A Daughter’s Dream | Shelley Shepard Gray


Today I am reviewing A Daughter’s Dream, the second book in the Charmed Amish Life series by Shelley Shepard Gray.

Here is a brief synopsis:

In Shelley Shepard Gray’s second book in her Charmed Amish Life series, 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?



Shelley Shepard Gray has been a favorite author of mine since I began reading her Amish fiction novels! And I’ve just added this story to my collection.

This book is just as great as I hoped it would be! Shelley writes a wonderful story about Rebecca, who works in the family business, but has always wanted to be a teacher. When she finally gets the opportunity to teach, she discovers —

Well, I can’t really tell you what (or who) she discovers. You’ll just have to read it for yourself. I will share that there’s lots more to the story than just teaching. Matter of fact, there’s lots more to the story than just Rebecca! It’s the perfect sequel to A Son’s Vow.

Don’t miss this exciting sequel in the Charmed Amish Life series! You’ll be glad you did.

You’re gonna love it!!


Happy Reading!

    Thank you for the review. I’ve not read this book of Shelley’s and will add it to my list to read. Sounds like another great book of hers. Always enjoying books with children and those who are willing to help them.
