Publisher's Summary

Reeling from an unexpected betrayal, can Sylvia find relief from the echoes of her past… or will they shape her future forever?

Although Sylvia Fisher recognizes that most Old Order Amish women her age spend their hours managing a household and raising babies, she has just one focus—tending and nurturing the herd on her family’s dairy farm. But when a dangerous connection with an old beau forces her to move far from home, she decides to concentrate on a new start and pour her energy into reviving another family’s debt-ridden farm.

After months in 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. Her influence on Aaron’s parents could ruin his plans to escape the burdens of farming and build a new life.

Can Aaron and Sylvia find common ground? Or will their unflinching efforts toward opposite goals blur the bigger picture—a path to forgiveness, glimpses of grace, and the promise of love.

these Amish stories

I don't knnow what it is about these stories with an Amish setting but I enjoy them, enjoy them a lot. They are like Hallmark Channel movies, just good, wholesome stories that make you feel good about life. Like a thriller, and this wasn't that, I buzzed through this book in two days!

Best of this 3-book series.

Any additional comments?

Good series. Reader sounded gravelly when trying to do men's voices. Enjoyed each book, liked the last one best, always love a good ending. Good characters, I think Aaron was my favorite, but also liked Ada and Lena and Sylvia. Liked Kara too of course, and Laurie. In the second book, the cat part was completely unnecessary. Dwayne's meanness could have been shown in other ways. Hate that cruelty and actually skipped over the details of it. Kara's dad's part could have been brought out a bit more, he seemed hard to get to know, but all ended well and that's the main thing :)

A bit sappy, ties together a little too neatly

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

As part of the series, it's a little too neat and tidy. This is OK for an Amish romance, but as a book itself, not sure i'd recommend it.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scene where Cara decides to take steps to forgive her father, despite feeling a bit of the anger

Do you think The Harvest of Grace needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

NO! This series ties up nicely, and a new book will make the series even moe sappy.

Any additional comments?

I like Cindy Woodsmall's writing and insight into the human condition, but the series as a whole - this book in particular - doesn't really have strong plot points that don't include emotional drama. "Sisters of the Quilt" had a much stronger series plot, and "Amish Vines and Orchards" appears to as well (I am only on book 2).<br/><br/>For Woodsmall, I know she can do better. For Cassandra Campbell, she did a good job with the material she has.
