A HOPEFUL HARVEST by Ruth Logan Herne, Reviewed by Winnie Thomas

When I pick up a Ruth Logan Herne book, I know I’ll be in for a heartwarming, delicious read. A Hopeful Harvest fit right in with those expectations. The setting at an apple orchard and the cast of realistic, caring, and engaging characters set the tone for a delightful, uplifting story. Libby Creighton and Jax McClaren were both suffering from events in their pasts, and I was rooting for them to find healing and happiness. I loved Jax’s caring, compassionate tenderness with Libby and her struggles. He was a true hero and was able to step in and help her with exactly what she needed.

Herne knows how to depict small-town living at its best and the feeling of community it can have with everyone chipping in to help those who are in need. She also is an expert at depicting people with flaws and real issues and bringing them hope and healing. This is the first in Herne’s Golden Grove series, and I’m looking forward to reading more about this enchanting town. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy realistic, charming, and uplifting stories.
