A Daughter's Dream

A Daughter’s Dream (Avon Inspire, May 2016)
A young teacher and farmer discover they have much in common, especially when it comes to healing old wounds from the past . . . and finding love in one another.
Rebecca Kinsinger has always dreamed of being a teacher. But when she’s given the opportunity she’s been waiting for at Charm Amish School, she’s dismayed to discover that teaching is hard work—work she’s afraid she’s not very good at.
That is, until Lilly Yoder joins the class. A thirteen-year old who’s just lost her parents, Lilly is in need of someone like Rebecca. For the first time since starting her new job, Rebecca feels a sense of purpose. But when she meets Lilly’s uncle, Jacob, his good looks and sweet, easy-going temperament are hard to ignore. How can she even entertain romantic thoughts of Jacob when his niece is her student?
Suddenly becoming Lily’s sole caregiver, Jacob Yoder never thought he’d be a single parent—or a farmer. Having been living in Florida as a carpenter, Jacob feels more at home wielding a hammer than a backhoe. The only bright spot in his life is Rebecca Kinsinger. As Lily and Rebecca develop a bond, Jacob’s fondness for the pretty teacher grows, too.
But when a fateful accident brings them together, Rebecca and Jacob must choose between duty and desire. Will they follow the path before them? Or set out to find true happiness . . . and true love?

My Review

This is the second book in The Charmed Amish Life series, and we are back Charm Ohio, and back with some old friends that we made in the first book.
Darla and Lukas are now married, and living with Lukas’s family, all except Levi, and no one seems to knows where he is.
Lukas gives his sister Rebecca a chance to follow her dream of becoming a teacher, and as she is trying to find her footing, we follow her around. While filling in at the school she meets a newly orphaned girl Lilly, and her Uncle Jacob, who has taken over the job of raising her. While Rebecca has lost both of her parents, she tries to help Lilly, but we find her failing.
Will Rebecca be able to fulfill her dreams of teaching, and will she end up making a difference in Lilly’s life? Will the sparks that I noticed between Rebecca and Jacob amount to anything, or will one of the other men at the factory who have an eye on Rebecca win her heart?
I loved being back with these friendly and kind Amish families, and they are really on the road to recovery after the devastating fire.
I received this book though Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
