Barbour Review- Hope in the Land by Olivia Newport

Hey everyone! It's a typical Monday here with a little bit of happy mixed in...mainly, ice cream, grandparents, and reading/crocheting time! ;)


When Henry Edison turns up in Lancaster County to survey farm women about their domestic contributions during the 1930s, the last thing Amish housewife Gloria Grabill has time for is the government agent’s unending questions. Gloria’s hands are already full with a farm to run alongside her husband, a houseful of children, and an English neighbor, Minerva Swain, who has been trying Gloria’s patience for forty years. Gloria’s oldest daughter, Polly, wants nothing more than the traditional path of an Amish farmer’s wife, but everything she does seems to push Thomas Coblentz further away. While the Great Depression shadows the country in gloom, can Amish and English neighbors in Lancaster County grasp the goodness that will sustain hope?

               *My Thoughts*

Yay! Hope in the land was such a perfect addition to the Amish Turns of Time series. I absoultely loved how Olivia seamlessly blends Amish & English life! I found myself loving and disliking characters in every page, and I wished it would go on even longer.

Her writing is superb! I've always adored learning about our country's history, both the good, and the bad. Olivia did a wonderful job blending her chapters into a beautiful story. The historical aspects were amazing and inspiring to read about, and I was caught up from the start! Such a unique storyline makes me want to devour more Newport books very, very soon!

This is a part of a wonderful series, Amish turns of time, but can be read as a stand alone novel! Give it a read!!


                     *My Rating*

  I give Hope in the Land...


                              5 stars!! 

*I received this book from the publisher and the author in exchange for an honest review, which I have given. All thoughts were my own and I was not compensated in any other way.

Happy Reading,
