I have NEVER EVER been disappointed in a Cindy Woodsmall novel. She writes fabulous fiction that captures your heart and endears her characters to you.
The Scent of Cherry Blossoms really demonstrates the clash of cultures, or faiths. I had no idea how different the Amish faith is from the Mennonite faith . . . and the strict adherence to staying within your sect. However, this doesn't stop fictional characters, Annie Martin and Aden Zook.
Annie left home and a difficult relationship with her wavering mother, to spend time with her beloved grandfather. While living with her grandfather, a special childhood friendship blossoms when Annie offers to help out at the Zook family diner for a brief time.
In an effort to squelch the blossoming relationship between Annie and Aden, Annie’s grandfather forbids Aden to speak with Annie and threatens to take away the necessary monetary funds that keep the Zook’s diner running.
True love wins . . . but you will have to read The Scent of Cherry Blossoms for yourself to find out how!
I was given The Scent of Cherry Blossoms for free in exchange for an honest review. Thanks Waterbrook Press!
