Seeds of Hope by Barbara Cameron Book Review and Giveaway

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:

I haven’t read any of Barbara Cameron books prior to this review. I look forward to exploring more of her titles in the future.

I’m a fan of the Amish genre. I love the simplicity of their life without the mayhem of this busy world. I love the wholesome plots. Most of them are pretty similar and that’s okay.

The characters are realistic and fun. I love the scriptures weaved throughout the story. The story does move a bit slow at times but that’s okay it was a nice and fulfilling read.

I liked Mark’s character in this story. He is a driven and successful up and coming lawyer. He also has a lot of compassion and a soft spot to help out his Amish grandfather. He enjoys his job and his life as a lawyer. His grandfather wants Mark to take over the family farm so it can stay in the family. When he is forced to take some time off he finds himself helping during harvest time at his grandfather’s farm. He reconnects to his neighbor friend Miriam.

Miriam is a sweet character with a bit of spunk. Her family is fun as they interact with one another. Miriam has had a huge crush on Mark for many years. She has taken care of Marks grandfather by bringing him food daily and continues to bring food when Mark is there.

The big question is can one of them leave behind the only life they have ever known. Mark grew up in the big city after his family left the Amish life behind and Miriam only knows the lifestyle of the Amish. You won’t get any spoilers from me so you are going to have to read it for yourself.
