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.
Drawing upon her experiences in Jamesport, the largest Old Order Amish community west of the Mississippi, longtime Missourian Charlotte Hubbard writes of simpler times and a faith-based lifestyle in her new Seasons of the Heart series.  Like her heroine, Miriam Lantz, Charlotte considers it her personal mission to feed people—to share ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Second Chance Amish Romance Reminding us that “home is where the heart is”, Charlotte Hubbard takes us on a journey back to Willow Ridge in Harvest of Blessings, the fifth installment in her Seasons of the Heart series. Filled with beloved characters, a prodigal daughter returning home after years away, and showcasing God’s command to forgive and love each other, Ms. Hubbard’s story will grab your attention from beginning to end. While this book can stand on its own, I recommend reading the entire series in order; both for reading enjoyment and for getting to know the inhabitants of this little town. After living among the “English” for sixteen years, Nora Glick Landwehr has decided to return to her childhood home in Willow Ridge. Determined to ask for her parent’s forgiveness, connect with the daughter she’s never known, and establish a gift store selling Amish and Mennonite wares, Nora purchases a prime piece of real-estate and moves in. While not looking for a second chance at love, Nora can’t help being attracted to one of her neighbors, Luke Hooley, and has to decide if she’s willing to risk her heart. Ms. Hubbard does a good job developing Nora’s character and I easily connected with her right away. An outwardly beautiful woman, Nora also has a lovely soul and once you get to know her story, why she had to leave her daughter behind, you can’t help rooting for her to reconnect with her family and take a chance on love. A member of the Willow Ridge community for over a year, Luke Hooley still can’t make up his mind about officially joining the church. He also refused to get serious about any of the young women in town and prefers “playing the field”. At least until he meets Nora Landwehr and becomes interested in getting to know her. The more Luke finds out about Nora, the more he’s intrigued. He even finds himself willing to visit a local Mennonite Church that Nora wants to join. Ms. Hubbard also does a good job developing Luke’s character and it was nice getting to know him better. He’s always been an interesting character and I knew there had to be more to him than the “player” he’s let others see. The secondary characters are well developed and Ms. Hubbard did a good job delivering message that love and forgiveness are forever entwined as a part of the “Golden Rule” – after all it’s impossible to truly love someone if you are not willing to forgive them. I especially enjoyed getting to see Mariam and Ben Hooley again, along with Tom and Nazareth Hostetler. And of course it wouldn’t be a book about Willow Ridge without having to deal with Hiriam Knepp, the church’s excommunicated preacher who won’t leave his old community alone. Will Nora and her parents learn to forgive each other and love each other as God expects? Will Nora and her daughter be able to connect and have a relationship? And will Nora and Luke give their budding love a chance to become the love of a lifetime? You’ll have to read Harvest of Blessings to find out. I can’t wait to see who Ms. Hubbard writes about next!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We Are Back We are back in Willow Ridge with our Amish/Mennonite families, at least that is how they feel to me, as we have come to know and love them through the pen of the Author Charlotte Hubbard. We open the book with Nora Glick Landwehr purchasing the home of Hiram Knepp, that beautiful home that he owned when he was the local Bishop. I could feel myself cringing, knowing the reputation of that man, but who is Nora? We are about to find out and I found myself walking in her shoes. She has not had an easy lot, and has made some bad choices, but a lot was put on her shoulders as a young girl. If you haven’t met Hiram before, please pick up the previous books in this series, you will not be disappointed, at least not in the books, but maybe in the man. We are putting closure on some of the previous stories, as we attend Annie Mae’s wedding, and spend time with Ben and Miriam. We are also around the twins, and catch up in their lives. This being Nora’s story, we meet her parents, and what a happening that will be. Such a transformation, and yet, there are answers here, and some that might help others. We are also meeting back with the Hooley brothers, Ira and Luke; they are about to open the mill. Now how would you feel if you finally meet your daughter and she is dating a man almost twice her age? I wouldn’t like it at all, but this is a different culture, or is it? Neither of the brothers has chosen to embrace their Amish faith, and is certainly beyond the age of doing so. You won’t be disappointed in this read, I sure wasn’t, just didn’t want it to end, come and immerse yourself in the Plain life, you will not want the story to end. I received this book through the Publisher Kensington, and was not required to give a positive review.
