Belle: An Amish Retelling of Beauty and the Beast (An Amish Fairytale #1) Read Online Free - In author Sarah Price's fresh and inspirational retelling of a beloved classic, a dutiful young Amish woman agrees to marry a notorious recluse for her family's sake--but the consequences are more than either bargained for . . .
To most townsfolk, he's known simply as The Beast. Annabelle Beiler has little interest in gossip, but she's heard about Adam Herschberger's scars and his gruff, solitary ways. Though he sounds like a character from one of Belle's treasured books, the man is real and, it turns out, just as unreasonable as the rumors claim. When a buggy accident wipes out the last of her daed's money, forcing him to sell their farm, Adam buys it. Then he offers Belle a deal--marry him, and her family can keep their home.
Everyone is shocked by Belle's decision, but she's determined to be a good fraa, cleaning Adam's rundown house and tending the overgrown garden. Breaking through her new husband's icy reserve will be another matter. Belle's courage and strength are abundant, but it will take true faith to guide Adam back to the heart of his Amish community--and to the loving marriage they both deserve.

True confession: I'm a tad shy of giddy over this new series. First off -- I adore fairy tale retellings -- I'm kind of compulsively crazy about them so I get butterflies in my tummy whenever I discover one in the Christian Fiction genre. But to add Amish into the mix? Be still my heart. It won't...

A delightful retelling of a classic story “Beauty and the Beast” and the author does it with an Amish twist.
Sarah Price helps us understand that people are fallen, and being a member of a religious community, does not guarantee that they all live their faith.
Surprises abound as Belle begins her...

Honestly, all buggies look alike to me. I will have to take more notice the next time I'm in Lancaster.
Belle walked? Yikes.
Her sisters sound really selfish and childish.
I bet Adam lives in the stables.
Three hours at church?
She sure cries a lot.
This is a sad wedding. But I think she should give Ad...

Although it was naturally a little predictable being based on a fairy tale, it was a nice read:)

I like this book. It wasn't as dramatic as I had anticipated but it was a pleasant read. I will probably read the others in the series. It is good to cleanse the palate occasionally with a book that doesn't contain graphic sex and/or violence.

* I received a copy of this book via the Goodreads giveaway *
First of all, I knew next to nothing about the Amish. They live in a world which is so far removed from my surroundings. Unfortunately, the only things I did know about the Amish, (besides the obvious stereotypes) I learned from Weird A...
