This was the first time for me to read a book by Cindy Woodsmall. Knowing it was a series made me a little hesitant to go ahead and read since I like to have all of a series when I read so I donâ€™t have to wait. I really enjoyed the book. It had good reading, and even though it left you wanting to know more of the story, enough of it was told to say it was a good book with a good story. Although I will have to keep my eye out for the 2nd book b/c I will want to see the next phase of this story. The plot kept you going at many different angles so it kept you interested throughout the entire book. I enjoyed the plot of Rhoda the best. Her world fascinated me on how well she gardened, canned, to moving past a tragic lost that she kept herself at fault, even though it wasnâ€™t. There wasnâ€™t much of a devotion to learn or bible verses that this writer concentrates on, but the Amishâ€™s simple life was enough for me for this story. It did show that their are many seasons a person must go through in life.This book was given to me by WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for my honest review.
