Cruel Harvest

Fran Grubb’s memoir, Cruel Harvest, might have been slated to be no more than a dark, depressing tale of woe, were it not for her underlying determination to survive. Coupled with an unshakeable faith in God, that determination saw her through the type of horrific childhood which nearly defies belief. That evil can hold an entire family in its iron grip for so many years, and yet be the means of molding the likes of Fran Grubb is a powerful testament to the reality that God is deeper, broader and more comprehensive than all the forces of hell combined.

This book inspires, moves to tears, but never sinks to the level of sensationalism to which a memoir can easily fall into.
To read this book is to acquaint oneself with a modern-day hero.

  1. Thank you for the very kind review of Cruel Harvest. I cried happy tears when I read your thoughts. I'ts a blessing beyond measure to read the reviews on Amazon and blogs and know that God has annointed Cruel Harvest and is using it for His glory. I know that God brought me through the hard times and He has given me joy, peace and so much more! I wanted more than anything else, to pass on the faith, of Frances as a child. Sometimes as we get older our child like faith is questioned. My prayer is that everyone who reads Cruel Harvest will gain strength and faith. God bless you!

  2. Fran,

    My sister read part of your book online, and now wants to borrow my copy. Two of my friends plan on buying it. It's obvious that God is using your travails to His glory. I'm glad to play a role, however small, in spreading the word about this inspiring memoir.
