Seeds of Hope (Harvest of Hope Book 1) by [Cameron, Barbara]

Seeds of Hope (Harvest of Hope Book 1) 



They live in completely different worlds. Can love bring them together?

Miriam Troyer has had a secret crush on Mark Byler since they were teenagers. She knows they can never have a relationship: Mark is a big-city attorney—an Englischer—and Miriam loves her quiet way of life in her Amish community. But when Mark unexpectedly shows up in Paradise, Pennsylvania, Miriam realizes it’s going to get a lot harder to hide her feelings.

Even though Mark always loved visiting his grandfather’s farm as a boy, he’s convinced the Amish life is not for him. But when he suddenly finds himself out of a job and without direction, Mark heads back to the farm just in time to help with the harvest. Coming for a visit and coming to stay, however, are two very different things. 

Everything changes when Mark sees that Miriam, the girl he remembers from his youth, has grown into the kind of faith-filled woman he wants in his future. Could life in this simple world be right for Mark after all? Has Miriam finally found her happily ever after? True love sprouts from seeds of hop

My Review:


Such great descriptions had me caught up in both the modern world and the old world of the Amish when the two worlds are brought together again in Seeds of Hope.  You have the fast paced world of Mark where so many only care about how everything affects them and then Miriam's slower paced world of making sure everyone is loved and taken care of.  

There were some great characters that come in and out in this book and that kept me turning the pages.  Grandpa in the end though just shined through for me. Now don't get me wrong,  I certainly felt sorry for the trails and hardships that Mark and Miriam were going through in their lives, but Grandpa stayed on top of my list.  It was funny how I couldn't wait to get to a part where he was back in the story.  I was always wanting to make sure someone gave him dinner and checked on him. His character was just lovable and people really listened to what he had to say. He knew just how to make people think about what was most important in their lives.  He also seemed to have everyone a little wrapped around his fingers!  Loved that.  

This book reminds me although hardships and trails happen in every one's life, in the end they can turn into something good.  Barbara Cameron leaves us with a ending that doesn't disappoint making Seeds of Hope a great read!
