A Season of Change Book Review

I have another Amish story to share with you called A Season of Change written by Lynette Sowell.
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?
This is a really good story about second chances when you least expect them. I know I had my own when I was in my early 40's and least expected anything to happen. I think when you just give in and accept things, that is when miracles happen. Sometimes, looking too hard is worse than not looking at all, or it was in my case anyway. Once I let go of all of my expectations, everything fell into place.

And I believe that is what happens with Jacob and Natalie. They both struggle with who is right in their religion even though they know that they love each other and Jacob's children definitely feel love for Natalie.

You can find love in the most obscure places but sometimes, just sometimes, those turn out to be the best surprises of all!

Happy Reading!
