"Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God"
Corrie Ten Boom
Sylvia Fisher is betrayed by her boyfriend and her sister. Feeling trapped and unable to remain on the Fisher family dairy farm, Sylvia gets a job on the Blank dairy farm in Dry Lake. The Blank farm has been sorely neglected and needs a lot of work before it can get out of debt, let alone turn a profit. Sylvia has a plan to turn things around and is determined to accomplish it. After Sylvia has worked for the Blanks a few months, she meets prodigal son, recovering alcoholic, Aaron Blank, and they don't see eye to eye, but they do go toe to toe. Besides Aaron, Sylvia has another problem. Sylvia is consumed with guilt from her past and needs forgiveness. God has already given it, but can Sylvia accept it? Can she offer it to her sister and ex-boyfriend?
Aaron Blank is a man with a plan. He hates the farm and has devised a plan to sell it and move his parents to the hardware store Aaron plans to buy in Owls Perch. He sees the farm as a reason he became dependant on alcohol and he hates it. He's determined to help get the farm to a state where it could be sold and he has 10 weeks to do it. Will his plan destroy Sylvia? Can Sylvia make him see the farm the way she does? When Aaron suddenly disappears, will his family look for him or will they think he has abandoned them again and returned to alcohol?
Ephraim's love continues to break down the walls Cara has built around herself. Cara's father, Trevor, is back in her life and she needs to truly forgive him, not just say the words but mean them too, or she won't be able to join the Amish church and marry Ephraim in the fall. Will she be able to finally let go of the anger and resentment that she has harbored over the past 20 years? Can she let go of the past and see who her father is today?
The Harvest of Grace is the third book in the Ada's House series. It could be read as a stand alone as the relationships between the characters and back story are touched on throughout the book. I would love for this series to go on and on forever, Cindy makes the people in this book come alive. Cindy I Woodsmall has written a truly magnificent story and kept me wondering if I was going to get the happy ending I was longing for.
You'll have to read it in order to find out if I did or not.
