Book Review- The Scent of Cherry Blossoms by Cindy Woodsmall

The Scent of Cherry Blossoms
By: Cindy Woodsmall

From the Back of the Book:
Annie Martin loves the Plain ways of her Old Order Mennonite people, like those revered by her beloved grandfather. Retreating from a contentious relationship with her mother, Annie goes to live with her Daadi Moses in Apple Ridge.

But as spring moves into Pennsylvania and Annie spends time amongst the cherry trees with the handsome Aden Zook, she wishes she could forget how deeply the lines between the Old Order Amish and Old Order Mennonite are drawn.

Can Annie and Aden find a place for their love to bloom in the midst of the brewing storm?

My Thoughts: 
I have read and review several Cindy Woodsmall Books.  This was a another home run for me.  I feel in love with Annie and Aden and their simple innocent way of looking at life.  Cindy did a very good job of bringing the characters in this book alive.  These two both have such sweet personalities it's hard not to love them and root for their happiness.  From the start of the book I was really taken back by the predicament these two are in with one being Old Order Amish and the other Old Order Mennonite.  Each of these facing rejection from their people if they choose to stick together.  I really was in suspense to see how their story would end.  There is a bit of a crossover of characters from the book The Christmas Singing, I love when that happens in a book!!
I really thought this book was an easy read.  It was not hard to keep up and did not require a lot of brain work to keep all the characters straight. 
I give this book a 5 out 5 I really enjoyed it!
