Planted with Hope (The Pinecraft Pie Shop Series) Paperback – March 1, 2016 by Tricia Goyer, Sherry Gore

In the second installment of the Pinecraft Pie Shop series, you'll return to a town and a family you've already grown to love.

When Hope Miller is offered the plot of land behind the Me, Myself, and Pie shop to start a garden, she jumps at the chance. Finally--some space away from her four sisters! But everyone in town seems to have an opinion about what she should grow and how she should grow it. When the widower schoolteacher, Jonas Sutter, asks if his students at the Amish school can help turn the plot into a community garden, Hope only halfheartedly agrees, wondering if she will ever get the peace and quiet she craves. And will she get anything to grow?

The stories of friendship, community, and unexpected love within these pages will plant real seeds of hope within your heart.

My Review
The second book in the Pinecraft Pie Shop series, Planted With Hope focus on Hope Miller’s life and her love of gardening. We are reunited with her sister Lovina and her soon to be husband Noah, and other folks we met in the first book.
We travel the picturesque streets of Pinecraft, Florida, and spend our time with the plain people. As the book opens we meet preconscious Emma eating a double dipper, what a mess and our Hope comes to her aid, and she does it again in a more serious situation.
Emma is the catalyst to bring her dad, Jonas, the substitute teacher until the end of the school year, and Hope together. The town garden that Lovina has a hand in brings Hope out and into her heart desire, gardening.
Hope has a hard time relating to people, and would rather hid in her garden, she longs to go back to her life in Ohio, and takes an action with the hopes of returning. God seems to have other plans here, but will Hope open her life and heart, but there are many other people that are taking here hand and trying to lead her into the world.
Will Hope follow what is being placed in front of her, or will her doubts keep her locked in her own little world? The answers are here, and we might not agree with how things turn out, but you may be surprised.
I received this book through Net Galley and the publisher Harvest House, and was not required to give a positive review.
