4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying conclusion to the series 14 Aug 2012
By Rachel
Ella Bayer was raised Mennonite, but since she began dating Ezra Gundy she's become convinced that she will one day join the Amish church so that she can marry Ezra. She thinks she has her entire future planned out - she will get a job, attend baking school, open her own bakery in Lancaster County, then be baptised in the Amish church and marry Ezra. But Ezra's parents interfere with Ella's plans when they announce that they want Ezra to purchase a local dairy farm, and decide that he needs to train in the trade at a dairy outside of Pennsylvania. Ella is convinced that they're scheming to keep her away from Ezra, out of fear that she's a bad influence on their already wild teenage son. But Ella can't help but wish she were leaving Lancaster County herself, since her long absent father has returned and wants to reconcile with her. Not yet ready to forgive the man who deserted her family fifteen years previously, Ella conspires to get herself and Ezra to Indiana, where there is a dairy farm beside her grandmother's old family home. Her grandmother wants her to decode an old family diary and thinks that visiting the family home might help Ella, which fits in perfectly with the Gundy's desire to get Ezra out of Lancaster County. But Ella's carefully constructed plans fall to pieces almost as soon as she and Ezra arrive in Nappanee, Indiana. The family who own the diary farm think that Ezra will be a bad influence on their teenage daughter, with his motorcycle and Mennonite girlfriend, and their fears are confirmed when it becomes apparent that Ella left Pennsylvania without telling anyone of her intentions. Soon Ella finds herself alone in Nappanee, with no job or friends. Read more ›

3.0 out of 5 stars A good novel, shame about the writing 2 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book, not realising it was part of a series, so I was thrown straight into a plot, and whilst I found myself a bit confused here and there, it quickly sorted itself out.

However, I found that the very simplistic writing "the Home Place" and how problems seemed to just resolve themselves lent a feel of a book that should be for 8-10 year olds, rather then a rational, mature writing with great plot twist and turns. The ending was quite rushed and under developed, and 'outside' characters such as Lukes father felt very flat and cardboard die-cut, rather then developed, which would have added to the richness of a book.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than an Amish Story 25 July 2012
By Pondering Life - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Love Amish Reads heres one for you 15 Aug 2012
By M.Fields - Published on
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.
