HeatherRichey, MTAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Love the endingJanuary 24, 2017HeatherRichey, MTAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I really enjoyed this book, especially when I realized it was the second in a series. I loved Miracle in a Dry Season and to go on with those characters was a nice surprise. This book has so many lessons. I wanted to shake Henry quite a few times. I could understand his heartache and did wonder why his mother didn't talk to him. I recognized the teenager in him from watching my kids. It ended so well, reminding me that as long as you raise your children right, they will return to you.
I received a free copy of this book for my honest review. I was not paid for my review.

loriwellerLancaster,PaAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great Book!!!!!!December 19, 2015loriwellerLancaster,PaAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Until the Harvest is Book 2 of Applachian Blessings. Book 1 was Miracle in a Dry Place. This book is easily read as a stand alone. It concerns two young adults as they struggle with their identity. It is thoughtful, emotional, and full of love and faith. The characters are unforgettable and find a place in your heart. The secondary characters are just as lovable as the primary ones.
I received this book from the BookClub Network in exchange for my honest opinion.
MauriKansasAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Until the HarvestOctober 16, 2015MauriKansasAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Reading UNTIL THE HARVEST is like taking a trip back to see friends, since I've read the previous book, MIRACLE IN A DRY PLACE. It was good to be reacquainted with Emily, Perla, Frank, Angie, and briefly, Casewell, about twenty years after the end of MIRACLE IN A DRY PLACE. We meet Perla and Casewell's son, Henry, who goes through many trials and changes. Additional main characters are Margaret and her young sister, Mayfair, who suffers from diabetes and can seemingly heal others. Margaret and Mayfair are products of one of the most dysfunctional families I've ever heard of, but through the influence and love of Emily and Perla, manage to be fairly normal. I loved this story and will look forward to more books by Sarah Loudin Thomas.
jacquiRIllinoisAge: Over 65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Until the HarvestSeptember 16, 2015jacquiRIllinoisAge: Over 65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Until the Harvest by Sarah Loudin Thomas is a charming story of two young people, searching for meaning in their lives. Henry Phillips struggles with the direction his life should take. His father wants him to get an ag degree, and he feels drawn to playing music. His fathers sudden death confuses him, and he makes some unfortunate choices. He has two strong, faith-filled womenhis mother and his grandmotherwho continue to influence and support him.
Margaret is a capable, strong young woman who lacks confidence in her appearance and her appeal to the opposite sex. Her home life leaves much to be desired with an aloof, uncaring mother who withdraws into alcohol and a father who is too occupied with his business, leaving Margaret and her sister to their mothers whims. Her younger sister has severe diabetes, and Margaret is the one who cares for her.
The growing friendship between Henry and Margaret enables them to rely on each other and to work toward a common goalthe success of Henrys grandmothers farm. The supporting cast of characters add humor and interest to a plot that entertains and teaches faith-based lessons. I recommend this book. I want to read more of this author. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.
