Winter Reads: Seeds of Hope

Gilead Publishing; 270 pages; Buy Link; Blog Tour
Now available from Gilead Publishing is the Amish-romance Seeds of Hope, book one in the Harvest of Hope Series, by Barbara Cameron.

The novel centers on an Amish woman named Miriam Troyer, who receives a blast from the past when her childhood crush, Mark, returns to the Amish community.

Mark isn't Amish, but instead he was raised an Englischer, but spent his summers on his grandfather's farm in Paradise, Pennsylvania. After losing his job as lawyer, he finds himself traveling back to Paradise to help his family's farm with the harvest, which is more of a way for him to distract his mind of his recent failures. He keeps telling himself that's he's only just visiting and not planning on staying, well, that is until he meets and old friend - Miriam.

Final Thoughts

I'm a sucker for Amish-romances, which easily explains why I wanted to read Seeds of Hope to being with. While I can't recall a single title by Barbara Cameron, I'm pretty sure I've read a few of her other titles. That beings said and done with, let's get to my thoughts on this book.

I was intrigued by the author's writing style after reading the first paragraph, which features the character Miriam glancing at the Amish landscape. The descriptions of the land is beautifully written, and I'm glad to say that the entire novel is written in the same manner. The main characters, Miriam and Mark, are very likeable, which is also a plus in my eyes when reading any book.

Overall, I loved reading Seeds of Hope. It's a wonderfully written Amish romance that I recommend to other readers.
