    The opening pages of Ray of Light tended to be somewhat confusing and disappointing to me in that the characters were alluding to personalities and events undiscernible at that point in the story However, eventually it all fit together like a good story should with all the pieces basically falling in place.I think we Englishers tend to compartmentalize the Amish in nice little farming or village situations far removed from our world However, theone reads about them, thelike us th The opening pages of Ray of Light tended to be somewhat confusing and disappointing to me in that the characters were alluding to personalities and events undiscernible at that point in the story However, eventually it all fit together like a good story should with all the pieces basically falling in place.I think we Englishers tend to compartmentalize the Amish in nice little farming or village situations far removed from our world However, theone reads about them, thelike us they seem They have problems, disappointments, secrets which they hide, secrets which when revealed create major discord, joys, and pleasures in a variety of things We learn, too, that they tire of the cold Tire of sorrow Tire of family problems And they, too, must take refuge away from it all.Our story opens with Roman Keim on the beach in Pinecraft, Florida, which is an Amish snowbird community In the house next door, a lovely Amish widow and her young daughter, Regina, are also taking a few days of refuge.It is soon revealed that Roman s world back in Ohio is not only cold in Winter, but there are problems, secrets, hurts which have caused him to need to get away and apart And for the widow Amanda next door, she has been grieving for two years the loss of her dear husband and father of Regina after a long illness.The demands, spoken and unspoken, of the Amish communities on each of these young adults must be addressed in how they individually will react A sweet attraction develops quickly between Amanda, Roman, and the sweetie, Regina But Amanda is criticized for not grieving longer.I absolutely fell in love with the sweetie little Regina She steals Roman s heart as well And in the mix, Amanda finds her heart is reaching out to a new life.A very good, clean read which I can heartily recommend to teens and adults alike.DISCLOSURE A complimentary review copy was provided by Litfuse Publicity Group on behalf of the Avon Inspire an Imprint of Harrper Collins Publisher and the author, Shelley Shepard Gray in exchange for my honest review Opinions expressed are solely my own and no compensation was received for this review

    I have come to the conclusion that Shelley Shepard Gray s book s are like a bag of Lay s Potato Chips You can never eat just one chip and you can never read just one of her books Really, go ahead and try to stop after reading one As soon as I finished Daybreak I immediately started thinking about the next book See what I mean Ray of Light is the second book in The Days of Redemption series We find ourselves back in the seemly idyllic lives of the Keim family If you read Daybreak then you I have come to the conclusion that Shelley Shepard Gray s book s are like a bag of Lay s Potato Chips You can never eat just one chip and you can never read just one of her books Really, go ahead and try to stop after reading one As soon as I finished Daybreak I immediately started thinking about the next book See what I mean Ray of Light is the second book in The Days of Redemption series We find ourselves back in the seemly idyllic lives of the Keim family If you read Daybreak then you know this reality is really not so Roman Keim needs to escape the family drama which lands him in sunny Pinecraft, Florida Roman keeps to himself and tends to be on the quiet side but being in Florida brings out a side of himself that even he is surprised about He finds a sense of courage that he probably never knew existed until he left Berlin Courage that led him to Amanda Yoder and her adorable little girl Regina He feels a strong connection to Amanda and he thinks she may like him too Perhaps a romance is on the horizon or is Roman putting the cart before the horse They do live miles apart from each other and distance is not the only factor that could threaten their budding relationship You didn t expect love to be an easy bridge to cross, did you I always feel like I should thank the author after I read their work, especially if the book is as good as this one is Ray of Light will not only capture your attention but your heart as well and for that Shelley Shepard Gray I am thankful Kudos to you for writing another wonderful book and for your ability to always keep me coming back for another chip

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book At first I was a little hesitant I didn t read the first book and in the beginning it seemed like there were a lot of characters and I was having trouble following, but I didn t have to worry for long because I soon settled into a familiarity with all the characters I loved that it was such a sweet story and not only was it a sweet story, but it was such a moving and touching tale of moving on past loss and grief That was probably the best element of the story I thoroughly enjoyed this book At first I was a little hesitant I didn t read the first book and in the beginning it seemed like there were a lot of characters and I was having trouble following, but I didn t have to worry for long because I soon settled into a familiarity with all the characters I loved that it was such a sweet story and not only was it a sweet story, but it was such a moving and touching tale of moving on past loss and grief That was probably the best element of the story We shroud grief so much in our culture that we don t always talk about how we move on, we just expect people to do it But this story, this story was such a moving example of the conflicting emotions around moving on It made me laugh, it made me cry, and it made me wonder about the people in my life who might still be grieving and how to help them, even though I m sure that was not the intent, that it s not like a self help book or non fiction book I also love how the title, Ray of Light, can apply to so many of the characters in the book It s fun to make all those connections I d recommend this book to anyone who likes clean romance, as well as to anyone who enjoys Amish fiction.Disclosure I received a free copy of this book in order to provide an honest review

    This book follows the love story of Roman Keim, Viola s brother It also continues to expand upon some of the Keim family drama that was originally introduced in the first book I thought it was a pretty good story, and liked it a little better than the first one view spoiler As with the first one, I felt some things were a little rushed just for the sake of moving the plot forward In this case it was Roman s appointment as preacher The other aspect of it that I didn t like was he was appoi This book follows the love story of Roman Keim, Viola s brother It also continues to expand upon some of the Keim family drama that was originally introduced in the first book I thought it was a pretty good story, and liked it a little better than the first one view spoiler As with the first one, I felt some things were a little rushed just for the sake of moving the plot forward In this case it was Roman s appointment as preacher The other aspect of it that I didn t like was he was appointed to make some plot intrigue but then it like wasn t mentioned or didn t really seem to overly effect him and his relationship until almost the end of the book hide spoiler One thing I do like about this series is that the family seems real Yes, they re Amish, but they struggle with issues just like everyone else which is something a lot of Amish type books neglect People are people and they all go through the same kind of issues So props to Shelley Shepard Gray for that one I ll be starting the final book soon and I m excited to see how things are resolved
