A Promise of Grace By Lynette Sowell

Rochelle Keim has lived in Pinecraft for almost twenty years among her Mennonite brethren and the Amish of Sarasota. Unlike the snowbirds who visit Pinecraft from the north, Rochelle is a year-round resident of the unique Plain community. She’s quiet, content, and keenly adept at keeping her past firmly tucked away. Feeling unsettled as she nears her fortieth birthday, she decides to return to nursing school, a dream she gave up long ago during a painful time she dares not remember. Her past decides to make itself present when Silas Fry, Rochelle’s former love, moves to Pinecraft. Silas spent the past two decades working as a missionary pilot, but that all changed with the sudden loss of his wife, Belinda—Rochelle’s childhood best friend. Now both Rochelle and Silas are on a collision course with their past, and the reunited couple must decide if they’re trying to resurrect a dead romance, or if the two very different people whose paths have crossed can make a new life together.

This was by far my favorite of the three books I have read in the Seasons of  Pinecraft series so far.
Rochelle and Silas were so easy to love. I love how the whole story played out.
Some of the past Characters make an appearance in this book and it was good to get to spend time with them again.
I never wanted to see this book end but from what I can tell there will be another book, I need a little bit of closure.
I of course loving this series so much, I gave this book 5 stars. And I recommend this book as well as the whole series.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
