In Shelley Shepard Gray's second book in her Charmed Amish Life series, a young teacher and farmer discover they have much in common, especially when it comes to healing old wounds from the past.
"Rebecca Kinsinger wants nothing more than to be a teacher. But when she's given the opportunity she's been waiting for at Charm Amish School, she's dismayed to discover that teaching is hard work--work she's afraid she's not very good at. That is, until Lilly Yoder joins the class. A thirteen-year old who's just lost her parents, Lilly is in need of someone like Rebecca. For the first time since starting her new job, Rebecca feels like she can do some good. The only problem is that Lilly's uncle, Jacob, is handsome and kind and just too easy to talk to... Now the sole caregiver for his niece Lilly, Jacob Yoder never thought he'd be a single parent--or a farmer. Having been raised in Florida, Jacob has no farming experience and his frequent mishaps are a source of humor for much of the community. The only bright spot in his life is Rebecca Kinsinger. And as Lilly and Rebecca grow closer, Jacob's fondness for Rebecca grows, too. But when a fateful accident brings them together, Rebecca and Jacob must choose between duty and desire. Will they follow what's expected of them? Or set out to find true happiness...and true love?"-- Provided by publisher.

Heading back to Charm was a fun and heartwarming journey. The main romance within this story centers around Lucas Kissinger's (main hero of first book) sister, Rebecca and the new farmer/carpenter in town, Jacob Yoder. Per Gray fashion, Rebecca and Jacob's romance is the main, but not only romance within the pages. I particularly enjoyed the young romance between Jacob's niece Lilly and a fellow student. Although I didn't adore this book as much as the first in this series, it was still a sweet romance and a nice bridge and intro to Amelia and Simon's story in the next book. I'm really looking forward to the rest of their story.
