    1. Just finished this book and the hardest part is waiting for next book to see what happens next. Cindy's talent for writing is beyond compare. Winnowing Season continues the story of Rhoda, Jacob and Samuel. You feel the turmoil and happiness with each of the characters. How they handle each situation that is presented to them.


    2. Blah! I just could not get into this book. I've known about it since it first came out in 2013 but the summary didn't sound good. After reading it I knew my assumptions were correct! Good thing I've already read this author and enjoyed her other books or I may have based her upcoming books on this one.


    3. Very good story so far. lot of complexity in the characters and they are not perfect. Looking forward to see what happens next.

    6. I think this book was dragging on things and it was not holding my interest long past the first few chapters. It got boring halfway through. I am really sad such a thing happened considering how hooked I was to the first book. It was still good. Definitely dramatic.The setting is now in Maine at the new orchard that the Kings and some of the Bylers live at now. They are the first Amish community there. Jacob has been helping out his old English friends which keeps him far apart from his girlfrie [...]


    7. Rhoda Byler looks forward to getting a fresh start. Jacob has a past from being in the English world that he can't escape. And Samuel can't fight what's in his heart. The main characters have really changed since the series started. Cindy Woodsmall makes me feels like I know the characters in this book. They are all so likeable, even with their faults. I looked forward to reading this story and wasn't disappointed. It is just as good as the first book. I can't wait to find out how everything com [...]


    8. A passionate and engaging story centered around a young woman attempting to honor God with her gifts and the attempts to forge a new community. The ending of this tale was particularly maddening to me, as now I am compelled to seek out and read the next book in the series though I should not complain as I do so enjoy tales told by Cindy Woodsmall


    9. Ugh. It took me forever to get through this one. I have to admit that I don't like all the stupid drama. It's like every character is back in high school. More gardening, more orcharding, less upheaval. If I continue on to book 3 it won't be for a long time. I can't say that I care enough about any of the characters to really want to find out what happens to them.


    10. I love the complexity of Ms. Woodsmall's characters -- they are so believable she must be modelling them off real folks or basing them on the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. The fact that she's able to hold my interest through a whole series is testimony to what a skilled storyteller she is.


    11. Hard time getting into this book. Can honestly say I wasn’t thrilled with it. Tried to stick to reading it but didn’t love it


    12. "Rhoda Byler shoved her to-do list into the hidden pocket of her apron and slipped out of the summer kitchen. A brief glance assured her non one was around to see her. She needed a few minutes, however fleeting, without anyone tugging at her. Her shoulders and arms ached as she walked into the orchard. She breathed in, and the heady scents of fall and ripe apples helped soothe her frayed nerves. After nearly two months of nurturing the tornado-ravaged orchard, she found the view both uplifting a [...]



    13. After a tornado ripped through King's Orchards, owners and business partners Samuel, Jacob and Eli King and Rhoda Byler decide to purchase an abandoned orchard in Maine to restore, and give the damaged orchard time to recover. To do that, a new Amish community needed be established around the orchard. There were no other Amish in Maine. Several families purchased the orchard together and prepare to move to Maine. Samuel and Jacob King have gone with their sister Leah, along with Rhoda and her br [...]


    14. I really loved this book, even though I haven't read the first one. This book is all about horticultural skills, Rhoda trying to get out of struggle and her love life, and God calling her. I really wished that she and Jacob would end up together, but after reading it, I really really wished that she would end up with Samuel, such a weird feeling. Oh, how I wished to get the third book in the same store. Too bad this was second-handed, and it wasn't with its other books, you know if the previous [...]


    15. THIS SUMMARY/REVIEW WAS COPIED FROM OTHER SOURCES AND IS USED ONLY AS A REMINDER OF WHAT THE BOOK WAS ABOUT FOR MY PERSONAL INTEREST. ANY PERSONAL NOTATIONS ARE FOR MY RECOLLECTION ONLYRhondaRhonda was born with a special gift that was given to her by God. She has a keen sense of intuition. I'm not just talking about common sense, sometimes things are revealed to her before she even knows whats happening. Her whole life she has been trying to smother this gift, because it made people hate her. E [...]


    16. Rarely is a second book way better than the first. This book is one of such. There was never a dull moment start to finish. It would be fine as a standalone but I wouldn’t recommend that it be read that way at all. The fun in seeing the story in the big picture would be terribly missed, and Cindy is weaving something beautiful here. This book is AWESOME! Talk about a reloaded. A Season for Tending is really good, but it pales in comparison with this one, the second in the series. I was right w [...]


