KristieOhioAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful addition to the series!February 13, 2014KristieOhioAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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?
