Sweet September

by Kathleen Bauer
Guideposts Books

As tenuous family bonds threaten to break apart, a mystery on the farm might be the one thing that can restore the Stevensons' hope for the harvest.

Harvest at Heather Creek Farm is an exciting time, but the children don't seem to be getting into the spirit. Emily is struggling with farm life, Christopher spends most of his time alone, and Sam is failing school. Charlotte is determined not to make the same mistakes she did with her own kids, but how can she get her grandchildren back on track?

Meanwhile, the vegetable garden is uprooted one night. Who could have done such a thing? Charlotte sets out to uncover the truth, and as the kids pull together to find answers, this cobbled-together family learns more about one another and the love that binds them together.
About the Home to Heather Creek series: Sweet September is the second book in the Home to Heather Creek series. Charlotte Stevenson is raising her grandchildren on the family farm after a tragic accident changes all of their lives forever. With the help of her husband Bob and a close-knit circle of friends, she will do whatever it takes to keep this fragile family together. See how God, who makes the sun rise and the crops grow, watches over our lives too.

My Review: 

It is harvest time at Heather Creek, and the delicate relationship between the Stevenson's and the grandchildren are either going to get stronger or be broken. In the midst of all this, the garden is uprooted and it is looking more and more like it was done by human hands. The family deals with all that is happening all in their own way, and they learn what it means to be a family - even though it may not be the conventional, traditional idea of family we are all used to.

The story is seamless despite the different authors writing under a singular pen name, and I would recommend these stories to anyone of any age. They are wholesome, enriching, and edifying in the best sense of the words. This is a tender story that will stay with you forever.  

This book was provided by the publisher through Litfuse Nest for free in exchange for an honest review.
