I enjoy ready stories about the Amish. We travel to Ohio and Pennsylvania each year and always visit the farmlands and stores. If you have never had this experience in Holmes County, Ohio or Lancaster, Pennsylvania, you should visit both places. Most of the Amish stories are based on these two places so if you enjoy reading the stories, then you would certainly enjoy visiting these two places!
A perfect holiday Novel that will leave you warm and wanting more, I thoroughly enjoyed it so much, it was read within a week!! ;)
It begins with the lovely Judith Graber, she's unselfish to the core, obedient, responsible, and wouldn't hesitate to put her families needs above her own. Then bad boy Ben Knox steps back into her life and turns it upside down- BRING ON THE FIREWORKS ;) Playful antics ensure as we learn about Judith and Ben's history, and Ben's troubled past returns to haunt this new happiness and feelings he's fought for so long to hide.
You will fall in love with the entire Graber family! I enjoyed the fact that the Author weaved three different romantic tales into one! You surely will shed some tears between the sweet relationship between Judith's brother, Caleb and Rebecca, Lilly and Robert as they learn to love, forgive, redeem, and find themselves through Christ!
This is my first time reading an Amish story and my first from Author, Shelley Shephard Gray, and what a pure delight it was! I'm now officially hooked, I hope she will continue on with the Graber's in a sequal or some kind!! ;) I know every girl secretly wishes she has a Ben Knock of her own hehe ;) The only thing I wish was included in the book, (and it's very small) is that there was a glossary of the Amish terms to translate. I'd be so engrossed in a chapter and then come across a word and be stumped sometimes LOL...but I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND this novel to anyone, no hesitation ;)
