Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Beloved and bestselling author of Amish romance Kathleen Fuller reminds us that sometimes opposites really do attract.

"A heartwarming story of unexpected romance woven with fun and engaging characters who come to life on every page."--Amy Clipston, bestselling author of A Seat by the Hearth

If 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.

"Kathleen Fuller has written a sweet, oftentimes humorous, romance that reminds readers that the perfect match might be right in front of their noses."--Kelly Irvin, bestselling author of the Every Amish Season series

"Kathleen Fuller is a master storyteller and fans will absolutely fall in love with Ruby and Christian in The Teacher's Bride." --Ruth Reid, bestselling author of the Amish Mercies series

"Kathy Fuller's characters leap off the page with subtle power as she uses both wit and wisdom to entertain!"--Kelly Long, national bestselling author

"The story will captivate you from the first page to the last with Ruby, Christian, and engaging characters. You'll laugh, gasp, and wonder what will happen next." --Molly Jebber, Speaker and Award Winning Author of Grace's Forgiveness and the Amish Keepsake Pocket Quilt Series

Includes discussion questions.

Booklist Review

Ruby Glick comes to Birch Creek to live with her brother and his family while looking for a husband. She is at loose ends, having struggled with mishaps in the past. Her brother is wary of having her live with his family, but his wife encourages her to discover meaningful work and to socialize. Teacher Christian Ropp enjoys his work, though he struggles to find his place in the community. He and Ruby become friends, and she discovers that she also enjoys working with children. When they decide to help each other find marriage partners, they soon fall in love. Fuller's appealing Amish romance deals with some serious issues, including depression, yet it also offers funny and endearing moments.--Amy Alessio Copyright 2018 Booklist
