When a family tragedy derails Henry Phillips’s college studies, he’s left unmoored and feeling abandoned. Although Henry tries to find escape in bad company, the only things that can tamp down his anger and grief are the family farm, his fiddle, and sweet but unusual pre-teen Mayfair Hoffman.

Unfortunately, Mayfair’s older sister, Margaret, with the freckles and cute, turned-up nose, has the opposite effect. Worse, she’s his grandmother’s housekeeper and helper, so she’s always around and ready to push his buttons. At first he thinks she doesn’t care about his loss, before beginning to understand she’s facing her own struggles. Mayfair’s health and unique gift sit at the heart of those worries, and Henry and Margaret soon find themselves relying on each other as both Henry’s future and Mayfair’s life are put at risk.

My Review

A captivating story of lessons learned, growing faith, and the power of love. Until the Harvest is a beautiful reminder of how different the world could be if we all strove to be more like Jesus. 

Henry Phillips longs to redo the last night he had with his father. His new-found responsibility as provider to his mom and grandmother has him looking for solutions in all the wrong places. On his reckless journey between young adult and man, he befriends Margaret and her younger sister, Mayfair, a diabetic preteen with a special gift. As Henry finds his life’s purpose, he stumbles upon truth–a truth that sets him free.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoyed Miracle In a Dry Season by Sarah Loudin Thomas, to anyone searching for a unique story line, and to those who believe in the power of healing.

I gave this book 4.5 stars!
