grandma's bookshelf - The Winnowing Season - Free Chapter Free!

Yesterday I shared the book trailer for The Winnowing Season so today I want to give you the first chapter for free! But first, check out the synopsis for this book: "The tornado which devastated Kings' Orchard pushed Rhoda, Samuel and Jacob to make a new start in Maine. Are they strong enough to withstand the challenges of establishing an Amish community - and brave enough to face the secrets which move with them? On the eve of their departure to begin a new Old Order Amish community outside of Unity, Maine, Rhoda Byler is shocked to discover choices made by her business partner and fiend, Samuel King, have placed her and her unusual gifts directly into the path of her district's bishop and preachers. She is furious with Samuel and is fearful the Kings will be influenced by the way her leaders see her and not by what they know to be true - that Rhoda's intuition is a gift from God. Jacob King won't be swayed by community speculation. He loves Rhoda, believes in her and wants to build a future with her in Maine. But when the ghosts of his past come calling and require him to fulfill a great debt, can he shake their hold before it destroys what he has with Rhoda? Samuel has a secret of his own - one he'll go to great lengths to keep hidden, even if it means alienating those closest to him. Throwing himself into rehabilitating the once abandoned orchard, Samuel turns to a surprising new ally. Book 2 of the Amish Vines and Orchards series asks: can the three faithfully follow God's leading and build a new home and orchard in Maine? Or will this new beginning lead to more ruin and heartbreak?"   

So, what do you think? I'll write more about this book tomorrow, but for now . . . the first chapter is below, so . . . enjoy!
