Harvest of Grace by Cindy Woodsmall is actually the third book in a trilogy. Because I did not realize this fact and began without reading A Hope of Refuge and The Bridge of Peace, I was a little confused in the beginning. However, the author makes it easy to get caught up with the characters. These characters are successfully interwoven throughout the book. I would have liked to read the first two books and unravel the characters without knowing how they turn out. My fault for not paying attention 🙂
I have read numerous Amish fiction. This book provides an unexpected betrayal that completely shocked me. Grace and forgiveness is the overall theme of the story. It is always heart-warming to experience the community of the Amish.
I received a complimentary copy of this book through the Waterbrook Multnomah Blogging for Books blogger program in exchange for a review. I am not required to provide a positive review, and all opinions are my own.
