Sally DFayette, MOAge: Over 65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5A unique and enjoyable read!July 29, 2019Sally DFayette, MOAge: Over 65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Loyal One is an enjoyable read and quite unique. This Amish novel reveals many secrets held by some and how they affect others, the many qualities of friendship that involve trust, and how lives can change either suddenly or over a long period of time.
Katie Steury is given the home where she was raised which sounds like a wonderful gift. However in this case it is a laborious job that involves a great deal of cleaning in addition to clearing out the entire house. Katie's mother turned into a hoarder that stemmed from suffering a personal loss that changed her personality. Now it is up to Katie to transform the house and remodel it into a Bread & Breakfast Inn. It was overwhelming to imagine!
Katie hired her longtime friend, Harley who does remodeling but felt hesitant since she was embarrassed at the dirt and debris and rows of hoarding throughout the house. Harley brought in his younger brother, Kyle to help with the project and his attraction to an English girl is a nice story.
A secret about Katie's sister June who mysteriously ran away many years ago is revealed. Katie felt hurt and rejected over this loss.
Katie & Harley grew up together and were both part of a long time friendship group called "The Eight". I was impressed at the loyal friends that helped on Katie's project, each in their own areas of expertise.
This book is very good as all of Shelley Shepard Gray's writings are.
I recommend it!
I won an Advance Reader's Edition of The Loyal One by Shelley Shepard Gray from the publisher.
LucyWVAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great inspiring ReadJuly 29, 2019LucyWVAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I won a copy of this book from Goodreads and was so glad I did. This is book 2 in The Walnut Creek Series and focuses on Katie and Harley two of the Eight friends since childhood. I enjoy that they have various backgrounds Amish, English, and Mennonite and yet found a common ground to bond on. Andy's suicide in book 1 has rocked them and they are each finding ways to deal with what is wrong in their own lives. Katie is hiding a secret about her family until she confides in Harley when he agrees to help her remodel her house. Learning to trust him is a difficult journey. This book deals with family dynamics and placing our trust in The Loyal One who never leaves us and sees us as His child and worthy of love and forgiveness. I loved the lesser characters of Kyle and Gabby and hope they have a story of their own in the future. I look forward to reading more in this series.
