Publisher's Summary

Martha Detweiler has a problem many Amish women her age would envy: She’s the only single woman in a community of young men, and they’re all competing for her favor. Overwhelmed by the unwanted attention, Martha finds herself constantly fleeing from her would-be suitors, dismayed at what her life has come to. Birch Creek’s resident matchmaker, Cevilla Schlabach, suggests a solution: Martha and the bishop’s son, Seth Yoder, should pretend they are dating. 

What better way to keep the other young men away? But Seth is the only man around not interested in Martha. He has a secret hobby that keeps him away from social gatherings: woodcarving. Having grown up in poverty, he’s determined to keep his father’s farm successful, even if it means he has no time for dating. Then Delilah Stoll, a new resident of Birch Creek, eyes Seth as the perfect man for her granddaughter. Suddenly, Cevilla’s proposition doesn’t seem all that ludicrous. Can Seth and Martha convince their family and friends to leave them alone?

The Farmer's Bride

it was a great story line, however, the narration was not easy to listen to. it sounded unnatural, robotic like. i bought this only because I liked the teachers bride. otherwise I wouldn't have gotten it.

Great book well worth your time.

This is a good story which portrays the simple fact that it is not really good to metal in other peoples affairs. It’s best to let things work out as they will. It is also precious just to see how the story unfolds with Martha and South. I enjoyed reading this and would definitely recommend to others as well.

Good story line

This was a good story. Really cute. However, I did not like the narrator. She made the characters sound like kids (preteens) rather than adults. That was really disappointing. But good story

great continuation of the story

I loved it, this book like the rest in the series told of God's love, and how we should show it in different ways
