Bestselling author Shelley Shepard Gray continues her Amish Brides of Pinecraft series with a special addition—a tale of wishing and wanting...and what the heart really needs
Good things may come to those who wait, but Mattie Miller is confident that great things come to those who go after what they want…and Mattie wants Danny Brenneman. Danny is the reason she's returned to the sunny Amish community of Pinecraft, Florida—well, that and to see her best friend Leona get married.
Mattie's met Danny only once before but she knows the spark between them is sure to lead to something special. Despite a missing cat, wedding day chaos, and Danny himself, she's confident this vacation can only end one way: in an engagement of her very own!
My thoughts: A WISH ON GARDENIA STREET is the story of Mattie who has imagined that her penpal, Danny and she had developed a mail relationship. So Mattie happily goes to Pinecraft for her best friend's wedding, confident that she will end up engaged.
Add wedding plans, a missing cat, and other plans going awry and Mattie's wishes seem doomed to fail. But along the way she learns a valuable lesson about keeping faith, not giving up, and trusting God knows best.
A great story, but short. I expected one a bit longer than this. And while it says 112 pages, this includes two excerpts from other books by Ms. Gray. The story itself is only about 74 pages.
Cute. Recommended for fans of Amish fiction, Ms. Gray, and short stories.
