By Vannetta Chapman
She’ll find him a wife for Christmas…Which of these Indiana Amish Brides is next?
With her wedding business thriving, Annie Kauffmann could never leave her beloved Amish community. So when handsome Amish cowboy Levi Lapp tries to convince her father to move the family to Texas, she must put a stop to it. If Annie finds Levi a wife, he might forget his dream of moving…but can she keep from falling for him herself?
If you are tired of the typical Amish tales, then this is definitely the book for you. It is far from the norm of this genre. Annie is a girl who has a mind of her own and is not afraid to use it! She is the owner and operator of a catering business, but is also a determined matchmaker. This is unusual in itself, but then entering the scene is a cowboy hat wearing Amish man! These characters are described is such a detailed, realistic way that you are immediately drawn into their lives and walk alongside them in their rather different life journey.They keep us amused as well as immersing us in their very unusual lives.
The plot is far from boring, it moves quickly with unexpected twists and turns from beginning to end. The independent Annie meets with many challenges as she fights her desire to enter a romantic relationship, especially with someone who's greatest desire to leave the Amish community she loves, and go to , of all places, Texas!!
The underlying message comes through this novel loud and clear. Life is not always easy! It becomes even more difficult when we are not following God's plan, all because we want something that is not what He chooses. It is amazing what will happen to our lives and that of others when we become compliant. God can do the unexpected!!
Vannetta has once again created a tale that exhibits her unique storytelling talent.
Don't miss this great story!! A fun read from beginning to end.
This book was a gift. The thoughts and opinions expressed are honest and my own.
