Book Review- The Harvest of Grace

The Harvest of Grace- Written by Cindy Woodsmall

The Story:
Taken from the back of the book: "Reeling from an unexpected betrayal Sylvia makes a painful mistake that forces her to seek work far from her family.  Can she find relief from the echoes of her past or will they shape her future forever"
"After months of rehab, Aaron Blank returns home to sell his dad's failing farm and move his parents into an easier lifestyle.  Two things stand in his way: the father who stubbornly refuses to recognize that Aaron has changed and the determined new farmhand his parents love like a daughter."

My Thoughts:  
I really enjoyed this book the characters where very dynamic they keep the store interesting.  Set in an Amish community who would have expected to find a girl farmhand on a dairy farm, or a Son struggling with addiction.  I was glad to see this is a book out of a series of stories and really want to read the other books in the Ada's House series. 
I really felt a connection with Sylvia, I felt the author did a good job of sharing her feelings and helping the reader to understand the struggle that Sylvia faced.  This book was a good read I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and give it 5 out of 5 stars.

I was provided a copy of this book for review purposes from WaterBrook Press.  All opinions in this review however are my own and are not influenced by the company.


  1. This looks like a great book and I love how you write your reviews. They are short and to the point but also provide enough info so I know if I do or do not want to read it. Great job!

  2. This isn't my type of book but I do love the cover!

  3. I've read a few books about the Amish community and to my surprise they were really good. Sounds like an interesting read!

  4. I always enjoy books that provide me a peek into the lives of others, especially those whose lifestyles and experiences are so different from my own. While the Sylvia's struggle is unique in some aspects, I'm sure the bottom line is very similar to what many experience. Thank you for the introduction.
