Hope Crossing by Cindy Woodsmall Book Review and a $25 Giveaway to Family Christian! #FCBlogger

This is a sponsored post for Family Christian. All opinions are honest and are my own.
Welcome to the Homemaking Party! I'm excited to share with you one of my favorite authors, as well as a giveaway for a $25 Gift Certificate to Family Christian!

I remember how I felt the first time I finished a Cindy Woodsmall book. It was relief mixed with delight. It can be so hard to find a Christian fiction book that presents a real story with real emotions and characters who act like I really would, were I in their shoes. Woodsmall is that kind of writer and I've enjoyed everything I've read from her.

Hope Crossing is a compilation of her three full-length Ada's House novels. Here is some info on each story from Family Christian:

The Hope of Refuge
Two very different women are pulled by their strongest desires. Deborah Mast joined the Amish church and longs to marry her fiancĂ©, but he is changing. Cara Moore is forced to look into a life that was meant to be hers. Will Ada’s House help them realize their hearts’ desires or will it force them to accept what life has done to each of them? 

The Bridge of Peace
Living out her passion for teaching, Lena Kauffman’s work is suddenly interrupted by a series of pranks and accidents targeted toward her and her students. When tragedy strikes her dear friend Grey Graber’s family on school property, the school board begins to blame her for the trouble. As grief and confusion take their toll on Grey and Lena’s friendship, they are both forced to face a new reality that may offer the peace and love they each long for.

The Harvest of Grace
Fleeing a terrible mistake, Sylvia Fisher dedicates herself to saving the failing Blank farm. When prodigal son Aaron returns, he is surprised by this unusual farmhand who opposes all his plans. Will Aaron and Sylvia’s unflinching efforts toward opposite futures mask the bigger picture—a path to forgiveness, grace, and the promise of love?

This three-in-one collection includes the entirety of the best-selling Ada’s House trilogy, now at a new low price!
