    " One of my favorite books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 2/11/2014

    " I liked the wholesomeness of this story. The man is full of integrity, patience, and gentleness. The love story is sweet, and it has a good ending. I enjoyed the descriptions of the plants and animals, but it did tend to go on and be a little excessive. Overall, though a nice old-fashioned love story. Clean and simple. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kanoobie01 | 2/6/2014

    " I liked this book! I can't decide how to rate it. It was just a little hard to get through but it had a good ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alicia | 2/1/2014

    " Not as good as Laddie (by the same author) but a fun, clean read, with beautiful descriptions of nature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kellie | 1/31/2014

    " Beautiful love story. A little too much botany info but every husband should read this story and follow his example :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail | 1/16/2014

    " Like most Gene Stratton Porter books, and most popular literature from the early 20th century, this book very sentimental with manly men and womanly women and a couple of villains, but I enjoyed reading it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/16/2014

    " Could be that I especially loved this book after just having finished The Outlander. It was such a beautiful expression of "He loved us first". I loved the description of the reason we need to forgive on p. 320, "The only way on earth to cure the pain is through forgiveness. That, and that only, will ease it all away, and leave you happy and free for life and love. So long as you let this rancour eat in your heart, you are not, and never can be, normal. You must forgive them. Then your heart will be at rest at last, your soul free, you can take your rightful place in life, and the love you crave will awaken in your heart. Forgiveness is the only thing that will cleanse your heart of bitterness and leave it free for the tenanting of a great and holy love. "

    " Excellent book. Interesting and engaging plot with some good twists and it kept me hooked right till the end. And her descriptions of nature are almost encyclopedic in their knowledge, yet beautiful at the same time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diana | 11/15/2013

    " Such an unrealistic book, yet it makes you happy to read it and wish for more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adrienne | 10/3/2013

    " A very sappy and sweet romantic story. I enjoyed this story, simply because I love Gene Stratton-Porter and it is a virtuous story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Elisabeth Porter | 8/2/2013

    " I love, love ,love this author, very hard for me to describe her stories other than, I feel very much a part of her stories they feel very real ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grace | 7/31/2013

    " This is the picture of how a man and woman's relationship should be. I love David. I love Ruth. If I could, I would marrry somebody like David, somebody who is passionate, noble, God-fearing, and caring. If more men strove to reach this standard, our world would be a better place. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 7/24/2013

    " I really enjoyed the symbolism of harvesting a relationship with patience and hard work. The hero is by far the most "perfect" man I have found in literature. It gets a little too botanically descriptive at times. Very American novel. (Takes place in late 1800s early 1900s midwest.) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anajoy-rusticgirl | 6/24/2013

    " My favorite book by Gene Stratton Porter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaya | 3/14/2013

    " Quentin the psychic was emphatic that I needed to read this so I would recognize my soul mate when he came along. It's taken me months to get into it (I put it down for a loooong time), but I'm looking forward to reading it tonight. That's good, right? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Jamieson | 3/6/2013

    " This is one of my favorite Stratton-Porter books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alicia Williams | 2/27/2013

    " Wonderful period romance -- 1909 Michigan. I would just *love* to find an Annotated version of this book with expanded information about the multitude of plants and medicinal herbs, seeds, roots and flowers The Harvester gathers in his work. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 CynthyB | 2/16/2013

    " I just finished reading The Harvester again, and once again transported to a world of wholesomeness, nature, beauty, love and dreams that become reality. I love this book and recommend it highly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Angelyn | 12/9/2012

    " I absolutely loved this book. It was delightful to read about the harvesting of the herbs and the honesty of the harvester. I thought is was a very fun romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 7/5/2012

    " "The Harvester" doesn't quite resonate with my soul the way "Girl of the Limberlost" does, but it's still a fun, light summer-time read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue Lipton | 5/15/2012

    " What an absolutely wonderful book! An old-fashioned, old-timey, romantic, mushy, scarcely-believable but totally sweet story about a man who honors the earth and nature; conjures his beloved; suffers trials and tribulations; you know where this is going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thebluetornado | 4/4/2012

    " I'm not usually fond of "dead authors" but this book was wonderful! I LOVED the ending! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 1/10/2012

    " I enjoyed the descriptions of the fields and woodlands immensely, plus I learned a lot of the medicinal uses of the wild plants. Ms Stratton-Porter outdid herself in the amount of nature writing surrounding the tender love story at the heart of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 9/14/2011

    " I really liked this book, although it does have a lot of description of plants for medicinal purposes. Beautiful story of faith, perseverance, and love set in descriptive language. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra | 4/28/2011

    " Sappy, very sappy. I loved the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Abby | 4/25/2011

    " this is what a real love story is. it's a little slow and weird in the beginning but then it turns into this beautiful handbook for how men should treat their wives and i don't know how anyone could read it and not just melt. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracy | 3/11/2011

    " Lovely, lovely, lovely! New favorite book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sonia | 12/8/2010

    " I really enjoyed this book though it was slightly 'dragging' at times...:D
    Great read for anyone who enjoyes reading about nature, romance, and a little bit of mystery! ;) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 11/30/2010

    " I enjoyed the descriptions of the fields and woodlands immensely, plus I learned a lot of the medicinal uses of the wild plants. Ms Stratton-Porter outdid herself in the amount of nature writing surrounding the tender love story at the heart of the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 10/25/2010

    " Yes, its corny and romantic, with little speeches in it, but its a very good read. If you like L.M. Montgomery and Burnett (Secret Garden, Little Princess), you'd like Stratton-Porter's books. This one is brimming with plants and the love of nature and natural healing. And a good man. Sigh. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liza | 8/30/2010

    " I read most of it.
    Pretty mushy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peg | 6/22/2010

    " One of Stratton Porter's very romantic novels of poor people who become rich or are unknowingly rich and thus of the "right" class. Also full of the birds, trees and natural history of the Indiana woods of the turn of the century, 1800's to 1900's. "
