    Within one of the Old Testament’s most famous battles lies one of the most tender love stories. Hidden within the battle of Jericho is the story of Rahab, a beautiful and brave young Canaanite woman who aided the Israelites by hanging a piece of scarlet cord from a window. This act of faith changed her life by placing her in the genealogy of Christ.

    In this spring novella from New York Times best-selling author Cindy Woodsmall, love between a Mennonite woman and an Amish man threatens the lifelong relationship between two brothers. Sadie is a young, single Old Order Mennonite who moves in with her grandfather to fill in for him at a restaurant he co-owns with Ellen Zook, an Old Amish woman, and her two sons. Romance between the Mennonites and Amish is forbidden, but Sadie grows to care for the Zook family - especially considerate Aden.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not really, as I was expecting much more from this usually great author.


    What was most disappointing about Cindy Woodsmall’s story?

    The story was just depressing, lacking the usual balance of redeeming bright side Cindy is known to bring out of dark beginnings.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The heroine gathering fruit from the loft was the only scene that I still see clearly. It made me both laugh and cry.


    Was The Scent of Cherry Blossoms worth the listening time?

    Sadly not.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't give up on this author if this is your first book from her bookshelf.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.
