Reviews

  • RAY OF LIGHT

    A delight to read, a light romance, and a very different lifestyle not adhered to by most Amish communities.

    Shelley’s books are fun, tender hearted, tales of love, forgiveness, and overcoming. You won’t be disappointed!

    You might want to add this book to your summer reading pile. It was a good fast read as most of Shelley’s books are. This is a book that will leave you wanting more and you may end up mad that you have to wait on the next book to come out.

  • It seemed different from a lot of the other Amish books I’ve read – maybe because of the travelling. You don’t hear of too many Amish people going to Florida for vacation! But I really enjoyed the side of it – it made it seem a little more relatable.

    Both of the main characters are likeable and I enjoyed watching them grow in their faith and character throughout the book. Roman needs to sort out the difference between responsibility and self-imposed duty, between following what’s expected of him to following what God has called him to do. Amanda also recognizes the need to not become bound by the past – either by her own expectations or the expectations of her late husband’s family.

  • BOOK REVIEW: RAY OF LIGHT BY SHELLEY SHEPARD GRAY

    It was nice to read of an Amish community outside of Ohio, Indiana, and Pennsylvania. Those three locales have been covered ad nauseum. Perhaps because of the locale, the Amish have a different lifestyle in Florida. This was covered nicely in the novel.

    Amanda and Roman’s relationship parallels that of Lovina and Aaron in the subplot, continuing the theme of a second chance at love.

    Perhaps the most welcome change found in this novel is the depiction of the Amish as real people with real problems. With this, the characters become believable, instead of cookie-cutter stereotypes.

    I will be looking for the first book of the series, as well as looking forward to the next installment.

  • BOOK REVIEW – “RAY OF LIGHT”

    “Ray of Light” is the second book in Shelley Shepard Gray’s The Days of Redemption Series and I really enjoyed book 1, I enjoyed this one even more! This is not “just another Amish novel,” this is a story of secrets, love and moving on after heartbreak that will tug at your heartstrings and have you rooting for the characters to find love and happiness.

  • GREAT BOOK ABOUT A GREAT FAMILY

    What impressed me most about the book was the ability of the characters to cherish the positive of their past in their heart and yet embrace with hope what was to come. There are many interesting characters in the book including a very young widow who is a mother, twin girls, one of whom travels outside the US for the first time to visit her future husband.

    Shelley really captures the Amish lifestyle in her tales and it shines in this novel. From the Amish community in Florida to the farm-life in Ohio, it’s fascinating to read about the lifestyle of these quiet and faithful people. She also captures the intense faith that the Amish are known for in a intriguing story that keeps the reader’s attention throughout the tale.

  • BOOK REVIEW: “RAY OF LIGHT” BY SHELLEY SHEPARD GRAY

    I made a mistake. I did not read the first book in this series, “Daybreak”. But that is okay as Ms. Gray did a wonderful job in keeping this a stand alone within the series. It helps if you know what happened in the first book however it does not detract from the current goings on.

  • Ray of Light was a perfect Amish read! I love reading Amish books and I really enjoyed the different setting this one provided. It started out in Florida. Did you know there is an Amish community here? I’ve been talking about visiting it. It’s near Sarasota, FL Which is only a few hours away from us. I felt close to the characters and would love to read book one is this series. This is a light read and if you like Amish books you will love this one!

  • RAY OF LIGHT BY SHELLEY SHEPARD GRAY

    I don’t know what I usually associated Shelley Shepard Gray with mystery books but for some reason, I did. Now that I know that she’s not really that type of writer, I think I need to get more of her books. I liked this one so much that I have already downloaded the first book in this series, Daybreak.

    As for mystery, it does have a lot of unanswered questions and a lot of secrets that surround the Keim family. I enjoyed finding them out as the story went along. I liked how she recapped on the secrets revealed in the first book, without letting you know too much detail that you wouldn’t need to read the first book.

    I’ve been a huge fan of Shelley’s for quite some time and loved the blend of my favorite places Amish country in Ohio alongside a beachfront setting in Florida. It shows just how many times God will show us a ray of light in the darkest of our storms to teach us better things are on our horizon.

  • RAY OF LIGHT BY SHELLEY S. GRAY

    The Romance playing between Amanda and Roman is sweet, but what I really enjoyed was the inclusion of Regina Amanda’s daughter. I loved that Author Gray included Regina as a key part into the romance between her mom and Roman. I thought it brought her book into a more personal level plucking at the heart strings. It was believable seeing Regina and Roman’s family interacting together. I fell in love with the prospect of having this bundle of joy and energy rejuvenate Roman’s family.

  • RAY OF LIGHT

    My favorite part of Ray of Light is that Shelley Shepard Gray has broken with the usual and created an Amish family that is every bit as nutty and dysfunctional as any “Englischer” family around. It was refreshing to read of Amish people with problems just like the rest of us.

