The Scent of Cherry Blossoms

Walking through the cherry trees. Hand in hand. True love. Forbidden love. Unacceptable. And completely real. Annie and Aden have known each other since childhood. It has been years since they have seen each other and the comradeship they had as children has blossomed into love. Only, they cannot be together.

Annie's Mennonite faith and Aden's Amish faith keep them from exploring true love. Neither is allowed to date and marry outside the faith. But when Annie's life seems to fall apart, she leaves home to live with her Daadi Moses, she reconnects with Aden and finds that sometimes true love doesn't live within the boundaries of society.

I really enjoyed this story, so unlike a lot of the Amish romance novels currently hitting the market. Cindy Woodsmall captures the purity and innocence of a love denied and a couple determined to do what is best for those they care about.
