Cindy Woodsmall's new series begins with A Season for Tending where the reader is introduced to an Old Order Amish Community. The cast of characters are well developed making the reader believe we could have a conversation with Rhoda Byler about gardening and canning or with Samuel King, Jacob King, and Leah King. Rhoda has been gifted with the ability to grow herbs and berries. So much so that she has established her own canning business but not with out a cost. Miles away Samuel King is struggling to keep his family's apple orchard from going under. An unexpected incident with Samuel's sister, Leah, links the King family and Rhoda. Samuel thinks that Rhoda is the answer to his struggling apple orchard. Is she? Or does she bring them more trouble? You don't want to miss this book. I am anxious to read the rest of the series. I received this book free from WaterBrook Press to review.
