Book Review: Harvest of Grace by Cindy Woodsmall

About Harvest of Grace:

Reeling from an unexpected betrayal, can Sylvia find relief from the echoes of her past…or will they shape her future forever?
Although Sylvia Fisher recognizes that most Old Order Amish women her age spend their hours managing a household and raising babies, she has just one focus—tending and nurturing the herd on her family’s dairy farm. But when a dangerous connection with an old beau forces her to move far from home, she decides to concentrate on a new start and pour her energy into reviving another family’s debt-ridden farm.
After months in rehab, Aaron Blank returns home to sell his Daed’s failing farm and move his parents into an easier lifestyle. Two things stand in his way: the father who stubbornly refuses to recognize that Aaron has changed and the determined new farmhand his parents love like a daughter. Her influence on Aaron’s parents could ruin his plans to escape the burdens of farming and build a new life.
Can Aaron and Sylvia find common ground? Or will their unflinching efforts toward opposite goals blur the bigger picture— a path to forgiveness, glimpses of grace, and the promise of love.

My Thoughts:

We're going to change it up a little and I'm going to begin by telling you what I didn't like, it's a short list. I didn't like the fact that I had not read the first two books in this series first. Other than that, this was a book I loved! Amish have a very interesting culture to read about. I also love that this is a book I could easily hand to one of my children, provided they could read, and I would know it was appropriate for them. I remember loving this type of book as a young teenager because they were romantic but they were clean reading that I could take to school. I will be passing the book on to my sister who is currently in that stage so she can enjoy it as well. This is a book that would make a great Christmas gift!

Happy reading!

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review
