happenstance meetings between Esther and Lucas, Jacob s brother Lucas has returned home after ten years away from his Amish upbringing Esther in her struggle to let her feelings for Jacob go, resisted those emotions for Lucas Very predictably, however, Esther and Lucas fall in love.This story is written at a simplistic level that should probably be read by a young adult audience Esther is twenty three, and Lucas is twenty six, a college graduate Much of it depicts these two characters as ultra na ve and is very non believable The three Amish women that I ve known are anything but na ve and are, rather, very capable, sensible, and strong For example, the lengthy chapter s regarding Esther going head over heels excited about kid goats is extreme and anything but believable There is too much remembering going on Remember the time or Remember when and I remember are scattered abundantly throughout the book That might be because there s very little story happening and those rememberings are used for filler.Thank you to NetGalley for the opportunity to read and honestly review Never an Amish Bride So sorry I wish my review werefavorable EPUB ☩ Never an Amish Bride ♨

His love for his brother made him the man he is today, the frustration and anger towards his community and father was put across well I got the impression he wasn t happy with his way of life, and when he lost both Esther and his brother, it gave him the strength to go When they accidentally meet up, panic and confusion is uppermost in Esther s mind What is Lucas doing back here Why now Confused Esther goes back home to think about Lucas Lucas has always loved Esther, he knows she s the only woman for him But getting her to see him proves difficult, and then there is his family and council to face Does he really want to come back to this place And will Esther and his family listen and forgive him for turning his back and walking away I liked this book We had Esther and Lucas finding their way back to each other Misinformation and fear kept these two apart for too long It was nice that Lucas found his family again, forgiveness on both sides was needed, as was the long talk they had before Lucas came home If a slow burn romance is your thing, then this one is for you An entertaining and well written inspirational romance Great plot and well developed characters I look forward to readingbooks in this series I received an arc from Netgalley and the publisher and this is my unbiased review. Ophelia London is the perfect author to write an Amish romance The main characters wrestle with real struggles about faith, family and tragedy I was rooting for the characters to find joy in life after loss Being Amish doesn t mean there s a lack of exciting romance Put this on your list of summer reads NeverAnAmishBride HerBalistAs the story opens Ester Miller is deAling with the death of her fiance Jacob She is struggling with her faith as her younger sister is getting married Lucas Brenneman who has come back to town who left to become a physician assistant and has not joined the church He is struggling with his faith,his past, and fear of rejection from his family Ester tries to get information about Jacob, and Lucas is trying to keep Esther at a distance As they become close they try NeverAnAmishBride HerBalistAs the story opens Ester Miller is deAling with the death of her fiance Jacob She is struggling with her faith as her younger sister is getting married Lucas Brenneman who has come back to town who left to become a physician assistant and has not joined the church He is struggling with his faith,his past, and fear of rejection from his family Ester tries to get information about Jacob, and Lucas is trying to keep Esther at a distance As they become close they try to move forward with their lives