    17. Samuel King and Rhoda Byler have become partners in the Kings' Orchard and the Rhode Side Stands. With the help of Rhoda's friend Landon they found an old orchard in Orchard Bend, Maine so they get approval from the district and purchase it. Eight of the Kings and Bylers move to start a new Amish community.Samuel and his brother Jacob have both fallen in love with Rhoda, while Samuel keeps it to himself Jacob expresses himself to Rhoda and she reciprocates the feelings. The problem is that Jacob [...]


    18. Out of all the books released this year I think I was looking forward to this one the most. I was not disappointed but I am freaking out that I have to wait for months to read the next installment! This is easily one of my new favorites. I am so in love with these characters and how unique they are. I’m embarrassed to admit that I’m SO glad that I’m not Rhoda because I have no idea which brother I would choose. Samuel comes off so harsh at times and yet I can’t help but to adore him. The [...]


    19. The Winnowing Season is book 2 in the series and follows A Season for Tending. The main female character is Rhoda Byler who has a gift of being able to intuitively know what is about to happen. Some call this a hunch. Some call it "second sight." But some deem it witchcraft or evil. But Rhoda has lived with this gift virtually her entire life and has learned to suppress and hide it from the people around her. Because, you see, the Amish deem it evil. But Rhoda is a woman of God and one who seeks [...]


    20. After suffering a few setbacks - namely vandalized farmland and then a tornado - Rhoda Byler along with Jacob King, his brother Samuel and Rhoda's brother's family, they make the decision to move to Maine.The speculation of Rhoda's strange actions - she can sense things - doesn't sway Jacob's affection for her. In fact he's more than willing to stand by her side. Samuel, the main business partner with Rhoda is struggling with his emotions. The Byler woman is headstrong and opinionated but has am [...]

    22. What an excellent sequel! I absolutely LOVED IT!!! From the beginning I though Rhoda was with the wrong brother. Don't get me wrong I love Jacob but I loved Samuel first! LOL! That said I was on the edge of my seat ready to read this sequel because of the way the first one ended! In The Winnowing Season feelings fly and who will end up still together by the end? This can be a stand alone book because there is a catch up in the beginning. So if you missed A Season for Tending (I suggest you get i [...]


    23. Money grubbing author. Drags out a story so we have to buy four books.So much for the 'Christian' ways she tries to shove down us while on the other hand greedily rakes in our dough.This story is about a gal, Rhoda, that has demonic feelings, clearly something God detests, and a guy that owns a orchard a few miles away. (Deuteronomy 18:10-12)"There should not be found in you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, anyone who employs divination, a practicer of magic or any [...]


    24. Author Cindy Woodsmall continues the story of young Rhoda Byler, whom we first met in "A Season for Tending", with "The Winnowing Season", Book 2 in the "Amish Vines and Orchards" series. Rhoda is an Old Order Amish member with intelligence, a head for business, and the gift of "intuition", which she feels is God-given. These personal characteristics, combined with a natural ability to grow produce and herbs, cause some in the community to allow superstition to enter their view of Rhoda. When so [...]


    25. Back when I started reading the first book in this series: “A Season for Tending”, I wasn’t even sure I liked it. I am beyond glad that I gave it the benefit of the doubt and kept going! WOW! What a powerful story!When reading “A Season for Tending”, it took me almost a week to finish it (no I’m not a slow reader just…you know, life). Did NOT have that problem with “The Winnowing Season”. Looking back, I’m not sure if it’s because I was so intrigued by the story by the time [...]


    26. This is the middle book in the Amish Vines and Orchards trilogy and starts just before the main characters leave their community for Maine. Before they leave, however, Rhoda must face her bishop over allegations regarding property damage. If the situation isn’t resolved neither she nor her older brother and his family will be able to leave in good standing. Jacob has promised to support her at the hearing, and then escort the group north, but he disappears without word. As the group starts to [...]

    28. It's been a while since I have read an Amish book. After reading The Winnowing Season by Cindy Woodsmall, I found myself wondering why I waited so long. This book reminded me of all of the many little reasons I love a great Amish read!The book takes off right from where Book one of the Amish Vines and Orchards left off.Rhoda Byler is looking for a fresh start. Ready to move to Maine and begin a brand new life, with her boyfriend Jacob and his brother Samuel who is also her new business partner. [...]


    29. One of the many things that I appreciate about Cindy Woodsmall’s series is that they seem to come out in pretty quick succession. Even with that it is still sometimes hard to immediately remember what happened in the last book and where we are at in the story. At the beginning of each of her subsequent books is a short synopsis of what has occurred in the story up to this point. I really wish more authors and publishers would adopt this practice.This installment picks up where the first book l [...]
