    1. Rebecca's Bouquet is the 1st book in a new Amish Series. I instantly liked Rebecca from the very beginning of the book. Even though she didn't want to leave her home or her family, she followed her heart to be by her Future Husbands side. Being with him at his Parent's house was both stressed and a new experienced. Being Amish living in a englisher's home, feeling your life is in danger, second thoughts about if you future husband will stay and having an English female openly flirt with him. All [...]

    5. Insomnia? or is it just that this book was so good, so compelling and interesting that I simply HAD to stay awake and keep reading to the very last word? I love finding a book that is draws me in so quickly that I want to read it so badly. Like Rebecca, I remember being 18 and so in love that I simply couldn't imagine the thought of being away from the man that I loved and planned to marry. It just feels heartbreaking and unbearable.Loyalty to the father William feels deserted him over 10 years [...]

    12. When I read the blurb for (i>Rebecca’s Bouquet I was immediately interested in reading the book.

    15. This book was ok. This author is new to me. Her writing style is certainly different from other Amish writers and that is what makes her unique William and Rebecca learn some life's lessons along the way about forgiveness even though someone has made a mistake.

    17. The basic plot of a couple of teenagers going to help a shunned relative was good, but the execution was lacking. I was disappointed. The characters spend a lot of time in thought and the scene changes were awkward. I believe that this was meant to mimic real life but it didn't work for me. I could not feel any empathy for Rebecca and I think I was supposed to. At times I felt the writing was for a younger audience and that the author was trying to lecture me through her characters. It was a boo [...]
