A Season For Tending

Full Product Description

Cindy Woodsmall gives you a beautiful tale with characters fashioned with unique craft and sensitivity to the Amish way of life. A Season for Tending will leave see you swept up in a story that absorbs your full attention as Cindy introduces you to Rhoda and her ability to sense when something bad is about to happen.

This and her talent for growing berries and herbs make her the talk of the town and give her an air of mystery that  people think best to avoid. Enter Samuel King: hardworking, stubborn and blunt. Struggling to keep his apple orchard fully in profit, he carries a secret from his past. And then there’s young Leah; notoriously bad at making choices.

In this first book in Cindy Woodsmall’s ‘Amish Vines and Orchards Series’,  Old Order Amish man, Samuel King, needs to keep the family’s apple orchard profitable to avoid a hostile corporate take-over. Meanwhile, thirty miles away, Rhoda Byler is known for her green thumb and successful canning business, but her father is about to take away her two-acre plantation.

Samuel believes he has the answer to both of their farming business needs. But when he learns that Amish community members suspect Rhoda’s success is down to the practice of magic, he changes his mind. After a tornado destroys his orchard, Samuel seeks a new start among a group of Amish establishing a new settlement in Unity, Maine. However, unaware of Samuel's plans, Rhoda has joined a different group of Amish heading for that same destination.

Cindy Woodsmall is a best-selling author of eight works of fiction and one non-fiction book whose connection with the Amish community has been featured on ABC Nightline, in the Wall Street Journal, and throughout other Christian and general news outlets. She lives with her family just outside of Atlanta.

Publisher's Description

PUBLISHER'S BOOK DESCRIPTION: In a community where conformity flourishes, seeds of Rhoda’s odd behavior were planted long ago. Can she cultivate her relationships with the same care and tenderness that she gives her beloved garden?

Old Order Amish Rhoda Byler’s unusual gift and her remarkable abilities to grow herbs and berries have caused many to think her odd. As rumors mount that Rhoda’s “gift” is a detriment to the community, she chooses isolation, spending her time in her fruit garden and on her thriving canning business.

Miles away in Harvest Mills, Samuel King struggles to keep his family’s apple orchard profitable. As the eldest son, Samuel farms with his brothers, the irrepressible Jacob and brash Eli, while his longtime girlfriend Catherine remains hopeful that Samuel will marry her when he feels financially stable.

Meanwhile, Samuel’s younger sister Leah is testing all the boundaries during her rumschpringe, and finds herself far from home in Rhoda’s garden after a night of partying gone badly. But Leah’s poor choices serve as a bridge between Rhoda and the King family when a tragic mistake in the orchard leaves Samuel searching for solutions.

Rhoda’s expertise in canning could be the answer, but she struggles with guilt over the tragic death of her sister and doesn’t trust herself outside her garden walls. As the lines between business, love, and family begin to blur, can Rhoda finally open up to a new life? And what effect will this odd, amazing woman have on the entire King family?
