After finishing this book I long for spring so that I can smell and see the Cherry Blossoms in our town blooming. The images of the Cherry Blossoms in this book are so strong I can almost smell them. Trusting God despite our circumstances is one of the hardest things for anyone to do. Several of the characters are dealing with this in the Scent of Cherry Blossoms and I know I have dealt with it in my own life. The author relays the hurts and strength of the characters in this book so well that I wish I knew them in real life. True Love also blossoms in this book and it was a truly glorious story. This book was a very quick read for me and not only because it is a little shorter of a book but mostly since it was so engaging. It made me think about what is really important and helping me to realize those important people are always worth fighting for. I highly recommend this book and author Cindy Woodsmall, she never disappoints!
