I love to read! Being a part of this Blogging for Books program has been such a blessing. It is great to read all of these books that I may not have had an opportunity to read otherwise. It has been amazing to pass the books on to my church library and see how many other people have been blessed by them as well.
This month my book to read was For Every Season by Cindy Woodsmall. I loved it. I was interested in reading it becasue I had already read the 2nd book in this series and I was anxiously awaiting the arrival of book 3.
This is the story of an Amish community that is just starting in Maine. The community is struggling to get everything together for their first harvest, but it is rough. Things have taken longer than they thought to get together (for various reasons) and if this first harvest isn't successful then it is unlikely they will be able to afford to stay in Maine.
Meanwhile Rhoda Byler is dealing with life. Her relationship with Jacob is torn, as is her relationship with his brother. She has to resolve issues between the brothers as well as figure out who she is and what God would have her do. In many ways she is the heart of the orchard, and while Rhoda is in turmoil, so is the orchard. You'll have to read the story to find out how they resolve the problems.
