A Son's Vow (Review)
This review is for the book "A Son's Vow" by Shelley Shepard Gray. In this book, readers meet a community struck by tragedy. Three months prior to the beginning of the book there was a fire at a local lumber mill that killed five Amish men. They were husbands, fathers, brothers, boyfriends... the whole community was affected by the fire. There is a lot of animosity, bitterness and blame throughout the community.
In this story, Lukas Kinsinger, the head of the mill, reaches out to his best friend, Darla Kurtz, whose father died in the fire and has been blamed for accidentally starting it. The book revolves around their relationship and processing the bitterness that has grown between their two families. We are also introduced to Hannah, who lost a boyfriend in the fire, and by the end of the book we are seeing a new relationship blossom with her.
In this book we see families processing a tragedy and trying to work through it. The romance between Lukas and Darla cannot be denied but it is a tough road to travel. I am excited that this is a new series from Shelley Shepard Gray, because I really enjoyed the story and the characters. I want to find out what will happen to Hannah in the next book.
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
