The Winnowing Season by Cindy Woodsmall

The Winnowing Season (Amish Vines and Orchards Series #2)
 
About This Book:
 
The tornado that devastated Kings’ Orchard pushed Rhoda, Samuel, and Jacob to make a new start in Maine. Are they strong enough to withstand the challenges of establishing an Amish community—and brave enough to face the secrets that move with them?
On the eve of their departure to begin a new Old Order Amish community outside of Unity, Maine, Rhoda Byler is shocked to discover that choices made by her business partner and friend, Samuel King, have placed her and her unusual gifts directly into the path of her district’s bishop and preachers. She is furious with Samuel and is fearful that the Kings will be influenced by the way her leaders see her, and not what they know to be true—that Rhoda’s intuition is a gift from God.

Jacob King won’t be swayed by community speculation. He loves Rhoda, believes in her, and wants to build a future with her in Maine. But when the ghosts of his past come calling and require him to fulfill a great debt, can he shake their hold before it destroys what he has with Rhoda? Samuel has a secret of his own—one he’ll go to great lengths to keep hidden, even if it means alienating those closest to him. Throwing himself into rehabilitating the once-abandoned orchard, Samuel turns to a surprising new ally.

Book 2 of the Amish Vines and Orchards series asks: can the three faithfully follow God’s leading and build a new home and orchard in Maine? Or will this new beginning lead to more ruin and heartbreak?
 
My Thoughts on This Book:
 
I have fallen in love with Amish Fiction and Cindy Woodsmall knows how to draw a reader into the Amish style of life. Captivating from the very beginning, I couldn't put it down until the end. I can't wait to get the next book in the series... I chose to read this book first as I was struggling to get my first book copy to show up on my Nook. I didn't feel like I truly missed any major story plots by reading the second one, first. The author really helps tie in the other book but not become too wordy!
 
I've heard though, the first book really helps you understand the characters of this book better so once I get my issue taken care of, I plan to read the first book before finishing the series with book 3..
 
A great read! I love Cindy Woodsmall's books and this is no exception..
 
I received an e-book copy of this book for free in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was given.
