Book Review: Harvest of Blessings by Charlotte Hubbard

Welcome back to Willow Ridge with the latest Seasons of the Heart novel, Harvest of Blessings.

Nora Glick Landwehr returns to Willow Ridge after many years away. Once cast out by her strict father, she seeks forgiveness and a chance to make amends to the daughter she gave up.

Luke Hooley doesn't hide his interest in her, but she doesn't have time for his recklessness. Somehow, though, he's helping her find her own way in faith.

Can Nora hope for a chance at forgiveness and love?

What a wonderful addition this is to the Season of the Heart series by Charlotte Hubbard. I've loved this series from the start, and Harvest of Blessings reaffirms everything I enjoy about Hubbard's work. Faith, forgiveness, and love play roles in Harvest of Blessings. Hubbard has created an engaging cast of characters who depend upon their faith even when they remain unsure of the future. We see the joy of a mother at the return of her daughter. We see a strict father set in his ways. We see a daughter searching for herself in the place she once called home. We see family members divided on this woman who has lived as an Englisher. We see members of the community working toward the common good. And if you thought that the former bishop, Hiriam Knepp was out of the picture, think again.

While I would definitely recommend starting this series at the beginning to fully appreciate it, Harvest of Blessings stands on its own. I am eager to see what comes next for the community of Willow Ridge.

Sounds like it may hit home with me. I have a daughter I have tried reconnecting with. Might be a very emotional read for me. Great review!
