Amish Weddings

Amish Weddings (Neighbors of Lancaster County #3)


Gregarious Rose Lehman, who's always the life of the Amish youth singings, is determined to marry the bishop's son, Reuben Byler--until the handsome Army buddy of her future brother-in-law shows up in Lancaster County. In comparison to Trevor, Reuben seems downright boring. Trevor shares Rose's sense of fun and adventure, and her easygoing disposition. 

When her sister Lila's buggy is rear-ended and Lila is horribly injured, Rose finds herself with more freedom than she's ever experienced. Everyone is so concerned about Lila that no one realizes Rose is sneaking out with Trevor. Except for Reuben. But in his usual passive way, he doesn't confront her, nor does he address the situation with her Dat or anyone else in the district. Rose appreciates Reuben's discretion, but she also resents it. Part of her relishes the freedom she's found with Trevor, but the other part of her wishes Reuben would "fight" for her, as much as any Amish man would. Too late, she realizes the foolish choice she's made. Has she ruined her best chance at love, or is there another path to happiness she just hasn't seen yet?


Another awesome book by Leslie Gould.

Leslie proves to us that the Amish aren't perfect by any means!
The weak moments are what makes us stronger and better people for the future.
Fun loving Rose finds herself in trouble and Lila is going through her times of trouble as well. 
I love how Zane stands by Lila throughout her nightmare and he is struggling with some things as well. 
Through all we have done or what we will do there is a man who loves us and will never forsake us. Rose learned this lesson the hard way. 
Lilas father has told her not to go looking for trouble but she did anyway and learned the hard way. Even though our birth parents gave us up for a reason it is the one who raised us and has stood by us all these years. But, sometimes curiosity gets the better of us. (I know because I'm dying of curiosity to meet my two sisters that are out there. i also want to know because of medical reasons for my son but alas, I'm at a dead end)
I was so happy for Tim and Beth at long last!!!
Trevor never takes responsibility for anything and I'm even surprised that he survived being in the army like he did.
The one I felt got the dirty end of the deal was Reuben. Poor Rueben!!!
Rueben is my hero. For stepping in to raise someone else's child. It takes a special man to do that!!!
With the help of our loving God. God is good is He not? 
He intervenes when He need to and sometimes whether we like it or not. Hr also hears our prayer and answers them but again not the way we'd like 
I loved visiting Juneberry Lane again and seeing what my friends were up to. I was definitely not disappointed!!!
Love has a way of finding you when you least expect it
I look forward to reading more of Leslie's books in the future.
She has a way to spin stories that make the characters come to life with real problems, struggles, and laughter and joy. 
I recommend this book for people who love to read. Especially about the Amish!!
I was provided a copy from the publisher and not expected to write a review whether positve or negative.
