Publisher's Description

As the coldest winter on record blows into Sugarcreek, will three hearts have the courage to discover the life that God wants for them?

In the small Amish town of Sugarcreek, Ohio, Joshua knows what's expected of him: to work at the family store and to finally marry Gretta, whom he's courted for years. But when a new English family moves in next door—and their teenage daughter catches his eye—Joshua wonders if his future plans are too firmly set in stone.

Gretta is shocked by the sudden change in Joshua. Their arguments followed by tense silences feel too much like the frosty atmosphere at home between her parents. When Roland begins to take an interest in her, she considers what her life might be like with Joshua out of the picture. With Roland, Gretta would have steady, kind companionship...although she knows she could never love him.

When Lilly moved to Sugarcreek, she never imagined she'd be enamored with the Amish way of life—and especially with her handsome new neighbor, Joshua. But she guards a secret that will surely drive him away, one that compelled her family to leave their old home and move to Sugarcreek in the first place: Lilly is pregnant.

    Another great book by Shelley Shepard Gray! I loved learning about Joshua and Gretta's story. It was wonderful to see the conflicts resolved and that even in the midst of the trials they trusted in the Lord and did not lose their faith. The next book in the series is ordered and I just have a day to wait to begin reading the second book.

    As a harsh winter descends upon Sugarcreek, Ohio, we are introduced to Gretta & Joshua, a young courting couple with plans to marry. When a new English family moves next door to Joshua's family, he is captivated by their teenage daughter, Lilly, and begins to have doubts about his future with Gretta. While he knows he cannot court Lilly, he steps back from Gretta and she agrees that they need to think about and work on their relationship. Gretta begins to court Roland, who is steady & kind, but she realizes that her heart still lies with Joshua.

    As Lilly's family begins to befriend Joshua's family, Lilly finally tells them that she is pregnant and her family moved to Sugarcreek so she could have the baby and give it up for adoption. Eventually, Lilly decides that she wants to keep the baby and begins working as a waitress in the same restaurant where Gretta works. As Lilly and Gretta become friends, a fierce snowstorm traps Gretta & Joshua in his family's store and they begin to see how much they mean to each other and no one else. Gretta and Joshua marry and Lilly's family attends the wedding. Will Lilly change her mind and keep the baby or give him/her up for adoption as her parents want? An intriguing tale of love, friendship, faith & trust. Can't wait to read the next book in the series.

    Review : Winter's Awakening - Shelley Shepard Gray- Book #1 Seasons of Sugarcreek Series - Feb 2010

    After reading Shelley Shepard Gray's series "Sisters of the Heart" I was excited to read Winter'a Awakening, the first in a new series by her "the Seasons of Sugarcreek". Now Im not sure if It was because the theme of Amish Village wasn't what I was needing right now but I found Winter's Awakening not to be as exciting and thrilling as her Sisters of the Heart series. Though in saying all that, I still enjoyed Winter's Awakening and can't wait to get my hands on Book #2 Spring's Renewal. Winter's Awakening takes us to the heart of a small Amish town called Sugarcreek which sounds such a sweet (not to be ironic) place to live. In the town of Sugarcreek we meet main characters Gretta and Joshua whom know what they are meant to do - marry as they have courted for years, but when Joshua starts to get cold feet and his eyes start wandering to the new girl in their village Lily , he starts to question whether his future with Gretta is meant to be and when another amish villager Roland starts to show the interest in Gretta that Joshua has hidden away, Gretta starts to consider a What If ? relationship without Joshua. Soon we see as fast as they got together both Gretta and Joshua drift apart , but when they look at the big picture are these two meant to be together and only will they with God's grace and faith will they overcome the obstacles needed.

    The other aspect that I love about Christian Fiction is that at the back of the books they have a discussion guide for Readers , so that once you have finished the story -you can sit back and reflect.

    I enjoyed this book. It shows that all people in all cultures have martial problems and have indecision with major decisions in their lives. It was a different outlook on the Amish and their ways. I liked that she wrote it entertwined with the English neighbors. It is interesting wondering how the children react to living by people with different views on the world and religion. Good Book even with some of the mistakes with the grammer. Look over it and read this series. It was worth the time.
