"The Scent of Cherry Blossoms" by Cindy Woodsmall- book review

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Cindy Woodsmall has released a new Amish romance novel. In this sweet book, Annie and Aden renew their friendship when Annie visits her grandfather and helps Aden at the family diner while his brother, Roman, travels to help his uncle with a generator problem. All seems well, and the romance is budding, like the cherry blossoms in her grandfathers fields, but there is an underlying problem. Annie is from Mennonite and Aden is Amish. While these sects seem to be closely aligned, they both hold closely to their belief and do not want to mix and mingle, especially in the possibility of marriage.

Both Aden and Annie know this, but cannot deny the feelings they share toward each other. And there are huge consequences on both sides of the fence if they pursue their relationship.

Easy to read. Cute hardbound book, with pink binding. Perfect Valentine's Day gift for your sweetheart.

Annie, an Old Order Mennonite of 19 years of age, has been having issues with her Mamm, who wants her to date boys. In having issues with her mom, she is sent to her grandfather's home. There, Aeden who has a stutter and a wheelchair bound twin brother, is a hard working Amish man of 22 years of age. Annie has been working at Aeden's family's diner while visiting, in which her grandfather has been helping out with. The problem is that a Mennonite girl has no place in an Amish boy's heart, for that would be wrong since they both have made their vows as members of the church.

This book is filled with drama and heartaches and frustrations and I cried so much while reading the last fifty pages (my husband was in shock because I never cry after reading a book, and he sees me read a couple books a week). It was so good! My one issue was that the main character's name is Annie and her love interest's last name is Zook. . .like the Annie's People series by Beverly Lewis. . .unless it was an homage to it, but thankfully the story was different. I liked this!!

Nice story about a forbidden romance between different denomination couple. Already committed to God, can they still have a life together with God's blessing? Could have been a much longer full of other surprises, but a great little read.
