Hopeful by Shelley Shepard Gray

Shelley Shepard Gray Hopeful
Hopeful by Shelley Shepard Gray was a  great book to read.  I loved this book but I figured I would because I have loved the other books I have read by this author. In this book you follow along with Miriam as she tries to help the person that she has had a crush on her whole life win over one of her friends. I felt bad for her throughout the whole book but I also knew how she felt because I have felt like her. I didn’t really like Mary Kate in the beginning but by the end of the book I understood why she acted the way that she did. I have to say that I loved the ending of the book and I can’t wait to read more books with these characters. If you love books about the Amish than I know you will love this one as much as I did.


About The Book

Return to Sugarcreek, Book One

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?
