Seeds of Hope (Harvest of Hope #1) by Barbara Cameron


Seeds of Hope (Gilead, November 2017)
A heartwarming tale of discovering love right in front of you
Miriam Troyer has had a secret crush on Mark Byler since she was a teenager, but she knows they can never have a relationship: Mark is a big-city attorney and an Englischer. Her Amish community is too far removed from all he knows–and she loves her quiet way of life.
Mark has always loved his visits to his grandfather’s farm, but he’s convinced the Amish life isn’t for him. There’s so much of the world to see and experience, and the excitement of his successful law practice can’t be matched by the slow pace of life found back home in the country.
But when things go wrong and his firm distances itself from him to try to save themselves, Mark finds himself back at his grandfather’s farm. Could life in this simple world be worth living after all? Especially when the teenager he remembers has grown into a woman that could be his future. Suddenly, these two people whose lives seem so far apart may get a chance to really see each other for the first time.

My Thoughts:

Seeds of Hope is the first book in the Harvest of Hope series by Barbara Cameron. Miriam Troyer has a huge crush on Mark Byler and has since they were teenagers. Miriam knew that a relationship would never happen between the two of them, but Mark returned home and all of a sudden he noticed Miriam in a different way. When Mark was offered the farm by his grandfather, was it luck or fate that Miriam would get a possible second shot with Mark? Would Mark want to be apart of the Englisch world or the Amish world? Will Mark be able to make it in the Amish world if he chooses to or will his career and skills keep him from life on the farm? The only way to know is to grab a copy yourself and start reading!

This is a great read! I enjoyed the pace of the book and the story line. I found the storyline to be real and the characters to be authentic. I love how the characters each struggle with different aspects of life and faith. I found this book to be enjoyable and was well written. Amish fans will truly enjoy this wonderful story! I give this book 4/5 stars. A favorable review was not required.
