For Every Season, by Cindy Woodsmall, is an outstanding novel. The third in the Amish Vines and Orchards series, it continues the story of Rhoda Byler, an Amish woman with a gift for gardening and cooking who carries the burden of a powerful intuition.
This story begins with Rhoda, her business partners Samuel and Jacob King, their sister Leah, Rhoda’s brother Steven and his family, and her English business partner Landon struggling to rehabilitate their orchard near Unity, Maine, where they are beginning a new Amish community. With Jacob still working through legal problems lingering from his time away from the Amish and longing to be free of it all, tension continues to build. Samuel and Rhoda’s kiss near the end of book two remains a roadblock for all of them. Rhoda is determined to be loyal to Jacob, but cannot shake her attraction to Samuel.
After reading the first two books in this series, I was prepared for the cliffhanger ending in this one. I look forward to reading the next book.
I would definitely recommend this book to all who enjoy Amish fiction, but suggest reading the series in order.
I received this book free from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
