A Season for Tending by Cindy Woodsmall Today I am reviewing the latest release by Cindy Woodsmall titled A Season For Tending. It is book 1 in the Amish Vines and Orchards series. It was provided by Waterbrook Multnomah free of any charges in exchange for my honest opinion which I freely give.

This book was fantastic! It centers around an Amish girl named Rhoda who has lets say premonitions that have in the past proved tragic. The Amish community sees it as black magic and does not tolerate it. She has an extensive herb garden in which she give herbs for different ailments to both Amish and English alike. This also is not tolerated. Her peers taunt her, and a man in the community has appointed himself to destroy her gardens.

Samuel is the head of an apple orchard which has been in his family for an extensive time. He works nite and day to assure the harvest will be plentiful and assure the he will have enough money to provide for his future bride. He has two other brothers, Jacob who left the Amish community and has returned and Eli. Both brothers also tend the orchard. He also has a sister,Leah,who is in her rumspringa and is running wild.

Eli has slacked off his duties and as a result the orchard will be affected severely. Leah has gone wild to the point of leaving a party drunk and awakening in someones gardens. Having been found in the early morning by Rhoda the tale of how all involved in the orchard and the gardens begins. Tragedy, love and miracles will occur through out this book. You will find yourself cheering for the heroines and asking yourself what would I do in the same situation. I liked that this book was both a great read and one that left you thinking.

I look forward to book 2 when it is released and recommend it to all Amish fiction lovers
