I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
A Season of Change by Lynette Sowell
Seasons of Pinecraft Series #1
Synopsis: An Amish widower finds love in unexpected places.
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?
My review: This is my first book by this author and I thought she did a very good job on this book. I enjoyed reading about Jacob, I felt really bad for hi and the pain he was going through while his daughter was healing and him being in an unfamiliar place. I liked how the circus was a part of this story and how Natalie's mom used to be Amish. It was neat to see this in an Amish story. One thing that I liked about this is that I have been to Sarasota and the village of Pinecraft so I could imagine myself right in this story line. The author did a good job of writing a nice clean story with a little romance involved without making it sappy. I am looking forward to the rest of this series.
