The Harvest of Grace

The Harvest of Grace: Book 3 in the Ada's House Amish Romance Series (An Ada's House Novel)The Harvest of Grace by Cindy Woodsmall is the third book in the Ada's House series. Sylvia fled her family farm after she nearly betrayed her sister, Beckie, to work on a farm in a new town. The Blank's farm seems to be her chance to start over. But when their son, Aaron, returns home from a stint in rehab, all her dreams are again in turmoil. Aaron has always just wanted to please his parents, a job that often seemed impossible so he turned to alcohol to escape the feelings of helplessness. Now he's returned home determined to get them out from under a failing farm and finally earn their respect. Sylvia and Aaron have opposite dreams, but their feelings for each other quickly complicate the situation further. Meanwhile, Cara is still trying to learn how to speak the Amish language so she can finally marry Ephraim, Lena and Grey continue to keep their romance under wraps, and Ada and Israel creep toward acknowledging their growing affection. Woodsmall is one of my favorite writers of Amish or bonnet lit. She does a wonderful job of introducing new characters while keeping old characters moving forward in their relationships. She has populated this series with a group of characters that readers will fall in love with. The epilogue gives the impression that Woodsmall has finished the series, but I hope she will reconsider and continue sharing the stories of Ada's House.

Thank you for WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for providing me with a copy of this book for review!
