For Every Season (Amish Vines and Orchards, Book 3) by Cindy Woodsmall (5 Stars)

Amish Fiction at it’s Best!!!


For Every Season (Amish Vines and Orchards, Book 3) by Cindy Woodsmall

The story continues with Rhoda, Samuel, and Jacob.  They have moved to Maine with some of their families and Landon, the Englisher, and are working hard to establish the run-down orchard before harvest.  Working on the orchard is easy compared to working on their relationships.  Rhoda and Jacob are still in love and trying so hard to make their relationship work, but Jacob’s past still keeps getting in the way.  He’s always running off to help Sandra and Casey.  He’s finally getting smart and learning that he needs to give his all in working things out with Rhoda, but lies are still turning up.

Then there’s Leah, who takes it on herself to invite Iva, from another Amish community, to come join their community and give them the extra help they need with the household chores.  When the brothers find out about what she’s done, they are not exactly what I would call “happy”.  But as with all things, God has a plan and it seems like His hand was in this move.  Iva had her own reasons for leaving her family and she’s trying very  hard to fit in with the the new Orchard Bend Farm.

Meanwhile, more and more information is surfacing about Camilla and Bob, who Rhoda is living with, and she’s still hearing voices.  She’s getting help from Landon to help her track down leads on what she’s learning and if you thought the last book was mysterious, then you’re in for more mystery!  It’s hard to say more, because I don’t want to spoil this book by telling too much.  All I will say is that some things are resolved and some things aren’t!

I’m so thankful that there will be a final book in this series, Seasons of Tomorrow,  coming in April 2014.  This has been a fantastic Amish series and I have enjoyed every book so much. Once I get started reading, it’s hard to put the book down.  Cindy has a way of drawing you into the story and getting you so involved with the characters you’ll find yourself being drawn into the book like you are one of the characters.  I love these kinds of books, when I finally finish them I feel like I’ve lost some great friends and sometimes, gladly getting rid of some characters I don’t like!

You don’t want to miss this series…you have to start with A Season of Tending #1, then you will want to immediately pick up, The Winnowing Season #2, then hurry to read this book and then wait until April 2014 before we can finally discover all the mystery and discover all the characters true loves!

    Cindy, I have just gotten the hang of how to leave a comment. I cannot even remember that I left one, but I might have. I just saw this interview you did for us and it was delightful. The part that impressed me today was how shy you were about your writing in the beginning. It has certainly been proved to you by now that you are truly a great writer. I cannot tell you how much we have enjoyed the Vines and Orchards Series at Winterville. It has been a while since something like these books has captured me the way they have. Oh, I wish I had that fourth book to read today!!! Patience, Maylin, patience.

  2. I love the Amish Christian Fiction!! I am reading a series by Kelly Long. She is lovely.
