About the Book
Upon her return from her best friend Charlie’s wedding, Victoria found that the beautiful city of Chicago had never seemed emptier and neither had her soul. She realized she was surrounded by all the people in the world and she still felt lonely. Deciding to take her friend Charlie’s advice and make a change in her life, she packed her bags and moved to the west coast of Florida. Little did she know that the young Amish girl that she met on the sandy beaches of the Gulf of Mexico would begin a spiral of emotional changes for both of them.

About the Author
Author Pamela Jo, best known as “Whoopie Pie Pam”, is the author of several wonderful story/cookbooks, and the best-selling co-author of the #1 Best Selling series, The Divine Secrets of the Whoopie Pie Sisters. She is also the founder and creator of the Whoopie Pie Book Club, a well know social media site.
While battling Papillary Thyroid Carcinoma, Pam created the Whoopie Pie Book Club. For years, she called a group of ladies in her family by that same name. Every year, they travelled to Amish Country for a retreat of reading Amish fiction, seeing the Amish sights and eating plenty of Whoopie Pies.
Inspired by the Amish for their simplicity in facing life, love of God, and honor for family, Pamela found a connection with the Amish. As a result of her many years of traveling and conducting business with the Amish, she has established close friendships with many Amish families, friendships that she cherishes. She refers to them as her extended family.
Although it took me a little bit to get into this book, Pamela Jo’s story in the first book in her The Sands of Time Series, New Beginnings, is a realistic read, with likeable characters that readers will enjoy. This novella is a fairly short quick read. The story is about Victoria, a woman that is surrounded by many people, but is still lonely and how she discovers herself after befriending an Amish girl dealing with cancer. I would recommend this book to readers that enjoy Amish, Christian fiction.
