Book Info and Review
About the book:
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 thoughts: A SEASON OF CHANGE is a different sort of Amish story. Jacob is still in deep mourning over the death of his wife, even though his family and friends urge him to move on. He takes his two children and go to Florida on vacation where his daughter is hit by a car and hospitalized. Circus performer Natalie is playing a clown to encourage hospitalized children and that is where she meets Jacob. It was interesting watching Natalie's faith grow and change in this story and I had to keep reading to see how this would end. An innovative approach to an Amish story.
