Shelley Shepard Gray is heading back to Sugarcreek in JOYFUL! {Book giveaway.}


My Thoughts:
I enjoyed this book, Randall was a fun character to dislike. I connected with him because I I know people like him, that get gruff and mean, when they can't express themselves any other way. This was a great story, and I loved seeing familar characters again. I enjoy Pippa and liked her side story, since she is not Amish, I am not sure we will ever hear her entire story, but I love the glimpses of her in this series. I loved Grandma Anna Mae, she was a character I would have loved to have read about her life as a young woman. Over all this was a good story that I just really liked.  4 stars from this reviewer.

About the book: A young Amish couple gets a second chance at love in New York Times bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray's final book in her Return to Sugarcreek series.
Randall Beiler is doing his best to put his family and the farm's needs first, even forsaking love. But though he tries, Randall knows he needs help caring for his younger siblings and keeping the house together.
When his brother offers pretty Elizabeth Nolt a job taking care of the house and cooking for the family, Randall is furious---and guilty about the way he once broke Elizabeth's heart. But when he learns that Elizabeth and her grandmother are struggling to make ends meet, he knows the offer, no matter how painful, is the right thing for everyone.
Elizabeth wants to refuse---to stay far away from the man who hurt her---but she needs the money. Though she vows to protect her heart, spending time in the Beiler household makes Elizabeth realize that, while she's older and wiser, her love for Randall still burns strong.
Randal, too, seems to want something more. But does he want Elizabeth because he truly loves her---or because he needs a housekeeper? If Randall sincerely wants something more, he must find a way to show Elizabeth---or risk losing his chance at love forever.
