Life has settled down more at Orchard Bend Farms after Samuel and Rhoda finally confessed their feelings for each other. Jacob has left the Old Order Amish settlement and is not likely to return. Leah and her Englischer friend Landon are in love, and Leah will probably leave the Amish, but not if Leah’s dad has anything to do with it. And in the meantime, disaster strikes at the orchard and everyone’s lives are turned upside down. Can this family stick together through their horrible and difficult situations or will life turn out to be a disaster for the King family.
Or, I might say, can Cindy Woodsmall weave together this dysfunctional family with all of its many twists and turns, mostly bad ones, and come up with an ending that will bless everyone? One thing I love about Cindy Woodsmall’s books is that I know each one will be a different Amish story with many unique and exciting twists and turns. With everything going on in this fourth and last book in the Amish Vines and Orchards Series, I kept getting nervous because I couldn’t see a way for this story to end without everyone falling apart. But yet again, the amazing Ms. Woodsmall so wonderfully weaves together all of the dysfunctions of this family and their friends, as well as the many difficult situations they are forced to face, and comes up with an ending that will delight your very being. I loved this series and these four books are keepers for me. If you enjoy Amish books, this one is an absolute must.
