The Harvest of Grace An Ada's House Novel Book Review

The Harvest of Grace: Book 3 in the Ada's House Amish Romance Series (An Ada's House Novel)

Feel free to rate this review!

My Review:

It is a fact I like the Amish way of life.  I love the simplicity and the love of a huge family.
When I see an Amish book, I'm drawn at learning a little more about their closed livelihood.

This book was not the same as most Amish books.  It had more of a soap opera tale to it.  A sister longing for her sibling's beau.  Alcohol taking over someone's life and rehab.  Anger and forgiveness.  Debt and it almost ruining the life of so many.

Not the typical Amish fiction reading material.  However, the ending was very expected.  I would have wanted a little more suspense to call this a good read.

The book was not one of my favorite fiction Amish books.  It at sometimes was hard to follow.  It was almost like the author forgot to finish the thoughts she created.

This is not a book for the younger eyes.  It deals with certain "adult only" issues.

I also would have liked the reference to the Glossary to be put in front of the book.  I had no idea it was back there until I had finished reading the book.

Having said all that - I would still like to read Cindy Woodsmall in the future!  She still can put a lifestyle into words that some would never see.

Blessings to you!  You are loved!
