The Charmed Amish Life #2
Shelley Shepard Gray
Releasing May 24th, 2016
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?

Once again Shelley Shepard Gray has swept me off my feet while reading A Daughter's Dream. Rebecca has always dreamed to be a teacher and she's getting a taste as she volunteers at the local school house. She meets the guardian/uncle of one of the students and their connection is immediate and undeniable. Jacob is sweet and his love for his niece and parents kept me enthralled in his story.
Peter and Lily's sub-story is sweet and heartwarming.
The ending was a bit abrupt, though the story was all wrapped up. I will be anxiously awaiting the next book in the Charm Series.
