Overview

Planted with Hope by Tricia Goyer, Sherry Gore

In the second installment of the Pinecraft Pie Shop series, you'll return to a town and a family you've already grown to love.

When Hope Miller is offered the plot of land behind the Me, Myself, and Pie shop to start a garden, she jumps at the chance. Finally—some space away from her four sisters! But everyone in town seems to have an opinion about what she should grow and how she should grow it. When the widower schoolteacher, Jonas Sutter, asks if his students at the Amish school can help turn the plot into a community garden, Hope only halfheartedly agrees, wondering if she will ever get the peace and quiet she craves. And will she get anything to grow?

The stories of friendship, community, and unexpected love within these pages will plant real seeds of hope within your heart.

PLANTED WITH HOPE is the second book in Ms. Goyers and Ms. Gore's The Pinecraft Pie Shop series, but it easily stands alone. Fans will want to read about the beginning of the pie shop in the first book, Made With Love. I can't say I was really a fan of this book. There is zero sexual tension between the hero and the heroine. He is still mourning his deceased wife, but his daughter needs a mother, and Hope seems the perfect candidate because she loves Emma. Hope wants a garden where she can be alone and she is a bit selfish in not wanting to share her space especially when everyone makes it clear they want her to head up a community garden. I wanted to like these characters, but they were flat. There were more developed characters in the WWII journal that was loaned to Hope. Not up to the first book in the series standards, but there are some interesting recipes in the book as well as gardening tips and tidbits of history. Fans of Amish fiction, Ms. Gore's recipes, or Ms. Goyer's WWII books might be interested in this book.

Well the authors have me hooked! This is the second in a series. This one could have been read independent of the first and still been just as enjoyable. The only thing that kept me from giving it a full five stars was a slight feeling of confusion that some elements of the story didn't quite line up. And while I this story met most of my criteria for a good story it wasn't quite a page turner. I will definitely be wanting to read the stories of the two sisters remaining that I hope the authors will still be writing of.

Planted With Hope is the second book in the Pinecraft Pie Shop Series. You will once again read of familiar characters from book one as well as meeting some new ones. You will find characters that bring history to the storyline while developing a new story all their own. Adventure and romance will weave their way through the story keeping you turning the pages for the next twist in the story. This was a very enjoyable story, yet I was disappointed in the number of missed edits.

“Planted With Hope” is the second installment in the Pinecraft Pie Shop series by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore. This was the first book I had read in the series, but it won’t be the last! This book is a story of friendship, faith, and love that will keep readers coming back for more. Hope Miller has recently moved to Pinecraft, Florida from Ohio, where she was known as a wonderful gardener. All Hope longs for is a garden of her own, and a place to find some peace and quiet away from the busyness of life. When her sister offers to let her grow a garden in the plot behind her pie shop, Hope thinks this might be exactly what she is looking for. When the local schoolteacher, Jonas Sutter, asks her if the local schoolchildren might be allowed to help with the gardening, Hope wrestles with the idea of sharing her retreat with so many others. Her reluctance is complicated by her growing feelings for Jonas and his daughter, Emma. Hope comes to realize that sometimes God provides blessings through unanswered prayers, and gives us what we didn’t even know we needed. “Planted With Hope” is a delightful story, and the many recipes included at the end of the chapters are an added bonus (I can’t wait to try the recipe for Luscious Lemonade Pie!). I highly recommend this book. I received a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.

This is a great book; this book is part of The Pinecraft Pie Shop series by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore. When Hope Miller is offered a plot of land behind the Me, Myself, and Pie shop to start a garden, she jumps at the chance. It is a good way to get away from her sisters for a break. When Jonas Sutter asks if his students from the Amish school can come help her she agrees. What she wasn’t expecting was the feelings towards Jonas. If you are looking for a great book then you need to read this book. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

Planted with Hope is the second book in the Pinecraft Pie Shop series written by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore. In this book we are taken back to Pinecraft and to the Miller family. When the Miller's moved from Ohio, Hope Miller had to leave her beloved garden behind. Hope has always found peace and quiet in her garden. It's also where she could go to think and pray. Although Hope has tried planting a small garden in Pinecraft the soil just doesn't have what is needed to grow vegetables. When a plot of land is offered to Hope by her sister Lovina behind her Pie Shop. Hope is excited by this gift and starts planning what she will plant. While at her garden Jonas, the substitute teacher approaches her with a suggestion that makes Hope wonder why she was given the land. One day a friend gives Hope a journal to read which talks of Victory Gardens. Now Hope is confused as to if she is suppose to invite the community in. Can Hope find it in her heart to give up the police of her garden? What role will the journal and Jonas play in her decision? There is an added bonus to this book of Amish Proverbs in the beginning of each chapter and wonderful recipes at the end. What part does each of these play in the story? Does Hope open up her heart and let the community help with the garden or will she give up and move back to Ohio? Jonas has other plans for Hope and tries to show her what love and family could be like. Emma, Jonas daughter, has a plan of her own. Will father and daughter work together to win Hopes affection? I highly recommend Planted with Hope to all those who love Christian fiction and Amish genre. I have rated this book with 5stars. I did not receive a complimentary copy of this book but felt that by reviewing it more readers will make the decision to read it. I look forward to the next book in this series.

