FOR EVERY SEASON by Cindy Woodsmall

I couldn’t wait to read this 3rd book in the Amish Vines and Orchard Series! Ms, Woodsmall does a beautiful job of developing and continuing the story of Rhoda Byler and her life with the King family.
After leaving their families behind and moving to Maine, Samuel, Jacob, and Rhoda begin the hard work of restoring the neglected apple orchard they have purchased. They are also trying to establish a new Amish community so that others can join it.
Jacob and Rhoda’s romance continues but not without hindrances. His past mistakes keep intruding in their lives requiring him to deal with the consequences and right his wrongs. In Jacob’s absence Samuel is always there to help Rhoda with her struggles. He is even the first person to make her see her gift as something good, not evil.
Jacob’s jealousy of Rhoda and Samuel increases after finding out about an impulsive kiss they shared. She is heartbroken at being the one that caused a rift between the two brothers. She decides to move in with Camilla and Bob, her English friends that live in the woods behind the orchard to calm Jacob’s insecurities. Realizing he too is in love with Rhoda, Samuel decides to avoid being around her rather than hurt his brother. This only adds to the tension.
Rhoda’s unusual gift keeps making itself known and reveals some startling information about the couple’s past, but she can’t quite put all the pieces together right away. Would they listen? Should she tell them? She enlists Landon to do some internet sleuthing to help find the answers.
All the drama had to be put aside because an early frost threatens to destroy all their hard work. Everyone must work together around the clock to save the trees but this put an even greater strain between Jacob’s and Samuel’s relationship.
Rhoda’s heart is torn. If she marries Jacob the brothers will never have a relationship. If they stay and live in the Maine community, working together will be impossible. Can anything be done to solve this problem?
The surprises, the conflicts, and struggles each character faces trying to find God’s will in their life keeps the story moving along and exciting. I am anxious for the 4th book to come out! You will want to read all of them!
I received this book free from Waterbrook Press. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
