About the Author
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 hearth and home. Faith and family, farming and food preservation are hallmarks of her lifestyle, and the foundation of her earlier "Angels of Mercy" series. She s a deacon, a dedicated church musician and choir member, and when she s not writing, she loves to try new recipes, crochet, and sew. Charlotte now lives in Minnesota with her husband and their border collie." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I really enjoyed this one especially the way the crafts was described made me want to see photos of the different crafts especially quilt & sewing ones
The story was a good one which mainly focus on Nora & i seen she will be coming in a spin off book called Simple Gifts
I am looking forward to the next book in this series the whole series is very good & can highly recommend it but do read in order
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!
Forgiveness from her father is not easy to get, although she does well with mom, sister in law, and her daughter (who had no idea Nora was her biological mother).
So many things happen for the good, even though it is a rocky road. I was very thrilled to read this book and read it straight through...could not put it down. Definitely a must read!
I liked the characters Charlotte Hubbard created, and I admire the courage it took for Nora to reconnect with her family after so much time had passed. It was easy to root for her to find her happy ending.
If you enjoy Amish fiction, I would check out this series.
