Book Review: The Harvest of Grace

The Harvest of Grace is the third book in the Ada’s House series by Cindy Woodsmall.

I took a chance on reading it without having read the first two, and easily caught up on the important story points with the handy summary in the front of the book.

This was a very enjoyable read (if you like the Amish setting, I suppose), and I would definitely be interested in reading more of Ms. Woodsmall’s work.

Unlike many of the “Amish Romance” stories, this had a rather complex plot, intertwining several stories which had been developing through the entire trilogy. She also addressed some tough issues – alcoholism, congenital birth defects, violent death, infidelity – which are often absent from the strictly “feel good” reads.

The message of Salvation and Redemption was clear, but not suffocating. And there was, as you might guess from the title, a strong theme of Grace – from God, as well as from our fellow man, and the need to give it.

Definitely a series worth reading if this genre is something you’d enjoy. I’d go ahead and start at the beginning, and enjoy all three!
