Weddings at Promise Lodge by Charlotte Hubbard



Founded by the three Bender sisters, the Amish community of Promise Lodge is thriving—and growing. In fact, residents are thrilled to welcome a charismatic new arrival—one who may not just strengthen their faith, but put it to the test . . .

When Christine Bender meets widowed Bishop Monroe Burkholder, it’s love at first sight. But Preacher Amos finds him too good to be true, and is determined to find out what’s behind his sudden, unannounced arrival. Still, the colony needs a new bishop, and everyone is excited to have a younger, more progressive leader. As for Christine, Monroe returns her affection, but her bubble is soon burst with the arrival of a young woman half his age . . .

Leola Duff claims Monroe “ruined” her and she now intends to make an honest man of him. But throughout the process of discovering the truth, Christine never doubts that Monroe is the fine man she believes him to be—and never wavers in her faith that all will work out as it should. And when Monroe is forced to confess the truth before the entire congregation, he can only pray that open hearts and minds will prevail, allowing him a future at Promise Lodge—with Christine . . .


Another fabulous read by one of my fave authors Charlotte Hubbard. 
I loved going back to Promise Lodge to see what my old friends were up to!! 
I had a few rough get gos and a few nice surprises as well.
I loved how the author brings new people in to stir up a hornets nest fo keep our friends on their toes.
Leola isnt quite right and thanks to our old friends they helped take care of her and befriended her. I did have to snicker at certain places in the story. 
Christinecertainly is a marvelous woman and handles everything that is thrown her way with gusto. 
Maria is another character that was introduced to us and being Rosetta she certainly put up a good front about everything.
I loved everything about this book. 
Charlotte added just the right dose of humor and entertainment as well.
I loved watching these people adjust to certain happenings and how Gid worked His magic charm.
For God knows our ans every step of our way and He is there everywhere!!! 
Will Rosetta and Truman be together for life and will Monroe and Christine have the perfect happiness for life?
You'll just have to read this wonderful book to see what happens!!!!
I recommend this book.
I received this book for free on Netgalley and all compensations are not received. All opionions ans words are my own!! 


Charlotte Hubbard
Drawing upon her experiences in Jamesport, the largest Old Order Amish community west of the Mississippi, longtime Missourian Charlotte Hubbard (a.k.a. Naomi King) writes of simpler times and a faith-based lifestyle in her new Seasons of the Heart series. Like her heroine, Miriam Lantz, Charlotte considers it her personal mission to feed people—to share hearth and home. Faith and family, farming and food preservation are hallmarks of her lifestyle, and the foundation of her earlier Angels of Mercy series. She’s a deacon, a dedicated church musician and choir member, and when she’s not writing, she loves to try new recipes, crochet, and sew. Charlotte now lives in Minnesota with her husband and their border collie.
