"Reading Planted with Hope by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore is a delightful, poignant, and satisfying experience! There are no characters in this novel; only dear friends whose lives are unfolding before you. Each friend is developed so well that you feel their pain and cheer at their triumphs."
"Planted with Hope is the delightful second installment in the Pinecraft Pie Shop series by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore. Tricia and Sherry make a great team as they combine their individual talents and strengths to write this series. The unique Amish setting of Pinecraft, combined with the interesting history of World War II victory gardens, provide an enjoyable backdrop for this story of hope and love."
"'Hope' as a person and 'hope' as a feeling, lend many twists and turns to the plot of this book. I love how Hope struggles with her many emotions and how the hope of finding new happiness, play out in this book.

Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5Planted with HopeJune 9, 2016Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3PLANTED WITH HOPE is the second book in Ms. Goyers and Ms. Gore's The Pinecraft Pie Shop series, but it easily stands alone. Fans will want to read about the beginning of the pie shop in the first book, Made With Love.
I can't say I was really a fan of this book. There is zero sexual tension between the hero and the heroine. He is still mourning his deceased wife, but his daughter needs a mother, and Hope seems the perfect candidate because she loves Emma. Hope wants a garden where she can be alone and she is a bit selfish in not wanting to share her space especially when everyone makes it clear they want her to head up a community garden. I wanted to like these characters, but they were flat. There were more developed characters in the WWII journal that was loaned to Hope.
Not up to the first book in the series standards, but there are some interesting recipes in the book as well as gardening tips and tidbits of history. Fans of Amish fiction, Ms. Gore's recipes, or Ms. Goyer's WWII books might be interested in this book.
MaryAnnORAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Gardening with the AmishMay 11, 2016MaryAnnORAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This second book in the authors' Pinecraft series features Hope Miller, who loves to garden. The family's move to Florida for her father's health has squelched her gardening opportunities and crushed her identity. Her sister Lovina's pie shop has a spot behind the building that would make a good community garden. Hope is offered the leadership to develop it, but her idea of a private sanctuary may not be what others or God have in mind. The new Amish schoolteacher, Jonas Sutter, also wants to get involved--with both the garden and the gardener. How can everything possibly work out to the satisfaction of all? Entwined with the compelling plot are an old journal entries from World War II recorded in a book loaned to Hope by an elderly woman. These insightful passages may have a life-changing impact if she allows them. In addition to a rich story, wonderful recipes are tucked between chapters. I do wish there was an index of them all for easy reference. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

You will once again read of familiar characters from book one as well as meeting some new ones. You will find characters that bring history to the storyline while developing a new story all their own. Adventure and romance will weave their way through the story keeping you turning the pages for the next twist in the story. This was a very enjoyable story, yet I was disappointed in the number of missed edits.
PamW5 Stars Out Of 5Loved this book!March 30, 2016PamWQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Planted With Hope is the second installment in the Pinecraft Pie Shop series by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore. This was the first book I had read in the series, but it wont be the last! This book is a story of friendship, faith, and love that will keep readers coming back for more.
Hope Miller has recently moved to Pinecraft, Florida from Ohio, where she was known as a wonderful gardener. All Hope longs for is a garden of her own, and a place to find some peace and quiet away from the busyness of life. When her sister offers to let her grow a garden in the plot behind her pie shop, Hope thinks this might be exactly what she is looking for. When the local schoolteacher, Jonas Sutter, asks her if the local schoolchildren might be allowed to help with the gardening, Hope wrestles with the idea of sharing her retreat with so many others. Her reluctance is complicated by her growing feelings for Jonas and his daughter, Emma. Hope comes to realize that sometimes God provides blessings through unanswered prayers, and gives us what we didnt even know we needed.
Planted With Hope is a delightful story, and the many recipes included at the end of the chapters are an added bonus (I cant wait to try the recipe for Luscious Lemonade Pie!). I highly recommend this book. I received a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
Rhonda Nash-hallMadison Heights VAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Top Notch bookMarch 19, 2016Rhonda Nash-hallMadison Heights VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As Hope stood, she looked down at herself and heat rose to her cheeks. She was thankful that the boat ramp sloped downward so no one could see her from the park.
She was a dripping mess. Her dress and apron clung to her. She crossed her arms over her chest, unsure of what to do. Unsure of how she was going to get home. The park was full of people and she'd have to walk right through the middle of them to get out of the park.
I've wanted to travel to Pinecraft, Florida to see the Amish/Mennonite community there for quite some time and this book was so wonderfully descriptive that I felt like I was actually there. I could feel the sun on my face, but thankfully, the humidity didn't make it through the pages. Because I have been to other parts of Florida in the summer months several times, and the heat plus the humidity actually felt like a slap in the face. Hope Miller and her Amish family are living there without the comfort of air-conditioning. Jonas Sutter brings his young daughter, Emma, there, to accept the job as substitute school teacher and hopeful that the sunshine and fresh air will help his daughter to get over her grief at losing her mother. When Hope and Jonas begin working together on the garden behind the Me, Myself, and Pie Shop, Emma loves being Hope's helper. But Hope does not want the entire community in her space. She wants peace and quiet.
When an old gardening journal is shared with Hope, God begins to work on her heart. The recipes in the journal become new menu items for she and her sisters to add to the family dinners on their night to cook, but the journal does a great deal more than that. She learns about the time during World War II when the Pinecraft community united to create a Victory Garden. Will the garden drive Hope away from Jonas and her community? Will she allow others to share in her joy or lock them out? Will she decide to stay in Pinecraft or go back to Ohio where her heart belongs?
I loved reading about the impact of the Victory Garden on the Pinecraft community as I taught my former sixth grade students about them when we read some literature that included them. I also loved using gardening and plants to teach science and math as a public school teacher, so I personally saw great potential for Hope and Jonas to include the school children in the process of gardening. This book truly offers hope to the characters and to readers who apply its truths. Amish proverbs and recipes included with each chapter of the novel.
I had to give this book 5 stars because there are no higher star ratings available. It is THAT GOOD!
