Another Great Story from Cindy Woodsmall
I think Cindy Woodsmall might just be my favorite new fiction author. After her "Sisters of the Quilt" Series I had to read another one of her books. I didn't realize "The Harvest of Grace" was #3 in the Ada's House book series so now I have to read the 1st two. I just downloaded Book #1 in this series. The eBook of Cindy’s first book in the Ada’s House series, "The Hope of Refuge," is specially priced at only $1.99 for a limited time! That's a steal I couldn't pass up!

I love Cindy's characters in this story. Cara and her daughter escaped a stalker and is now living amongst the Amish community. She is learning the language and going to classes so she can marry the love of her life. She in confronted with her father, who was never around growing up because his next drink was always more important. Then there's Sylvia who wasn't yet ready to say yes when her "beau" asked her to marry him. The next day he had asked her little sister instead. She is a strong female and could run a dairy farm on her own if she had to. After her and her ex had a confrontation in the barn, she had to get away. Her dad eventually let her leave to work on another farm where they had no children. Then we have Lena, with a birthmark on half of her face she probably never thought she would find her true love. But boy did he ever! She got quite a catch! Grey is a widower and to respect his dead wife's parents, he and Lena had to hide their affection for each other from the public. Only their closest friends/family new about their love for each other. Grey's dead wife's only brother returns home after completing rehab to offer his family a different lifestyle than farming. You would think Aaron's parents would be happy to see him, but there was a lot of anger there. So many relationships and all the struggles that come with them. They learn to rely on God. They realize they have to let go of pride and let God restore them. A lot of things happening in this story and everything works out. I love happy endings. Thank you again Cindy Woodsmall!
