Présentation de l'éditeur

Come home to Hickory Hollow, Pennsylvania--the beloved setting where Beverly Lewis's celebrated Amish novels began--with new characters and new stories of drama, romance, and the ties that draw people together.

"Much of the credit [for the growth of Amish fiction] goes to Beverly Lewis, a Colorado author who gave birth to the genre in 1997 with The Shunning..."
--Associated Press

Joanna Kurtz has made several trips to the altar, but never as a bride. The young Amishwoman is a closet writer whose stories aren't her only secret.

Eben Troyer hopes to make Joanna his bride--if he can ever leave his parents' farm in Shipshewana, Indiana. Yet Eben's hopes to build a life with Joanna hinge on his brother's return from the English world...

"As with her other novels about the Amish, Lewis has created absorbing, realistic characters and situations, giving meaningful glimpses into their different way of living." - Congregational Libraries Today

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Decent Read 19 septembre 2012
Par A. Copulos - Publié sur Amazon.com
I know I have mentioned this before, but I am a fan of Amish fiction now- I think it is pure fascination of how an entire community lives near me, and yet I have no idea how they live and get by on a daily basis.

The first book in this series was The Fiddler, and I reviewed it here on the blog a few months ago- Beverly Lewis seems to an expert at cranking books out very quickly- she has a large fan base that buys all of her books, so I suppose that is a good reason to keep putting out many books a year.

I did love the first book in this series, but I struggled a bit with this one. I loved Joanna's character in the Fiddler- and her character didn't change, but I wasn't a fan of Eben. For as much as Joanna and Eben talked on the phone and in letters- they didn't seem to actually communicate with each other. I felt that Eben was lacking a bit in the story hero that I enjoy. This was a very short book compared to Lewis' other novels, and it felt a bit like a novella.

There was an entire second storyline of Joanna and her sister and Joanna's writing- I felt like this was never "tied up" at the end of the book. I have no idea what happened- was she still allowed to write? Did she and her sister get along better? All in all this was an enjoyable read, but this is not a Lewis book that I will revisit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Bridesmaid Home to Hickory Hollow Series by Beverly Lewis 4 décembre 2012
Par Renee K - Publié sur Amazon.com
Twenty-seven-year-old Joanna Kurtz has made several trips to the altar, but never as a bride. The single young Amishwoman is a closet writer with a longing to be published something practically unheard of in her Lancaster County community. Yet Joanna's stories aren't her only secret. She also has a beau who is courting her from afar, unbeknownst even to her sister, Cora, who, though younger, seems to have suitors to spare.

Eben Troyer is a responsible young Amishman who hopes to make Joanna Kurtz his bride--if he can ever leave his parents' farm in Shipshewana, Indiana. Yet with his only brother off in the English world, intent on a military career, Eben's hopes for building a life with his dear Joanna are dimming, and patience is wearing thin. Will Joanna ever be more than a bridesmaid?
My thoughts:

This is the second novel in the Hickory Hollow series, 'The Bridesmaid "I have read every single book written by Beverly Lewis so far and have not yet been disappointed.

The story revisits Joanna, the kind young woman who is introduced in "The Fiddler," the first book of this series. I enjoy reading stories of characters I've previously met in other books. It feels like you are visiting and old friend.
Joanna is and inspiring character with lots of faith. Watching her put all of her trust in God despite all the trails that kept coming her way.

I would of love to have seen Eben and Joanna get together in person more. The long distance relationship did somewhat make the story get drawn out. The majority of this story was about Joanna and not Eben. Overall, I enjoyed this story and look forward to the next book in the story.

You do not need to read the first first book to read this one. It stands on it's own just like all of Beverly Lewis's books do.

This book has been provided to me my by Bethany House Publisher free of charge and in no way was I asked to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

This book barely held my interest. I have read all of Beverly Lewis' other books, and loved them. This one had a very simplistic plot by comparison.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 A tapestry of love & life in an old order Amish community 13 mai 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

There is a superstition among the Amish that being a bridesmaid too often before you're engaged or married will mean you won't get married, & this is the theme of the story - but the richness of the setting blends other aspects of life in the Amish community in the story. Rigid adhherence to the law of the community (the "Ordnung") & the Bible is explored with respect for all viewpoints, the reader is left to his/her own conclusions through the lives of the characters. Both positive & questionable or even negative applications of a strict vs a more lenient point of view run through the story like threads in a weaver's loom. The story shows how easily reputations can be ruined when gossip about a person becomes the basis for a rigid application of the Bible's & the Community's laws, especially when speculation replaces fact. This story is much more than a story of love, or of resistance to superstition. It's a story about a love that crosses 2 different Amish communities;; it's a story about how the settings affect that love; it's a story about how we use the gifts God gave each of us to glorify Him.
Each book in the Hickory Hollow series can be read separately & in any order, although reading them in order might make more sense for some of the stories. The series is a sort of "spin off" of another of Beverly Lewis's series-part of the backdrop of the story has to do with a baptized Amish girl who turns her back on the church, is shunned as a result, & who became Mennonite. She & her family are woven into the background of all these stories. The role of faith in God in overcoming daily challenges will inspire you to improve your own walk with the Lord.
I have read reviews that have mentioned an almost "Deus ex Machina" coincidence in these book series. Someone once said that a coincidence was a fortuitous circumstance where God chose to remain anonymous. There have been some pretty "convenient" coincidences in my life - I call them "answers to prayer," or God acting on my behalf in ways I could not have anticipated or prayed for. This is, after all, an inspirational book about an Amish community. God's intervention should be an expected part - & the "convenient placement" of these interventions should be considered evidence of God's care for His people IMO.
