Publisher's Summary

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. Is heartache all that is ahead for the Amish family when Sadie steals one man's heart, leaving his wheelchair-bound twin without a caretaker?

Disappointing

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.
