Love these books

What did you like best about this story?

Loved the pictures painted of Amish farm and family life.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

Cindy Woodsmall weaves another enjoyable story and creates characters I'm always sorry to say goodbye to when the story ends. While the stories are a little soft and in some ways slightly predictable, I love these books as something easy to enjoy listening to while I work around the house and as I sit and relax for the night. I bought this series to listen to as I drove a long road trip this summer and when I finished the first book, could barely wait to figure out how to download the rest for the ride home. Very enjoyable books and she paints such a beautiful, peaceful picture of amish country life while still showing the challenges and multidimentional struggles of living in such an insular society. Can't wait to start another one of her series.

I like Cindy Woodsmall's stories!

This is the second in the author's latest trilogy. In the first book a tornado destroys the apple orchard that supports two families in Pennsylvania. Parts of the two families move to Maine to take over a foreclosed apple orchard to bring in some money while the Pennsylvania orchard is brought back to life. Among those going to Maine are two brothers that love the same woman, who, of course, is going along on the new adventure, she being the horticulture expert needed to get the new orchard going in Maine. Cindy Woodsmall, as usual, does a great job of pulling the heart strings. I'll look forward to the 3rd book to see how it all turns out. Of course, anyone interested should start with the first book. Enjoy!

Great Book, can hardly wait for Book #3

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it was great and now I can hardly wait for Book #3 to find out what happened in Rhoda'. s life

What did you like best about this story?

Suspense on which Amish brother she will discover is really the most thoughtful and honest to become her husband. .

What about Stina Nielson’s performance did you like?

All of it! She is great!

If you could take any character from The Winnowing Season out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Samuel, because he needs to learn to speak up

Any additional comments?

Jacob and Samuel both love the same woman--what will really happen?
