Mary Ellis's A Marriage for Meghan ~ Reviewed
A MARRIAGE FOR MEGHAN
Paperback: 304 pages
Publisher: Harvest House Publishers (October 1, 2011)
Fans of superb Amish fiction will welcome the rich and moving stories of The Wayne County series by Mary Ellis, the bestselling author of Abigail’s New Hope, Never Far from Home, and The Way to a Man’s Heart.
Meghan Yost is 19, bright, and eager to prove to her father, the bishop, that she’s mature enough to teach in the Old Order district. But just when Meghan gains confidence and assurance, a troubled student challenges her authority and a male suitor challenges her patience.
Life and love tensions escalate when a string of crimes threaten the Amish community, and handsome FBI agent Thomas Mast arrives to investigate.
A Marriage for Meghan is book 2 in the Wayne County Series. It follows Meghan Yost, who wants to become the new schoolteacher in her Amish community, but due to being seen as immature by many in the town, she must share the role with her older sister, Catherine. In the meantime, as a result of her independence, she loses her best friend, Jacob Shultz, who is in love with her and wants her to marry him and settle down. While Meghan is going through this, the whole community is going through a difficult time as well. They seem to be the target of hate crimes, so FBI agent Thomas Mast is sent to the community to investigate.
This was an enjoyable book. It was fun to see the story continue from the previous book, Abigail’s New Hope. It was nice to see Meghan’s character grow, and to see her prove herself capable in the eyes of her family and community.
