Complex Amish characters -- A Reluctant Bride
Sadie and Aden both harbor deep hurts and secrets that make their individual lives difficult enough on their own. But when they are suddenly thrown together out of necessity, they have to make choices about how much to share in order to begin healing.
Kathleen did an awesome job of crafting these and other characters in ways that provide a very engaging story. Some of the turns in the plot were expected, but others caught me off-guard, one element of great stories. She brought in several tragic and difficult topics and allowed her characters to deal with them in emotion-provoking ways. I alternated between cheering the characters on and crying with them as they struggled with their hurts and fears.
Fans of great Amish fiction should thoroughly enjoy A Reluctant Bride. Thanks to Kathleen for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
