Welcome to McCall Farm, where two hearts harvested love and then life made its fruits bitter.
High school sweethearts Matt and Katy McCall fell in love behind the bleachers with a kiss. Life is easy and happy until Katy is offered a job across the country and Matt refuses to give up his family’s generational farm. They painfully part—one due to stubbornness and the other ambition. Years go by and the rift widens until tragedy brings Katy back home to the farm—and the man who still held her heart.
But home is not the same and neither is the man she left behind. Matt is on the brink of losing the precious farm. He’s angry at life, and the tragedy has left him feeling like half a man. The last person Matt wants to see is the woman who left him for a career he believed mattered to her more than he did—and gutted his heart on the way out.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wow, what an incredible story. Love’s Bitter Harvest brought forth so many feels. Anger and sadness being at the front. I want to be very careful with this review not to say too much. If you’ve read the blurb, then you already have a good idea of the premise. While, in my own heart, I believe all the circumstances of what happen stem from Katy leaving. As the story goes on, I see that there were also other elements to blame such as miscommunication, lack of respect and a huge amount of stubbornness. You will hear a lot of, “You left me!” & “You didn’t ask me to stay!” At the beginning, I completely blamed Katy. She was so wrong, and it did appear to me that she didn’t love Matt enough to stay. As I read on, I understood that pride took a huge role in the halt to their seemingly perfect marriage. By the end, I liked Katy but still couldn’t forgive her for leaving the way she did. Don’t get me wrong because Matt could have stopped her, could have gone after her or answer her first phone calls at any time. He didn’t. So, while Katy was the initial break in their marriage, I feel that because of stubbornness and pride (on both parts) things could have been settled a lot sooner and Matt would not have been where he was on the night of his accident. Again, this is only my opinion. I can’t help the way I feel.
This is the first book I’ve read by Jas T. Ward. As a blogger, many releases pass my desk and I try to read the blurbs on all of them before I post the release to my followers. I do this because I don’t want to miss out on a great story. After reading the blurb for Loves’s Bitter Harvest, I purchased it immediately. Even before I hit publish on my blog.
This is one of the best written books I read this year. I won’t soon be forgetting these characters or the obstacles they faced getting back together. This author has a way of tugging at your heart, giving you the experience of being there rather than just reading about it. I want to warn you that there are many heartbreaking moments; I constantly prayed for a miracle. Matt had so much more to deal with than the aftermath of his accident. He also needed healing in his heart. He needed someone to help him see his flaws. By the end of the book, Matt’s growth as a character made me so proud. He also made me sad for the things he felt he needed to give up. Katy and Matt’s journey has quite a few obstacles in the way. There are misunderstandings and pride that seem to always be a factor. I am not going to give away the end of the book. The last chapters were so satisfying and despite me wishing more for Matt and Katy, I was happy for them. They were truly happy and, in the end, that is all that matters.
I can’t wait to read another book by this author. Her writing talent truly appealed to me as a reader and I’m looking forward to more.
This is my honest and unbiased review and I that you for taking the time to read it. 🙂
