The Harvest of Grace by Cindy Woodsmall

Description of 'The Harvest of Grace' from CBD:

"When Sylvia Fischer turned down her beau's offer of marriage, she expected him to give her the time and space she'd requested, believing they would eventually wed. Instead he married her sister. When she learns that his betrayal was her father's idea--a proposition made to save the farm--she knows she'll never trust another man.
Despite the secrets hiding in Aaron Blank's youth, he thinks he's ready to face his future. As he sets out to make up for the wrongs he's done to his family, he meets Sylvia, the new farmhand from a nearby district. She doesn't want him around, seems to have his father's heart in the palm of her hand--and what she knows could ruin his future."

I love Cindy Woodsmall's "Ada's House" series.  They are wonderful books!  'The Harvest of Grace' is the 3rd book in the series ('The Bridge of Peace' was #2, see my review here).  These books are very well-written with love stories, drama, conflict, and pretty much everything you'd expect in a real-life story, but these things are all packed into Cndy Woodsmall's novels.  

In 'The Harvest of Grace' Sylvia wants to be able to run the farm that she loves, but can't do that because of her gender.  In the beginning of the book, her boyfriend asks her to marry him and she asks him to wait.  He marries her sister, which crushes her completely.  She lives on the same farm with them trying to be the best she can but one day something happens between them and she knows she has to leave her family farm.  Many things happen after this, many conflicts and many resolutions.  

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to read fiction.  I loved it!
