About the Book
A young Amish woman finds herself torn between the man she's pledged to wed and the man her heart desires in this heartwarming story of chance, duty, and choice in the face of love—the first volume in beloved New York Times bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray's new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series
Amish bride-to-be Leona is thrilled to be in Florida, on a mini vacation in the pretty town of Pinecraft. Her girlfriends think she's happy because she's away from the stress of wedding planning. They have no idea that Leona's real joy is in being away from her fiancé.
Edmund is a good man and will make a decent husband . . . just not for Leona. The more time she spends with him and his overbearing ways, the less she wants to be his wife. Her cousins are sure Edmund is the right man for her—and their certainty makes Leona begin to doubt herself. But when a chance encounter with a wayward cat brings her face-to-face with a handsome, fun-loving Amish man named Zachary Kaufmann, Leona's faced with two vastly different futures.
Leona must decide: Should she follow the path set out before her? Or take a chance with only the promise of what could be to guide her?

The Promise of Palm Grove book one in the Amish Brides of Pinecraft series was a delight to read. Author Shelley Shepard Gray has written a story that will captivate the heart of readers from page one. With her charmingly-written story and well-developed and easy to relate to characters, Shelley has once again produced a novel that readers will enjoy not only a first time, but will want to come back and read it over and over again. I would recommend this novel to not only fans of Shelley’s previous novels, but to those that love inspiring Amish-fiction.
