Until the Harvest by Sarah Loudin Thomas
This book was provided by Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.
I had a hard time getting through this book. I was not aware that it was the second book in the series when I agreed to review it, and I wonder if that is part of the reason why I struggled to relate to some of characters. From the beginning I loved Margaret and Mayfair’s relationship. I enjoyed reading about their love for each other and how it helped them each grow and learn but I struggled with Mayfair’s “gift” and its use in the story. It all seemed a little too convenient and contrived. Henry also really got on my nerves. It wasn’t because he was flawed and made bad decisions, I love flawed characters, but I just didn’t feel he was that great of a person. He really came off as shallow and selfish to me and I loathed him throughout the whole book. I think the author tried to make him sound improved in the end, but I couldn’t overcome my dislike of him. Overall I can’t give a rousing recommendation of this book, but I’ve certainly read worse
