I have loved every minute of this book, to me we all go through seasons of change and need our friends and community whoever they may be to pull us through and remind us that with their’s and God help we will build that strong foundation and yes the season’s will be complete. I highly recommend this book.
The book contains 4 short stories within the whole, all occurring during the different seasons of a garden, created to honor a friend's disceased husband and focuses on 4 couples individual stories.
It was interesting enough to keep my focus and get to know all of the characters quite well.
I liked that while some characters were very much the same, not all, not everyone had the same temperament nor the same opinions. Definitely a good blend of personalities.
Amy Clipston is one of my favorite Amish fiction authors. Her stories have a unique charm that make the Plain life seem so natural. Each story in this book is about 95 pages long. That's the perfect length for a lazy afternoon, right?
Each story in this book has a garden theme, but the stories go much deeper than that. Family values, relationships, and hard work are all meaningful themes of the book.
My favorite story in Seasons of the Amish Garden was The Fruits of Fall. There was a deep message of generosity and hospitality that reminded me of Matthew 25:35: "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in..." (NIV) Tena's reluctance to get involved with helping a stranger was understandable, but Wayne's open arms really stood out to me. This story convicted me to share what I have as though I'm sharing with Jesus.
