The Amish Bride

Bestselling authors Mindy Starns Clark and Leslie Gould offer readers The Amish Bride, Book 3 in the Women of Lancaster County series, which tells the stories of young Plain women as they explore their roots, connect with family, and discover true love.

Ella Bayer and Ezra Gundy are in love and hope to marry someday, but she is a young Mennonite woman while he is an Amish man. Though both Plain, one of them will have to forsake what they believe to embrace another way of life.

Hoping some distance will cool the relationship, Ezra’s family sends him to work at an Amish dairy farm in Indiana. But Ella disregards what her family wants and follows Ezra. In short order she finds a place to live, a job in a bakery, and an unexpected but budding friendship with a handsome Amish farmhand, Luke. When a family tragedy forces Ella back to Pennsylvania, she must face all she’s been running away from. And once she has made peace with those around her, she has an important decision to make: Whose Amish bride will she become—Ezra’s or Luke’s?

Editorial Reviews

“This book is well-researched and the history of the Amish and Mennonite is well represented. Throughout reading this I got a history lesson yet the narration sort of ‘sneaks’ it in! This book was a joy to read.”

“Filled with fabulous twists…”
—The Midwest Book Review

“Not only do Mindy and Leslie show that the Amish are flawed human beings, who like ourselves, make mistakes and don’t always get on with their family and community, but both authors bring a wealth of information about Anabaptist and Amish history into their writing. The combination of family secrets and historical detail contained in the Women of Lancaster County books is what makes them so refreshing and original.”

The Amish Bride is yet another wonderful read in the award winning series The Women of Lancaster County by Clark and Gould. Ella's story is compelling and current, while blending the lifestyle of the Amish in a way that is not ‘quaint,’ but believable and desirable.”
