The Scent of Cherry Blossoms – Cindy Woodsmall

Best-selling author Cindy Woodsmall has just released a new book, The Scent of Cherry Blossoms. Her ability to authentically portray her characters comes from her real-life connections with Amish Mennonite and Old Order Amish families.  If you’ve read enough Amish novels, you can kind of tell which authors have a better grasp of the Amish community than others. I admit… I don’t read many books in the Amish genre but Cindy is an author that I have enjoyed in the … [Read more...]

In 2008, I had only four girls in my AP English Language class at Citrus Park Christian School. Class sizes are small here, but this was exceptional, even for us. Four students!
