About the book... (provided by Litfuse)
And I thought...They keep getting better! A Sister's Wish is book 3 in the Charmed Series.
And well I think it was my favorite!
I loved the being reintroduced to some of the characters from the first two books. But I really 'fell in love' with Simon and his story and plight. His struggling childhood that lead to bad mistakes as a younger adult brought him to where he is now. A strong man that has realized his faith is worthy and he is worthy.
I loved the introduction to his sister Tess and their plans to help other people. Women and children and families that have struggled with family abuse.
Abuse is not a topic that you would expect in this type of book/story. Shelley does a fabulous job of weaving together a story that keeps you spellbound.
I really enjoyed A Sister's Wish and look forward with some sadness to reading the last book in the series An Amish Family Christmas
Do they really have to end?
Please Shelley say it 'Ain't So'!
Here's a little peek into An Amish Family Christmas . . .
In Shelley Shepard Gray’s fourth book in her Charmed Amish Life series, an unlikely Amish romance reveals that Christmas is a time for family, miracles—and love.
Ever since his father died in a tragic fire, Levi Kinsinger has felt adrift. Newly returned to Charm, Ohio, Levi is trying to fit into his old life, only to discover he seems to have outgrown it.
But when Julia, his young widowed neighbor, asks for his help with a Christmas project, Levi finds a sense of purpose for the first time in months. She and her daughter are new to Charm and could use a friend, a job Levi takes personally. Soon enough, friendship grows into attraction, but Levi can’t help having doubts. There’s something about Julia that doesn’t ring quite true…
Like Levi, Julia Kemps has survived her fair share of hardships—but only by hiding the truth of her past. Being an unmarried mother in an Amish community was unthinkable. Feeling hopeless, Julia did the only thing she could do: she moved to a new town and pretended to be a widow. But meeting Levi, she’s hopeful for the first time. Little by little, she begins to imagine telling him her darkest secret, and eventually…perhaps even sharing her life with him.
Christmas is a time for family, and as the holiday draws closer, Julia and Levi will have to face their pasts together…in order to find the healing, support and love they so desperately desire.
