About Seasons of Tomorrow
As love restores Rhoda, a sudden tragedy is the test of faith she never saw coming.
More settled in her heart than ever before, Rhoda Byler feels a newfound confidence living in the Old Order Amish settlement she helped establish in Orchard Bend, Maine. Time has helped to heal the wounds of Rhoda’s recent severed relationship, and she finds that even her unusual gift of profound intuition is less of a burden as she continues to seek God’s wisdom for her future. She is happy to be working alongside the King family and the love of her life as they tend and nurture the settlement’s orchard.
Yet when Leah King’s involvement with Englischer Landon Olson becomes known outside of the Maine community, her disregard of the Ordnung could threaten all the Orchard Bend Amish are building. In the midst of addressing the discord, a shocking tragedy challenges the young settlement like never before, threatening to uproot Rhoda’s peace and the future of everything she holds dear.
When several members of Orchard Bend Farms are displaced, the estranged King brother is called upon to return. Can those who founded the new Amish community in Maine unite Or will the lingering pain of past hurts and present struggles result in the end of their dreams?

I love Amish fiction...I've read just about every Amish fiction book on the "shelves" so to speak, so it takes a lot to surprise me or keep me in suspense with Amish stories. Cindy Woodsmall hit a home run with the Amish Vines and Orchards series and if you haven't read the first three books in the series, you need to do so before reading Seasons of Tomorrow. The twists and turns of the story line...the complexity of the "characters" was...
This book took me a little while to get into but once I got into it, it was great. Cindy once again does an amazing job. I don't want to give anything away but its worth the read (after all of the other books in the series of course). This book was a great way to end the series. It brought everything to a close and at the end of it, you feel good.
This is a series that I have been reading and I am so glad that I have read this installment. I love the author's knowledge of the Amish and how she uses it in her writing. I felt like I was with Rhoda and helping her build her settlement. The characters are lively and they have been through so much in the past books. However they never give up on their faith. The inner struggle of the Amish world and the Englisher world has always been tough...
My Thoughts On The Book: This fourth book in the series centers with the Amish families who moved to Orchard Bend, Maine and I loved it! Cindy Woodsmall is quite the wordsmith and storyteller. It seems that each new season seems to bring new trials and tribulations. In this book I found that Rhoda seemed to be more settled and her love for Samuel grows stronger every day. The question is will Jacob drive a wedge between the two of them....
I have been waiting to read this book and I was beyond excited. I don't want the series to end and Cindy keeps it going with Seasons of Tomorrow. I felt like it was all coming to a head with this book. By this time in the series you are totally invested in these characters and you genuinely love them. I felt myself going through the emotions a ton in this book. There were some lovely new additional characters introduced during...
