Upon a Spring Breeze (Every Amish Season #1) by Kelly Irvin

Upon a Spring Breeze (Every Amish Season #1)

My Thoughts:
I give "Upon A Spring Breeze" very high praise! Bee did not have an easy road, especially after losing her husband, Caleb. However, the life of following God isn't always easy, but following God gives Him the glory. Throughout the book, I could identify with Bee and she felt real to me. I was in awe of how Ms. Irvin did a fantastic job of making her come to life for me. This book was one that I did not expect and I look forward to many more. In the end I was rooting for Aiden and although I wasn't sure at first, I could see how God had his hand in the situation, like He does with All things! You will truly enjoy this book. If you have never read an amish book, that is okay because you will love this book. It is a calm, peaceful and yet masterpiece of a story. The characters are gems and they will invite you into a story that you did not see coming. I give this book 5/5 star. Thank you to the publisher for providing me a copy. A favorable review was not required. I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
