I received a complimentary copy of this book as a part of a book tour for a fair and honest review

Reminding us that “home is where the heart is”, Charlotte Hubbard takes us on a journey back to Willow Ridge in Harvest of Blessings, the fifth installment in her Seasons of the Heart series. Filled with beloved characters, a prodigal daughter returning home after years away, and showcasing God’s command to forgive and love each other, Ms. Hubbard’s story will grab your attention from beginning to

This book was very good but it took me all week to read it since I had to babysit so much, and I lost my momentum in reading. Otherwise, I would have enjoyed it more. It did relate a story about love and forgiveness, and of course, faith and love, which is common in most Amish books. I did like how the story line flowed and it was easy to understand. I definitely will be looking for more of this author's books.

We are back in Willow Ridge with our Amish/Mennonite families, at least that is how they feel to me, as we have come to know and love them through the pen of the Author Charlotte Hubbard.
We open the book with Nora Glick Landwehr purchasing the home of Hiram Knepp, that beautiful home that he owned when he was the local Bishop. I could feel myself cringing, knowing the reputation of that man, but who is Nora? We are about to find out and I found myself walking in her shoes. She has not had an

Not just a pretty cover! Truly this is a very nice read for all the Amish and Amish romance fans!.

It is a part of the Seasons of the Heart series and is a very sweet story of Nora Landwehr as she returns to her former Amish community in the hopes of reconciling with her family after a sad misunderstanding. Her return brings her home to Willow Ridge in a flashy red car, divorced, short shorts and all things Englisch. Yet her goal is to bridge the years of family separation, and repair the 16

"Maybe you won't have to worry about sitting through church. You haven't been allowed back into the fellowship yet. Haven't been forgiven." Forgiveness is demanded in the Bible but that doesn't mean it is so easy to extend it. This book is a beautiful example of why we need to forgive and how we can finally find it. Can Nora find reconciliation with her family and a romance of her own? It is so hurtful when close family members refuse to forgive and resolve conflicts. I have certainly ...more

Harvest of Blessings is Book Five in the Seasons of the Heart series. It's the first book I've read in this series and what a wonderful book! Forgiveness can be hard to give and in some circumstances hard to receive. The author does an outstanding job in bringing her characters, descriptions and details into a fascinating novel concerning forgiveness and love. I highly recommend reading Harvest of Blessings and if you haven't read Books One - Four in this series, you may want to seriously ...more

Nora (Glick) Landwehr returns to her Amish hometown of Willow Ridge, MO, 16 years after leaving a large part of herself there and joining the English world. After a failed marriage, she has returned to ask forgiveness and reclaim what is rightfully hers. Nora knows her father won’t forgive her easily, but the entire Amish community finds itself caught up in the secrets of the past and dealing with today’s unforgiveness.

Nora’s family drama might be as judgemental as it was sixteen years ago, but

First of all thank you to Goddess Fish for providing us with a copy of this book so that we can bring you this review.

I will admit that I was a bit leery about reading an Amish romance, though I have read them before, I knew exactly who the writer was and had been able to read other works for them in the past. With this one Charlotte Hubbard is completely new to me and I’d never read anything by her before. Also I haven’t read the previous books that are part of this series so I

When it comes to Charlotte Hubbard's books, they always hold a special place in my heart. They were amongst the first Amish books I ever read, and this series has always been a favorite of mine. I have said that Charlotte is my favorite Amish author, and she is. In fact, she is quickly becoming one of my top ten authors of all time. I always think her books can't get any better, and then she surprises me. In this book, I believe she has truly "come into her own" and written such a perfect book ...more

Have you ever read a series of books filled with fictional characters set in a fictional town and felt like you were among some of your closest friends every time you opened another book? Well, that's how I feel about Harvest of Blessings and the rest of Charlotte Hubbard's Seasons of the Heart series.

We've been through many of life's ups and downs together in Willow Ridge. There are the characters who have been present since the beginning. One of those is Miriam, who seems to be the heart of

I knew he’d be back again!

Hiram Knepp might have moved away, with big plans to start a new Amish “colony” – but he just can’t stop sticking his big nose into the happenings in Willow Ridge.

When Nora Glick buys Hiram’s abandoned property in Willow Ridge, he starts getting into her business, too. Poor Nora has a pretty rough time; her father refuses to acknowledge her, her neighbors are always catching her off guard, and Hiram keeps showing up – even coming into her house and trying to buy back

What a wonderful addition this is to the Season of the Heart series by Charlotte Hubbard. I've loved this series from the start, and Harvest of Blessings reaffirms everything I enjoy about Hubbard's work. Faith, forgiveness, and love play roles in Harvest of Blessings. Hubbard has created an engaging cast of characters who depend upon their faith even when they remain unsure of the future. We see the joy of a mother at the return of her daughter. We see a strict father set in his ways. We see a ...more

Harvest of Blessings is the fifth book in the Seasons Of The Heart series by Charlotte Hubbard.

If you love Amish romance with a little bit of a soap opera touch, you'll love this book. I absolutely loved this book and it was very much like a soap opera.

Nora gave up her child when she was sixteen, her father turning his back on her and keeping her from her family. Sixteen years later, she comes home and wants to reconnect.

This was another strong installment in this 'Seasons of the Heart' series by Charlotte Hubbard.

This story includes two really nasty villains, several sweet romances, and a glimpse into a new start-up business in this small Missouri community of Old Order Amish and Mennonite families. The author has generously included several Amish recipes mentioned in the story. {The 'Five-Grain Quick Bread' and 'Whole Grain Pancake Mix' in particular caught my eye.}

When prodigal daughter Nora Glick Landwehr returns home to her small town of Willow Ridge, she has the best intention to help her community, however with her flashy red car and her English ways, Nora knew acceptance and forgiveness that she was seeking was going to be difficult from the community, especially her father.

I am always excited to begin a new book. I was anxious to start “Harvest of Blessings” by Charlotte Hubbard. I began reading and although the book is very interesting and well written, I felt as if I were missing something. There were so many references to characters that were obviously mentioned in previous books that it was hard to figure out relationships. Even after finishing the book, I am still in the dark over many characters. However, given that difficulty in reading the book, I ...more

I should have followed the advice of other reviewers and read the other books in the series first. I didn't realize at first that I was coming in to the end of a series. I think it would have meant more had I read the others beforehand. The overall theme of faith and forgiveness is one I can appreciate, and anything set in Missouri gets points from me, as a native myself.

I liked the characters Charlotte Hubbard created, and I admire the courage it took for Nora to reconnect with her family after

Number 5 in the Willow Ridge series, this book introduces a character that existed but wasn't mentioned in the prior books. Okay, I'll tell you it's about a daughter who was sent away, never mentioned, and then returned to Willow Ridge. This book also introduces more information about the neighboring Mennonite community that interacts with the Amish community. I enjoyed seeing the contrasts and comparisons, as well as seeing a couple of eligible bachelors making commitments!

I have read all of Charlotte Hubbard's Seasons of the Heart books. In my opinion they keep getting better and better.

If you enjoy romance, there is plenty of it in this story. (Sigh!) I was rooting for Luke and Nora.

Then there is that pesky Hiram Knepp stirring up trouble again. How I really dislike that man.

Perhaps we all can relate to the unforgiveness of a heart or two. Can and will God change these hearts?

This is a book you don't want to miss. I simply loved it!
