A Sister’s Wish


Title:  A Sister’s Wish
Author:  Shelley Shepherd Gray
Pages:  272
Year:  2016
Publisher:  Avon Inspire
Series: A Charmed Amish Life #3
My rating is 5 stars.
Amelia has been coddled in the Kinsinger family by all her siblings since she was born.  Considered beautiful with a sweet, compassionate, caring heart, the siblings concluded that she therefore must also be someone to protect.  When Lukas’ best friend, Simon, decides he is going to court Amelia, the family members are less than enthusiastic; in fact, they forbid it!  Simon has less than a stellar past and they don’t want him to break Amelia’s heart.
When Simon visits the farm one day, he finds Amelia hurt and has to call for an ambulance.  From there on out, the family tension rises and Amelia has to decide what or rather who is going to direct her life.  Simon too hopes to have a reunion with siblings he hasn’t seen who left the family farm due to their father’s abuse.  Simon eventually left the farm as well, but after some intervention he not only returned to Charm but also faces the naysayers.  Does Simon have what it takes to pursue Amelia in spite of the siblings concern?  Are the siblings going to see a different side of Amelia’s personality or will she stay quiet and let them tell her what to do or not do?
The previous two books in the series introducing the town, lumber mill and families are A Son’s Vow and A Sister’s Dream continue the story in A Sister’s Wish.  All three books are well worth the time to sit and enjoy, getting lost in a family that is very close and seeing how their faith and interactions play out with each day’s experiences.  I am so enjoying the whole series!  Now to the last book, An Amish Family Christmas!
