Amish Brides by Jennifer Beckstand, Molly Jebber, & Amy Lillard

My review today is on the Amish Novella, Amish Brides. This book is to be released on May 30th. Today I'm going to review The Reluctant Groom. This is another episode of The Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill. I love Anna and Felty. I wish they were my family and would set me up. The story is welly written, humorous, and heart warming. You will love it.

Suvie Newswenger goes to Anna and askes to hire her to help her get a husband. She has fallen in love with their great-grandson, Aaron Beachy. Suvie needs help; she can't cook, she's older than Aaron, and she can't get past his depression. They come up with a plan to bring him food (Anna can't cook either)and plant petunias in his yard but Aaron doesn't want petunias planted in his late wife's garden, especially next to the dead rose bush his wife had planted when they first married.

Widower Aaron Beachy is wallowing in his grief. He can't give up his grief or that would mean forgetting his wife and he can't let that happen. He is unable to work, to cook, or do anything productive. He is just trying to survive. He is eating bran flakes to make him feel worse when suddenly there is a knock on his front door; he hides in the back of his yard bu his memorial rock pile so they would leave him alone. Suvie comes around the house and asks why he didn't open his door. His Mammi and Dawdi were standing on his front porch holding a casserole and a flat of petunias.

A journey of restoration and healing. A man totally broken but God has a plan for him and included the lively woman who loves him. God has a plan for you too. Turn your life over to God and watch Him restore the mess you are in.
