Wonderful And Warm
Amish Brides is a trio of stories that will warm the reader’s heart. All three are similar but different, having themes in common. They are light hearted and highly amusing reads. Matchmaking can happen whether you are eight or eighty! I really enjoyed this trio of feel-good reads.
The Reluctant Groom by Jennifer Beckstrand is a delightful tale to begin this collection. It is full of humour, laughter and love. Matchmaking by an elderly grandparent certainly warms the heart. “All young men should be married before they make nuisances of themselves.” Reminiscent of the opening of Pride And Prejudice. It is also a study in grief. Grief that threatens to overwhelm. Grief that causes more guilt than happy memories. “I feel guilty even enjoying this cheese because Mary can’t.” We need to be happy because the person lived and not sad because they died. The Reluctant Groom was a wonderful, warm read that made the reader feel good.
