Review of An Autumn Wind in Walnut Creek
by Sicily Yoder
However, when one of the judges at the quilting group passes on, she wills Martha her apple orchard, but there is a catch: she has to deliver a basket of secrets to women in her former Amish community, some of which were those that judged her over eight years ago.
While Martha struggles to deliver the notes, she must make friends with the tenant farmer, Ray Miller, at the apple orchard, and he has a secret of his own...one that can change her and Alice's life forever.
Will Martha's parents accept her and allow her back in the family and community? Will Ray Miller love Martha and her daughter, Alice? (Ray is running the farm that Martha now owns the home attached to it!) What will the notes say? Will there be trouble or peace restored?
I enjoyed this book immensely. Autumn is my favorite season, and Sicily weaves it all through out the book with cider, fresh doughnuts, pumpkin whoopie pies, beautiful leaves changing colors, children returning to school, and more. This story holds many surprises and I do believe you will love them as much as I did!
