My thoughts: BREATH OF SPRING is part of the Seasons of the Heart series by Ms. Hubbard. Fans will enjoy getting to know this new set of characters and reconnecting with some old favorites in this close-knit Amish community.
Some wonderful sounding recipes and a sample chapter of Ms. Hubbard's next book, Harvest of Blessing coming later this year.
BREATH OF SPRING has a clear message of hope. The writing is well-done, but the characters were rather flat. Ms. Hubbard does do a stellar job describing the workings of a restaurant, describing the mouth watering food, the banter between characters, and the sense of community. Fans of Amish fiction will eat this up. $6.99. 362 pages.
