Description

Three best-selling authors. Three possible brides. Three separate tales. They come together for an Amish wedding.

Priscilla King has dreamed of being married to Chester Lapp since she was sixteen. With the help of her sister Naomi’s matchmaking skills, Chester proposes to Priscilla on her nineteenth birthday. As the wedding day approaches, problems emerge: an attendant with poison ivy, a failed celery crop, and a torn wedding dress.

At the same time, Priscilla’s best friend Rose is convinced her fiancé is hiding something and she is intent on discovering the truth at any cost.

Naomi remains hopeful that she, too, will soon find her perfect match. When Chester’s cousin shows up, there’s an immediate attraction between him and Naomi—as well as an obstacle that may just as immediately derail their blossoming love.

Is God sending a message to stop the wedding? What is certain is that the hearts of these three women will be forever transformed by this touching Amish wedding.

A Perfect Secret

  1. Why do we often pretend to be someone different, in some aspect, even with those we love?
  2. How does Luke's mother's death undergird his decisions in life?
  3. Why does Rose enjoy being the "Rob in the hood" for a change? What does this say about her personality?
  4. What is it about your life that God is "perfecting" at this time?
  5. What is potentially dangerous about secrets in a relationship?
  6. How does Rose's relationship with her Aunt Tabby bring balance to her life? Who helps you in this way?
  7. Why do weddings create such stress and expectation in life?

 

 

A Perfect Match

  1. Zeke has confidence, but also humility. He's not conceited, and he doesn't doubt God's sovereignty in his life. How do you think Zeke acquired this complete faith and trust?
  2. Do you think Zeke's parents' strained relationship has any bearing on him remaining a bachelor longer than most Amish men? Why or why not?
  3. What did Naomi do to avoid dealing with David's betrayal? Do you think she will still struggle with trust, even after she and Zeke are married? If so, how can God do to help her heal and learn to trust again?
  4. Margaret was tongue-tied around Zeke initially, but then became comfortable around him. She was then able to accept Ben Hooley's interest in her. What made Margaret change?

 

 

A Perfect Plan

  1. Priscilla wants to have a perfect wedding day, but she loses sight of what's really important. How might things have been different if she hadn't let worry creep into her heart?
  2. Chester likes that Priscilla is organized and structured, but is there ever a point when he wonders if her need for perfection will do harm to their relationship?
  3. Rachel writes letters to both Priscilla and Chester, letters that hit on exactly what they are both feeling prior to the wedding. Do you think God is speaking to Priscilla and Chester through Rachel? Has this ever happened to you or to someone you know?
  4. In what ways does an Amish wedding differ from a traditional Englisch wedding? Is there anything about an Amish wedding that you think should be incorporated into an Englisch wedding? Or vice-versa?
