A Daughter's Dream (The Charmed Amish Life, Book 2) - Shelley Shepard Gray - GIVEAWAY!

5 Stars!

In Shelley Shepard Gray's second book in her Charmed Amish Life series, 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?

Oh I am just loving this series! OK right away when you open the book there is this great map! I love all these little details in books. I love books with maps and lists, family trees - anything that gives it that little extra something.

Shelley Shepard Gray sure know how to write romance. I loved the first book in the series - A Son's Vow and usually the second book is not as good, but not the case here. I loved this one just as much, if not more. This one is a very sweet slow developing romance. There are quite a few heartfelt moments and a few chillbump spots.

I liked Lilly's character. I love that she was very much a teenager. The author did a great job with this, but then - Shelley always does a fantastic job with the character development! I actually loved all the characters in this one, But especially Lilly, Jacob and Rebecca.

I read this book in just a couple of days as I did the first one. I have very quickly become a fan of Shelly's books - I can't wait for the next one (A Sister's Wish)! I have also read a couple of others from Shelley and loved them all, but it really makes me want to go back and read every single one!

Thank you Litfuse for sending me this book for my honest review!
