Today I am reviewing Seeds of Hope, the first book in the Harvest of Hope series by Barbara Cameron.
Here is a brief synopsis:
They live in completely different worlds. Can love bring them together?
Miriam Troyer has had a secret crush on Mark Byler since they were teenagers. She knows they can never have a relationship:
Mark is a big-city attorney—an Englischer—and Miriam loves her quiet way of life in her Amish community. But when Mark unexpectedly shows up in Paradise, Pennsylvania, Miriam realizes it’s going to get a lot harder to hide her feelings.
Even though Mark always loved visiting his grandfather’s farm as a boy, he’s convinced the Amish life is not for him.
But when he suddenly finds himself out of a job and without direction, Mark heads back to the farm just in time to help with the harvest. Coming for a visit and coming to stay, however, are two very different things.
Everything changes when Mark sees that Miriam, the girl he remembers from his youth, has grown into the kind of faith-filled woman he wants in his future. Could life in this simple world be right for Mark after all? Has Miriam finally found her happily ever after? True love sprouts from seeds of hope.
Seeds of Hope is a lovely story. . . and the title is perfect. Seeds of hope are planted in more than one home—one life. Barbara Cameron has been a favorite author of mine for many years and she exceeded my expectations with Seeds of Hope.
I enjoyed getting to know Miriam Troyer and Mark Byler. Their friendship is a very special one.. . one that, if given the chance, could grow into something much more. Will they get the opportunity, or will their different beliefs always keep them apart? Read Seeds of Hope to find out…
I hope the story blesses you as much as it did me.
