Review:For Every Season by:Cindy Woodsmall
About the Book:
Working hard to develop a new Amish community outside of Unity, Maine, Rhoda Byler is fully committed to rehabilitating an orchard with business partner Samuel King. But an impulsive decision has created an unexpected strain in her relationship with her beau, Samuel’s brother, Jacob, threatening plans for the orchard. Amidst mounting tension in matters of the heart and business, Rhoda finds that this fledging settlement feels like the home she has always longed for, and she begins to embrace the God-given, heightened intuition that has always felt like a burden to her. She longs for Jacob to fully be free of his past, so they can work towards the future together.
But as Rhoda uses her gift to unpack an old secret with her Englisch neighbors, it is not her beau but an unlikely ally that cheers her on. With the orchard on shaky ground and Jacob’s plans in question, Rhoda is determined to see things through to harvest. But can she trust her insight to direct her path in matters of the heart?
About the Author:
In the book number three in the Amish Vines and Orchards series, we find that Jacob and Samuel are completely on the "outs" with Rhoda because of an impromptu kiss given to her. As a result neither man is speaking to her. She herself tries to smooth things over but to no avail efforts are futile at best. Leah the boys sister decides after much thought that she will stay out of it. After all anytime before when she would interfere things only got worse. Its best just to leave things as they are and let them work it out.
Rhoda is a very determined young lady. With God on her side she hopes to make this settlement her lifetime home. But along with Him she will need the help and efforts of those around her. She comes up with an idea to turn things around. The question is, will she do it alone or will they put aside their differences and rush to her side to help?
