Once Upon a Buggy by Shelley Shepard Gray

 

May Schott would do anything to change the tragic moment when she stepped too close to the fire that left her best friend, Carl Hilty, devastatingly burned. After Carl left Apple Creek for extensive surgeries, May patiently prayed for one chance to ask his forgiveness. Now, six years later, Carl Hilty is coming home.

The reunion goes nothing like May anticipated. Overwhelmed with emotion at seeing Carl again, she is speechless, unable to look away. And Carl’s own stone-cold silence leaves her certain that whatever attraction they once shared has been replaced by his hatred of her.

After hiding in the shadows of the big city, Carl has returned to connect with his family and to see if May can overlook his scars and accept his love—but it seems she wants nothing to do with him. He grudgingly agrees to stay with his family for a time before retreating once again. . . . But in Apple Creek, it’s easy to miss what everyone around you sees plain as day. For two people who belong together, it will take a few helping hands to heal the hurts of the past and make a miraculous new beginning.

My Review


 A story that will pull on your heart, young teenage love, fear, and a barn fire. This is the beginning, and the end, but not with teenagers.

This is a story of forgiveness, of others and yourself, and also living your faith, and some really need lessons here.

There are a lot of family dynamics, and one family ends up with not one but two they need to deal with! Rather like God telling them to forgive!

Soon you'll be absorbed in Amish daily life, and here you will need to know about alpaca's and there stubborn personalities, and their cute names! There is also healing, and storms! You will be page turning for answers.

I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Kensington Books, and was not required to give a positive review.
