BOOK NOOK REVIEWS: Kathleen Fuller

Title: A Reluctant Bride
Author: Kathleen Fuller
Publisher: Thomas Nelson Publishing
Ages: Adult


Sadie Schrock wants to be left alone and be able to take over the family business when her parents are ready to retire. But all of her other Amish friends are courting and marrying,  while she is being pressured to consider a marriage proposal from someone who tried to attack her six years earlier.

At first Sadie stays strong to her chosen path but the tragic death of her parents by a reckless driver and her younger sister’s mounting hospital bills force Sadie to do something she swears she will never do…marry. Not to just anyone, but to the brother of the man who attacked her years before. Only time and faith can heal old wounds and allow two wedded strangers a chance at falling in love.

Why I think you should read it:

Stories written from an Amish point of view will always capture my attention. It’s my natural curiosity for another culture and Ms. Fuller’s book does not disappoint. Full of cultural references as well as suspense and romance, A RELUCTANT BRIDE will leave readers eagerly turning the next page to see if this reluctant bride stays reluctant for long. A good addition to any library.

Blurb: Addie comes from a long line of readers or "story catchers" as her family likes to call themselves. Every time Addie tries to catch a story on her own the wiggly words play tricks on her. She tries different ways to make those words sit still but it will take a little faith for Addie to become the next STORY CATCHER.


  1. This sounds like a good story for winter reading.
