Book Review - A Season For Tending
A Season for Tending is written by New York Times Best-Selling Author Cindy Woodsmall. This book is the first in a new series called Amish Vines and Orchards. I love Amish fiction so I was looking forward to reading this new novel by Ms. Woodsmall.
Rhoda Byler is a young Amish woman who has a gift for growing herbs and berries. This alienates her from others in the Amish community because they think her gift is strange. Samuel King is an Amish man living in another community who is struggling to keep his family's apple orchard profitable. Samuel eventually ends up meeting Rhoda through his sister Leah, and they realize that they both can help each other. But then tragedy strikes so Rhoda, Samuel and his family members make a decision to start over in Maine.
My thoughts: I really enjoyed reading this book and am a fan of Cindy Woodsmall. The plot was interesting to me and the characters realistic. There seems to be a love triangle starting between Samuel, Samuel's brother and Rhoda and I am looking forward to reading the 2nd book in the series to see who Rhoda ends up with! I would recommend this book to others.
Disclosure: I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.
