Review: Summer's Promise by Barbara Cameron

To Purchase
About the book:
Can she leave everything she knows for love?

Summer Carson has lived near the Amish community in Paradise, Pennsylvania, all her life. Now she's following in her father's footsteps and earning her degree in agricultural science so she can continue his work helping local farmers.

In her job at the county extension office, Summer moves between the Englisch and the Amish worlds. While she sometimes finds herself speaking—and even thinking—in Pennsylvania Deitsch, the transition isn't always easy. But what has come naturally to Summer is her attraction to one of the farmers: Abram Yoder is handsome, steady, and hardworking. He's everything so many of the Englisch men she knows are not. And Summer quickly realizes that she's caught his eye as well.

Can Summer give up the comforts she's always known for a life with this Amish man? And is Abram willing to let her try?

My Thoughts:

Summer's Promise is a very sweet read that shows how important true love is and what two people are willing to give up to attain that goal. Summer is an Englisher who has always lived near her Amish community. She is up to her eyeballs in work and college yet she is a very sweet woman who honestly is trying her best at living. Even helping others in very spare time. She recently lost her father to cancer and she strives to live in a way that would make him proud. She also has a great relationship with her mother whom she lives with and it was refreshing to see a beautiful mother and daughter relationship.

Abram, an Amish man, has taken over his parents farm after they have moved to Florida for a quieter life. He is missing his family and bachelorhood is not something he actually likes. But he is bound and determined to wait for true love and sees that as something much more rewarding than having a wife for convenience sake. Unfortunately even though there are several young single Amish ladies, none has caught his eye. Only one has and she is not part of his world.

These two have a connection almost from the start yet they try to hide their feelings under their growing friendship. They know how they feel and what their hearts desire is, but their love seems almost impossible from the start. Especially when one of them would have to sacrifice much to be accepted in the other's society. 

I enjoyed this lighthearted and inspirational romance. It was nice to just sit back and enjoy a story of romance at the heart of it all. 

I was provided a copy of this novel from the publisher. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
