The Last Bride by Beverly Lewis is the 5th book in the series Home to Hickory Hollow. I was reading 2 books but finally this one won my complete attention. It was hard to put down.
I really enjoyed the whole series of Home to Hickory Hollow. Each book is a stand alone book but it's nice visiting with some of the previous characters.
The Last Bride is about a young woman named Tessie Ann Miller who is Old Order Amish. She is the last one to marry. She is in love with Marcus King but unfortunately her father is against it. She does not know why and continues to disobey by not ending the relationship. They still secretly court. Marcus and Tessie end up eloping. But they come back home and live as single, but with the occasional meet up at Marcus' rental house, until Marcus feels it's time to share the news of their secret marriage. He's hoping to convince Tessie's father that he's a good fellow and will care for Tessie.
Unfortunate events happen and Tessie is worried about the reaction of the Amish people. Will she end up getting shunned? Tessie then finds out the real reason for why her father was against the marriage and is worried about that issue? Why? Read and find out. I love Beverly Lewis and is my favorite Amish fiction writer. I also recommend this book to you.
I received this book for free from Bethany House Publishers in return for my honest review.
