Welcome to charming Honey Brook, Pennsylvania, where bestselling author Ophelia London will bring you on a moving and unforgettable journey through faith, forgiveness, and ultimately love.
Everything changed for Esther Miller with the death of her beloved fiancé, Jacob. Even years later, she still struggles with her faith and purpose in the small, tight-knit Amish village of Honey Brook—especially now that her younger sister is getting married. All she wants is to trust in the Lord to help her find peace…but peace is the last thing she gets when Lucas, Jacob’s wayward older brother, returns to town.
Lucas Brenneman has been harboring a secret for years—the real reason he never returned from Rumspringa and the truth behind his brother Jacob’s death. Honey Brook still calls to him, but he knows his occupation as a physician’s assistant must take precedence. With sweet and beautiful Esther he finds a comfort he’s never known, and he feels like anything is possible…even forgiveness. But she was Jacob’s bride-to-be first. And if she knew the truth, would she ever truly open her heart to him?
USA Today bestselling author Ophelia London brings a sweet, heartfelt, and surprisingly funny take to the popular Amish romance cannon.
NEVER AN AMISH BRIDE is the first book in the Honey Brook series. While reading NEVER AN AMISH BRIDE I became emotionally invested in all of the characters. They are all flawed, real and lovable! Once I started reading, I was instantly hooked. I devoured every page and couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. This not so typical Amish story is filled with secrets, faith struggles, small town gossip, but also love, family, and second chances.
I quickly flew through NEVER AN AMISH BRIDE and when I finished I found myself wanting more. I loved all of the characters and found myself wanting to travel to Honey Brook. The tender moments in the story really pull at the readers heart strings. Esther Miller is struggling to accept her fiance’s death, her younger sister getting married, and her fiance’s brothers attention. Esther tries to get Lucas to open up about what happened to Jacob and Lucas is trying to protect Esther from learning the truth!
In NEVER AN AMISH BRIDE I loved Lucas and Esther, the primary characters, but also fell in love with all of the secondary characters as well. Every one of them has an important part to play in this heart warming story and even though I wanted to reach in and shake one or two of them every now and then, they all weaseled their way into my heart. My emotions were all over the place and I was even reaching for the tissues quite a few times. Lucas is hiding from something in the past and is afraid of being exposed at any moment. Will he learn to forgive himself and begin to live again?
