Founded by the three Bender sisters, the Amish community of Promise Lodge is thriving—and growing. In fact, residents are thrilled to welcome a charismatic new arrival—one who may not just strengthen their faith, but put it to the test . . .

When Christine Bender meets widowed Bishop Monroe Burkholder, it’s love at first sight. But Preacher Amos finds him too good to be true and is determined to find out what’s behind his sudden, unannounced arrival. Still, the colony needs a new bishop, and everyone is excited to have a younger, more progressive leader. As for Christine, Monroe returns her affection, but her bubble is soon burst with the arrival of a young woman half his age . . .

Leola Duff claims Monroe “ruined” her and she now intends to make an honest man of him. But throughout the process of discovering the truth, Christine never doubts that Monroe is the fine man she believes him to be—and never wavers in her faith that all will work out as it should. And when Monroe is forced to confess the truth before the entire congregation, he can only pray that open hearts and minds will prevail, allowing him a future at Promise Lodge—with Christine

Charlotte Hubbard and the Promise Loge series are totally new to me, and while this new order of Amish seemed to be more liberal than the Old Order books I have read before, it certainly did not stop me from enjoying the story.

I give full credit to the author for introducing mental health issues into the book, as it seems like one of the subjects that Anish Romance tends to stay away from. I also really enjoyed the spin of Bishop Monroe Burkholder (and main love interest) having secrets, it gives this book that thrilling little morsel that we all want to read in a romance book. The idea of Monroe and Christine fall in love with each other (basically) at first sight is also a wonderful breath of fresh air, and I loved it.

This book really surprised me as I tend to be more traditional in my Christian fiction, but if you only read one Amish romance this year, I totally recommend Weddings at Promise Lodge.

I give Wedding at Promise Lodge 4 stars.
