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?

another wonderful listen!
Beverly Lewis new book
probably not, I like it but too much repartition
I really cannot compare it to other Beverly Lewis book as this was much slower and just did not have the punch for me.
She does a very good job but the wording is always the same so it is hard to explain, read it for yourself and see what you think
Yes,, when she gives birth to a baby fathered by Marcus.
A slow story
, but perhaps that is just my feeling
