About the Book:
The Hope of Refuge
Two very different women are pulled by their strongest desires. Deborah Mast joined the Amish church and longs to marry her fiancĂ©, but he is changing. Cara Moore is forced to look into a life that was meant to be hers. Will Ada’s House help them realize their hearts’ desires or will it force them to accept what life has done to each of them?

The Bridge of Peace
Living out her passion for teaching, Lena Kauffman’s work is suddenly interrupted by a series of pranks and accidents targeted toward her and her students. When tragedy strikes her dear friend Grey Graber’s family on school property, the school board begins to blame her for the trouble. As grief and confusion take their toll on Grey and Lena’s friendship, they are both forced to face a new reality that may offer the peace and love they each long for.

The Harvest of Grace
Fleeing a terrible mistake, Sylvia Fisher dedicates herself to saving the failing Blank farm. When prodigal son Aaron returns, he is surprised by this unusual farmhand who opposes all his plans. Will Aaron and Sylvia’s unflinching efforts toward opposite futures mask the bigger picture—a path to forgiveness, grace, and the promise of love?

This three-in-one collection includes the entirety of the best-selling Ada’s House trilogy, now at a new low price!

My Review:
The Hope of Refuge
 So much hope resting on so many changing lives and what will these ladies do about it? Hope and faith in God's grace will be all that can change their lives for the better.

The Bridge of Peace
  When Lena is faced with so much opposition from all four corners, how will she respond? Her and Grey's relationship is transformed by all the opposing forces that proves to be difficult for either of them to survive from. But soon they see something in each other that will change everything.

The Harvest of Grace
Taken from my previous review....
 This one centers around Sylvia and how she has a keen ship with animals. She takes care of them as if they were her babies. Elam Smoker is a young Amish man interested in Sylvia and when he asked her to marry him she decided she needed time to think about it. And then Elam did something unspeakable among sisters. And Sylvia felt betrayed. Then in walks Aaron Blank and things begin to change for Sylvia. I won't give away the ending but lets just say it gets better and better and by the time you become enthralled in the novel you won't want to put it down.

 Cindy Woodsmall has a cozy, down to earth feel that comes through in her writing. she is able to convey God's love and His ultimate grace in ways that many writers can not. I love reading her books, she has a lifelong fan in me!
