A young Amish woman, yearning for freedom, crosses paths with a handsome Mennonite celebrity in a deeply moving tale of friendship and self-discovery—the second installment in the unforgettable New York Times bestselling author’s new Amish Brides of Pinecraft series.

Penny Troyer rarely disobeys her parents. In the years since her sister’s tragic death, they’ve wanted nothing more than to keep her safe…even if it means never leaving the house.

But tonight, she’s bending the rules because Michael Knoxx, the most famous member of The Knoxx Family Singers, a traveling Mennonite Evangelical family —is scheduled to speak. Penny has heard of Michael—how he lost part of his leg in a terrible accident and uses the experience to inspire others—and knows she must meet him. So, for the first time ever, Penny stands up to her parents and goes out on her own. 

Though he speaks about living life to the fullest, Michael knows he needs to take his own advice. Life on the road is grueling and Michael wants to slow down, to rest…to perhaps meet someone who sees him as a man, not just a celebrity. So when a twist of fate allows him the chance to stay a little longer in Pinecraft, Michael knows God is showing him a new path, especially when he discovers how much he and Penny Troyer have in common.

But new friendships can’t stop time. Soon, Michael's time in Pinecraft will be over and he'll be back on the road. Her time with Michael has brought her happiness, but will she be able to follow her heart? Or will she be faced with the one thing she’s sure she'll never have the courage to do?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sure to satsify the discerning reader There's something so magical about the way Shelley Shepard Gray writes. Her words just seem to flow, creating vivid images in my mind. I get a shiver of bibliodelight when I open one of her books, eager to be transported into another life for a time. So I'm afraid I devoured The Proposal at Siesta Key in one sitting and it was over much too soon! This is the second book in the Amish Brides of Pinecraft series but there's no need to read the first one (though you ought to!) before reading this one. It reads beautifully as a standalone, though there are a few overlapping characters fans of the first book will be happy to meet up with again. And one over-arcing thread that I'm thinking is going to turn romantical, simmering on the back burner. Penny's unusual backstory really intrigued me. It's shaped her right into adulthood and, in a way, this is her coming of age story. She begins to discover her strengths and potential. In contrast, Michael is definitely living out his potential but once he meets Penny he starts rethinking his future. A deliciously simple yet complicated love story that's sure to satisfy. My thanks to Litfuse Publicity Group and Avon Inspire for supplying me with a review copy of this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back At The Orange Blossom Inn Back in Siesta Key Florida and the Orange Blossom Inn, we meet a very sheltered Amish woman, about to spread her wings. She has been very protected by her parents and now at 24 years of age she has decided to venture out into the world, much to Mom and Dad’s chagrin. Also we have an evangelist in the form of Michal Knoxx whom along with his family is touring the country sharing the gifts God has bestowed on Michael. When we meet him he is very ill, and rather grumpy, as you might expect, if you knew. Michael has had a lot of trauma in his life, and is rather tired of sharing his life with the world. Now he is forced to take a rest, and of course he ends up at the Inn, where Penny has taken her first ever job. We watch, as their first meeting sure doesn’t go very well, what with Michael being ill. Can shy Penny spark a friendship with such a celebrity? Will there be a chance of romance between Beverly and Eric, whom we met in the first book in this series. I found myself rooting for there to be a union between them. A really good and fast read and I am hoping for more of these visits at the Inn. I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours and was not required to give a positive review.
