Publisher's Description

Tim Graber arrives in Sugarcreek to help his aunt and uncle with spring planting. At first, Tim doesn't fit in with his many cousins and their crowded lifestyle. But when he meets Clara Slabaugh, the local school teacher, he understands why the Lord brought him to Sugarcreek. Clara is shy and quiet. Scarred from a fire when she was small, Clara has resigned herself to living alone and caring for her mother, who tells her that no man will ever see past her scars, and that Clara needs to keep teaching in order to make ends meet. Her father passed away years ago, and her mother depends on her. But the scars mean nothing to Tim. He appreciates her quiet nature and her wonderful, loving way with children. Yet Tim has a sweetheart back home in Indiana. As these two hearts struggle to determine their path, tragedy strikes, and every other worry seems insignificant in comparison. Though they now face a life they never imagined, will Tim and Clara have the faith to step out and risk everything for a chance at true love?

“Clara is a well-crafted and relatable character. You’ll soon be as partial to Clara as the author, especially as she develops and comes out of her shell.”

    I love this series. Clara is such a strong and amazing young woman even though she has been scarred both physically and emotionally.

    She is the central character in the second book in this series.

    It's a story of love, compassion and at times betrayal

    You will fall in love with this wonderful story.

    This is the second book in the "Seasons of Sugarcreek" series. Shelley's characters really come alive. They are so realistic and most are people that I would like to have as my friends. I can certainly picture each individual in my mind with all their strengths and flaws. I like how Shelley focuses on relationships with God but also with family. Those tenets are a basic part being Amish. It's a life and not just a "church on Sunday" religion. The focus of this book is on Clara Slabaugh who is the local Amish school teacher. She is disfigured from a household fire when she was small. Clara believes that when people look at her that all they can see are the scars. She feels the tight knit Amish community pities her. Newcomer Tim Graber moves to town and he sees a wonderful and beautiful girl inside and out. Will Clara accept his love and feel worthy for a life of marriage and a family of her own? It's harder to accept that than it seems because someone close to Clara has their reasons for making sure Clara has no self-esteem. Can she and Tim find happiness or will she be a lonely, sad old maid who lives with her mother?

    Oh how I found myself cheering for Clara in the second book of the Seasons of Sugarcreek Series!

    Again, such wonderful characters you'll truly care about. Author Gray paints precise pictures for her setting in this book and develops the characters in a remarkable way.

    Each book so far has left me eager for the next in the series!

    Review: Spring's Renewal- Book #2 Seasons of Sugarcreek - Shelley Shepard Gray - May 2010

    Remember the review of Winter's Awakening which told the tale of the arrival of Lily Allen and the courting troubles and triumphs between Josh and Gretta. Well get prepared for Book #2 as it's springtime in the year and as the title suggests it's time for a little of Spring renewal to pass the season and put joy in the hearts of others. In Book #2 we see that Josh and Gretta finally worked out their problems and married , Lily whom we discovered was pregnant in Book #1 Winter's awakening has some good news and bad news hit her and what will happen to Lily's baby when things start complicating and whose the new hottie in town that Lily seems to be crushing on ? However, Spring's renewal focuses on Tim - Josh's Cousin who has come to visit the farm and help out from Indiana and Clara - the schoolteacher . Clara has always thought that she could never be loved as due to an accident when she was five or six , it left the side of her face and body scarred, and Tim, thought that Sugarcreek would be boring and that he couldn;t wait to get back home to Indiana. But has God got a plan for both of them as Tim starts showing interest in Clara and starts to feel like Sugarcreek is a part of him. Can Clara allow her heart to be open to Tim or when she finds out that he's supposedly courting somebody back home, will she find her heart shut to him ? Can Tim lure Clara out of her insecure shell and show her just how beautiful she really is and that he can see her truly as she is and past the skin-deep appearance of her scars ?
