zeke or will her friendship and loyalty stand in the way of her happiness ? In the last but not least tale is "The Perfect Plan" written by Beth Wiseman. The Perfect Plan is the tale of Priscilla and her upcoming nuptials to Chester, Priscilla just wants her day to be perfect. But when a number of incidents happen including a house disaster , ruined dresses and a sick attendant , it gets Priscilla thinking is she making the right decision to marry Chester or by these accidents happening is God testing her ?

    An Amish Wedding

    Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, & Kelly Long

    This is a book with interlinking stories about 3 Amish woman written by 3 authors. The first story is about a couple that has known each other their entire lives and are planning to marry. Along the way they discover some secrets about each other and that knowing things about each other is a good basis for building a relationship. The second story is about a young woman who has waited on the Lord to lead her to the man she is to marry. This man is brought into her life story takes off from there. The third story is about a couple that is engaged to marry and all the mishaps that occur on the way to the alter.

    The three stories were pleasantly enjoyable. I found the first story to be my favorite of the three. I did like the 2nd and 3rd, which were easy reads. The entire book was well written and each story was links throughout the book. The majority of the characters were in each story and was interwoven to the point that you could not tell that they were written by three authors.
