A Son's Vow By Shelly Shepard Gray GIVEAWAY!

Shelley Shepard Gray’s first book in her Charmed Amish Life series is set in the quaint Amish village of Charm, Ohio, and tells the stories of the Kinsinger siblings who are each struggling to find both forgiveness and love in the face of tragedy.
Three months ago, everything changed for Darla Kurtz and her family. Darla’s father was responsible for a terrible fire at Charm’s lumber mill which killed five Amish men. And though he, too, lost his life, the town of Charm hasn’t looked at her family the same since. Even Lukas Kinsinger—with whom Darla used to have a close friendship.
Now her brother’s anger at the town is spilling over onto Darla, and she has the bruises to prove it. The accident already cost five lives, but if something doesn’t change soon, Darla fears it will cost her—and her family—even more.
Lukas Kinsinger wants to mourn the loss of his father, but he can hardly find the time to breathe. Suddenly the head of his father’s lumber mill and responsible for taking care of his three siblings, he’s feeling the pressure. He has also never felt more alone—especially with the new tension between he and Darla. But when he learns of her troubles at home, Lukas knows he can’t simply stand by and watch. Someone has to help her before another tragedy occurs.
As Lukas and Darla attempt to repair their families, they discover something deeper than friendship growing between them. But will Lukas and Darla’s love be accepted after so much loss? Or will the pain of the past overcome any chance of future happiness?

This is an amazing read! A MUST READ!
I loved the happiness and Joy that was part of the ending of this book. I love it when people pull together for each other and look out for those they love. This had the best well rounded characters and the story as not like all the Amish books out there you will read something that I bet you have never read about in Amish books. I wish that I could share this book with everyone I know.
Love trumps everything. You are going to be glued to this book from page one. 
I gave this book 5 stars. I highly recommend this book and I can't wait to read book two in the Charmed Amish Life series.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
