Seeds of Hope Book Review

I was excited to get to read another book by this author because I have enjoyed her books.  I didn't know a lot about the book or the series but was excited to find out.  Seeds of Hope (Harvest of Hope) by Barbara Cameron was next in my reading pile so I was excited to get back to some Amish fiction after not having read many recently.

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.

Miriam is very into her family and being a school teacher which she works really hard to help with her brothers and sisters as well as teaching them constantly.  She has been friends for years with Mark who is not only English but a lawyer from a big city.  He comes to this small Amish community to visit his grandfather every summer and they became fast friends.  Miriam has been fighting a crush on him for a very long time when he shows back up in her small town.  She knows that he is going to go back to his fast paced lifestyle and leave farming and her behind but she still spends lots of time with her friend.  Their lives are so different but they are both drawn to spend more time together until Miriam says no!!  There are a lot of ups and downs in this book but you have to pick it up to find out what happens for yourself.  I hope that you enjoy this book as much as I have. It was a great read with wonderful characters and great writing.  I enjoyed the back and forth relationship between Mark and Miriam as well as how outspoken Miriam is throughout the book.  I hope that you enjoy these and other things about this great book when you read it!

**I was provided a copy of the book to read for my review but all opinions here are honest and my own.