    Ray of Light was a wonderful and charming read. It was very well written, with characters that you will immediately fall in love with. I enjoyed the journey seen throughout of moving from grief to hope in the future, and all the emotions dealt with along the way. It was a great reminder that only through God can we truly move past grief and let the past go.

  • RAY OF LIGHT

    The second book in Shelley Shepard Gray’s Days of Redemption series, Ray of Light continues the story of the Keim family that began in Daybreak. Various member of the extended Keim family have had some secrets, some of which came to light in Daybreak. Much to everyone’s surprise, even more family secrets are revealed in Ray of Light. Although distressed at first that their secrets are out of the bag, by book’s end, those who had their secrets exposed realize that hiding things from their family is actually more difficult than dealing with the past openly.

  • LITFUSE PUBLICITY: RAY OF LIGHT BY SHELLEY SHEPARD GRAY (REVIEW)

    I have not read the first book in this series, Days of Redemption, but that did not make it hard to know what was going on. I did take some time figuring out who was whose dad, mom and grandparents, but otherwise the book read just like any other book that is a stand alone (although now, I really want to read Book One). Usually when I read an Amish fiction book it revolves around either Ohio or Pennsylvania and not about Pinecraft, Florida where there is a vibrant and prospering Amish community. Roman’s family has a lot of issues from secrets being kept, I’m sure more detail is given in book one, however they are also discussed in this book so you’re not left wondering what is going on, and wants to escape for awhile so he travels on vacation to Florida…….

  • RAY OF LIGHT

    This is the second installment of the Days of Redemption series. And it was just as good as the first book in the series. More secrets of the Keim family are brought to light. Viola goes to Belize to visit Ed before they are married, but is Belize really the place for her? Roman goes on vacation to Florida and meets Amanda and her daughter Regina. They come to visit when he goes back to Ohio, will they have a happy ending. Peter gets out of rehab and then Marie has some problems. Then there is Elsie, will she ever find her true love. As with the last book, Shelley leaves you wanting more, and I can’t wait for the next book in the series, which in entitled Eventide. Shelley always writes with such feeling and make the characters so human. Great job again Shelley.

  • RAY OF LIGHT

    This is the first book I have read by this author and I am happy that I said I would review it. There were a couple of things that drew me to this book, one is that is is a book about the Amish which I love and the second is that is is set in Florida which is where I live so I enjoy reading books that take place here. I have not read the first book in the series yet but I did not have any trouble reading this book. I do want to now go back and read the first one as well. Another thing I liked about this book was how it had a romance feel to it without it being heavy. This was also a story about moving on but not forgetting the one we have lost. It is good to show how that can be done. I think is a must read book especially if you are a fan of Amish Fiction. 5 Stars

  • I really enjoyed Ray of Light. I enjoyed the setting of Florida, it is definitely different from the farms of Ohio and Pennsylvania. The characters of Roman and Amanda were well-developed and easy to feel like it was someone you knew personally. I found it interesting that Roman’s family had many issues to deal with, secrets that have been kept from family members. Often the Amish families just seem so perfect, so this was more realistic to me.

  • “RAY OF LIGHT” BY SHELLEY SHEPARD GRAY A NEW YORK TIMES & USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR (REVIEW & GIVEAWAY)

    The opening pages of Ray of Light tended to be somewhat confusing and disappointing to me in that the characters were alluding to personalities and events indiscernible at that point in the story. However, eventually it all fit together like a good story should with all the pieces basically falling in place.

    I think we “Englishers” tend to compartmentalize the Amish in nice little farming or village situations far removed from our world. However, the more one reads about them, the more like us they seem. They have problems, disappointments, secrets which they hide, secrets which when revealed create major discord, joys, and pleasures in a variety of things. We learn, too, that they tire of the cold. Tire of sorrow. Tire of family problems. And they, too, must take refuge away from it all.

  • HEALING AS A RAY OF LIGHT: REALISTIC AND LOVABLE CHARACTERS IN THIS STORY!

    I really enjoyed this book even though I had not read the first in the series.

    Honestly, I didn’t realize it was part two when I requested and when I realized I was scared I wouldn’t be able to follow along but I had no issues whatsoever.

    This was also the first time I had read anything by this author or about new order Amish so it was a real treat to read something different. I will definitely be picking up the rest of this series.

    I thought the characters were realistic and very well fleshed out. I liked that they seemed real and had real issues rather than this perfect idyllic life that often prevents the readers from forming a connection with the characters.

    I enjoyed getting to know Roman and Amanda, as well as her little girl. I also enjoyed getting to know about Roman’s family back home as their story is told, too, but that part is more women’s fiction. There are a lot of secrets in Roman’s family, and some drama. Roman feels he lives a quiet uneventful life, and sometimes he feels like a boring individual, but as the cliché goes, still waters run deep.

