Fiction - Amish & Mennonite
I was luck enough to be given a chance to read A Season for Tending before it was even released. Cindy Woodsmall tells a wonderful story of an odd Amish women named Rhoda who prefers to spend most of her time in her garden than with her peers. Most of her community are appalled by her gift and avoid her at all cost. Across the state lives the King family. Samuel, the oldest boy trying to revive the old apple orchard. Eventually the two meet thanks to Samuel's younger sister Leah. Samuel and his brother convince Rhoda to come back to the orchard to help.
There were a couple of twists and turns in this book and it kept me on my toes. I really fell in love with how Ms Woodsmall wrote this story. I wish she would have went deeper into the relationship of one of the couples and I was really pulling for some characters! I truly can't wait for book number 2.
