Book Review: Harvest of Grace by Cindy Woodsmall

Sylvia, an Amish woman, is utterly betrayed by her sister and her intended at the start of this book. Honestly, I had tears in my eyes for her.  After years of trying to deal to suppress her emotions at home, she leaves to help on the Blank farm, where the son, Aaron, has been for a while absent after going to rehab for alcoholism.

I really enjoyed this book.  I got drawn into the plot right away.  However, it is the third in a series. Since I'd not read the first two books, I got thrown for a loop when suddenly I was plunged into the middle of established stories with characters I'd not met previously. Woodsmall did provide a brief summary of the previous two books at the beginning, which I had to refer back to at least ten times before I was confident I understood exactly what was going on.

While that was a bit disconcerting, after I was caught up I felt all the storylines were gripping. I became just as curious to see how each one would climax by the end of the book as I had with the main storyline of Sylvia and Aaron.  All in all, Woodsmall is a talented author and I'd like to read more of her books.

I received the book free from the publishers in exchange for my unbiased review.
