THE WINNOWING SEASON
The second book in the Amish Vines and Orchards series continues a wonderful story about hope and the chance of starting over after tragedy. The characters are sweet and charming, becoming quite real to readers.
Rhoda Byler, along with Samuel and Jacob King, moves to Maine to start a new Amish community and an apple orchard. She loves Jacob, but he disappears quite often without explanation. She begins leaning on Samuel, knowing that it is wrong. Will they be able to create a new community and business for themselves? And which King brother is the better choice for Rhoda?
