An Amish celebration . . .
Since the moment her father died, Beth Mast has devoted body and soul to the care of her stepmother and stepsister—cooking, cleaning, and caring for their animals. So her friend Lucy’s wedding to the eldest King brother offers a welcome respite. Shy and unaware of her beauty, Beth harbors a secret sadness she hopes no one can see. But at this gathering she’s on display: her assigned escort happens to be the handsomest bachelor in their Amish community.
Newly returned to Ice Mountain, Ransom King has no interest in the maedels pursuing him. Haunted by events during his five-year apprenticeship in Ohio, he’s startled to find a kindred spirit in Beth, whose dutiful ways can’t mask her inner glow. Ransom longs to show her how much she deserves happiness, though his own troubled history holds him back. It will take Ransom’s feisty Aenti Ruth and her ragtag menagerie to entice these two guarded hearts to open to love . . .

An Amish Wedding Feast on Ice Mountain is the sixth book in The Amish of Ice Mountain series. It can be read as a standalone for those new to this Amish series. It is a Cinderella type story with Beth Mast taking care of her stepmother and stepsister without so much as a please or thank you. The stepmother, Viola is critical of Beth who is a caring and shy individual. Rose, Beth’s stepsister, is beautiful and outgoing. Her mother wishes her to make a good match which means keeping Beth in the shadows. I felt bad for the way Beth was treated. I was happy when Ransom King enters the picture and sets out to help Beth and ensure that she has some fun. The book contains good writing and it moved along quickly. There are sad moments along with heartwarming ones. There is humor thanks to my favorite character, Aenti Ruth. Aenti Ruth arrives with a passel of animals that help her with Ransom and Beth. I like how kind she was to Beth and the special recipe she gave her. I laughed so often at her antics. I also like Bishop Umble. He is such a kindly man who cares for his flock. I loved the descriptions of Ice Mountain especially the beautiful ice cave. I was disappointed with the amount of kissing (some steamy situations) and intimate innuendo that was present along with the forward Rose. I like to read Amish fiction because they are clean stories (minimal kissing is fine). I also would have liked a more complete epilogue. This was a good ending to The Amish of Ice Mountain series. An Amish Wedding Feast on Ice Mountain is a sweet story about love, forgiveness, grace, hope and faith.