Reading Planted with Hope by Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore is a delightful, poignant, and satisfying experience! There are no characters in this novel; only dear friends whose lives are unfolding before you. Each friend is developed so well that you feel their pain and cheer at their triumphs. Although I have never been to Pinecraft, I felt drawn in and welcomed. In addition to the strong faith, spiritual growth and the tentative steps into romance, this novel incorporates recipes that are built into the story, a wealth of gardening information and draws us back to the time of WWII. The lives of those dealing with the dreaded telegram, making sacrifices that we can’t imagine today and the ever present rationing, are sobering. And yet these two time periods, these parallel lives, are woven together with the graces of God that are timeless. This story and these friends will stay with you long past the last page.

The second book in the Pinecraft Pie Shop series, Planted With Hope focus on Hope Miller’s life and her love of gardening. We are reunited with her sister Lovina and her soon to be husband Noah, and other folks we met in the first book. We travel the picturesque streets of Pinecraft, Florida, and spend our time with the plain people. As the book opens we meet preconscious Emma eating a double dipper, what a mess and our Hope comes to her aid, and she does it again in a more serious situation. Emma is the catalyst to bring her dad, Jonas, the substitute teacher until the end of the school year, and Hope together. The town garden that Lovina has a hand in brings Hope out and into her heart desire, gardening. Hope has a hard time relating to people, and would rather hid in her garden, she longs to go back to her life in Ohio, and takes an action with the hopes of returning. God seems to have other plans here, but will Hope open her life and heart, but there are many other people that are taking here hand and trying to lead her into the world. Will Hope follow what is being placed in front of her, or will her doubts keep her locked in her own little world? The answers are here, and we might not agree with how things turn out, but you may be surprised. I received this book through Net Galley and the publisher Harvest House, and was not required to give a positive review.

A very delightful read. Sherry Gore and Tricia Goyer continue to delight us with this second book in their “The Pinecraft Pie Shop” series. I once heard a quote by Hal Lindsey that said, “You can live 40 days without food, about 3 days without water, about 8 minutes without air, but only for 1 second without hope.” As we meet up with those characters and places in Pinecraft, FL that we met in the first book of The Pinecraft Pie Shop series, we find Hope Miller not really happy in her new home in Florida. She misses her home in Ohio, where she was known for her gardening. When her sister, Lovinia, offers her the land behind her pie shop, Me, Myself & Pie, Hope feels this might bring her the happiness and solitude she misses with gardening. Little does she know how her love of gardening and having time to herself will change as she goes through the process of preparing her garden. New to Pinecraft, widower and farmer, Jonas, and his sweet daughter, Emma, come so he can teach school for a semester. Jonas is still grieving the death of his wife, Sarah, and feels little hope that he will ever want to find or will find anyone that he could love again. “Hope” as a person and “hope” as a feeling, lend many twists and turns to the plot of this book. I love how Hope struggles with her many emotions and how the hope of finding new happiness, play out in this book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read the Amish genre, as I couldn’t put it down until I had finished it. I look forward to reading the remaining books in this series. I received this book from Harvest House for my honest review.

This is the second book in the Pinecraft Pie Shop Series. I absolutely love reading about Pinecraft, Florida. The Amish community there is one of a blending of Old and New, Mennonite and Amish. They may be eclectic but they make it work. And as the saying goes, "What happens in Pinecraft stays in Pinecraft." may not always be true. Hope Miller is one of the Miller girls. She feels as if she lost her identity when they moved to Pinecraft. She loves the soil. Gardening is the one area that she excelled in when they lived back north. However, Pinecraft is not conducive to a garden. She longs to return to her northern roots and have a huge garden. When her sister allows her to make a garden behind the pie shop, Hope believes that this will be her escape. But when a Victory Journal shows Hope that a garden can be so much more, will Hope want to finally share her love with the community? Jonas Sutter has come to Pinecraft to fill in as the school teacher for one semester. Not only is it the change he needs right now, but it is the change his daughter needs. However, he longs to return to Kentucky and his home. When the opportunity to teach the children of Pinecraft what a garden really is arises, will Hope and Jonas be able to work together? And does this cooperation lead to more? This series has been both fun and a delight to read. Each of the characters are well thought out and well rounded. You cannot help but start to root for them to excel and grow. I look forward to another one in the series. Tricia Goyer and Sherry Gore make a great team of authors.
