The Bridesmaid

The Latest in Chart-Topping Amish Fiction from Beverly Lewis

Twenty-seven-year-old Joanna Kurtz has made several trips to the altar, but never as a bride. The single young Amish woman is a closet writer with a longing to be published something practically unheard of in her Lancaster County community. Yet Joanna's stories aren't her only secret. She also has a beau who is courting her from afar, unbeknownst even to her sister, Cora, who, though younger, seems to have suitors to spare. 

Eben Troyer is a responsible young Amish man who hopes to make Joanna Kurtz his bride--if he can ever leave his parents' farm in Shipshewana, Indiana. Yet with his only brother off in the English world, intent on a military career, Eben's hopes for building a life with his dear Joanna are dimming, and patience is wearing thin. Will Joanna ever be more than a bridesmaid?
This book ended differently than I thought I was going to but it was still another amazing book in the Home to Hickory Hollow series. I have never disliked a Beverly Lewis book, she is one of my favorite authors and I have never disagreed with how she has ended a book like I have with others. I would recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of Amish fiction. I received this book for review by Bethany House Publishers; I was not made to write a positive review, the opinion expressed is my own.
