Do the cares of this world ever make you think it would be nice to go live with the Amish and escape today’s troubling issues? Lest you think the Amish live a fairy tale existence of peace and harmony, with none of the world’s problems or temptations coming into their lives, think again.
Pretty Rose Lehman is about to find out just how true that is. The outgoing 18-year-old is restless, and would like Reuben Byler to declare his feelings for her. Reuben has yet to kiss her, let alone talk of marriage, despite dating awhile. When handsome Trevor arrives, he has no problem showing her she is desirable. An Englischer and former Army buddy of her future brother-in-law Zane, Trevor seems to offer the excitement and fun that the slow and steady Reuben does not.
When Rose’s sister Lila is in an accident, Rose finds herself thrown together with Trevor more and more often. At the same time, the normal supervision that would have been given towards Rose’s activities is missing because of the extra care needed for Lila. Will Rose give into the idea that spending time with a man who lavishes lots of attention on her will have no consequences on her relationship with Rueben? Are the remarks Rueben makes criticisms of her family, or are they concerns he has for Rose’s safety? Has Rose lived such a sheltered Amish life that she is naive when it comes to men, and possible dangerous situations?
From page one, you will instantly care about the characters in this story, and not want to put this book down until you find out what happens to them. Not only is Rose’s tale here, Lila and Zane’s story continues in this book, too. This is the third installment in the Neighbors of Lancaster County Series. However, this story is very enjoyable in its own right, read it even if you haven’t read the other installments—Amish Weddings can stand on its own. I highly recommend this 5-star book to anyone who enjoys Amish stories or well-written fiction.
