always a bridesmaid
You really can't go wrong with Beverly Lewis. Will they be studying her in high school across the nation in 100 years? Probably not. But if you want to read a book that will make you happy and entertained, Beverly is your gal. "The Bridesmaid" is the latest novel in the Home to Hickory Hollow series. She will be releasing a new one next month. Bridesmaid is about Joanna, a wanna-be writer who is a serial bridesmaid and has no luck making it to the alter herself as a bride. Until Eben comes along, that is. Eben is from a different state, but they both are visiting Virginia at the same time. It is love at first sight. The problem is Joanna's bratty sister tells the bishop that Joanna has been writing fiction, which is apparently a no-no and gets her "grounded". Joanna cannot leave the district to marry Eben. Eben must come here. Eben can't leave his district because his brother won't join the Amish church and therefore take over the family dairy farm. Will they or won't they? As usual, I like Lewis' story and will be reading the next in the series. I am not a big fan of Amish Fiction, but I am of Beverly Lewis. I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishing.
