A Season for Tending is the first book in the Amish Vines and Orchards Series by Cindy Woodsmall. The book introduces the reader to many interesting characters including Rhoda Byler, Samuel King, and Samuel’s young sister Leah. Rhoda is most herself when she’s tending to her herbs and berries and helping those in need. Rhoda must deal with rumors being spread about her due to her premonitions about trouble and her healing through herbs from her garden. A few hours away, Samuel King has an apple orchard that is facing difficulties that him and his brothers are trying to resolve while his sister Leah goes through her rumschpringe. Samuel and Rhoda meet through Leah, and Samuel is soon trying to find a way to partner with Rhoda to help with his family orchard.
I always like to read books by Cindy Woodsmall, and I was not disappointed with this book. Her characters were relatable, and I liked reading more about the rumschpringe time of Leah. I cannot wait to read the next books in this series. If you’re interested in this book, you can read the first chapter here.
