Until the Harvest by Sarah Loudin Thomas

“Until the Harvest” takes place in Appalachia in the 1970’s and drops us right into a family situation in the first pages. Henry wants to focus more on his music and his parents think school should come first. Henry leaves the house upset and looking for some old school friends to spend New Year’s Eve with.. When Henry wakes up on New Year’s Day he finds his dad has passed away in his sleep. We then follow Henry through the anger, heartache, and rebellion of losing a parent so suddenly. Henry goes through a stage of rebellion that will find him running moonshine, an unexpected pregnancy with a girl he’s only know in a drunken night out and disappointing his mother, grandmother and friends with his actions. I really enjoyed the realistic settings of the mountains, the family farm, the family and church. I enjoyed this look into the live’s of the Phillip’s family and those close to them. I would recommend this. I found it to be a family drama with some touching moments of heartbreak and rejoicing that will stay with you long after the last page.
I was gifted a copy from Bethany House Publishers for my honest opinion which I have given.
