Book Review- Seeds of Hope by Barbara Cameron-A Litfuse Tour

Seeds of Hope

About the book 
Seeds of Hope (Gilead, November 2017)
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.
What others are saying 
Ms. Cameron does a wonderful job of comparing the two life styles during the course of the novel.
I find it interesting when an Amish novel contains a blend of the Plain life and Englisch living. In Seeds of Hope, author Barbara Cameron set up a good contrast between the two.

Seeds of Hope is a sweet story of deep and lasting love – between family, between friends, and between neighbors.  I love the way that Cameron portrays the relationships between this Amish community in Paradise, Pennsylvania.
I LOVE how the book really brings the 2 worlds together and although hesitant at first, doors open and hearts change for Mark who never imagined himself loving the Amish farmlife. I really enjoyed Seeds of Hope and seeing the twists and turns in the book. The book was a constant page turner, very hard to put down!

And I thought 

Hope.  Everyone needs to Hope.  Seeds of Hope is a story that makes you realize that you can Hope.  

A super fast read.  A page turner.  The author does a great job 
of bringing the Amish and the Englisch worlds together. 

It was a bit of a ride.  There were some twists and turns that keep you turning the pages to the end. 

This was a heart warming story.   

If your a fan of reading Amish stories you will not be disappointed.

I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse.
