A SEASON OF CHANGE from Lynette Sowell - Review

I love Amish novels and this one didn't disappoint me but it did surprise me. It is nothing like any Amish fiction I have read before, in a good way. A Season of Change by Lynette Sowell is definitely a refreshing change. This book is Book One in the NEW Seasons of Pinecraft series and I for one can't wait to read more!

A Season of Change Lynette Sowell

The story blends Amish and Non-Amish complications and family struggles. The story kept my attention. I was intrigued how the author was going to blend the two words together. I had never thought about Amish people heading of to Florida for vacations either.

About the Book

Amish widower Jacob Miller believes it was a mistake to visit the Amish village of Pinecraft for winter vacation, especially after his daughter is struck by a car. Stranded in Sarasota until his daughter recovers, Jacob grows increasingly wary of events that unfold in his unfamiliar surroundings—including the strange curiosity of Englischer Natalie Bennett.
Natalie never thought her circus career as an aerial silks artist would end with a blown-out knee at the age of 25. She also never knew her late mother had a secret—that she was once Amish.
When Natalie meets the Millers at the Sarasota hospital, she is attracted to their warm hospitality and simple ways—and soon wonders if they can help her find her mother’s family. As Jacob and Natalie fall in love, their worlds collide. Will their differences tear them apart? Or will their love be strong enough to blend their clashing cultures?

You definitely have to read to find out. I think this book took me one day to read...basically I started it on a Friday and before I went to sleep Friday, I had to finish it. Okay technically it was Saturday...but who's counting the hours after mid-night when you haven't slept yet.
