The Scent of Cherry Blossoms by Cindy Woodsmall

Annie Martin loves the Plain ways of her Old Order Mennonite people, like those revered by 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 amongst the cherry trees with the 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 place for their love to bloom in the midst of the brewing storm?

My thoughts.....

Not only is the book cover charming but the story itself is, it's such an enjoyable read. This book has it all... heartbreak, betrayal, romance. The characters are so real, interesting, and likeable. Each has their own problems to deal with and reading their story is compelling and inspiring.
I learned about the differences between the Amish and the Mennonite communities and could visualize the cherry blossoms.

If you love Amish fiction you'll love this book!

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
