TheLastBrideBeverlyLewis-webAmish-fiction pioneer Beverly Lewis’ The Last Bride (Bethany House/Baker Publishing Group) debuted at No. 5 on the April 20 edition of the New York Times Trade Paperback best-seller list, reflecting sales for the week ending April 5.

In The Last Bride, Lewis tells the story of Tessie Miller, the last unmarried daughter of her Old Order parents. Tessie has her heart set on Amish man Marcus King, but her father opposes the match. Tessie and Marcus elope, then return to Hickory Hollow to live as singles, trusting they'll convince the Millers to give their love a chance. But when the unthinkable happens, Tessie faces the almost-certain censure of her people.

Lewis has more than 17 million books in print.
