Love’s Autumn Harvest by Patricia Lee

Absolutely Charming

Love’s Autumn Harvest by Patricia Lee is an absolutely charming contemporary Christian novel about friendship and second chances. It is part of the Mended Hearts series.

I loved the fact that the lead characters were in their fifties and not the first flush of youth. Patricia Lee has constructed a beautiful tale around a widow and a widower who are neighbours. They have parallel lives as both are trying to recover from the loss of their spouses.

No matter how old our children get, we will still drop everything for them and for our grandchildren. Eily’s life revolves around her family and her church. She spreads love and kindness wherever she goes.

Sometimes within families rifts develop. The reader sees the huge chasm that opened up following loss. The years have not bridged the hurt. The past must be faced and the hurts healed.

There is a wonderful warm atmosphere that envelops not only the characters but the reader too.

Love’s Autumn Harvest was such a delightfully amusing read too. It is the little things in life that make us smile. Humour unites. There were times when I literally laughed out loud. Who can forget the posh shoes and the manure?

People need rescuing at times – sometimes it is physically but we all need God to rescue us if our lives are disconnected from His. I loved this quote: “ ‘Who’s holding you up?’ ‘My Lord and my prayers.’ “

I cannot get enough of Patricia Lee. Her novels are so deliciously warm and charming. Her writing swells my heart and leaves me smiling. She is on my list of favourite authors.

I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

  1. Hi Julia,

    I hope you are doing well in these unusual times. I am reaching out regarding a story of faith, grief and love which serves as an inspiration for those dealing through tough times.

    Tim and Pat Von Dohlen met one serendipitous evening when their friends and family set them up on a date — at an event space at a junkyard. But this was no typical blind date, as both Tim and Pat were well into their golden years.

    From then on, they noticed that they shared a lot in common: their devotion to their faith, their passion for education, and that they had both been left widowed and did not think they would love again.

    In their new book In Life the Journey Is Everything: From the Dump to the Gym and Beyond (August 1, 2020, 978-1-734726213, $29.95 hardcover, $19.95 paperback, $9.99 E-book) Tim and Pat recount their love story, but more importantly, the journey to that love, which they believe is just as important — if not more– than the destination. Readers will be inspired by their story and their tips for building a successful marriage.

    Inspired by the life and works of Pope John Paul II, and his message to “Be not afraid,” Tim and Pat’s journey also includes co-founding the St. John Paul II Life Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to provide natural, integrated OB-GYN healthcare to pregnant mothers and their babies.

    Does this interest you? I am happy to put you in touch with the Von Dohlen’s for an interview. Thank you for your consideration!

    Very best,

    • Thank you for your kind offer. I am afraid I am unable to commit to any more books at this time as I have a huge TBR pile. I wish you well with your sales. XX
