Some families have hope. Others have faith. The Shepherds of rural Oregon have Faith, Hope and Charly, three quirky sisters whose lives change forever when they reluctantly answer a personal calling to help other make amends.Thirty-something single parent Charly Shepherd is satisfied with her life raising two children and thousands of plants in her family owned Sweet Shepherd Nursery. Then tragedy strikes. As she and her siblings struggle to keep the nursery going, Charly begins to believe her family’s destiny is greater than raising flowers. When the three sisters reluctantly delve into family secrets to help their ailing father fulfill a promise, their lives change forever as they pursue a new inspirational path of discovery, heartache, humor and redemption.
My thoughts:
This was a nice read. It took me a while to connect with the characters, but they were likeable. I love how Nicola gave each sister her own distinct personality.
I also enjoyed Charly’s children, as they are about the same age as mine and get on each others nerves just like mine 🙂
This wasn’t an intense read for me. Nothing held me captive and drew me to back to the book. I like a bit more tension and drama I guess. But like I said it was a nice read and a great message about the power of family and pulling together when things get tough.
If you don’t like tons of romance or suspense you would probably enjoy this book for a nice relaxing read and an escape from your everyday life. Or if you are just looking for something a bit different you might want to give this one a try.
