Seasons of Tomorrow
In this final installment of the Amish Vines and Orchards series, we catch up with the Byler and King families at the Old Order Amish settlement the founded in Orchard Bend, Maine. All the family members are working side-by-side in the orchard and canning business, they’ve even been able to hire on a few people to help them keep up with it all. Everything seems to be going well until the depth of the relationship between Leah King and Englisher Landon Olson is discovered. Because their behavior could threaten the livelihood of every member of the Orchard Bend Amish, drastic measures are taken that cause rifts in the family and hardships for the orchard workers. Just when it seems that the dust is starting to settle, the family is hit with unexpected tragedy. What results is a story that beautifully wraps up the series, drawing it to a conclusion.
I’m very glad that I was given the opportunity to read and review all the books in this series, but I was sad to see it all come to an end. That being said, I appreciate that the author made sure to answer all questions the reader may have, not leaving loose endings. I really enjoyed following the story of the Kings and the Bylers, their quest to establish a new settlement while not getting over absorbed with the legalism that can often accompany the Amish faith made for an interesting story. While I am sad to part ways with Rhoda and the crew, I look forward to reading more by Cindy Woodsmall.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for this review. All thoughts are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.
