"A Christmas Bride in Pinecraft" by Shelly Shephard Gray
"A Christmas Bride in Pinecraft was a beautifully well written enchanting Amish/Mennonite romance. I found this novel somewhat interesting because as I was reading I found out that this was three stories in one that seemed to tie altogether. I loved how this author presents us with Beverly who manages the Orange Blossom Inn in Pinecraft, Florida and their has been a robbery where now she must call Eric the owner and tell him of this situation. It seems like since Eric had met Beverly some time ago he had feelings for her, so he leaves Pennsylvania and moves to Pinecraft Will this bring him closer to Beverly? What secrets did Eric have than may destroy any feelings Beverly may have for him? Will these two people be able to find common ground and love? But where there is 'forgiveness, mercy, happiness and good will to all men' will there be any good from all of the unexpected obstacles that are put in front of them? Well, this is a Christmas novel so what will happen after the robbery at the inn? Be ready for a read that will give you humor, tears and even finding yourself cheering your favorite character on as you will see 'such fear, faith, love. devotion, redemption and second chances' that is displayed in this well told story. The main questions.... Will Beverly be able to face her fears and move on after the robbery? Beverly has gone to a lots and when it looks like she may even love again will her faith be put to the test? How will this Amish community react to a marriage between Beverly and Eric? Now, to get all of those questions answered and much more you will just have to pick up this fantastic Christmas novel to see just how much it will capture and warm your heart.
What I extremely liked about this novel was how this author was able to bring out the realization of how there were young people going hungry in the town of Pinecraft and that solution to the person who had robbed and vandalized Beverly property was also wonderfully presented.
I received a copy through NOR in exchange for an honest review.