    This is another heartwarming Amish story from author Shelley Shepard Gray. I love that Ms. Gray’s Amish stories tell more than the plain simple life of an Amish family, but the real day to day difficult life situations that we all face everyday, Amish or not. Roman’s family certainly has their secrets, and they all seem to be coming out at one time. And then the family seems to all be going in different directions, and who be hold the household and farm together?

  • RAY OF LIGHT

    Shelley Shepard Gray is a long time favorite of mine, so I knew I would be in for a treat reading this book. I really enjoyed the characters in this story. Roman was someone that was so easy to understand. His calm, peaceful demeanor was refreshing. Amanda and her little girl were just endearing. Amanda had suffered more than a few hardships which made me hopeful that she might get a happily ever after. While this book is the second in The Days of Redemption series the author provides enough information that it can be read as a stand alone work. I didn’t read the first book but had no problems diving right into this one. Overall, I found this an interesting read, I felt like Roman’s family really kept the story moving, and look forward to seeing where things go in “Eventide” the next book in the series. Fans of Amish fiction will certainly enjoy this story that deals with family drama, romance, second chances and faith.

Both Roman and Amanda are thoroughly endearing and of course, Regina captivates everyone she meets, even if only through the pages of a book! Although Roman and Amanda are the focus, the rest of the family members’ stories weaves throughout the book as each of them continue to deal with the long-hidden family secrets that are coming to light….

  • This book is the second in the series and I really do feel like you actually need to read the first one in order to get a really good grasp on what is going on with this family. The book starts out with so many characters and a story line that is already in progress. It was very hard for me to learn who was who in the family and to figure out what exactly had taken place. The book is very well written and it is filled with Amish drama like none other I’ve read, but it was definitely not as enjoyable having not read the first book in the series.

    I recommed that you read the first one and then read this one as it is a great book.

    This is a very sweet story of two people trying to escape something – for Amanda it’s the grief of losing her husband and for Roman, it’s the drama in his family. I love how the author shows that we can find love anywhere at anytime. Roman and Amanda never dream that they will meet that special someone while Roman is on vacation for only a week! It’s a perfect picture of how the Lord has a plan and works things together for us in a way we wouldn’t have imagined.

  • “RAY OF LIGHT” BY SHELLEY SHEPARD GRAY

    Shelley Shepard Gray has penned another winner. I love her books for the reality of the characters, and Ray of Light is no exception. Most of the events of this book could happen to anyone; they are real, ordinary problems that any of us could have – except Gray’s characters are Amish, adding another layer of interest to an already fascinating story.

    Ray of Light is the second in this series, but while I haven’t read it, it was not difficult to pick up on the characters or the past that was disclosed in the first book. That doesn’t stop me from wanting to read it, however; I think reading the books in the wrong order actually makes me want to read that first one even more, and the same is true for the third. I can’t wait to find out what happens to them!

  • RAY OF LIGHT, THE DAYS OF REDEMPTION SERIES, BOOK TWO BY SHELLEY SHEPARD GRAY

    The author writes of healing for so many of the characters in this book. Giving up the past to God and and going forward for the plans he has for them. Some of the characters cling to the pain of the past not so willing to give up what is eating them alive making them bitter and depressed. My favorite characters in this book were Regina and Elsie they had more strength than all of them in the end.

  • FAMILY AND ROMANCE

    Ray of Light is an enjoyable second installment in Shelley Shepard Gray’s The Days of Redemption series.

    Some of the characters — like Roman’s grandparents — seem to round out much better in this second book. The secrets revealed with little detail in book one begin to fill out the story much more as the series progresses. And there are several loose ends and hints at new twists that make me anxious to see how the series concludes in Eventide.

  • This series is truly unique because this Amish family has a lot of problems. It’s rare for an author to be brave enough to show that an Amish family isn’t so different than a non-Amish family. We all have problems – no one is perfect.

  • REVIEW – RAY OF LIGHT

    Most of the Amish books I have read are either set in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Kansas, or Missouri, but this is the first book I have read that has an Amish community in Florida. The author does a good job creating likeable characters and a realistic plot, which is lacking in some recent romance novels. Overall, I enjoyed reading Ray of Light. I just purchased the first book, so hopefully I’ll have it read before the final book, Eventide, is released.

  • WONDERFUL READ

    This book, even though it is second in the series can pretty much stand alone.
    Although I would love to read the first one. This is a perfect book for sitting on the porch and having a relaxing and enjoyable time in reading.

    I recommend this book for teenagers and up!!

  • BLOG TOUR: RAY OF LIGHT

    In short, this was a relatively short interesting read about two charming people from a slightly different Amish community.
