Seasons of Tomorrow (Amish Vines and Orchards Series) by Cindy Woodsmall



As love restores Rhoda, a sudden tragedy is the test of faith she never saw coming.
More settled in her heart than ever before, Rhoda Byler feels a newfound confidence living in the Old Order Amish settlement she helped establish in Orchard Bend, Maine. Time has helped to heal the wounds of Rhoda’s recent severed relationship, and she finds that even her unusual gift of profound intuition is less of a burden as she continues to seek God’s wisdom for her future. She is happy to be working alongside the King family and the love of her life as they tend and nurture the settlement’s orchard.
Yet when Leah King’s involvement with Englischer Landon Olson becomes known outside of the Maine community, her disregard of the Ordnung could threaten all the Orchard Bend Amish are building. In the midst of addressing the discord, a shocking tragedy challenges the young settlement like never before, threatening to uproot Rhoda’s peace and the future of everything she holds dear.
When several members of Orchard Bend Farms are displaced, the estranged King brother is called upon to return. Can those who founded the new Amish community in Maine unite Or will the lingering pain of past hurts and present struggles result in the end of their dreams?

My Thoughts:


I have gone full circle with the Amish Vines and Orchards Series. I started out with book one not quite sure how I feel about Rhoda’s gift of intuition and the book overall. Then by the second book it was explained more and I felt more comfortable with the series.

It was the characters that kept me coming back. Cindy Woodsmall has developed such complex and interesting characters in this series that it just has kept me anxiously waiting for the next book in the series. By the second book in the series I was hooked.

This is not your typical Amish story. Cindy Woodsmall Amish Vines and Orchards Series have kept me guessing and I never know what to expect from the characters or what will happen. For someone who reads as much as I do I really like the surprise element in a book. I loved all the characters and the author does a great job pulling together so many different events of the lives of the characters to make it blend so smoothly.


 

You can read this book in the series without the first three books but, honestly you will have a better understanding of the characters and the plot if you start from the beginning. Be opened minded and keep going in the series. I am glad that I hung in there or I would have missed a great series.

The ending of the series was great and I put Seasons of Tomorrow down feeling satisfied with how it all came together. I’m looking forward to more of Cindy Woodsmall books in the future.
