Second Chance Amish Bride: Review by Susan Scott Ferrell


Second Chance Amish Bride – Wrong Title, Fantastic Read

Marta Perry has been on the Amish genre scene for a while now. She’s had some really good ones (with Keepers of the Promise series among them.) So when I was given the opportunity to review her newest release, Second Chance Amish Bride, I wondered: Would it be up to par with her other writings? Yes – and then some!

Second Chance Amish Bride tells the story of Amish maedel Jessie Millier. She’s not a spring chicken – she’s in her 30s <gasp>! But Jessie is satisfied with her station in life.

Caleb King is wheelchair bound (hopefully temporarily), due to an accident. His wife abandoned him, and then came home to die. He has kids that need a little TLC. When his late wife’s cousin Jessie (yes, that one) arrives at Caleb’s place, he is outraged and wants nothing to do with her. But what can he do? And don’t forget: The Amish Grapevine is alive and well and causing LOTS of drama!

Can Caleb forgive his late wife? Can he get over his bitterness? Will Jessie be able to answer her heart’s cry, and fulfill the wishes of her late cousin? Read and find out!

I was given Second Chance Amish Bride in exchange for my honest review. The characters were complex and the storylines were gripping. My only criticism is the novel’s title, which does not seem to aptly describe the book. That being said, I absolutely love Second Chance Amish Bride, and it is my favorite Marta Perry novel to-date!

Susan Ferrell and her husband make their home in the Atlanta Metro area. Although Susan struggles with chronic migraine headaches, she stays very busy as a stay-at-home mom to one very precocious little girl. While catching her breath, she feeds her Amishaholic tendencies by reading vast amounts of Amish literature!
