The Scent of Cherry Blossoms

Cindy Woodsmall writes another great Amish novel, The Scent of Cherry Blossoms.  It is a romance novel from the heart of Amish Country and we are introduced to Annie Martin who is of the Old Order Mennonite people.  Unfortunately, Annie and her Mom do not get along and it actually surprised me that her Mom "kicks" her out of her house and Annie goes to live with her Daadi Moses in Apple Ridge.

Daadi Moses lives near a restaurant run by the Amish.  The Amish don't believe in using electricity but the Old Mennonite do so because of Daadi Moses, the restaurant is able to have electricity.  While Annie lives with her Daadi Moses she helps out at the restaurant that is run by Aden's family and where Aden works as well.  A relationship builds but when it is found out, both families have huge objections.  Aden's brother is one of them because he was in an accident that left him wheelchair bound and he needs Aden to help him.

Annie and Aden start meeting in the evenings by the cherry trees that are beginning to blossom.  And Annie tells Aden the story behind the cherry trees.  You'll have to read about that story and how the romance turns out when you get the book, The Scent of Cherry Blossoms!

I received this book for free from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
