I thought I'd catch you up on what I've been reading lately!
But when she has the chance to travel to Switzerland as the caregiver of a young child, she leaps at the opportunity.
In my last What I'm Reading post I mentioned reading the first book of this series. The second was just as good. I highly recommend it!
The "Sisters of the Heart" Series by Shelley Shephard Gray
Will the past destroy Katie's chances for love? Or will Katie allow herself to accept God's love, forgive her past, and receive everything she's ever wanted?"*
When a fire destroys the Lundys' barn, Winnie is injured trying to get the animals to safety. Confined to a hospital for weeks, out of touch with her loved ones who live too far away to visit by buggy, she must depend on Englisher Samuel Miller to keep her company. Though his family is part of Winnie's tight-knit Amish community, Samuel left years earlier to pursue a university education. Through conversations, and Samuel's dedication to her recovery, a friendship forms. But despite their growing attraction, Winnie knows it can never develop into something more as long as Samuel chooses to remain in the outside world.
When Winnie returns home, she finds her brother, Jonathan, struggling with his own dilemma. Cigarette butts were discovered in the debris of the barn and Jonathan is determined to find out who is responsible for destroying his property and putting his family at risk. But in a community founded on grace and forgiveness, will his unwillingness to move on eat away at the trust that is the foundation of their lives?"*
Book 4. (This is actually kind of a bonus book, but it follows book 3)
"It's never too late to go home
It’s Christmastime at the Brenneman Bed and Breakfast, and everyone is excited about closing down for the holidays. But when two unexpected visitors appear seeking shelter, the family’s commitment to hospitality is tested. First Levi arrives, sullen and angry . . . but insisting on staying for five days. Next Melody shows up. She’s almost nine months pregnant, but won’t say a word about why she traveled all the way from Kentucky by herself. As the two strangers settle in, the Brennemans try to make the best of an uncomfortable situation, except for Katie, who and knows a thing or two about keeping secrets. She is determined to learn the truth about these two strangers . . . all while keeping her own secret safely hidden away.
All is revealed when a snowstorm traps them at the inn."*
I loved this entire series! I love Amish Christian Fiction but I love that these are different than the usual storylines I find in the genre.
I actually have more to add to this list, but I think they will have to be on next time's What I'm Reading post.
Anyone have any suggestions on what I should read next?
