“For Every Season” Book #3 Amish Vines and Orchards, by Cindy Woodsmall
The new Amish settlement in Maine is struggling to become established. The apple trees have been untended for several years and the work to prepare for the spring and then harvest is monumental. But these hardworking families are up to the task. Samuel and Rhoda have the knowledge to work with the trees and the land. Jacob is finally here to stay, at least he says he is. But his troubles from the construction business still haunt him.
This is the third book in the Amish Vines and Orchards series and the characters remain the same. There is a lot of time spent and the work needed to ready the orchard in hopes of a successful harvest. And as we get to know the characters better, we learn more about their struggles and relationships.
I enjoyed this book because I had read the others in the series. If this is the first book you have read, it may be a bit hard to get up to speed with the characters, but after a couple of chapters you should be ok. I was a little disappointed in the abrupt ending, but it makes me ready for book #4.
