Harvest of Grace by Cindy Woodsmall

Waterbrook Press publishers

Sylvia Fisher asked her boyfriend, Elam Smoker, for more time, when he asked her to marry him.  At 22, she wasn't sure she was ready to get married, and start a family right away.  A few weeks later, she is told that Becky, her younger sister, is getting married, and the man is Elam Smoker. She wanted to leave then, but, she wasn't allowed.  About 2 years later, Becky and Elam have twins, and Sylvia finds herself taking care of the family and the farm, while everyone but Elam is down with the flu.  She realizes she is still attracted to him, and knows she has to get away.
She finds a position on the dairy farm of Michael and Dora Blank, working to improve their milk production.  Little does she know that their son, Aaron, wants to buy an Amish store in a town a few miles away,  move his father and mother with him, and sell the farm.  When he arrives at the farm, he is shocked to find a young Amish woman working there, and that production is improving.  He tried several things to get her to go home, not knowing the situation with her family.

Will the Blanks sell the farm, and move in with Aaron? Where will Sylvia go?  The attraction that Sylvia and Aaron feel, will it blossom into love, or will they go their separate ways?

Cindy Woodsmall is a very talented writer, I will read everything she has written.  This book is a page turner, keeping you wondering what will happen on the next page.

I received this book from Waterbrook Press, to read and review.  No other compensation was given, all opinions expressed here are my own, I'm not required to give a favorable review.
