About:
"Kelly Irvin’s Through the Autumn Air is a poignant journey of friendship and second chances that will illustrate for readers that God blesses us with a true love for all seasons." —Amy Clipston, bestselling author of Room on the Porch Swing
The past filled her mind even as her heart yearned for stories yet to be told . . .
The mother of ten and a widow of seven years, Mary Katherine is a bundle of energy, always willing to step in and help her friends around her Amish community. Now that her last child is married, she pours her abundant creative spirit into writing stories, even as she speaks aloud to her late husband every day. Her dream is to open a bookstore with an English friend, but the church elders want this wayward widow to work in an Amish-owned store instead. When her old school friend, Ezekiel, offers her a position as a cook in the restaurant he opened after his wife died, she knows she should accept. But does she really want to spend her time working over a hot stove?
When a mysterious English stranger breaks into her house to make himself a sandwich one autumn night, Mary Katherine doesn’t call the sheriff. She turns to Ezekiel. They both see that Burke is need of more than a meal, and Ezekiel offers him the job at the restaurant.
As they set out to care for their new friend, Mary Katherine and Ezekiel find themselves often working together. Mary Katherine is drawn to Ezekiel, but she remembers the terrible risk of giving her heart to someone. Can two people in the autumns of their lives and so well-versed in the pain of loss put the past behind them and trust in the hope that comes with each new season?

My Thoughts:
The Every Amish Season Series is about a group of women who are all in different seasons of life, which is something that I have really enjoyed and loved about this series. Each woman differs by the number of children they have or their age, but the common thread is that they each have lost their husbands. 
Through the Autumn Air, has been my favorite book so far out of the series. With tender moments and laugh out loud moments, this Amish Fiction novel tells the story of a 60 year old woman who loves books. It made me wish that I knew Mary Katherine in real life. Her character is very compelling. This is a story you don't want to miss in the Every Amish Season Series! Make sure you pick up a copy today! I highly recommend it!
