Please join us this month as we read The Amish Bride of Ice Mountain by Kelly Long.

The Amish Bride of Ice Mountain by Kelly Long

Hopefully, Kelly will join us if we have any questions since she nominated this book.

Like most Mountain Amish girls, Mary King has always dreamed of her wedding day. But she never imagined that a sudden, irresistible kiss would result in marriage to the handsome Englischer professor studying her unique community. Or that doing the truly honorable thing means keeping their relationship chaste so both she and Dr. Jude Lyons can someday go their separate ways.

But when Mary accompanies her husband-in-name-only to Atlanta to meet his wealthy, overbearing family, she's tempted more than ever by Jude's kindness, humor--and vulnerability. And when a wrenching misunderstanding causes her to return heartbroken to her remote Appalachian home, she's certain she's lost the real love they have found...and the shared future she's come to want so much. But a crisis of more than faith will work surprising miracles--and show Mary that love is strong enough to make the impossible come true.

I had a hard time with the first of this book but about 1/2 way through it really took off. And I really fell in love with the characters. There is a rape scene and mostly lust but I really did not find any of it bad and something I would not read. I did have an issue with the marriage to start with. I thought you had to be a baptized member of the Amish church yet the Amish bishop marries them without him being a member. I also thought it funny that he thought they could get an annulment even though he knew that the Amish did not believe in divorce. Personally I really enjoyed the book.

Carolyn E | 239 comments I actually found the Bishop very refreshing. He was not so rigid in his beliefs, and was willing to bend the rules in order to resolve a difficult situation.

Tina Watson | 222 comments I agree with both of Carolyn E's comments, loved the book, can't wait for book 2, and same feeling on the Bishop.
