A Season Of Change by Lynette Sowell - Review of the first book in Seasons in Pinecraft series

Stranded at a Sarasota hospital at the bedside of his ailing daughter, Amish widower Jacob Miller is wary of his unfamiliar surroundings--including the strange curiosity of Englischer Natalie Bennett. Natalie, an aerial silks artist whose career in the circus ended before it began, has just uncovered a secret her mother kept hidden for years. Her mom--or rather, mamm--was once Amish.

A hundred questions suddenly surface. Why did Natalie's mother keep this secret for so long? Does Natalie still have Amish relatives? How can she learn more about her heritage? Can Jacob trust Natalie's piqued interest in his family and their simple ways, or will their clashing cultures thwart their hopes for finding the love of a family?

I found this book pretty interesting, from the start it has a catchy storyline. Amish and circus performers in one story, now that is a strange mix. It reminds you about how children see people and can build relationships when you don't have your 'adult' guard up. Lynette came up with a good idea for a book and I'm anxious to see what the next book in the series will be about. Ohhhh, I just looked on her blog ( for the second book in the series and boy does it sound 'yummy', "A Path Made Plain", and it looks like it will be out in November of this year!
