Publisher's Description

A Wedding for Julia, the third book in a romantic series from popular author Vannetta Chapman, takes a last look at the Amish community of Pebble Creek and the kind, caring people there. As they face challenges from the English world, they come together to reach out to their non-Amish neighbors while still preserving their cherished Plain ways.


Julia Beechy is so stunned, she can hardly breathe. Her mother's announcement that she must either marry or move from the family home upon her mother's imminent death catches Julia by surprise. How can she leave the only home she has ever known? What about her dream of opening her own Plain cafe?


When Caleb Zook offers support, comfort, and a solution, Julia is afraid to accept it. Can she marry someone she barely knows? Is it the right thing to do? Is this God's plan for her future?


Caleb thought his time for marrying was long past, but he feels a stirring in his heart he cannot shake for this beautiful, forlorn woman. Amid the circumstances of this life-altering decision, the people of Pebble Creek weather the worst storm to hit Wisconsin in the last hundred years. Where will Julia and Caleb be on the other side of it?

    There is so much to like about this book - "old" characters that I have already grown to love, and new ones that I have so much in common with, all set in the gentle world of Pebble Creek. Julia is a 37 year old spinster still living at home with her recently widowed mother, Ada. Like me, she loves to cook and is chronically tidy - and she worries about her shrinking mother who struggles with signs of dementia. She has a dream of opening a cafe...and her mother has a dream of seeing her married! Quiet Caleb Zook makes both of these wishes come true with about 200 pages left to go. What else does Vannetta Chapman have in store for us? The old homestead becomes more than the site of a successful cafe. The Zooks take in a struggling teen-aged relative, and Ada's gifts of prayer and compassion reach another generation. Then a hundred-year storm threatens to undo all the hard work and happiness they have achieved - or will it? With characteristic plot twists and true-to-life emotions, Chapman makes me glad once again to visit Pebble Creek.

    t has actually been a little while since I read A Wedding for Julia, but now I am trying to recall things and reading a bit of it again so that I hopefully remember things correctly. I do remember that I really enjoyed this book and that is why I wanted to write about it on my blog.
    This book is part of a series of Amish books but was actually the first book of the series that I read. I think that I might need to take some time to read books 1 and 2 because this one was so enjoyable to read.
    The main character is Julia Beechy. Her mother, Ada, tells her that she has to marry or move from the family home when she passes. Her mother Ada insists that the house be sold and that Julia moves back to Pennsylvania where relatives are still living. But Julia has lived in Pebble Creek her whole life and had hoped to realize a dream of opening a cafe. Because of her mother’s failing health, Julia is very concerned as to what direction her future will lead her. This causes lots of stress and worry for Julia. She is not sure how she will go about changing this situation that her mother unexpectedly caused.

    Caleb Zook, who, like Julia, is also getting older than the expected marriage age of the Amish, suggests that they marry in order to help Julia out of this predicament. But Julia is unsure whether she could marry someone she doesn’t love even though Caleb is a helpful man, and a very hard worker. As they get to know one another, perhaps some feelings are being kindled that surprise both of them.
    A horrible tornado comes to Pebble Creek like has not been seen in this area of Wisconsin in more than one hundred years. The Amish people must now do what Amish people seem to do very well and that is to help their friends and neighbors and pray that all survive the terrible destruction.
    The characters, Caleb and Julia seem to mesh together well as they work together after the storm. The community comes together when the need is there, also. As I read this book, I couldn’t put it down. I am also grateful to authors such as Vannetta Chapmann who write books of a Christian nature that have good moral values, as well as guidelines for each of us on working together and building strong family relationships. An excellent book! I just loved it! It's a wonderful story and well worth reading!

    A Wedding for Julie: The Pebble Creek Amish Series by Vannetta Chapman*****

    Julia Beechy lives at home with her mamm (mother), Ada, who suffers from arthritis and what appears to be early Alzheimer's. Julia loves to cook and bake and it has been a longtime dream of hers to open a cafe in her childhood home in Pebble Creek, Wisconsin. However, she is not sure how to approach her mamm with the idea or even if she would agree with Julia's plan. But before she can talk to her about turning their home into a cafe, Ada shocks Julia with news about what will become of their home once Ada is gone too. What will become of Julia's dream? What does God have in store for her?

    As Caleb Zook drives his horse and buggy delivering groceries to his Amish community, his mind wonders as he longs for a friend and hopefully one day to find a wife. As he nears the Beechy home he prays earnestly for a friend. As he learns of Julia's shocking news, he tries to comfort her as best he can. Can they together come up with a solution that will satisfy Ada? God answers Caleb's prayer in an unexpected way. Will he recognize God's answer?

    As Caleb and Julia struggle to come to some kind of decision that could very well alter their lives in ways they can not foresee, one of the worse storms in years hits Pebble Creek. Can they pick up the pieces of the destruction the storm has left behind? Is there hope for Julia, for Caleb?

    I like the way Vannetta Chapman develops her characters in real-to-life struggles we each can identify with. There is much to glean from her stories, stories of hope, life-challenges we all face, friends and family as well as community that comes together when tragedy strikes and lends a helping hand. Woven through these struggles is hope, love, faith and God's love.

    Julia Beechy's life is completely uprooted when she receives the news that she must either marry or move out of the family home. Not only is she about to loose her mother, she will also loose the home she's lived in all her life. Her dream of opening her own cafe is slipping away like so much sand on a beach, and she is powerless to stop the frightening changes that will be taking place in her life.

    Caleb Zook thinks it is much too late in his life to marry, but he is compelled to offer his protection to Julia through a marriage proposal. The only hitch is that they barely know one another, and a marriage to Caleb simply for the sake of getting married seems more daunting that anything else Julia has ever faced. With a storm threatening Pebble Creek, Wisconsin, and so many things up in the air, will Caleb and Julia have a chance to make a go of a relationship despite everything happening in their lives?

    The thing I liked the best about this story was the strong sense of community and family represented by the Pebble Creek characters. There were people from the previous two books whose stories were expounded upon and revisited, but in no way overshadowed the plot. Julia and Caleb's relationship throughout the book was very sweet and when they finally had their first spat I couldn't help but love them even more. Chapman conveys emotions well to the reader through her characters, and arrested my attention with not only her writing style, but her excellent portrayal of human relationships.
