A Season of Change by Lynette Sowell
The Millers, Jacob, Zeke and Rebecca, are a young Amish family. Reeling from the loss of his wife, Hannah, and child that died in child birth, Jacob takes the children to Pinecraft, Florida to visit Jacob’s grandparents. While there, Rebecca is struck by a car.
While in the hospital recovering, Rebecca and her family meet Natalie Bennett, a former circus performer who is volunteering at the hospital as a clown to bring joy to the children. Natalie has her own family drama. Her father is remarried, living in California and is too busy for his oldest daughter. Her mother, whom she just found out was raised Amish, recently passed away from cancer.
As Natalie finds herself with questions about her mother’s background, she also finds that this family has a hold on her heart. As the young Miller family now takes up residence in Pinecraft as Rebecca heals, will their hearts heal as well?
While this is the first book in the Seasons in Pinecraft series and the first book I’ve read from Sowell, with the well-crafted, emotion filled story, this will certainly not be the last. With Amish and Mennonite fiction being more popular than ever, I would add this new series to my shelf today. Amish fiction fans will love this new story as much as I do.
