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. ...more

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 eas

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 yea

"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 experience ...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 consid ...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

Sixteen years ago, Nora was banished by her strict Amish father, and she abandoned her newborn daughter and joined the English world. Now, divorced and seeking reconciliation with her family, she returns home. Her reappearance sends shock waves through the small Amish community, and though her mother has welcomed her back, her father has not. This novel explores many of the problems Nora experienced as a young Amish teenager sorely used, her homelessness at being expelled from her home, her vent ...more

I wasn't so sure I much liked Luke Hooley when he was introduced to the series a few books back, but he really grew on me in this book. Granted, there were a few moments when I just wanted to shake some sense into him, but he did eventually figure out which way was up, and that he was ready to commit to following the Lord all his life.
But, for me, Nora was definitely the star. I loved how she took a chance, at God's leading (though I'm not sure she realised that it was His leading until later on

This book had a very powerful demonstration of how God can give a personthe strength he needs to forgive someone. The things that stuck out to me were weird, but here goes. There was a temporary shunning in a previous book and the guy left instead of repenting. In this book, however, the man in question repented and chose to forgive. Very well done!

I don't want these stories to end. I feel like I am living there with them. How I would love to sit and chat with them. Be counseled by their preachers and surrounded by the women. I can't find the words to explain how much I enjoyed these stories.

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 wa

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 i ...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 th

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 th

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
