An Amish Wedding
In A Perfect Secret, Kelly Long introduces Rose and Luke -- a young couple who have known each other all their lives and have been expected by everyone around them to be married some day. Rose begins to have doubts, though, as she realizes how predictable her relationship with Luke is and how much she wishes for excitement. When she encounters the thief who is plaguing her community, she finds her desire for adventure growing stronger and has even more questions about her future with Luke. While Rose looks for answers to her questions, her friend Priscilla runs into problems as she prepares for her own marriage to Chester Lapp.
Kathleen Fuller picks up the story of Priscilla's sister Naomi in A Perfect Match. When Chester's cousin Zeke comes to town for Priscilla's and Chester's wedding, Naomi puts her matchmaking skills to work with her friend Margaret. Things don't go as planned, though, and Naomi is surprised to find herself in the middle of a match-up. Still hurting from being abandoned by her first love, Naomi doesn't believe she is ready to trust again.
Beth Wiseman pulls the pieces together in A Perfect Plan. As the time approaches for Priscilla's and Chester's wedding, problems continue to grow and threaten to overshadow the love they have for each other. From an unexpected source, they are reminded of the meaning of true love and of God's plan for their lives.
Three stories, three authors -- one saga of intertwined lives. Kelly, Kathleen, and Beth all have their distinctive styles of writing but weave them together in a way that makes for a very enjoyable account of life, love, and faith. Fans of good Amish fiction should definitely enjoy this trio of stories from some of the best!
