As love restores Rhoda, a sudden tragedy is the test of faith she never saw coming. More settled in her heart than ever before, Rhoda Byler feels a newfound confidence living in the Old Order Amish settlement she helped establish in Orchard Bend, Maine.
Though it has been almost a year since one brother left, Rhoda is happy to be working alongside the other brother as they tend and nurture the settlement' s orchard. Time has helped to heal Rhoda' s wounds, and she finds that even her unusual gift of profound intuition is less of a burden as she continues to seek God' s wisdom and purpose for her life.
But when an Englischer friend' s grandchild is in extreme danger, can Rhoda' s gift make a difference or will it simply be a catalyst to another season of doubt and misunderstanding? As she resolves to stay on course, suddenly a shocking tragedy challenges the young settlement like never before, threatening to uproot Rhoda' s peace and the future of everything she holds dear.

I love books!
I thought this series was a trilogy but, if so, it took the author, Cindy Woodsmall, four books to get the story told. The saga of an apple orchard in Pennsylvania, two brothers loving the same woman and she loving them both, a tornado in PA destroying the orchard and then them all moving to Maine to start a new one, and all of the accompanying trials and tribulations finally come to an end in this story. As usual, Cindy Woodsmall's greatest strength is her insight into human nature and being able to communicate that. Once again, you realize the Amish are people just like the rest of us but these stories could have any setting and be good. If anything, I wondered if Rhoda didn't choose the wrong brother, the other brother being my favoritet character in the series. I enjoyed the series and will look forward to her next books.
That the characters remained true to themselves and the prologue could not be predicted.
The other books in the Vine and Orchard Series.
She brings out the true Amish pronunciations and makes you visualize what she is reading.
Absolutely, especially since I waited months for it to be released.
Want to listen to page turner audiobooks that you don't want to quit listening to, and do not have to turn off when your children or grandchildren walk within hearing distance, Cindy Woodsmall books are for you.
