Rose and Hen (nickname for Hannah) are Amish sisters drawn to men with firm footholds in the Englischer world. Hen rebelled, married, and had a daughter outside her community, but now she is drawn back to the simpler life and away from worldly exposure influencing her daughter. Hen's husband is willing to be flexible for a short time, but she'll soon have a choice to make. I've learned not to start a Beverly Lewis series until all books are published! I'm on to book 2: The Judgement. July 2013
...The Bridesmaid revisits Joanna Kurtz, the kind young woman who befriended Amelia Devries in The Fiddler, which is the first book of this series. I enjoyed reading Joanna's story, as well as getting caught up with some of the other characters who I've previously met in other books that have been set in Hickory Hollow. It feels like you are visiting old friends...**The Bridesmaid by Beverly Lewis was provided for me free by Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
