The Winnowing Season
I have been a fan of Amish fiction since I first picked up a Beverly Lewis book about 10 years ago, so I was happy to read The Winnowing Season by Cindy Woodsmall. I'll start by saying that I didn't realize that this was book two in a series, so I felt a little behind on the plot and characters as I was reading the book. However, she did include a brief synopsis of book one in the beginning of this book, so that was helpful. The Winnowing Season follows Rhoda Byler and Samuel and Jacob King as they begin a new Old Order Amish community and orchard in Maine. A love triangle and drama with the bishops provide interest to the drama. I am looking forward to book three as this one ends on a bit of a cliffhanger. All in all, a good, solid, Amish fiction. I recommend picking up book one first, if you haven't already. I received a copy of this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
