Cultivating love for one another and finding faith in yourself can create "The Harvest of Grace."

This Amish fiction tale blends together several relationships as they blosson and come together to create a happy community surrounding Ada's House. Sylvia Fisher, a young Amish woman, has the love of her family's farm and land running through her veins. When faced with a marriage proposal that would change her whole way of life, she puts off her intended, only to lose him to her younger sister. A slip of their emotions after the marriage takes place sends Sylvia out to another farm where she can start over and hopefully help this family turn their farm into a thriving and profitable operation again. There she must team up with their returning, wayward son to get their farm back on the mend. Will this family be able to get past all the disappointments and tragedies of the past to heal and move on? Can Sylvia ever forgive herself for acting on a moment of impulse and be able to connect with her family once again? Come follow this tale to find these answers and to see how having faith and love can plant the seeds to have a harvest of grace.

Since this is the third book in this series, I was a little concerned about not having read the first two and being able to keep all the separate relationships straight, but Ms. Woodsmall did a wonderful job at keeping it all connected, but separate at the same time so that it made sense. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know all the separate character's and their diffferent relationships and how they all came to be. I especially liked getting to know Sylvia as a more independent Amish woman than in some other Amish fiction that I have read. If you are in the market for a really good Amish story, this is definitely one that you don't want to pass up.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Amish fiction mixed with a bit of sweet romance thrown in.

This book was kindly provided to me by the publishers of WaterBrook Multnomah for my honest review.
