The Scent of Cherry Blossoms
Author: Cindy Woodsmall
Genre: Amish, Fiction, Romance
Annie Martin is old order Mennonite and Aden Zook is old order Amish. Since they were young the have spent occasional time together at the local diner where the Zook family and Annie's Daadi Moses co-own. Escaping from a volatile relationship with mom Annie finds herself with Daadi Moses. She also finds herself once again drawn towards Aden. The cherry blossoms are beginning to bloom on the local trees and love is blooming in a most forbidden spot. Can Annie and Aden overcome it all to let love prevail?
Short and sweet The Scent of Cherry Blossoms uses the Amish and Mennonite settings to reveal real truth that is applicable to each reader. It's a short story but the characters are well developed. There were a couple of places I got the impression I had missed something so perhaps characters from previous Woodsmall books were mentioned, I'm not completely sure. It's a sweet story and I'm happy to say that love does prevail.
