Book Review, “The Harvest Of Grace,” Cindy Woodsmall, Author

The Harvest of Grace, by Cindy Woodsmall, is the third book in the Ada’s House series.  A marvelous book, it is a must read for anyone enjoying Amish fiction.

Sylvia Fisher is in a unique position for an Amish woman. She actually owns a portion of her family’s dairy farm, a job which she adores and is skilled at.  But when her
sister and boyfriend betray her and marry, she is hurt and emotionally distraught at having to face them both daily. She ends up moving to the Blank farm two hours away and in desperate need of help.  When Aaron Blank returns from rehab, he wants to close the struggling farm and move his parents to town.  Sylvia, however, stands in his way.

I very much enjoyed this story. Not having read the previous two books in the series, I appreciated the summary of them at the beginning of the book. The list of characters and glossary of terms at the back of the book were also quite helpful.

I thought the story skillfully addressed several issues, such as women’s roles in the Amish culture and families attempts to forgive members recovering from addictions.  It was a wunderbaar book!
