Another Amish Hit from Beloved Author Beverly Lewis

Nineteen-year-old Tessie Miller is the youngest of her Old Order parents' five daughters--and the only one yet to marry. She has her heart set on Amishman Marcus Smucker, and come wedding season, they plan to tie the knot and start a family together. But Tessie's father disapproves. Ammon Miller has his reasons, and he has put his foot down. The marriage will not go forward.

Impetuously, Tessie and Marcus take matters into their own hands, eloping to exchange their vows in the fancy, English world. After a secret honeymoon, they return to their Plain community to live as singles, hoping that, in time, they can convince the Millers to give their love a chance. But when the unthinkable happens, Tessie faces the biggest challenge of her life--and the almost-certain censure of the People.

Will Tessie find a reason for hope in spite of her desperate plight?

Beverly Lewis

Beverly Lewis was born Beverly Marie Jones in 1949, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and grew up in the heart of 'Pennsylvania Dutch' country. She played and composed on the piano and wrote avidly from a very young age. Beverly's father was an Assemblies of God pastor, and she was raised in that denomination. However, she became fascinated with her ancestral links to the Old Order Mennonite community into which her maternal grandmother, Ada Buchwalter, had been born. Beverly's deep affinity for her Amish heritage has inspired much of her prodigious literary output - over eighty books for both children and adults.

Beverly graduated from Evangel University with a degree in Music Education, and became a schoolteacher. When her own three children were middle school age, Beverly began submitting stories to children's magazines. Her first book Mountain Bikes and Garbanzo Beans was published in 1993.

Beverly's first adult fiction, published in 1997, was the Heritage of Lancaster County trilogy, about the experiences of a young Amish woman Katie Lapp as she moves from the plain traditions of her upbringing into the modern world. Beverly has followed this award-winning bestseller with a stream of popular titles that have established her as one of our time's most beloved storytellers. Her titles include the Cul-De-Sac Kids, the Girls Only (GO!), and the Holly's Heart series for children, and the Amish based Rose, Seasons of Grace, Abram's Daughter, The Courtship of Nellie Fisher, and Annie's People series. She has received numerous awards including two Silver Angel Awards for her novels The Postcard and Annika's Secret Wish, and a Golden Book Award for The Shunning, the first volume of her Heritage of Lancaster County series.

Beverly is a member of the National League of American Pen Women as well as a Distinguished Alumnus of Evangel University. She says of her leisure:

"When I'm between writing deadlines, I enjoy hiking in the Rocky Mountains with my husband. Cooking from scratch, playing Mozart at the piano, and making family memory albums, as well as traveling to meet my devoted readers during book tours, are some of my very favorite things. I also adore reading biographies and memoirs, as well as classic literature."

She makes her home with her husband David in Colorado. In addition to their three adult children, they have three grandchildren.

Classic
3 stars By Bri, Apr 23 2015
The Last Bride is a classic Amish book. It delves into the life of Tessie and how she goes against her fathers wishes in order to do what she thinks right. You follow her along her journey to discover what God actually wants for her life and how she comes to make her own decisions which will take her on the right road. While you enjoy the happy ending, it is not reached without a climax which has you in tears out of the empathy the author creates.
