About this book:

“Twenty-five-year-old Joanna Kurtz has made several trips to the altar, but never as a bride. The single young Amish woman is a closet writer with a longing to be published something practically unheard of in her Lancaster County community. Yet Joanna's stories aren't her only secret. She also has a beau who is courting her from afar, unbeknownst even to her sister, Cora, who, though younger, seems to have suitors to spare.
Eben Troyer is a responsible young Amish man who hopes to make Joanna Kurtz his bride--if he can ever leave his parents' farm in Shipshewana, Indiana. Yet with his only brother off in the English world, intent on a military career, Eben's hopes for building a life with his dear Joanna are dimming, and patience is wearing thin. Will Joanna ever be more than a bridesmaid?”

My personal Rating- 
(and a half)

Just like the first book in this series, “The Fiddler” (review here!), “The Bridesmaid” is a good clean book for 12 and up. It might not keep the interest of Pre & New Teens since it’s about marrying and courtship, but if you like that kind of book you’d probably love it! :)
