Product Description

Ella Bayer and Ezra Gundy are in love and hope to marry someday, but she is a young Mennonite woman while he is an Amish man. Though both Plain, one of them will have to forsake what they believe to embrace another way of life.

Hoping some distance will cool the relationship, Ezra's family sends him to work at an Amish dairy farm in Indiana. But Ella disregards what her family wants and follows Ezra. In short order she finds a place to live, a job in a bakery, and an unexpected but budding friendship with a handsome Amish farmhand, Luke. When a family tragedy forces Ella back to Pennsylvania, she must face all she's been running away from. And once she has made peace with those around her, she has an important decision to make: Whose Amish bride will she become-Ezra's or Luke's?

    This review was written for Amish Bride, The - eBook.
    I have read all four books in this series and I'm reading them again so I better understand how all the characters fit together to make a complete picture of an extended family. The stories contain a lot of history regarding the Anabaptists and contain a unique blend of how the main character in each book finds a piece of their identity. The families face many challenges with strength to overcome due to their faith in God. The main character in the Amish Bride is Ella, a woman of conviction who pursues her goals despite obstacles and cultural biases.

    Ella Bayer, a Mennonite teen with Amish connections, has finished high school and is ready to get on with her life. This includes attending a baking school, with the dream of owning her own bakery one day, and marrying her Amish boyfriend, Ezra Gundy. Family conflicts continue—some introduced in the first two books of the series, The Amish Midwife and The Amish Nanny—with new issues impeding the path Ella has planned.

    She avoids her estranged father, deceives her mother, endures separation from Ezra, tolerates humiliation from her teacher, and assists her cousin and new friends as she sorts out her life goals and what God might want. Should she join the Amish church? How can she ever forgive her dad?

    Added to the drama of intertwined relationships is the element of suspense Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould skillfully weave into their tales. Ella's great-grandmother left a journal, partially written in code. Ella endeavors to unravel the meaning behind the drawings and strange writing as she discovers more of her mother's family history. The lessons learned parallel her own life of joy mixed with pain. Her journey of self-discovery also opens the door to greater sensitivity and understanding of others.

    This book can stand alone, but the series is best read in order. The book will be out August 1, so you have time to read the earlier ones. Don't miss them.

    In The Amish Bride, the reader is swept away to beautiful Amish country -- the picture of idyllic living with blooming daffodils, grazing cows in emerald green pastures, and clean clothes flapping in the breeze -- but underneath the guise of tranquility lie secrets, pain, and betrayal.

    Ella Bayer is a lovely, young Mennonite woman who wants only to attend baking school, start her own bakery, and become the wife of her Amish sweetheart, Ezra Gundy. Seeking to separate the two, Ezra's family arranges for him to leave Lancaster County to work at a dairy farm in Indiana, although Ella has made it clear that she is willing to join the Amish church.

    Meanwhile, Ella's grandmother gives her a book filled with mysterious codes and secrets, and entrusts Ella to crack the code for reasons of her own. To do so gives Ella the perfect opportunity to go to Indiana with Ezra, where the author of the book had lived, and her mammi has prepaid for her to go to baking school there as well. While there, Ella meets Luke, a shy, but kind Amish man and ends up working in close proximity to him.

    Upon discovering that the two of them are together, Ezra's family immediately summon him back home, leaving a heartbroken Ella in Indiana. When a mysterious man shows up in Ella and her family's life, and disturbing secrets come to light -- will Ella stay where she is, or return to Lancaster to become Ezra's wife? Will she crack the code in the book and what are the consequences should she do so?...and if she leaves Indiana what of her friendship with Luke? Have they become more than mere friends?

    Ok, I'm ashamed to admit it, but this is the first Amish book by Mindy Clark that I have read and I loved it! Although this is the third book in The Women of Lancaster County series it can be read as a stand alone. Her writing technique (I love how she pays so much attention to detail) and storyline is intriguing -- her characters -- all too human. Interspersed with a thread of suspense, and tough topics such as adultery, spousal abuse, and abandonment, this is one not to be missed!

    THE AMISH BRIDE by Mindy Starns Clark & Leslie Gould is an interesting inspirational Amish fiction set in Lancaster,Pennsylvania. I love these Amish stories and this was no exception. Book 3 in "The Woman of Lancaster County"series,but can be read as a stand alone. Follow Ella Bayer, Ezra Gundy and a farm hand named Luke on a journey of forgiveness,patience,discovery,faith,redemption,healing,friendship,and love.While Ella and Ezra has loved each other for years,and wish to marry,they have one problem,they are of different faith,she is Mennonite and he Amish. I enjoy both of these authors stories and together they make a wonderful team. Their characters a enduring,engaging and will steal your heart. "The Amish Bride" is a story of love and coming home. Received for an honest review from the publisher and Wynn-Wynn Media. Details can be found at the authors' website,Harvest House Publishers and My Book Addiction and More.

    Oh this book was so good. I couldn't put it down. I loved "The Amish Nanny" and "The Amish Midwife" but "The Amish Bride" is my favorite so far.

    This book begins with the character Ella Bayer. She is very adamant to what she wants in life. She wants to own her own bakery and she wants to marry Ezra Gundy. There is only one problem. She is Mennonite and Ezra is Amish. Ella is willing to become Amish to marry Ezra. It seems that both families would like nothing more than to keep them a part from each other.

    Ella does a lot of planning on how to keep her and Ezra together. While she doesn't come right out and lie, so she thinks, she just eliminates some important facts.

    Ella finds out that Ezra is being sent to Indiana to work on a dairy farm. Ella devises a plan that would allow her to spend time in Indiana close by the dairy farm where Ezra is staying.

    Will Ella's plan work out for her? Does she and Ezra end up together? Does Ella become Amish?

    This book is filled with a lot of characters. Some were very endearing to me. It would take up too much space to try to write about each one in this review. Besides, I think it would give away too much of the story. You will need to pick up a copy of this book to find out what makes it such a fantastic read!

    This book addresses the issue of forgiveness. How often do we hang on to our hurts when we have been wronged? It is so easy to nurture those hurts and not let go. Forgiveness can be a tough issue at times and it isn't always so easy to readily forgive. This story also shows us the value of letting God be in control of our life. Too often we are in the driver's seat and we wonder why our life is so messed up.

    Thank you Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould for writing a book that is such a good read that you don't want it to end.

    I'm hoping that we see a fourth book in The Women of Lancaster County. I want to find out more about Ella and her future!

    I won this book on FaithfulReader.com. Thank you so much for the chance to do so. I have enjoyed this book immensely. The opinions that I shared are mine alone.
