REVIEW: A Son's Vow by Shelley Shepard Gray

About the Book

Shelley Shepard Gray’s first book in her Charmed Amish Life series is set in the quaint Amish village of Charm, Ohio, and tells the stories of the Kinsinger siblings who are each struggling to find both forgiveness and love in the face of tragedy.

Three months ago, everything changed for Darla Kurtz and her family. Darla’s father was responsible for a terrible fire at Charm’s lumber mill which killed five Amish men. And though he, too, lost his life, the town of Charm hasn’t looked at her family the same since. Even Lukas Kinsinger—with whom Darla used to have a close friendship.

Now her brother’s anger at the town is spilling over onto Darla, and she has the bruises to prove it. The accident already cost five lives, but if something doesn’t change soon, Darla fears it will cost her—and her family—even more.

Lukas Kinsinger wants to mourn the loss of his father, but he can hardly find the time to breathe. Suddenly the head of his father’s lumber mill and responsible for taking care of his three siblings, he’s feeling the pressure. He has also never felt more alone—especially with the new tension between he and Darla. But when he learns of her troubles at home, Lukas knows he can’t simply stand by and watch. Someone has to help her before another tragedy occurs.

As Lukas and Darla attempt to repair their families, they discover something deeper than friendship growing between them. But will Lukas and Darla’s love be accepted after so much loss? Or will the pain of the past overcome any chance of future happiness?

My Review

A Son's Vow is the first in a new Amish series by Shelley Shepard Gray. I was hesitant to sogn up for the blog tour for A Son's Vow because I don't really read Amish fiction anymore, except for Beverley Lewis, it has become the same ole', same ole'. But I have enjoyed other books by Shelley so I thought to give it a shot and I am so glad I did. I actually really loved and enjoyed A Son's Vow. And I love the cover of the book too.

Set in an Amish village in Ohio, it tells the story of Darla Kurtz and Lukas Kinsinger. Darla's father was responsible for a fire that killed five Amish men, including her own father. And since the town doesn't look at Darla the same, even Lukas who Darla has been close friends with for years. Lukas's father waas one of the men killed in the fire and he has since maintained distance from Darla. Unfortunately Darla's brother has become angry and he is taking his anger out on Darla leaving bruises. Lukas soon finds out what Darla's brother is doing to her and he can't just sit by and do nothing.

A Son's Vow was a huge surprise and I can not wait for book #2 to release on May 24, 2016.

Note:::I recieved this book for free from the publisher for an honest review.
