About The Book: A young Amish woman, yearning for freedom, crosses paths with a handsome Mennonite celebrity in a deeply moving tale of friendship and self-discovery—the second installment in the unforgettable New York Times bestselling author’s new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series. Penny Troyer rarely disobeys her parents. In the years since her sister’s tragic death, they’ve wanted nothing more than to keep her safe…even if it means never leaving the house. But tonight, she’s bending the rules because Michael Knoxx, the most famous member of The Knoxx Family Singers, a traveling Mennonite Evangelical family —is scheduled to speak. Penny has heard of Michael—how he lost part of his leg in a terrible accident and uses the experience to inspire others—and knows she must meet him. So, for the first time ever, Penny stands up to her parents and goes out on her own. Though he speaks about living life to the fullest, Michael knows he needs to take his own advice. Life on the road is grueling and Michael wants to slow down, to rest…to perhaps meet someone who sees him as a man, not just a celebrity. So when a twist of fate allows him the chance to stay a little longer in Pinecraft, Michael knows God is showing him a new path, especially when he discovers how much he and Penny Troyer have in common. But new friendships can’t stop time. Soon, Michael’s time in Pinecraft will be over and he’ll be back on the road. Her time with Michael has brought her happiness, but will she be able to follow her heart? Or will she be faced with the one thing she’s sure she’ll never have the courage to do?

My Thoughts On The Book: Loved! Loved! Loved this book, but then I have yet to find a Shelly Gray book I did not love. She has such a way with her characters and her story lines that make you feel as if you have fallen smack dab in the middle of the story. This story feels like Florida and makes you want to go there immediately. I truly believe that this was my absolute favorite to date. Although this is the second book in the series Amish Brides of Pinecraft you don't miss out on anything. Penny and Michael are the best characters ever and I was sad when the book ended. From the moment I began reading I never put this book down. This is definitely a 5 star book and if you are a fan of Amish life/romance books this is a must read.
