The Winnowing Season by Cindy Woodsmall

I received a complimentary copy of this book from WaterBrook publishers.  Rhoda Byler is just about to finally escape.  She is on the verge of moving to Maine to help start a new Amish community.  She is going to be able to leave behind all of the rumors and misunderstanding that has made her life so hard.  Suddenly she is called home to be questioned by her religious leaders.  Will she be able to be true to herself and still be allowed to move?  I enjoyed this book.  I really liked the characters and I liked some of the questions that were brought up by the story.  Jacob is trying to start a new life by ignoring his old life.  But his old life just keeps showing up on his doorstep.  I liked that Jacob has to deal with his past before he can move forward.  He can't just ignore what he has done, he has to be held accountable.  I also liked Rhoda.  She is a strong female character who knows what she wants and how to get it.  But she also has a strong faith and is willing to let God lead her life.  I would give this book 4/5 stars.
