Never an Amish Bride (available now in paperback & digital!!)



Welcome to charming Honey Brook, Pennsylvania, where bestselling author Ophelia London will bring you on a moving and unforgettable journey through faith, forgiveness, and ultimately love.

Everything changed for Esther Miller with the death of her beloved fiancé, Jacob. Even years later, she still struggles with her faith and purpose in the small, tight-knit Amish village of Honey Brook—especially now that her younger sister is getting married. All she wants is to trust in the Lord to help her find peace…but peace is the last thing she gets when Lucas, Jacob’s wayward older brother, returns to town.

Lucas Brenneman has been harboring a secret for years—the real reason he never returned from Rumspringa and the truth behind his brother Jacob’s death. Honey Brook still calls to him, but he knows his occupation as a physician’s assistant must take precedence. With sweet and beautiful Esther he finds a comfort he’s never known, and he feels like anything is possible…even forgiveness. But she was Jacob’s bride-to-be first. And if she knew the truth, would she ever truly open her heart to him?

“Of all the Amish novels I have read, this most-definitely ranks up there as one of the best!!! The character development is spot-on! The sweetness of the story mixed with the Englisher vs Amish love triangle is perfect! I literally didn’t want to put this book down!  I wish I could give it TEN stars!” -Paige T., Goodreads

“Such a sweet story of heartbreak, redemption and finding our place in the mist of it all. The characters are well developed and relatable. Esters internal struggle of wanting to do right but also be true to herself was a story anyone reading can identify with. This book was a lovely journey from start to finish.” -Nikki H., NetGalley

“Never an Amish Bride is well written inspirational romance.  Great plot with well-crafted characters.” -Marcia S., Goodreads

Ophelia London is the perfect author to write an Amish romance. The main characters wrestle with real struggles about faith, family and tragedy. I was rooting for the characters to find joy in life after loss. Being Amish doesn’t mean there’s a lack of exciting romance. Put this on your list of summer reads!” -Jen, Goodreads
