The Harvest of Grace

Picking up right where The Bridge of Peace left off, Cindy Woodsmall takes us once more back into the lives of the characters we have come to know and love to see where their lives are headed, in the latest novel, The Harvest of Grace. This is the third book in the Ada's House series and it feels nice to head back to the Amish farm lands once more.

We find ourselves meeting a new friend, Sylvia Fisher, who is one of six daughters in her family and the one that has taken up working the family farm with her Daed. She hasn't wanted to live the typical Amish girls life and has made improvements to the dairy farm that have been instrumental for helping them turn the farm around and even begin making a huge profit. So when Elam, the boy she has imagined marrying, proposes, she isn't sure why she hesitates and asks for a few weeks to consider the request.

When she learns that because she asked for him to wait, he has asked her sister Beckie instead and they have agreed to marry instead. Feeling the ultimate sense of betrayal, Sylvia feels she has no choice but to leave the farm. When she answers an ad in the newspaper to assist another dairy farmer in need, her family is beyond hurt and her Daed tells her she won't be able to have contact with any of her sisters any longer.

Aaron Blank is the prodigal son who is returning to his fathers dairy farm after being in rehab to fight his alcoholism. Armed with a plan to convince his Daed and Mam to sell the farm and get out from under the mounting debt, he doesn't realize that he is about to come face to face with his newest challenge, Sylvia. She believes she can turn the family dairy farm around, but Aaron already has his mind set on running an appliance shop in the town of Owl Perch, he only needs his father's signature to make the deal complete.

I received the novel, The Harvest of Grace by Cindy Woodsmall compliments of WaterBrook Multnomah for my honest review. Once again new characters are introduced to the ones we have come to love and adore from the previous two novels and truly see in this one, that God's grace is available to anyone, no matter what their circumstances are or how far they feel like they have stepped away. An unforgettable story of redemption and forgiveness found among the love of family and friends. This one rates a 5 out of 5 stars!
