A CBA bestselling author, A New York Times Bestselling Author, A USA Today bestselling author Old Order Amish -- Samuel King needs to keep the family apple orchard profitable in a day when corporate farming has taken over. Thirty miles away, Rhoda Byler is known for her green thumb and successful canning business, but her father must take back her two-acre grove. Samuel believes he has an answer to both of their business needs, but when he learns that community members speculate that the unusual Rhoda practices magic, he removes his business offer. Weeks later a tornado destroys his orchard and he, too, must find a new start. Samuel decides to join a group of Amish who will establish a new settlement in Unity, Maine. Unaware of Samuel's plans, Rhoda has joined a different group of Amish heading for that same destination.

Elements of Sarah Addison Allen's gentle magical realism meet the Bonnet Ripper craze in this opener to Cindy Woodsmall's latest series, Amish Vines and Orchards. After her sister's death, intuitive Rhoda is distrusted by Plain Folk and Englischer alike. Rhoda finds solace in her garden, but even that upsets the locals who believe her herbs are used for witchcraft. Responsible older brother Samuel and the prodigal Jacob are working to keep their family orchard in the black. When spider mites attack the back tierce, they reach out to Rhoda in hopes of saving more than this year's apples.

This is my first time to read author Cindy Woodsmall. I thoroughly enjoyed her style and look forward to the second book in the series due out in April 2013.
