Book 11/75 Finished today!

It's amazing really, the more I read, the faster I read. I am almost all the way through my stack of library books. They aren't due until next week. I am thinking I won't have time to go to the library again until Friday after I get out of work.

I don't even have a list of books that I want to read. At this point, I kind of go into the library blindly and pick up whatever looks good and hope that there is a complete series there.

Anyway, on to the book.

Autumn's Promise by Shelley Shepard Gray

Summary from

Some promises are meant to be broken. . . .

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?

It was a good finish to the Seasons of Sugarcreek series. I wish there were more books, but I will settle for this.

  1. Have you read the series by Karen Kingsbury, I think it's called the Baxter Family? Really good, I think you would enjoy it. One of the characters works in an home for elderly people with alzheimers.
