A Season of Love is book five in the Kauffman Amish Bakery Series written by Amy Clipson. The author does a great job introducing characters and this book can easily be read as a stand alone novel. I have read a couple of the other books in this series and plan on getting the ones I’ve missed to complete the series.
The book is set in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania’s Amish country. Katie Kauffman is an unattached Amish girl whose two best friends are courting young men from their community. Katie often feels like the fifth wheel when she is with her friends since she is unattached and most of their conversations revolve around courting and the upcoming marriage of her friends. She meets a young Mennonite man who is working with her grandfather remodeling her grandmother’s bakery where Katie works. They become fast friends but this quickly comes to the attention of Katie’s father. Amish and Mennonites don’t intermarry and Katie’s father wants to ensure that his daughter isn’t involved in an inappropriate relationship so he forces Katie to end the friendship. This book is a perfect example of how complicated life can become and how our actions are often judged by others.
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. This book is appropriate for ages 14 and up.
