"God used the oddest situations to line people up and get them involved in each other lives."... "And from now on, he would be patient with the frustrating events, believing that God would use them to get His children to walk a new path" - A Season for Tending.

I received a free copy of A Season for Tending from Waterbrook Press to read and review and I was so delighted! Cindy Woodsmall is one of my favorite authors. Thanks Waterbrook!

A Season for Tending is the first book in the Amish Vines and Orchards Series. If you've never read any of Cindy's books before I would recommend that you try them. Even if you are not a fan of Amish fiction.

If I gave this book a theme verse it would be: "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future" Jeremiah 29:11.

Every year, since she was a little girl, Rhoda Byler received a berry and an herb plant from her father for her birthday. Now a grown woman, Rhoda's garden has grown to an acre in size and she is the operator of a successful canning business called Rhodes Side Stands. Rhoda is a very intuitive woman, which along with her desire to use herbs as a healing property, has caused some problems for her in her community. She also carries a load of guilt and wishes she had followed her intuition before it was to late.

Ever since he was a little boy, Samuel King's grandfather gave him the very first apple harvested from Kings Apple Orchard. Since his grandfather passed, Samuel has been in charge of the apple orchard. Due to a series of unfortuante events, Samuel is forced to look for help as well as a solution to the orchards overabundance of cider apples. Maybe Rhoda is the solution?

Will Rhoda agree to help the Kings? Will she be an outcast in the Kings community as well as her own?

This book had me captivated from beginning to end. When I thought I had it figured out, Cindy offered up a new twist in the plot. She takes the time to properly introduce her characters before diving into the heart of the story. A Season for Tending is going to be a well-worn favorite of mine for sure!
