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:  Shelley Shepard Gray is one of my favorite authors when it comes to Amish fiction. This was a sweet charming (pun intended) Amish story that stayed true to the book’s title. But was a little less heart wrenching than book #1 in the series.

Both characters are searching for their dreams or actually their chosen vocation. On their path they discover each other and actually hit it off fairly quickly so a romantic end is surely to come.

Young Lily, the niece, is struggling through her grief, which is so very sad, and I can’t help but wonder if there is a storyline for her somewhere down the way.

Both characters are written as likeable people with generous hearts. We also check in on some previous characters which is always nice (I say that a  lot).

If you like sweet Amish fiction you’ll enjoy taking another nice trip to Charm, Ohio in #2 in the Charmed Amish Life series.
