Book Review: Ray of Light

Ray of LightBestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray brings inspirational romance to life in this sweet tale of love in the Amish community, Ray of Light, the second installment of her Days of Redemption series.

Roman Keim just wants a break from the family drama at his snowy Ohio home when he heads to an Amish snowbird community in Florida. There he meets Amanda Yoder and her daughter Regina who soon are warming his heart. But will Roman return to Ohio or will he stay and help the young widow embrace a second chance at love?

The author of the series Sisters of the Heart and Seasons of Sugarcreek, Shelley Shepard Gray delivers an honest, tender love story in Ray of Light, featuring the challenges of faith, family, and romance.

First of all, I'd like to say that I really enjoyed the cover on this book, so different from many Amish book covers....which leads me to also mention, that this Amish story was quite different on the inside as well!

A very enjoyable read.  I think this may be the first book where I've read of the Amish actually taking a vacation, and a vacation on the beach no less!

If I were Roman, I'd need a break from my family as well, he leaves quite a bit of drama behind, this is actually the second book in this series, reading the first is not necessary to fall in love with the second.  Anyway, it's finally Roman's turn, he carries a lot on his shoulders and takes his responsibilities very seriously.

Then there is Amanda and her daughter, Regina, who have suffered a great heartbreak with the loss of Amanda's husband, and Regina's father.  Will they ever mend, or is there more heartbreak to come?

When the two worlds of Roman and Amanda collide life gets interesting, and I enjoyed every minute of this fun read, from the beach in FL to the snow in OH, this book kept me entertained!
