Planted with Hope by Tricia Goyer, Sherry Gore(review by Cathy)

Planted With Hope


From Goodreads:

In the second installment of the Pinecraft Pie Shop series, you’ll return to a town and a family you’ve already grown to love.

When Hope Miller is offered the plot of land behind the Me, Myself, and Pie shop to start a garden, she jumps at the chance. Finally–some space away from her four sisters!

But everyone in town seems to have an opinion about what she should grow and how she should grow it. When the widower schoolteacher, Jonas Sutter, asks if his students at the Amish school can help turn the plot into a community garden, Hope only halfheartedly agrees, wondering if she will ever get the peace and quiet she craves. And will she get anything to grow?

The stories of friendship, community, and unexpected love within these pages will plant real seeds of hope within your heart.


My review:

Another fantastic book from Trisha Goyer and Sherry Gore!  Endearing characters and the idyllic setting of Pinecraft make this book so enjoyable.

Hope Miller’s true passion is gardening. Having lived in Ohio for most of her life, she finds things to be quite different in Pinecraft.   The one thing she longs for, is the one thing that eludes her.

I found the friendship between Hope and Jonas Sutter refreshing and not forced or rushed.   Jonas and his daughter, Emma were two of my favorites in this book.  The interaction between all of the characters seemed very natural.

The one thing that I loved is the journal that Hope was given to read.  I have always been fascinated with Victory gardens and the sense of helping others when you can.

I look forward to reading more about the Miller family and their friends and neighbors.

Although this is the second installment in the series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone novel.

I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion which I have given.
