“Spring’s Renewal” is the second book in Shelley Shepard Gray’s Seasons of Sugarcreek series.

Once again Shelley Shepard Gray has surprised me and I am so glad she did. I was so afraid this book would end in an unsatisfactory way but I was pleasantly surprised. Shelley has an astonishing talent.

From the minute I picked the book up, I could not bear to put it down. Of course being a mother of two rambunctious kiddos, I had to put it down a few times but it amazed even me how quickly I would pick it right back up.

I felt positively sneaky…
but I couldn’t help myself.

The story drew me in immediately and I found myself feeling Clara’s pain. I also found myself feeling for Tim. He was so wrapped up in confusion about what to do with his feelings.

Both of them had an uncanny knack for stumbling right before they got to the point of what should be said and I found that to be absolutely perfect. Young people have a habit of circling around their own thoughts and getting all mixed up when the rest of their life is on the line.

Shelley captured that beautifully. God has truly blessed her with a wondrous talent and I find myself on pins and needles – just to get to the next book in this series… not to mention the next series.

DO NOT miss this book! ( )

I just could not put this book down. I finished it in two days. Tim Grabor arrives in Sugarcreek to help his aunt and uncle with there farm. One day he comes across Clara(the amish school teacher) sitting by the creek. He is charmed by her and does not care about the physical scars Clara has. They goes through a few hurdles until they finally end up together. ( )

This is a series set in Ohio and centered on Amish life. This first novel concerns the schoolteacher, Clara Slabaugh, a young woman physically scarred since childhood. The lesson is that beauty is not always found on the outside, but can be hidden under layers. Clara has a demanding mother, but still she remains kind and optimistic. Lilly has just suffered a miscarriage from an unwanted pregnancy and wants to hide from the world. Each person carries unwanted burdens, but with God's assistance these labors diminish. This novel covered many of my own problems and eased my mind on many issues. The writing is simple and the message is clear. ( )

I know I have said this before but I really am a fan of Amish fiction by Shelley Shepard Gray. Unlike other Amish books, her stories do not involve conflict between the Amish world and the outside world. There are no main stories about Amish teens struggling between their world and the new things they discover during their Rumspringa or drama about the church and ways of belief. Instead her books just embrace the culture and just let the characters do their own thing and just be Amish. They are always good reads and just very comforting.

In this story, we meet up with schoolteacher Clara who has the unfortunate fate of being scarred from an accident when she was young. She lives with her mother who seems to overly depend on Clara almost to the point of suffocation. There seems to be no hope for a better life and as the years go by and she gets older, Clara resigns herself to this life. Then Tim, a young man trying to find himself, arrives in their town and everything begins to change. While I found myself liking Clara immediately from the beginning, it really took me a while to bond with Tim. He just got on my nerves at first, I think it might be due to maybe the community he was from being a bit stricter. As it stood, I felt that Clara had a lot more daring in her and was more outspoken. Which is more than I could say about Tim's annoying girlfriend Ruby. Woo, what a...well let's just say there are choice words I could have said about her that aren't very nice.

The story focuses on Clara and Tim's relationship as well as their own personal lives. There's a bit of a drama scene at the end but it ties things together nicely. Also part of the story and returning from the first book in the series is pregnant teen Lilly. I was a tad disappointed at the way her story started off in this book. I just felt that after all the buildup from the first book, it felt like this book was such a downer. Still though, I do like Lilly and I am looking forward to reading more about her in the series. Reading about the Amish culture was lots of fun as well. There's lots of talk about food which I like very much and I would love to go visit the restaurant where Lilly works. I really enjoy Gray's books and I am eager for the final book in the series. If you like Amish fiction and are in the mood for a sweet read, this is a great series. ( )
