A Promise for Miriam ( The Pebble Creek Amish #1 )
By: Vannetta Chapman
I have read several of Vannetta Chapman's book and I have loved all of them. She knows how to grab your attention and hold you till you finish. A Promise for Miriam is the first book in The Pebble Creek romance series. I did not have any problem following the story or the characters. Miriam King is an Amish school teacher and is contented with her life and her students. Miriam is twenty-six and she has not met any man that she would love enough to give up her teaching in Pebble Creek, Wisconsin . She loves her students. Gabriel Miller has lost his wife. He and his daughter, Grace, moves to Pebble Creek, he wants to be left alone. Gabriel carries Grace to school and meets her new teacher , Miriam. Grace has a problem, she does not talk. miriam wants to help her and don't know where to start. After a tragedy with Grace, Gabriel has no choice but to ask for help from his neighbors. I loved this story and meeting all of Pebble Creek. I found myself laughing at times and then other times I felt like crying. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review , and I have given it.
