A Clover Ridge Novel book 3
by Amy Lillard
-From the back cover-
Could a marriage of convenience
ever become real love?
Rachel Yoder has two choices: marry Gabriel Fisher or move to Ohio. As an orphan, she doesn't have much to offer – any match she can make would be considered a good one. She just didn't plan on Gabriel with his big hands and permanent frown.
As a widower Gabriel needs help caring for his farm and six children. But he never thought he'd marry a slip of a girl who barely reaches his chin.
Yet as time passes, Rachel finds herself thinking about a real marriage. The vows they spoke to God and each other are true enough, but will Gabriel ever be able to give his heart to Rachel?
As a reader that only enjoys SOME Amish fiction I usually try a new author with some trepidation. I quickly lost that with Gabriel's Bride. The book was new, different, and not the usual hackneyed storyline. I was pulled in with chapter one and it kept me hooked all the way through to the last page.
I really liked both Rachel and Gabriel. Rachel is sweet and genuinely tries to fit in and help her new family. Gabriel is a bit gruff and doesn't always know what to say but he loves his family very much. It was neat watching the two grow, change, and get used to each other. I really enjoyed how Amy Lillard made her characters flawed and make mistakes but still doing their best and trying to do what is right for their family.
This Book earned a 4.5 Bark rating.
Gabriel's Bride was an enjoyable story that I would recommend to any lover of Amish fiction!
