The Amish Bride of Ice Mountain by Kelly Long - Review of the first book in the Ice Mountain series

(taken from
Like most Mountain Amish girls, Mary King has always dreamed of her wedding day. But she never imagined that a sudden, irresistible kiss would result in marriage to the handsome Englischer professor studying her unique community. Or that doing the truly honorable thing means keeping their relationship chaste so both she and Dr. Jude Lyons can someday go their separate ways.

But when Mary accompanies her husband-in-name-only to Atlanta to meet his wealthy, overbearing family, she's tempted more than ever by Jude's kindness, humor--and vulnerability. And when a wrenching misunderstanding causes her to return heartbroken to her remote Appalacian home, she's certain she's lost the real love they have found...and the shared future she's come to want so much. But a crisis of more than faith will work surprising miracles--and show Mary that love is strong enough to make the impossible come true.

Oh my, oh my, oh my!!! This was one wonderful story and such a different take on the 'normal' Amish book. Kelly does a fantastic job and has you shaking your head and crying throughout. She just pulls you right in and you are experiencing the feelings of the characters. There is a lot going on with the families and community of this couple and how they handle things is really amazing. I highly recommend this book as an excellent read.
