    Hopeful by Shelley Shephard Gray My rating: 4 of 5 stars I am growing quite weary of “Christian Amish romances” that do not deliver what is promised. When I pick up a book in this genre, I have an expectation that I will read about a simple life, have a little romance, and read about how these amazing people solve […]
