I recently had the opportunity to read A Season of Tending by Cindy Woodsmall, via Blogging for Books. This is the first "Amish" book I've read, although several I've glanced at seemed like they would be interesting. A Season for Tending is the first book in the "Amish Vines and Orchards" series. It follows two major characters, Samuel King (a young amish man) and Rhoda Byler (a young amish woman) who do not know each other at the beginning of the story, but their paths cross. Rhoda has an affinity for growing herbs and canning and a habit of mumbling to herself which cause some to spread rumors that she is a witch. Meanwhile, in another community, Samuel's family farm is at risk because of a bad batch of apples. Samuel and Rhoda's path's cross, thanks to Samuel's younger sister who is pushing boundaries on her "rumspringe" and ends up passed out in Rhoda's garden. Samueal meets Rhoda when he comes to fetch his sister. It was a very interesting book and really leaves you hanging at the end. I don't want to give away too much, but I can see potential for at least one, if not two "love triangles." I cannot wait to read the next book to see what happens! If you would like a sample of what to expect, you can read the first two chapters and see what you think. But the story doesn't get really involved until a little past that. The further you get in, the more you want to read! One of the things I like about this book (and I'm sure many other "amish" novels) is that it is clean. Sometimes that is hard to find anymore. I would definitely read another book like this, and can't wait for the sequel to this one! If you would like to read some more about the author and see what other books she has written, you can go here. And after you've read this one, be sure to keep your eye out for the next book in the series!

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