The Scent of Cherry Blossoms

From the back of the book: Annie Martin loves the Plain ways of her beloved grandfather. Retreating from a contentious relationship with her mother, Annie goes to live with her Daadi Moses in Apple Ridge.
But as spring moves into Pennsylvania and Annie spends time among the cherry trees with the handsome Aden Zook, she wishes she could forget how deeply the lines between the Old Order Amish and Old Order Mennonite are drawn.
Can Annie and Aden find a placed for their love to bloom in the midst of the brewing storm?

My review: The Scent of Cherry Blossoms is another good book by Cindy Woodsmall, but I did not like it as well as I liked the other books I have read by her. Some of the scenarios seemed a little unbelievable, although they did make for a good storyline. I enjoyed being reintroduced to some of the minor characters from previous books and getting to know them a little better. Once again, I appreciated the way Ms. Woodsmall was able to make her characters real in their personalities and struggles. If you enjoy Amish stories, I definitely recommend that you read this one. It just wasn't my favorite. I received a complimentary copy of this book from Waterbrook Press in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
