Season's of Tomorrow
by Cindy Woodsmall
Discription of book
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?
What I Think
Jacob has left the Old Order Amish settlement and probably won't return, since his brother and ex-girlfriend are now seeing each other in public. Then there is Leah and the Englischer friend Landon that are in love, and Leah will probably leave the Amish. But not if Leah’s dad has anything to do with it. And then a horrible disaster hits one of the family members, and throws their world unside down, and not one of them knows what to do. This family is so mixed up, its really difficult to see how this author will pull them out of their troubles.
But she does, in a surprising way. Cindy Woodsmall weaves together this dysfunctional family with all of its many twists and turns, and mostly bad ones, and come up with and ending that will bless everyone. One thing I love about Cindy Woodsmall’s books is that I know they will be a different Amish story with many unique and exciting twists and turns. With everything going on in this forth and last book in the Amish Vines and Orchards Series, I kept getting nervous because I couldn’t see a way for this story to end without everyone falling apart. But yet again, the amazing Ms. Woodsmall so wonderfully weaves all of the dysfunctions of this family and their friends, as well as the many difficult situations they are forced to face, and comes up with an ending that will delight your very being! I love, loved this series and for me, these four books are keepers for me! If you enjoy Amish books, you need to get this one, and the first three books in the series.
