Book Review: The Harvest of Grace

The Harvest of Grace is a true romance in the making. It is well written with strong characters.

Sylvia is the oldest of nine girls, single, and leaves home which is unheard of in the Amish community. This happened when Sylvia and her brother-in-law, which happened to be her previous beau, could not keep their feelings in check. How did Elam go from being her boyfriend to her brother-in-law?

Sylvia takes a job at a Dairy Farm for an older couple, the Blanks. Their son Aaron, whom never wanted to be a farmer, comes home following rehab trying to convince his parents to leave the farm and move to town with him. Instead he finds Sylvia trying to help his Dad get the farm back in the red. Will Sylvia and Aaron work out their differences?

There are several other romances taking place developing in the story also. Cara ended up in Dry Lake with her daughter Lily. Cara grew up in the Bronx, her mom died when she was young and her dad abandoned her. Cara has found her self head over heels in love with of all people an Amish man. Will Cara ever get through her training and learn the Amish ways? Can she leave her old life behind?

There is also Lena Mast who has a large birthmark on the side of her face; she is in love with Grey. Grey also loves her but he is an upstanding Amish man who lost his wife last year. They have to wait out a mourning period before they can proceed with their life together.

There are a few other characters you can meet and answer all the questions when you read the book The Harvest of Grace. This is a very good fast paced book. There is a lot going on and it keeps your interest. It is written very well.

I received this book free from Blogging for Books at Waterbrook Press Publishing as part of their Blogger Review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
