What a fun summer read~ I am enjoying this book. It grabbed my attention from the very first line.
Penny and her family live in a adorable little town called Pinecraft, Florida. I liked that the author gave a map in the front cover. It looks like a perfect place to be. Yet~ Penny has been a sheltered young woman for way to long and is busting out at the seams. A tragedy in the family taking the life of her sister in a horrific way leaves her parents smothering her to death. She just has to break free and live. This book is all about her having the courage to break free from the control and fear that her loving but over protecting parents have placed her under. Penny decides it is time for all of them to move on in healing.
She goes to work for a Bed and Breakfast and finds herself caring for a popular Mennonite singer/evangelist. He is a little arrogant and high thinking of himself. She is trying to not be smitten in the least. Only time together turns the tide and they become more than friends. The only problem is that he will be leaving soon. Will she have even more courage to follow her heart?
I really enjoyed seeing how this book deals with fear in a healthy and healing way. I was given this book in exchange for my honest review. Although this is the second book in the Amish Brides of Pinecraft~ it was not necessary for me to read the first book. Great Book!
