    1. I absolutely LOVED this book!! Definitely a new one on my list of favorites. The characters were all so sweet and even though the ending totally crushed me, (I was hoping something different would happen!) it wrapped everything up really well and it was just amazing!


    2. T. Davis Bunn and Janette Oke are 2 of my favorite authors, so when I found this book I had to get it. Having read some of their other collaborations, I had high hopes for this one and it didn't disappoint. The storyline flowed smoothly, the transitions were well-placed, and the characters are engaging. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys either of these authors.


    3. I enjoyed this book! It was a great story about friendship, and had an unexpected, though beautiful, ending. Definitely one to re-read sometime!


    4. I absolutely adored this book. It is a charming story about friendship and life with realistic and endearing characters and true-to-life situations.Bethan, quiet and devout, would be pretty if it wasn't for her one lazy eye and the eye-patch she is required to wear for its treatment. Bullied and lonely, she never expected she would have a best friend, but a lonely, lost puppy changes that when it brings the intelligent, out-going Jodie into her life.Jodie has big plans for her future but can a g [...]


    5. Return to Harmony was such a sweet, endearing story of two girls who struggled to womanhood after their friendship took a surprising turn. Life in a small town motivated one of the young ladies to leave and one to stay.Kind, shy Bethan learned how to lead and teach while Jodie learned to explore her daring dream. A stray pup brought them together and their trials taught them the pains that go along with deep friendship and devotion, to God and to each other.I was touched by the journey and the t [...]



    6. Great readI enjoyed this book a lot. It was very interesting since I'm not far from harmony pa. Wish it was a series.


    7. I'M NOT CRYING, YOU'RE CRYING.Return to Harmony is one of my favorite ever historical fictions (which is a genre I usually don't like) and maybe the only Christian fiction I've ever read (another genre I usually don't like), and it ripped my heart out and smashed it into a million pieces.I absolutely love the two main characters - I see a lot of myself in Jodie, and Bethan is the PUREST AND MOST PRECIOUS THING. BETHAN PROTECTION SQUAD 2K16. The side characters were great as well, and, although I [...]


    8. I liked this book, but I wanted to like it more. It was a lovely story of friendship, filled with gentle reminders of how easily it can be ripped from your heart, the power of forgiveness, and the surprising resiliency it has to recover from even the most painful betrayal. If you've opened yourself up to loving others, there's little chance you haven't, at least once, been hurt as a result of that vulnerability, and how often we hang onto that hurt, only punishing ourselves further. The lessons [...]


    9. Jodie and Bethan are best friends even though they have different families. Together they face hardships but always together. Then Jodie runs away from God and goes on to college to be a chemist. Bethan a prayer warrior askes Jodie to come home and be her maid of honor. Will Jodie listen to her heart and hear the calling of God?My favorite line: page 21 "But Daddy always said Momma only talked abou the hog pen when eerything was right with the world." Personally to me, I love having a couple hog [...]


    10. A restored soulTwo young girls become fast friends in a small town in North Carolina in the early 1900's. Tragedies befell both, but while one's faith in God remained steadfast, the other became bitter and turned from God and her friend. In the end, Jodie is reconciled to her friend who has faithfully prayed for her. Jodie does find God also faithful as He restores her soul. The writer did a beautiful job of drawing me in through conversations between characters and descriptions of their thought [...]


    11. This is the story of the friendship between two Christian girls as they grow up into young women. The conflict comes when one becomes engaged to the brother of the other, and the sister discovers that although her brother is a committed Christian, her friend has lost her faith. She tells her brother, who breaks the engagement, and her friend won't forgive her. This book can open a discussion on complicated issues such as the meaning and responsibilities of Christian friendship, and the importanc [...]


    12. This was a pretty amazing book. It can appeal to so many different people. Girls, Christians, anyone with a friend, anyone in love, someone with a petThe list goes on and on. It is set in a time that seemed so much more simple, yet as you read you realize that although there weren't the same problems growing up back then as there are today, there were adolescent challenges just as difficult if not more so, back then.


    13. The thing I love about Janette Oke books is how beautifully simple they are, and how perfect the simplicity works with the characters, the setting, and the storyline. Return to Harmony, a book about faith, friendship, family and a bit of romance on the side, was the perfect read on a warm afternoon. It's easy to read, but that doesn't diminish the yearn to find out what happens in the end.Another great Janette Oke book, who has yet to disappoint.


    14. I read this book for my wife as a project that we could share. It's a good little book about two small town North Carolina girls and the different paths that their lives take as they grow up. The book's ending was as we originally thought that it should have been, although the last several chapters suggested an alternate ending that would have been just as good.


    15. I liked it. I loved the ending for Bethan. I still wonder for Jodie will she end up with Lowell? It's a great book. I would also recommend the Sparrow if you'd liked this one.The Bluebird and the Sparrow


    16. One of my favorite Janette Oke books. It gave a satisfied shiver at the end. Left "scope for the imagination" while still finishing the plot. Jodie was me. I'm totally like her (other than the fact that (view spoiler)[ she turns her back on God (hide spoiler)]).


    17. A lovely story about two girlfriends. Jodie, who suffers a loss that causes her to lose faith. Bethan, who's strong Christian family loves Jodie as if she were part of their own family. A great story for teenage girls or women.



    18. Friendship last over the course of a lifetime. Complete opposites grow a bond that prevails threw fights, moves and self-conflict.
