Author: Vannetta Chapman

Genre: Inspirational Amish Fiction
She’ll find him a wife for Christmas…Which of these Indiana Amish Brides is next?
With her wedding business thriving, Annie Kauffmann could never leave her beloved Amish community. So when handsome Amish cowboy Levi Lapp tries to convince her father to move the family to Texas, she must put a stop to it. If Annie finds Levi a wife, he might forget his dream of moving…but can she keep from falling for him herself?
Annie felt tears sting her eyes again.
Was this what being in love was like?
Emotions seesawing between tenderness and despair?
No wonder she’d avoided it for so long.
“I’m not saying you will or won’t have to give up one dream for the other. I don’t know, but I do know this. Gotte has a plan for you, Annie.” Nicole reached over and squeezed her hand.
It wasn’t lost on Annie that Levi had referred to the same verse the night before.
“And who can thwart Gotte’s plan? Who is big enough to do that? No one. No one can. So it will work out. Your job is to believe that, and continue to go about your day doing that day’s work.”
“When did you become so wise?”
“Sometime between Rachel and the twins I suppose.”
Annie didn’t know if she believed that things would work out. Did the Bible promise that? It seemed to her that there was a lot of heartbreak and tragedy and pain in the Bible—even for Gotte’s people. Perhaps when they returned home, she’d spend some time reading through her favorite passages in the New Testament or the Psalms. The Psalms always calmed her heart. Maybe it was time to accept her situation and trust that Gotte could and would do whatever was best for her.
“It’s okay to change your mind about a thing or person. Sometimes first impressions aren’t be best. Sometimes we have to see past that impression to the scars and hopes and dreams underneath, and then we understand who they really are. ”
I received a copy of this book for my honest opinion. All opinions expressed here are mine.
