Review: The Teacher’s Bride by Kathleen Fuller

the teacher's brideThe Teacher’s Bride was an interesting story, in that the two main characters were ones who really struggled with how to interact with other people, especially those of the opposite sex.

Well, Christian Ropp actually struggled with his interactions with everyone. Although very book smart, he lacked understanding and compassion toward those who didn’t do things as he felt that they should be done. He was a bit hard for me to like for a large portion of the book.

I liked Ruby Glick a lot and felt sorry for her when clumsiness or hiccups occurred during intense bouts of nervousness. She was a fun character and I was very happy for her when she finally found something that she could be passionate about and good at.

The storyline with Christian’s sister, Selah, was compelling. I was happy to see how the author added it into the book in a way that allowed us to get a more personal view of Christian’s feelings, while also addressing what was going on with Selah.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


the teacher's brideIf there is one thing Christian Ropp will not allow in his classroom—or his life—it is chaos. So why is he drawn to Ruby Glick, a woman who seems to bring mayhem wherever she goes?

Christian Ropp moves to Birch Creek to accept a teaching position in the rapidly growing Amish community. He’s determined to put the rambunctious school in order as well as check another task off his list: finding a wife. Of course, that would be much easier if women were like textbooks, straightforward and logical.

When an accident puts Christian out of commission, a new community member named Ruby Glick takes over his classroom. But Ruby’s exuberant teaching style clashes with Christian’s careful methods and he worries his students will never be the same.

With a track record of catastrophe, Ruby always feels too clumsy, too distracted, too . . . much. Desperate for a chance to prove that she can do more than make mistakes in her life, she throws herself into her new teaching position. But when Christian can’t seem to stay out of her way, she finds herself slipping into old, chaotic tendencies.

What she doesn’t anticipate is that Christian’s heart is slowly catching up with his mind—and she, too, must decide whether to follow logic or love.
