For Every Season

by Cindy Woodsmall
Waterbrook Press

Rhoda Byler, along with her friends and family that traveled with her to Maine are hard at work in the new Amish Community. A reckless decision on Rhoda's part leaves her relationship with Jacob on shaky ground, and she has no idea how to fix it. Samuel is just as much to blame for his part in the fiasco, but how can a man change his feelings for the sake of preserving the integrity of the budding community of Unity? 

Rhoda feels like the settlement is home already. Despite of the mounting tension and ill will between brothers, she feels that she truly has a chance for new beginnings. Not everyone understands her "gift" and the people of her old community feared the insight that has prevented many a catastrophe. Will she and her new community be able to fight against the odds and succeed to build a new life? And will her ability to see the future aid her in deciding which man truly belongs to her heart? 

The second book left me in such suspense, I actually have been counting down the days till the third one was released! While the topic matter can be a little iffy for some people, Woodsmall has woven a story that transcends what we have come to expect from this genre. She has given us food for thought along with a wonderful story that becomes part of the new normal no matter what you believe. She has created something different than any other Amish novels, and she explores the possibility of insight while giving us what we have come to expect; romance, adventure, of course, Amish life. Recommended even if you haven't read the first two yet, although if you haven't, you will want to catch up asap.
