Leona must decide: Does she follow the path set out before her? Or take a chance with only the promise of what could be to guide her?
A young Amish woman finds herself torn between the man she’s pledged to wed and the man her heart desires in this heartwarming story of chance, duty, and choice in the face of love—the first volume in the beloved New York Times bestselling author’s new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series.
Amish bride-to-be Leona is thrilled to be in Florida, on a mini-vacation in the pretty town of Pinecraft. Her girlfriends think she’s happy because she’s away from the stress of wedding planning. They have no idea that Leona’s real joy is in being away from her fiancé.
Edmund is a good man, and will make a decent husband . . . just not for Leona. The more time she spends with him and his overbearing ways, the less she wants to be his wife. Her cousins are sure Edmund is the right man for her-and their certainty makes Leona begin to doubt herself. But when a chance encounter with a wayward cat brings her face-to-face with a handsome, fun-loving Amish man named Zachary Kauffman, Leona’s faced with two vastly different futures.
I’m a big fan of Amish fiction and Shelley Shepard Gray is one of my favorite writers of this type of genre. She doesn’t disappoint with book one of the Amish Brides of Pinecraft series; giving us one of her best stories so far.
The main characters are easy to fall in love with(which makes me love a book even more), the plot is intriguing and the descriptions of the Pinecraft are wonderfully written.
Shelley has always been one of my favorites because she portrays the Amish way of life so well. She doesn’t try to make them sound oh so sweet, but she lets you see some of the struggles that they deal with in their day to day life.
Overall, The Promise Of Palm Grove is fast-paced Amish romance that I enjoyed reading from start to finish.
