Love's Journey Home By Kelly Irvin Giveaway!

It's been seven years since her husband died, but Helen Crouch is doing just fine. She's selling her jams and canned goods at the bakery and making a tidy living. But her whole world goes topsy-turvy when a new family moves to town. Gabriel Gless has brought his children to Bliss Creek to escape the worldly influences in Indiana. Helen and Gabriel have so much in common--the loss of their beloved spouses, the experience of raising their families alone, their rock-solid faith--so why can't they seem to speak without arguing?
And that's not all that's going on in Bliss Creek this summer. In the middle of a punishing drought, the community is faced with the decision to uproot their families and establish a new settlement. As families struggle to say goodbye, each one must find the faith to follow the Lord's direction.

This was the first book that I have read by Kelly Irvin but it sure will not be the last!  I loved the story of forgiveness and just how very difficult that can be. Kelly's writing riveted my attention throughout the whole book.  It is very well written and all of the characters were great and well rounded.  There were quite a few characters but you were still able to keep up with who was who.  They all had great and very differing personalities that really set them all apart. I cannot wait to read the next series by Kelly.
If you have not read any of Kelly's books, You are missing out on some great Amish fiction.
I gave this book 4 stars.
I was given this book by the publisher
