The Harvest of Grace by Cindy Woodsmall
Book blurb from goodreads.com : Although Sylvia Fisher recognizes that most Old Order Amish women her age spend their hours managing their households and raising babies, she has just one focus -- tending and nurturing the herd on her family's farm. But when a dangerous connection with an old beau causes her to move far from home, she decides to concentrate on a new start and pour her energy into reviving another family's debt-ridden farm.
After months in rehab, Aaron Blank returns home to sell his Daed's failing farm and move his parents into an easier life style. Two things stand in his way: the father who stubbornly refuses to recognize that Aaron has changed, and the determined new farm hand his parents love like a daughter. Her influence on Aaron's parents could ruin his plans to escape the burdens of farming and build a new life.
Can Aaron and Sylvia find common ground? Or will their unflinching efforts toward opposite goals blur the bigger picture -- a path to forgiveness, glimpses of grace, and the promise of love.
**The Harvest of Grace is coming out on September 6, 2011!**
What I like about the cover: Well, I do love her purple dress, and the black apron is neat too. Then the pink sky, while not entirely accurate, makes a pretty compliment to her black hair and white cap. And then I like the farm scene in the background. Red barn, black cows, and the hay closer up. It's a beautiful cover!
