A Son's Vow by Shelley Shepard Gray

From the publisher:
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.

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 the first in a series by Shelley Shepard Gray.  As with most series, the first book is introducing a lot of characters.  So it might take little bit to keep everyone straightened out at first.  But soon you connect everyone together.  I was honestly more interested in one of the other characters than the main character. i felt that this other story line was more engaging and I am curious to know what happens next.  This is what is great about a series--readers will relate to certain characters more and many people will be able enjoy the series. 

While I was engaged through out the book I felt that it was too many story lines for such a small book.  But perhaps that's just because it's the first book in a series.  I also wasn't so certain about how two of the girls seemed totally fine to show off shoulders when I feel that they probably would be more reserved.

That being said, it was a good read and I will be looking forward to more books in this series.

I received this book free from the publishers in exchange for my honest review.
