My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Laura Hilton -The Amish of Seymour series-book@2 "A Harvest of Hearts"
Matthew Yoder is part of a group of men that is in a "swap" of men to leave lancaster county and make a fresh start in Missouri. He comes from a large family and knows there wont be much left for him in way of farmland and he has a dream to grow blueberries.

She and her dad had always clashed about things and they never seem to realize how much they loved one another. When her classmates go on a mission trip that Shanna cannot afford to do between semesters she decides to visit home for the summer. Now she will meet Matthew and more importantly He will meet her, A close friendship soon blossoms between them and they are both surprised when they feel a stronger pull toward a different type of relationship.
Matthew knows he cannot have a relationship with an english person and prays that Shanna will relize that she needs to come back to the community-He opens her eyes to the possiblity of being a midwife to the community and pursuing a closer walk with him.
Can the amish community forget the wild young woman that Shanna has always been? Will the Bishop and elders be a little lenient? Will Shanna make some good choices that will bring closure and happiness to a lot of folks in the family and even let herself say Yes to Matthew and be his "Frau" for all time....
I am looking forward to reading book #3"Promised to Another", Thanks Laura for a great story.
