A Daughter’s Dream is book two in the Charmed Amish Life series. It can be read as a stand alone, yet it was so nice to return to some of the characters from book one and see what was happening in their lives.
I really enjoyed reading about Rebecca and Jacob. They both had some soul searching to do in order to find out what God had truly prepared each of them to be satisfied working at. Their budding relationship was such a joy to read about!
I also enjoyed the side stories belonging to Lilly and Peter, with the beginnings of a young romance, and the balancing act that Rachel and Marcus were trying to walk in their young marriage.
I am really looking forward to the next book in the series and seeing what becomes of Amelia and Simon’s attraction. I believe they may have quite a bit to overcome!
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
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?
