Amish bride-to-be Leona is on
vacation in Florida away from fiancé Edmond who is overbearing and believing a woman’s place is to obey the instructions of her husband not allowing the wife to follow her own dreams. The more time Leona spends with Edmond she realizes that being his wife is not quite what she wants because of his views regarding what married life should be.
Leona meets a young man named Zachary and notices the difference between him and Edmond. Being with Zachary brings happiness to Leona resulting in doubtful thoughts to the marriage plans with Edmond already in place. Trying to decide which path to choose, Leona’s friends try to convince her that Edmond is the best choice. How will Leona decide which man to choose in sharing the rest of her future?
The Promise of Palm Grove is book one in the Amish Brides of Pinecraft fictional series that will show one woman’s view of marriage. I enjoyed reading Leona’s dilemma of making a promise to marry an overbearing man while encountering another man with an opposite personality than that of her betrothed. I recommend to readers and book lovers of Christian fiction for a delightful story of love, dilemmas, and making the right choices for your life.
