This wonderful book is more than an Amish story. The main character, eighteen year old Ella, has actually been raised as a Mennonite in Pennsylvania, though she is willing to join the Amish Church so that she can marry her Amish boyfriend Ezra. Now it seems that their families are conspiring to separate Ezra from her by sending him to another state to learn dairy farming, and at the same time Ella's father has returned, after abandoning his family many years ago, resulting in Ella learning that she has been kept in the dark about important family secrets. Feeling resentful toward her family and alienated from them, Ella cleverly schemes to ensure that she and Ezra won't be separated by suggesting that he apprentice at a dairy farm next door to the farm in Indiana where her mother was born and where she still has relatives.

Without telling her family her plans and without telling Ezra that her family doesn't know, Ella stealthily arranges to go to Indiana with Ezra. Her plan works flawlessly until both her family and Ezra's discover it. Then Ezra's family is furious with him, and he in turn is furious with Ella. Ezra's family comes to take him home and Ella is left in Indiana by herself. Torn between returning to Pennsylvania to try to patch things up with Ezra, and remaining in Indiana so that she can avoid her estranged father, and investigate an old family mystery shared with her by her grandmother, Ella chooses to stay until family tragedy suddenly calls her back to Pennsylvania. Readers will be delighted with the way God's plan for Ella unfolds and with the way biblical truths about the central importance of a relationship with Christ, both for every individual and every marriage, are revealed in this beautiful story of forgiveness and redemption!

I really liked book number three in The Women of Lancaster County. The Amish Bride was a very fun read. I loved Ella and her story. If you have read the first two in this series you are going to like this story of redemption. This book did have an unexpected ending. I did not see it coming, but I really did like it.You don't have to read the first two books in the series but it would be best to so that you can follow the characters better. I gave this book 4 stars.

The Amish Bride is one of the best amish novels I have read in a long time.
I truly enjoyed every word and was sad when there was no more to read.
Definitely a must read.

This was a very fitting finish to the 3 books in the series, not how I expected but an excellent read showing hos we all need to stop sometimes and sort through our problems, the Amish way of doing things can often be very helpful.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By (Sunshine) Judy K Burgi on September 10, 2012
Format: Paperback
Oh this book was so good. I couldn't put it down. I loved "The Amish Nanny" and "The Amish Midwife" but "The Amish Bride" is my favorite so far.

This book begins with the character Ella Bayer. She is very adamant to what she wants in life. She wants to own her own bakery and she wants to marry Ezra Gundy. There is only one problem. She is Mennonite and Ezra is Amish. Ella is willing to become Amish to marry Ezra. It seems that both families would like nothing more than to keep them a part from each other.

Ella does a lot of planning on how to keep her and Ezra together. While she doesn't come right out and lie, so she thinks, she just eliminates some important facts.

Ella finds out that Ezra is being sent to Indiana to work on a dairy farm. Ella devises a plan that would allow her to spend time in Indiana close by the dairy farm where Ezra is staying.

Will Ella's plan work out for her? Does she and Ezra end up together? Does Ella become Amish?

This book is filled with a lot of characters. Some were very endearing to me. It would take up too much space to try to write about each one in this review. Besides, I think it would give away too much of the story. You will need to pick up a copy of this book to find out what makes it such a fantastic read!

This book addresses the issue of forgiveness. How often do we hang on to our hurts when we have been wronged? It is so easy to nurture those hurts and not let go. Forgiveness can be a tough issue at times and it isn't always so easy to readily forgive. This story also shows us the value of letting God be in control of our life. Too often we are in the driver's seat and we wonder why our life is so messed up.

Format: Paperback
In book 3 of the Women of Lancaster County, Clark and Gould continue the stories of Plain women finding true love and determining their future.

Mennonite Ella Bayer is in love. She is sure that she will marry her teenage boyfriend, Ezra Gundy, join the Amish church in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and live happily ever after. There is only one thing standing in her way...her mother... who is just as determined that Ella won't be marrying Ezra after all.

Ezra family, like Ella's mom, is concerned about Ella and Ezra's relationship. Although Mennonites and Amish are both Plain, they are very different in what they believe. One of the two young lovers must forsake their heritage to be able to marry the other.

Amid mounting tension, Ezra gets sent to Indiana and away from Ella by his father to learn about Amish dairy farming. Without her family's permission, Ella runs off to Indiana to join Ezra. While there, she meets young Amish farmhand, Luke, and strikes up an unlikely friendship with him. When family tragedy forces her to return to Pennsylvania, Ella must face her past and determine which Amish man will share her future.

My Thoughts:

The Amish Bride was a cute, engaging book. It kept my attention and had me guessing at the ending up until the last page. I love the fact that Ella's character is fully Mennonite, embracing all their beliefs, but also fully her own, somewhat rebellious person. She is real and delightful.

I also loved the ending that the authors chose. It was not a pat, predictable ending. It was genuine and unexpected. It was the ending I would want for my child.

If I were to rank the books in this series in order of my favorites, The Amish Bride would come in second.
