I am always excited to begin a new book and was even more anxious to start “Harvest of Blessings” by Charlotte Hubbard. I began reading and although the book is very interesting and well written, I felt as if I were missing something. There were so many references to characters that were obviously mentioned in previous books that it was hard to figure out relationships. Even after finishing the book, I am still in the dark over many characters. However, given that difficulty in reading the book, I still genuinely liked the storyline and was taken in by the main characters and their lives.
I recommend this book highly, but would suggest that the previous books in the series be read first.
Harvest Of Blessings
The tranquil little town of Willow Ridge is facing a startling challenge. Wealthy Nora Glick Landwehr is determined to make it her home again--and put her past to rest. Cast out by her own family, Nora can't reconcile with Old Amish ways or her strict father. But she'll do anything to help her community embrace the future . . . and make amends to the daughter she had to give up. So, she certainly has no time for her reckless new neighbor Luke Hooley. They disagree about almost everything. And how can she trust him if he always seems to believe the worst about her? Somehow, though, his unexpected support and passionate heart are helping her find her own way in faith. And Nora will discover that even in the face of insidious lies and unyielding judgment, God creates unexpected chances for forgiveness--and love.
