"Planted With Hope" by Tricia Goyer & Sherry Gore

About this book:

  “In the second installment of the Pinecraft Pie Shop series, you'll return to a town and a family you've already grown to love.
  When Hope Miller is offered the plot of land behind the Me, Myself, and Pie shop to start a garden, she jumps at the chance. Finally--some space away from her four sisters! But everyone in town seems to have an opinion about what she should grow and how she should grow it. When the widower schoolteacher, Jonas Sutter, asks if his students at the Amish school can help turn the plot into a community garden, Hope only halfheartedly agrees, wondering if she will ever get the peace and quiet she craves. And will she get anything to grow?
  The stories of friendship, community, and unexpected love within these pages will plant real seeds of hope within your heart.”

My personal Rating-
Just like the first book in this trilogy, “Planted With Hope” also has a great cover, good lessons, & tons of Spiritual Content. I really liked Hope & can personally relate to her in many ways. Emma was quite precious, and I liked those last two chapters the best! Another super sweet book in this series. :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
