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?

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
I love Christian fiction and cozy mysteries. I'm blind now, so I listen to all my books.
All of Mrs. Lewis's books are excellent.
I really enjoyed Tessie. She had such a strong presence to do the right thing.
She did an excellent job. My husband listened to the entire book, too. This was due to the talents of both the author and narrator.
I've always loved the setting of Hickory Hollow. I also love the Wise Woman. I admired the character of Mr. Smucker. Looking forward to more by the author and narrator. Enjoy!
