Fans of Amish fiction will find triple the enjoyment here thanks to this gathering of novellas in one book. The trio of stories—all by accomplished writers of Amish fiction—create a tight braid of friendship and love as three young women follow their hearts despite bumps in the road. Rose Bender and Luke Raber have been friends forever, but their impending marriage leaves Rose yearning for more. A mysterious thief who seems strangely familiar to Rose sets her on a journey of discovery. Rose’s best friend, Priscilla, is about to wed Chester Lapp, but unfortunate events—from finding her wedding dress cut up for doll clothes to an odd case of hiccups—have the pair wondering if their marriage is doomed. Naomi King, Priscilla’s sister, seems happy living in the daadi haus and selling baked goods until Zeke Lapp arrives for his cousin Chester’s wedding. Can Naomi get past a broken heart to let Zeke in? A satisfying addition to the popular Amish genre. (Dec.)
