In the Amish town of Sugarcreek, love comes in many forms. But will it come at all for Miriam?
Miriam Zehr has worked at the Sugarcreek Inn longer than she cares to admit. The restaurant is a favorite of town residents as well as the many tourists who come to taste the famous Amish fare. Though she always tries to have a smile for every customer, deep down Miriam knows something's missing: a family of her own.
Miriam has never felt particularly beautiful, especially because she's always been a bit heavier than other girls her age. When Junior, the man she's pined for all her life, suddenly seeks her out, she's thrilled to be noticed . . . until she realizes he's only asking her to help get the attention of Mary Kathryn Hershberger, her pretty friend.
If Miriam helps Junior court Mary Kathryn, she'll get to spend a lot of time with him, but she might lose him in the process. Are these few stolen moments worth a lifetime of sacrifice? Is Miriam right to even hope for the life she dreams of?

I really enjoy Shelley Shepard Gray's books and this one is also very enjoyable. I love getting in on a new series of Amish novels. I will definitely look forward to the next ones coming out. I love that in this story the main character is not perfect. She doesn't have the most amazing body and she lacks self esteem. It is easy to relate to her and you want the best for her throughout the novel. You also want to help her along and tell her how great she is. This is a great start to a series that I'm sure will also be great.
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
