The Scent of Cherry Blossoms

The Scent of Cherry Blossoms
Cindy Woodsmall

Annie is an Old Order Mennonite. She is staying with her grandfather when she falls in love with Aden, an Old Order Amish. According to the "rules" the two can not marry without being shunned by their church and family. 
This book loosely follows The Christmas Singing, with a brief mention of some of the people. But it can definitely be read alone. I enjoyed this book. It was a light, fast read. But it didn't seem to have the depth that the other books by this author seemed to have. I was also confused in quite a few places by the differences between the two orders. I'm sure if I had read more Amish/Mennonite books it might have made sense. But as it was, I was left confused for large portions of the book.
If you are into Amish books then this book, and definitely this author, is one to check out.

I received this book free of charge from WaterBrook in exchange for my honest review.
