A Daughter's Dream Review and 5 book giveaway!

A Daughter's Dream by Shelley Shepard Gray

Book Description:
A Daughter's Dream (Avon Inspire, May 2016)

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?

My Opinion:
Sweet Read.  I think I enjoyed this one more than the first one!  Nothing against Lukas and Darla (I like them as characters to), but ever since being introduced to Rebecca and Amelia I wanted to read their stories!  First is Rebecca's turn and it leaves me more than ready for the next one (Amelia's story)! :)  This is a nice series that is an easy and entertaining read!  I LOVE the animal additions that Shelley always puts in!  Romances galore I really enjoy the dynamic of these siblings and the addition of those that love and marry them just brings even more to the table.  The secondary plots are always interesting and entertaining as well.  I do wish that there were a few more characters from the last book brought back, but I'm holding out hope that Shelley will catch us up with them later on.....  Overall this is a nice, sweet read filled with hope leading to happiness!  

This one like many Amish stories is difficult for me to come up with songs.....have you read the book yet?  What songs do you think fit?

Songs etc. May be changed and/or added in the future. ~ASC
