A Daughter's Dream (The Charmed Amish Life #2) by Shelley Shepard Gray -- Book Tour Review + 5 Book Giveaway
About the Book
A young teacher and farmer discover they have much in common, especially when it comes to healing old wounds from the past . . . and finding love in one another.
Rebecca Kinsinger has always dreamed of being a teacher. But when she’s given the opportunity she’s been waiting for at Charm Amish School, she’s dismayed to discover that teaching is hard work—work she’s afraid she’s not very good at.
That is, until Lilly Yoder joins the class. A thirteen-year old who’s just lost her parents, Lilly is in need of someone like Rebecca. For the first time since starting her new job, Rebecca feels a sense of purpose. But when she meets Lilly’s uncle, Jacob, his good looks and sweet, easy-going temperament are hard to ignore. How can she even entertain romantic thoughts of Jacob when his niece is her student?
Suddenly becoming Lily’s sole caregiver, Jacob Yoder never thought he’d be a single parent—or a farmer. Having been living in Florida as a carpenter, Jacob feels more at home wielding a hammer than a backhoe. The only bright spot in his life is Rebecca Kinsinger. As Lily and Rebecca develop a bond, Jacob’s fondness for the pretty teacher grows, too.
But when a fateful accident brings them together, Rebecca and Jacob must choose between duty and desire. Will they follow the path before them? Or set out to find true happiness . . . and true love?
About the Author
Shelley Shepard Gray is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, a finalist for the American Christian Fiction Writers prestigious Carol Award, and a two-time HOLT Medallion winner. She lives in southern Ohio, where she writes full-time, bakes too much, and can often be found walking her dachshunds on her town’s bike trail.
Shelley Shepard Gray has written an excellent book two in the Charmed Amish Life Series, A Daugher’s Dream. I love how this story brings to life the characters and life events that readers will easily relate to. One theme in the book is dealing with the death of a loved one and the grieving process that goes along with that. Another theme is dreams. Sometimes we have dreams and they take a turn in a different direction and we have to grab on to a new dream. This is not always easy. But is sometimes for the best. Shelley is talented in writing stories that bring to life raw emotions. This novel is about dealing with changes in life and overcoming pain. Readers will not only love the story, but the wonderful and delightful realistic characters. I recommend this novel to readers that enjoy Amish, Christian fiction.
