Publisher's Description

The third installment in the Healing Grace series finds young Amish widow Sarah Yoder facing her greatest challenge--herself.

Sarah Yoder hasn't seen Henry Byler since he became engaged to an Englisch woman, which is best for her peace of mind. Since Henry never joined the Amish church, any relationship but a neighborly one is impossible. So she stays busy with her family, welcoming her son back from the ranch he's been working on in Colorado, doing a little matchmaking for her sister-in-law, and making the teas and tinctures that heal the members of her church.

Then Henry seeks her out, desperate for a balm for his sensitive hands before his success as a potter is jeopardized, and Sarah must call on every ounce of strength to deny the cry of her heart. Yet there is Someone who just might have a special cure in mind-a healing balm with the power to change everything. But with Henry's wedding only weeks away, is it already too late?

Editorial Reviews

"Readers will be pleased and relieved when this intense romance is resolved."—RT Book Reviews
"Senft is a talented author and her research on various herbs is a welcome surprise to readers....This sweet romance has a believable storyline and a lot of heart."—RT Book Reviews on Herb of Grace
"[A] genuine must read for those who love Amish fiction. Readers will not be able to put this book down until finished, it is just that great and filled with rich characterization.... HERB OF GRACE is a five star recommended book."—AmishReader.blogspot.com on Herb of Grace
"With a complex mix of both younger and older characters and a complex story line, this book is truly a success."—Brodart Books & Library Services on Herb of Grace


"This relatable story, which launches Senft's Amish Quilt series, shows that while waiting to see God's plan can be difficult, remembering to put Jesus first, others next and yourself last ("JOY") is necessary."—Romantic Times on The Wounded Heart
"With this quaint, gentle read, Senft's promising series is off to a good start and will make a nice alternative for Jerry S. Eicher readers who want to try a new author."—Library Journal on The Wounded Heart
"Senft perfectly captures the Amish setting of the novel, causing me both to long for the simplicity and beauty of the Amish way, but also to ponder with puzzlement some of the decisions made by the Ordnung. Amelia is an endearing character, and there were a few laugh-out-loud moments for me that I wasn't even expecting. Although this is the first book I have read by the author, she has been added to my "must read" list. If you are a fan of Amish fiction, then plan on reading The Wounded Heart soon!"—Christian Fiction Addiction on The Wounded Heart
"I do declare Adina has saved the best story for last. I loved this book! Saying that it is a heartfelt story just doesn't seem like it does the book justice."—Destination Amish on The Tempted Soul

    Balm of Gilead is the third installment of the Healing Grace series. I really liked this book but not as much as the first two of the series. I do look forward to more by this author.

    Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? She carried the bowl of fragrant liquid into the kitchen and carefully poured lukewarm water into it to dilute it. When it was ready, she set it in front of Henry. "Soak your hands in this for fifteen minutes while we talk."

    Sarah and Henry seem destined to live separate lives as he has left the Amish and is now known as "Englisch Henry" to the community. Yet it is proving impossible for them to avoid each other as his farm and shop are directly beside her Amish home and now his hands are so painfully chapped and cracked that he is finding it difficult to work on his pottery without excruciating pain. He seeks Sarah out to see if she has a cure for his hands as she is learning to be a dokterfraa (female healer) and researchs to discover that the balm of Gilead is needed to make a healing salve for Henry. She seeks out her mentor to see if she has some of the ingredients for the salve as it is the wrong season for a key ingredient she requires. Henry is engaged to the Englisch owner of a local inn and Sarah strains to guard her heart against further heartache where Henry is concerned. How will she manage to do that when life seems to continue to throw them into each other's path?

    I have loved this series since reading book one. This series is full of grace, forgiveness, and love. This third in the series is a beautiful testament to the healing grace that God brings to the lives of His children. I can hardly wait now for the next book in the series to see which characters will be featured. I love that we see all the characters from the previous books and get to see what is going in on their lives as well. This book touches on the Amish reality shows that are currently so popular on television as well as Amish leaving the faith.

    I rate this novel 5 stars and highly recommend it to Amish fiction readers as well as those who enjoy Christian fiction.

    I received a kindle version of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.

    I really enjoyed reading this third installment in The Healing Grace series. I would recommend reading the first two books to know all the recurring characters but you can figure it out. I loved all the characters. These mainly follow Sarah Yoder and her trials but there are many other characters that you get to know and love. I received an ebook copy of this from netgalley for a fair and honest opinion.

    I just finished the third book in the Healing Grace series. It is the Balm of Gilead by Adina Senft. Sarah Yoder is a widow with two sons. Caleb is almost fifteen and has finished his schooling. Simon has spent the summer working on a dude ranch in Colorado. Sarah has been studying to be a Dokterfraa (herbal healer). Sarah cares for her neighbor, Henry Byler. Henry grew up Amish but left the community when he was eighteen. He returned to live in the house he inherited from an aunt and set up his pottery studio in the barn. Henry was lucky enough for his work to be noticed by D. W. Frith Company (or so he thinks).

    Henry has proposed to Ginny Hochstetler. Ginny is former Mennonite and is the owner of Rose Arbor Inn (local bed and breakfast). Henry believes if he marries Ginny, he will be forever cutting his ties to the Amish church. Sarah (known for speaking the truth) believes Henry is just running away from God. While Henry is working on items for D.W. Friths Thanksgiving order, he is approached by a reality show. They want to feature him on a TNC (like our TLC) show Shunning Amish. They will pay Henry $50,000 for one show (and Ginny could really use the money). Henry, though, does not feel that he should do the show. He does not want to say anything bad about his family or friends. D.W. Frith insists that Henry has to do the show or they will terminate his contract. What a dilemma for Henry? Do the show and help his career and finance? Will Henry listen to his head or his heart?

    Joe and Simon return from Colorado where they were working on a dude ranch. Both boys are happy to be home. Joe is thinking about becoming an herbalist like Sarah. Priscilla Mast (Joes girl) is happy he is home, but now Simon is taking notice of how grown up Priscilla is looking (now that Priscilla has given up on Simon). There is bound to be friction between the three.

    Sarah is trying to ignore her feelings for Henry but it is hard when she sees him so often (especially when he needs healing help for his hands). Henry had hoped that by being engaged to Ginny, he would stop having feelings for Sarah. Only Henry can resolve this situation (he has to make a choice). Amanda Yoder is still single (she is only twenty-one), but Jesse Riehl catches her eye at a young event. Jesse is enjoying his rumspringa by owning and driving a car (even got a license). His parents, though, were not very happy and Jesse is not welcome at home. Is Jesse the right type of person for Amanda or will he be a bad influence?

    I enjoyed reading the Balm of Gilead. In order to understand everything that is going on in the book, you really need to have read the first two books in the series. Adina Senft has a nice writing style. She engages the reader right from the first page and holds your attention to the last word. I give Balm of Gilead 5 out of 5 stars. The ending is just wonderful (and romantic).

    I received a complimentary copy of Balm of Gilead from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The review and opinions expressed are my own.

    Balm of Gilead quickly captured my attention and I found myself becoming involved in this story. The author really kept my interest because I never knew what would happen next. All the details of the plants and herbs, the way Author Adina Senft describes how each is used for healing is excellent. Bringing together the medicinal purposes of the plants and herbs for our body and listening to the Lord and believing Him is so powerful in this book. Balm of Gilead is a great Amish book by Author Adina Senft and the Third Book in the Healing Grace Series. I really love this book and truly enjoyed reading it. I recommend this book to family, friends and everyone.

    I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.
