The Scent of Cherry Blossoms by author, Cindy Woodsmall, provides a slight variation from her previous Amish-themed novels and novellas. This work looks at the differences between Old Order Amish and Old Order Mennonite sects. To the English, or non-Amish, the differences would be almost unnoticeable, but to those whose lives are steeped in one tradition or the other, the chasm between the two can at times seems vast and insurmountable.

Unlike most other Amish novels to date, Woodsmall ventures outside the confines of Ohio and Pennsylvania, and into Seneca Falls, New York, one of many areas in Western New York where the Amish have established settlements. This was particularly special for me because I grew up in the Finger Lakes region of the state, and love it still, though sadly, I live far from there now.

I’ve come to love and appreciate the wholesomeness of Amish fiction. Readers experiences the sweet beauty and harsh realities of all the seasons, and become members of the community portrayed in each novel. We enjoy our fill of love and romance, tragedy and disappointment, and The Scent of Cherry Blossoms delivers it all to us in a fresh presentation.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
