For Every Season by Cindy Woodsmall is the 3rd installment of the Amish Vines and Orchards series. In this series there is tension between the brother Samuel and Jacob and this is over the love of Rhoda Byler their business partner. Rhoda and the others have started to feel at home in the new Amish settlement that they have set up. Others have started to notify them and want to request information about them in order to move there and join them. Landon, Rhoda’s longtime friend has configured a website which is attracting buyers. Rhoda has already worked through her legal problems and Jacob has contacted a lawyer and is working to get him out of his problems and maybe work through Casey and her daughter, Casey’s problems at the same time—this time without complicating his love life with Rhoda. With all of this going on the orchard seems to be thriving under the care of Rhoda and Samuel when weather this time in the form of a late spring freeze once again threatens to undermine all their work. Read the book yourself to find out how the threesome solve their personal problems and also work with the rest of the family to save the orchard.
I had read the first 2 books of the series and was excited to be able to read the 3rd one. I see on one of the back pages that there is another coming out in the spring and now I am anxiously awaiting that one. I love this series and I liked this one better than the 2nd one. It seemed that the characters in the story have become more loving and forgiving of each other’s character flaws and accept each other for the gifts that each of them has. This book is excellent reading for those (especially women and girls) of the age of about 13 up. The reading is easy but the plot easily holds the interest of grown women also and as always there are recipes in the back.
I received this book from Waterbrook Multnomah for this review.
