“Herb of Grace is filled with spiritual insights and multilayered storylines. At times readers will be chuckling and other times, misty eyed as the book unfolds.” —Amish Reader
While a young Dokterfraa learns to heal the body, the Great Physician heals the heart …
Sarah Yoder, an Amish widow in Pennsylvania’s Whinburg Township, is doing her best to provide a home where her family and members of her Old Order Amish church can find fellowship and friendship. But it’s getting more and more difficult to pay the bills—until the local Dokterfraa, or herbal healer, makes a startling suggestion: Could she begin training as a healer? Now Sarah stands where two ways meet. Caring for others could take her away from home. At the same time, she must be willing for the place where God wants her.
But when she does choose, her family seems to splinter. Her stepson Simon wants to move out west to find work. Her youngest, Caleb, is spending too much time over at the tumbledown home of Henry Byler, who left the church long ago. Henry inherited the family farm and has returned—under protest—never suspecting that God has been waiting there for him all this time.
As Sarah compiles her cures, she waits for God to do his healing work. In a man who rues a harsh decision. In a lonely prodigal who has lost everything. And maybe even in a herbalist-in-training who firmly believes she will never love again …
This is the second edition. The first edition was published by Hachette FaithWords in 2014.

Herb of Grace
Enjoyed the story, didn’t like the ending.
I needed a little pick me up and distraction from this week, so I looked at the top rated free books on iBooks, and this was one of the top on the list. I am very glad I decided to download! “Herbs of Grace” lifted my spirits and captured my attention. I even bought the rest of the series! Recommend this author and these books for sure!
Lead to the guts of the book
Enjoyed learning more about the Amish ways, their commitment to peace, faith and family. It was a warm caring read.
