Do you remember the song that starts out, “Grace, grace, God’s grace. Grace that will pardon and cleanse within..”. This book reminds me of that song. The main characters in this book are all in need of grace or need to extend grace to others (just like real life). The drama unfolds as the people in the story deal with finding the grace they need to live their lives.

Intertwined Lives in Need of Giving and Receiving Grace
The Harvest of Grace, An Ada’s House Novel by Cindy Woodsmall
The is the third book in the Ada’s House set of novels. I have not read the first two, but I will. The Harvest of Grace is engaging; the story and characters grab ahold and you want to know that everything will work out for them, even if it’s not as they planned.
I usually shy away from Amish themed books because of the time warp sense that I get from reading them, but I didn’t have that problem with this story. The only issue I had was keeping the characters straight at the beginning. There are several characters that all interact and not having read The Hope of Refuge and The Bridge of Peace, the first two novels in the set, in which most of the characters are introduced, I got a little confused. But there is a handy-dandy list of main characters at the back, which was very helpful! The back story of each character is given so you won’t be at a loss reading the current novel. All in all, a great story and I would definitely recommend picking up a copy.
