This week my pick is Autumn's Promise, Seasons of Sugarcreek, Book 3 by Shelley Shepard Gray! I don't normally like a lot of Amish fiction but this series is really good so far. Maybe because each book has an English family, the Allens as well as an Amish family, the Grabers and is not solely centered around the Amish. I liked Winter's Awakening, (my review here) Book 1 in the series but Spring's Renewal (review to come) was a lot better and from the Goodreads blurb for Autumn's Promise I can tell it's going to be even better! If you'd like to see for yourself I've included the blurb below! Let me know what you think about this series if you've read it or want to read or what you think about Amish fiction in general!

From Goodreads:
Until Robert Miller met Lilly Allen, his world had been dark. A widower after only two years of marriage, he's been living in a haze, filled with grief. He feels his life is already over-even though he's only twenty-five.

But his friendship with Lilly changes everything. For the first time since he can remember, he finds new reasons to wake up each day. Soon, he knows he's falling in love with Lilly. However, he also knows a marriage between the two of them can never happen. Lilly Allen is only eighteen. She had become pregnant out of wedlock. And, she's an Englisher. He, of course, is Amish.

Lilly also feels a strong attraction to Robert. She admires his quiet strength and dependability. She's also in awe of his devotion to his wife's memory. Lilly knows she could never measure up to his perfect Amish wife. She also comes to realize that no matter how much she might love a person, she can't change who she is. She loves Robert-not the Amish faith. No matter how much she loves him.she doesn't know if she'll ever be able to give up her independence and reliance on the modern world in order to say vows.

Coming from different worlds, does their love stand a chance?

Available August 2010 from Harper Collins Publishers!
