She never wanted to marry. He hopes to make amends for past wrongs. Can love find a way to heal both of their hearts?Sadie Schrock swore she would never marry. All of her other Amish friends could court and marry—she was content to manage the family business and eventually take it over when her parents are ready to retire. But all of that changes when a reckless driver kills both of her parents and seriously injures her younger sister. With mounting hospital bills adding to the pile of debt her parents left behind, Sadie is left with no choice: she must marry. And not just any man—the man who saw her at her weakest and walked away.
Aden knows what his brother did to Sadie years ago was inexcusable. And every day since that incident, Aden has lived with the guilt for not intervening sooner. When he is faced with the chance to protect Sadie once again, he can’t let her down—even if it means living with the scorn of the woman he loves for the rest of his life.
Working alongside Aden at the store, Sadie realizes he isn’t the same boy who once betrayed her. Just when Sadie starts to let her guard down and perhaps develop feelings for her new husband, dangerous secrets are revealed. Now everything Sadie has worked so hard to protect is threatened, and she must find a way to save her family—and herself.
A Reluctant Bride is book one in An Amish of Birch Creek series. It is an amazing book. Kathleen has out done herself with this one. This is a great start to a new series . This is not your typical Amish tale. This is a story of power abused by church leaders and the forgiveness of the brothers. Filled with Heartache, drama, romance, and faith, this book captured me right from the start and will have you sitting on the edge of your seat from start to finish as well. It will definitely keep you anticipating the next book. I rate this book with 5 stars. For content and cover. A winner!
