Product Description

Until Robert Miller met Lilly Allen, his world had been dark. A widower after only two years of marriage, he'd been living in a haze, feeling that, at twenty-four, his life was already over. But thanks to his friendship with Lilly, he now has new reasons to wake up each day. He knows his connection to her doesn't make sense. She's only nineteen, with a past the whole town talks about. Even more, she's not Amish, like Robert. A marriage between the two of them could never happen.

Lilly's heart is drawn to Robert, not to his faith. No matter how much she admires his quiet strength and dependability, she doesn't think she could ever give up her independence and reliance on the modern world. Is their love doomed before it even begins?

Publisher's Description

Until Robert Miller met Lilly Allen, his world had been dark. A widower after only two years of marriage, he's been living in a haze, filled with grief. He feels his life is already over-even though he's only twenty-five. But his friendship with Lilly changes everything. For the first time since he can remember, he finds new reasons to wake up each day. Soon, he knows he's falling in love with Lilly. However, he also knows a marriage between the two of them can never happen. Lilly Allen is only eighteen. She had become pregnant out of wedlock. And, she's an Englisher. He, of course, is Amish. Lilly also feels a strong attraction to Robert. She admires his quiet strength and dependability. She's also in awe of his devotion to his wife's memory. Lilly knows she could never measure up to his perfect Amish wife. She also comes to realize that no matter how much she might love a person, she can't change who she is. She loves Robert--not the Amish faith. No matter how much she loves him...she doesn't know if she'll ever be able to give up her independence and reliance on the modern world in order to say vows. Coming from different worlds, does their love stand a chance?

    This book handles some of life's difficult challenges in an awesome way with lessons learned. I love the characters. I am so glad there is a new series about the people of Sugarcreek so I can still get a glimpse of the lives of the characters from this book. Can't wait to read the Christmas book that comes after this one. Shelley has done a wonderful job with this one.

    My favorite of the series by far! Oh how precious and delicate the relationship between Lilly and Robert is. You cheer for them out loud and return as quickly as possible to the book to see where they are in their loving, redeeming journey.

    Do not miss this book! My words can't do it justice.

    Review: Autumn's Promise - Seasons of Sugarcreek Book #3 - Shelley Shepard Gray - August 2010

    From the start of the series with Winter's Awakening Lily Allen , the book character not the famous singer as been a part of bringing the Seasons of Sugarcreek novels to life , in the first book Winter's Awakening we saw Lilly's family move from outside of Amish life as what they call Englischer's to the land of Sugarcreek - an Amish community and try to adopt their lifestyles. In the first book we saw Joshua have feelings for Lily and stray away from Gretta whom at the time he was courting and in book #1 we discovered that Lily was hiding a huge secret. At the end of Book #1 though we saw wrongs corrected and Josh ended up marrying Gretta. In Book #2 Spring's renewal we saw the miscarriage of Lily's baby and the pain she went through at the thought of losing it all, we all wondered when was Lily's story and happy ending coming to arrive.

    In Autumn's promise we see the heartbreaking agony that Lily suffers when her parents announce that her mother is pregnant -just as Lily is on her way to getting over her miscarriage. In Spring's renewal we saw the introduction of the character Robert Miller and in Book #3 he springs to action as the lead male as Robert and Lily start getting close , however like usual their are obstacles in their road as he is into the Amish religion where she isn't and she is blinded by her past. However, Lily sets Robert's heart on fire and after losing his wife he thought he could never find love again. Can he prove to Lily that she is worth having and can Lily realise that it is not Robert's Amish lifestyle she is drawn to but himself as a man? Of course , like Lily's life in the rest of the novels we see her go up and down throughout the novel and watch as she decides whether or not Robert is her Prince Amish Charming.

    Is Autumn's Promise a season for Lily's dreams to come true or will this season like the previous too pass over her ?

    Find out in Shelley Shepard Gray's book #3 of the Season of Sugarcreek.

    As with all Shelley Shepard Gray's series, the continuity is superb. Each series starts with a cast of characters and I can't help but wonder where the story will lead. I have to admit, this is the first time I looked at the last pages to be sure that everything was going to work out for Lily. I carry a book with me everywhere. Please keep writing, Shelley.
