About the Book
Hopeful Return to Sugarcreek, Book One
In the Amish town of Sugarcreek, love comes in many forms. But will it come at all for Miriam?
Miriam Zehr has worked at the Sugarcreek Inn longer than she cares to admit. The restaurant is a favorite of town residents as well as the many tourists who come to taste the famous Amish fare. Though she always tries to have a smile for every customer, deep down Miriam knows something’s missing: a family of her own.
Miriam has never felt particularly beautiful, especially because she’s always been a bit heavier than other girls her age. When Junior, the man she’s pined for all her life, suddenly seeks her out, she’s thrilled to be noticed . . . until she realizes he’s only asking her to help get the attention of Mary Kathryn Hershberger, her pretty friend.
If Miriam helps Junior court Mary Kathryn, she’ll get to spend a lot of time with him, but she might lose him in the process. Are these few stolen moments worth a lifetime of sacrifice? Is Miriam right to even hope for the life she dreams of?

Shelley Shepard Gray
Shelley Shepard Gray is a two-time New York Times bestseller, a two-time USA Today bestseller, a finalist for the American Christian Fiction Writers prestigious Carol Award, and a two-time Holt Medallion winner. She lives in Southern Ohio, where she writes full-time, bakes too much, and can often be found walking her dachshunds on her town’s bike trail.
My review;
 This is the first book in the Return to Sugarcreek Series. In  this book Miriam is the kind of girl that always seems to be in the background watching someone else be happy. She has liked a certain man from afar for a long time. When it looks like he is going to be out of her life for good,because he likes her best friend she tries not to show how sad she really is.
She tries to put on a happy face but it is something that is not easy to do.  I love this author and I love this kind of story.  Most of us in our own life have liked someone and sometimes we end up happy and sometimes we don't. I give this book a 4/5. I cannot wait until the next book comes out in this series. I was given this book by Litfuse Publicity and all opinions are my own.
