Chet and Kimberly have both failed when it comes to love. Will they risk their hearts to love again?
Chet Leonard’s life was forever changed when his seventeen year old son died and then, soon after, his wife walked out on their family. Over two years later, all he wants to do is hold onto his horse ranch and raise his remaining sons to be honorable men.
Kimberly Welch, widowed mother of Tara, a rebellious fifteen-year-old, has reached the end of her finances and nearly the end of her rope. She and Tara come to King’s Meadow to try to piece their lives back together again. Kimberly has no intention of become involved with the residents of this remote mountain community and certainly not with any man.
When 84-year-old Anna McKenna returns to King’s Meadow and to the Leonard ranch, she becomes an agent of change and healing for the two hurting families. With her help, Kimberly and Chet’s families at last discover a love without end.
In Brave Mom, Sherry Surratt, president and CEO of MOPS International, shares honestly and openly about the fears every mom struggles with. From worry about your child’s safety and health to wondering if you are a good parent, to fears about your marriage and loss of self-identity, Sherry comes alongside every mom with practical, real, and hopeful help for these common fears that we’re all afraid to talk about.
The 10 most common mom fears are each covered in their own easy to read chapter, made up of stories of real moms and the help and answers they found. Filled with advice and insight from Sherry and the hope and grace found in God’s wisdom, Brave Mom gives moms everything they need to leave fear behind and live the admittedly messy life of parenting with confidence and joy. Each chapter also contains a prayer for moms to help them turn their fears over to God’s protection and care.
As the mom experts, MOPS provide moms around the country a connection to other moms, practical help to move ahead, and the warmth and grace of God’s love.

This is my third year of the Goodreads Book Challenge and I uped my numbers this year. Two years ago I was a miserable failure..I guess having a baby and moving across country messed with my book-reading mojo. As a result, last year I set the bar a little lower then normal and exceeded it. If you participate in a book challenge please leave a comment or link me to your Goodreads or blog. I love finding out what other people are reading. I get my best suggestions from there, friends and Pinterest of all places. I’m a succor for the 100 Books To Read Before You Die list. I just came across this, Gilmore Girls inspired list and I am dying to jump into it.

I have been waiting to read this book and I was beyond excited. I don’t want the series to end and Cindy keeps it going with Seasons of Tomorrow. I felt like it was all coming to a head with this book. By this time in the series you are totally invested in these characters and you genuinely love them. I felt myself going through the emotions a ton in this book. There were some lovely new additional characters introduced during this book. Even though I felt as though this was probably the last book in the series I definitely wanted more. Cindy is great with the happy endings and that’s why I like to read. There were trials and tribulations, hardships along the way, but all’s well that ends well. This series is what made me really fall in love with Amish fiction. Having never read one before this I wasn’t really sure that I would be interested. She won me over I love it. I’ve read several others from different authors ( you can find those on my bookshelf tab ). Thanks for another great book Cindy.
