Thankful, Book Two in the Return to Sugarcreek series

New York Times bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray captures the beauty, devotion, and warmth of Amish life in this engaging tale of family, commitment, trust, and love set in the beloved community of Sugarcreek.

Christina Kempf has always known that God chose Aden Reese to be her husband. As children, he was there to save her when she fell through the ice, and he’s been by her side ever since. After his parents died in a car accident ten years ago, the Kempfs raised Aden as one of their own, and everyone sees Aden and Christina as brother and sister. But Christina has never given up hope that Aden will one day ask her to be his wife.

Aden always planned to court Christina. But losing his mother and father changed everything—except his love for her. Her parents generously welcomed him into their home and treated him like a son. He can’t betray their kindness by admitting his feelings for the girl who is like a sister . . . yet so much more.

Pressured by her parents to court, Christina begins to accept the attentions of Sugarcreek’s young men, and now, Aden must make a choice. Will he stand by and watch the love of his life slip away? Or will he risk losing the love and trust of the family he holds dear to tell Christina how he truly feels?

My Thoughts:

This is book two in the, “Return to Sugarcreek” series. Don’t fret if you haven’t read the first book in the series as you will be able to follow along. I assure you that you will want to go back and read book one.

This was another heartwarming story that I had such a hard time putting this story down.

I really loved this story and the characters. They are so uncertain about the future and their feeling for one another. Having been best friends since childhood Christina and Aden are all mixed up. Since Aden’s parent’s tragic death and Christina’s mother took Aden in to raise him as a son. 

I love it when I get a glimpse into the characters from previous books in a series. It makes the book feel like your visiting an old friend.

Truly you will find something to be thankful for within the pages of this book. What a reminder that we need to remember and yet we often forget.

All the characters in this story were interesting and I look forward to reading the other books in this series.

Litfuse Publicity Group has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book. In no way was I asked to give a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
