About the Book
Penny Troyer never disobeys her parents. But tonight she's bending the rules because Michael Knoxx—the most famous member of the Knoxx Family, a traveling Mennonite evangelical family—is scheduled to speak. Penny has heard of Michael—how he lost part of his leg in a terrible accident and uses the experience to inspire others—and knows she must meet him . . . even if it means challenging her parents' strict rules and taking the first step toward her own independence.
Though he speaks about living life to the fullest, Michael knows he needs to take his own advice. Life on the road is grueling and Michael wants to slow down, to rest . . . to perhaps meet someone who sees him as a man, not just a celebrity. So when a twist of fate allows him the chance to stay a little longer in Pinecraft, Michael knows God is showing him a new path, especially when he discovers that Penny has also survived a terrible ordeal.
But as Michael's time in Pinecraft comes to an end, Michael and Penny are left to wonder what kind of future they could possibly have together. Are they brave enough to take the chance given to them? Or will they choose to cling to what is familiar, even if it pushes away their dream of happiness?

Book two, The Proposal at Siesta Key, in the Amish Brides of Pinecraft series by Shelley Shepard Gray is an absolute delight. This novel discusses struggles, pain, and how to overcome these, as well as friendship blossoming in to love. Shelley has once again crafted a story that will inspire readers, wanting to read it once, then turn around and read it again. Pinecraft is a place that readers can enter as they enjoy this next edition of this heart-warming series. I would recommend this novel to fans of Shelley’s other novels, as well as to those that love romance and Amish-fiction.
