Bestselling author, Shelley Shepard Gray is back with her latest series, Return to Sugarcreek and Hopeful, is Book 1 of this Amish trilogy. Single lady Miriam Zehr wants more out of life than her job at the Sugarcreek Inn. She wants what her family wants for her, to get married and start a family, but she only has eyes from one man, Junior, and he doesn't even know she exists. You see, Miriam has always been a bit self conscious, and doesn't think herself as beautiful. Not like the other girls her age. So when Junior approaches her one day, Miriam's heart starts beating out of her chest only to find out that he's interested in her best friend, Mary Kate, a pretty little school teacher who has absolutely NO interest in Junior or anyone else. Gray has created a charming novel with these three characters who have universal issues, secrets, and dreams that seem just out of their reach.
