Squeeeaaallll!!!! A new series by Ruth Logan Herne and it promises all of her trademark homegrown, faith-filled, toe-curling goodness. I love the way this author creates a community and develops multi-generational relationships that bring such depth and realism to her stories. I'm already enamored with Golden Grove and love the apple orchard family farm setting of this first novel.

Libby faces her challenges with backbone and spunk despite overwhelming odds. Jax is guarding a lot of secrets and

A Hopeful Harvest captured me from the beginning with Liberty (Libby) Creighton facing several challenges that are relevant in lives today. She had returned to the small town of Golden Grove to assist her elderly grandparents with their apple orchard. Her fortitude and faith to remain strong for her Alzheimer’s grandpa brought challenges, especially when devastation from a storm complicated how to harvest the bounty in the orchard. Jax McClaren appearance was unbelievable along with how well he ...more

I simply LOVED this story, set in the small town of Golden Grove, Washington.....a place where hearts are healed....by faith and love.

With a broken childhood and a hard marriage behind her, Libby Creighton returns to Golden Grove with her young daughter. Her grandmother’s last request was for Libby to return to the struggling family apple orchard and to care for Gramps who has Alzheimer’s.

Ex-soldier Jax McClaren is haunted by past events which have left him with guilt and regrets. As he follows

When I pick up a Ruth Logan Herne book, I know I’ll be in for a heartwarming, delicious read. A Hopeful Harvest fit right in with those expectations. The setting at an apple orchard and the cast of realistic, caring, and engaging characters set the tone for a delightful, uplifting story. Libby Creighton and Jax McClaren were both suffering from events in their pasts, and I was rooting for them to find healing and happiness. I loved Jax’s caring, compassionate tenderness with Libby and her ...more
