Cindy Woodsmall returns to bookshelves in February with The Scent of Cherry Blossoms: A Romance from the Heart of Amish Country (WaterBrook Press). Love between an Old Order Mennonite woman named Annie Martin and an Old Order Amish man named Aden Zook threatens the lifelong relationship between two brothers. Can Annie and Aden find a place for their love to bloom in the midst of the brewing storm?
“I love balancing the desired goal of the Amish way with the reality of being human,” Cindy says. “Thankfully, my Amish friends appreciate that I keep the stories ‘real’ and that I don’t put them on a pedestal.”
