Rebekah's Dress by Sara Harris


An impending wedding. A sudden sickness. A Rumspringa gone wrong.

As Rebekah and Joseph's wedding draws closer, their happiness starts to collapse. Can they bring order back to their gentle world before they say I do?

As Rebekah and Joseph's wedding day draws nearer, her only worry is how she will sew her wedding dress until things take a drastic turn. First, a sickness threatens the Stoll family, then her saucy nemesis, Katie Knepp, goes missing during her Rumspringa.

Rebekah is haunted by the worry that Katie's disappearance is a desperate effort to sway Joseph's affections her way before he can marry Rebekah. Still, Rebekah agrees to journey with Joseph and her brother, Peter, from Gasthof Village, Indiana to New York City in an attempt to locate Katie and hopefully bring her home. However, as Rebekah already knows, whenever the Englischer world is involved, nothing is plain and simple. 



About The Author


Sara Harris, formerly known as Sara Barnard, is a native west Texan, conservationist, mother of six youngsters, certified teacher and certifiable Gypsy. Sara and her children have made their home in places all over the world, from the beautiful Oklahoma plains to the eclectic mountains of Vicenza, Italy.

Sara began writing in the third grade and realized her passion for the pen (er, pencil) when she won first place in an essay contest. The subject was animals and Sara wrote about the life and untimely death of her beloved tomcat, J. Thomas O'Malley. Too embarrassed to listen to her essay being read aloud at the P.T.A. meeting, Sara hid in the hallway until the assembly was over.  In the sixth grade, Sara had her tonsils out and received as a gift from her parents, a copy of Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove, which proved very influential to her in good times and bad.

The pull of adventures just waiting to be had coupled with her love and admiration for nature and the wilderness kept Sara on the move during her teenage summers with The Student Conservation Association. From Alaska to the wilds of New Mexico, Sara has piloted small aircraft, counted bats, tracked mountain lions, relocated rattlesnakes, hiked with black bears, and fallen in love over and over again with the roads less traveled. 

After earning her degree in History, Sara experienced the scariest adventure of all: children. 

Three little ones later, Sara decided to put finger to keyboard and wrote her first novel, A Heart on Hold, which then turned into a four-book series.

The many revisions and edits that took place next weren't entirely completed until well after her fourth baby was born. Despite a couple of rounds with cancer, her publication list has grown to include Civil War Romance, Amish Romance, Amish Adventure, anthology pieces, Christian Western, YA Time Travel, Light Horror, Native American Middle Grade fiction, Children's Nonfiction, picture books, and even more to come!

Now, Sara and her beautiful family (and their pack of rescue animals) make their home in Katy, Texas. 

She is a member of the Romance Writers of America, Hearts Through History, West Houston Romance Writers of America, Catholic Writer's Guild, The Transylvanian Society of Dracula, and Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, and The Western Fictioneers.



My Review

 Rebecca’s Dress is the second book in this series, and the first that I have read. It is a really different story from most of the Amish books that I have read, but sure will keep your attention.
Rebecca and Joseph are about to marry, and Rebecca still needs to make hers and her attendants dresses.
Circumstances enter, medical emergencies, missing friends, and adventures no one would have expected, also the meeting of famous individuals!
Will all return, will there be a wedding, these and other questions are answered, and we are along for the journey. With kind hearts and surprises, and worry in the back of their minds, and gifts from those along the way, we get to experience the results of love given to them.
I received this book through Net Galley and an ARC provided by Victory Editing NetGalley Co-op
