Ove historical fiction particularly when the story takes place during either of the World Wars This book takes on an angle that I have not read about before which says ite a bit because I have read war stories than I can count It takes place on American soil where German war prisoners were sed to help with the farming community in WisconsinThe synopsis is fairly detailed so I won t get into re telling the story instead I will discuss my thoughts starting with the plotThere were many things going on in The Cherry Harvest There were the POW s brought in to do the farming difficult times with rationing coming of age young love sex infidelity and PTSD to name just a few As #INTERESTING AS EACH TOPIC WAS I #as each topic was I myself wishing for It was almost like there were so many threads that each one was glossed over a little in order to fit them all in The impact of each individual topic was lost or drowning a little because of everything else that was going on You would also think that with so much going on the story would move ickly This was the case with the second half of the book but I found it sluggish and slow in the beginning The second half was far better than the first to the point I had to stay Plastic up to finish it I also have to comment on the amazing job of the author in describing farm life during that periodI struggled slightly with the characters For the life of me I could not warmp to Charlotte She was the one who so strongly spoke in favour of having the POW s help with the farming but was resentful npleasant and scared once they were there She was whiny and immature in my opinion I also thought that Kate came across much younger than she actually was Although I didn t dislike her as much as her mother I found her terribly naive for someone of her age However I really liked Thomas which made the storyline involving Karl a little hard to swallow The storyline involving Karl and Charlotte was grossly nderdeveloped so I never really felt the attraction or became invested in how it would play outWithout giving anything away I do have to comment on the ending Surprisingly I was very satisfied with how it ended and I think I would have felt a little let down if it had ended any other way I did not see it ending the way it did but was ite pleased with itIn the end I enjoyed reading The Cherry Harvest and thought that the bones were good and that there were a few golden moments within it I look forward to reading from Sanna Read this book IFYou are 14 18 years oldYou have not read very many novelsYou enjoy grade B Lifetime moviesThe serious reader will have this one figured out from the beginning It should be classified nder Romance not general fiction Plodding story line and tedious
