What happens when we allow our pasts to define our futures?

Mary Margaret Miller needs an escape from her small Amish community. She boards a bus, all alone, for a vacation in Pinecraft, Florida. Meeting Betsy and Lilly on the way, she's amazed to find two kindred spirits. They become fast friends and determine to have the best two weeks of their lives. For Mary, it starts when she meets Jayson Raber, a handsome and charming carpenter.

Jayson is taken with Mary from the get-go, but he has responsibilities back home in Kentucky--including a girl he's supposed to marry. And when someone from Mary's past shows up in Pinecraft, it seems like her perfect vacation is ruined. But that's nothing compared to what's coming when she realizes what Jayson has been hiding . . .

"Her Heart's Desire, Shelley Shepard Gray's latest novel, is destined to delight lovers of her sweet Amish romances. Set in beautiful Pinecraft, Florida, the story of three young Amish women who see themselves as wallflowers is a new take on the 'mean girls' theme popular in mainstream films and books. Watching these women blossom and gain confidence in their newfound friendships offers hope to any of us who have experienced the loneliness of being on the outside looking in. Gray gives her readers the additional gift of not one but two lovely romances. A sweet read!"
