Hopeful

by Shelley Shepard Gray

HopefulABOUT THIS BOOK…..Return to Sugarcreek, Book One In the Amish town of Sugarcreek, love comes in many forms. But will it come at all for Miriam? Miriam Zehr has worked at the Sugarcreek Inn longer than she cares to admit. The restaurant is a favorite of town residents as well as the many tourists who come to taste the famous Amish fare. Though she always tries to have a smile for every customer, deep down Miriam knows something’s missing: a family of her own. Miriam has never felt particularly beautiful, especially because she’s always been a bit heavier than other girls her age. When Junior, the man she’s pined for all her life, suddenly seeks her out, she’s thrilled to be noticed . . . until she realizes he’s only asking her to help get the attention of Mary Kathryn Hershberger, her pretty friend. If Miriam helps Junior court Mary Kathryn, she’ll get to spend a lot of time with him, but she might lose him in the process. Are these few stolen moments worth a lifetime of sacrifice? Is Miriam right to even hope for the life she dreams of? Purchase a copy and learn more at Shelley’s website .

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK

Miriam Zehr is such a sweet young Amish lady, and she will do anything she can for anyone. And that is just what she did when Junior ask for her help in getting to know the new school teacher. This beautiful new school teacher is just the woman Junior is looking for, or so he things. The problem is, Miriam has had her heart set on Junior since they were young, but Junior never gave Mariam a thought, so it just might be time for her to forget about Junior and look elsewhere.

I really liked Miriam from the beginning, but I really got irritated at Junior to put her in such an awkward position. But being the Miriam she was, she started trying to make sure the paths crossed of Junior and Mary Kate. Mary Kate brings into the community issues of her past that pips up the tension a bit. Weaved together so beautifully, Shelly Shepard Gray gives us readers a wonderful heartwarming story full of ups and downs, tensions, and oh so romantic! If you enjoy Amish fiction, you will love this new book by one of my favorite authors!
