The Expectant Bride

AbramNaomi Wittmer can’t imagine spending her life with any of the boring beaus her small Amish community offers. When rumored wild man Willis Beiler comes to Kent County, Delaware for the harvest season, she finally experiences the kind of passionate romance she’s been dreaming of. Their Plain fairy tale takes an unforeseen turn when Naomi becomes pregnant. The couple plans to marry, but first they must face rejection by their families and discipline from the church. Paved with quirky neighbors, morning sickness, and unexpected grace, Naomi’s path to the altar is nothing like she expected.
