The Last Bride by Beverly Lewis (Home to Hickory Hollow book #5)

Beverly Lewis' fifth and final book in the Hickory Hollow series has finally released. Read below to find out about the book (including a book trailer to watch) and my review.

From the back of the book:

Of her Old Order parents' five daughters, Tessie Miller is the last to marry. She has her heart set on Amishman Marcus King, but Tessie's father opposes the match.

Impetuously, Tessie and Marcus elope to the English world, then return to Hickory Hollow to live as singles, trusting they'll convince the Millers to give their love a chance over time. But when the unthinkable happens, Tessie faces the almost-certain censure of the People. Will she find a reason for hope in spite of her desperate plight?


Below is the book trailer for The Last Bride.


My Review:
I thought the story line was well written.  It explored the issue of waiting and trusting that the Lord can change hearts verses running ahead with you're own plans.   Tessie wants to follow her heart, but she also desires to please the Lord and her parents.  The conflict that can come when we charge ahead of what the Lord has for us can bring much heartache as seen in the lives of Tessie and Marcus. 
I think that this book was another great addition to the series.  If you love the Amish fiction genre, then make sure to pick up this set by Beverly Lewis.
