Publisher's Description

The leaves are falling and there's a chill in the air in Willow Ridge, Missouri, the quaint, quiet Amish town where love, loyalty, and faith in the Old Ways are about to be put to the test . . .

Autumn Winds

Winds of change are blowing through Willow Ridge, and they're bringing a stranger to the Sweet Seasons Bakery. At first, widowed Miriam Lantz has misgivings about Ben Hooley, a handsome but rootless traveling blacksmith. But as she gets to know the kind-hearted newcomer, she wonders if his arrival was providential. Perhaps she could find love again--if only there weren't so many obstacles in the way. With Bishop Knepp relentlessly pursuing her hand in marriage and the fate of her beloved café at stake, Miriam must listen to God and her heart to find the happiness she longs for and the love she deserves.

"A heartwarming new voice for fans of Beverly Lewis." --Emma Miller

    The second book in the Seasons of the Heart series, Autumn Winds picks up where Summer of Secrets left off. Miriam Lantzs Sweet Seasons Bakery Caf is still thriving, as is her relationship with the newcomer, Ben Hooley. But the bishop is still irritating her and demanding she marry him. Will Miriam and her triplet daughters be able to live the peaceful life of their dreams or will things continually disturb their tranquility? Watch for more adventures when Bens brothers and aunts join the Willow Ridge Amish community. Another fun read. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Winds blow a storm into Willow Ridge as Miriam Lantz is preparing food for the day for the Sweet Seasons Bakery. She came in at 1am this morning which is earlier than she would normally have started her day. The storm seemed to be getting worse when she heard something out front. A crash and breaking glass. When she ran to the front of the store she saw part of a tree had fallen through the shop window. Then she heard a man's voice, he was trying to calm a horse when it was spooked by the thunder and kicked the man into the front of the building.

    Miriam did not recognize the man. How was she going to help him? Then she heard him speak. As she went to get a chair to take out to him she realized he had gotten up and followed her into the shop.

    He introduced himself as Ben Hooley, a traveling blacksmith. He reassured her he was alright and busied himself by removing the tree from her shop.

    The day the autumn winds blew in is when Ben also blew into her life and that of Willow Ridge community. But Bishop Knepp is determined that Ben finish his work and leave town. The Bishop has it in his mind that Miriam is going to marry him, no matter how many times she refuses his proposal. When he realizes Miriam and Ben are attracted to each other he pursues her even more. Is the Bishop after her because he loves her or so he could control her?

    I enjoyed reading a romance novel between a couple in their middle years. So many books are about young love. It kept me on pins and needles that Miriam might have her heart broken by Ben.

    The author wrote of the trials and tribulations of family and community when their leader strays from the old ways. Protectiveness of the church family for one of their widows was touching.

    "Autumn Winds" by Charlotte Hubbard is the second in the Seasons of the Heart Series. The first was "Summer of Secrets" which I have read and reviewed earlier. After reading the first one, I wished I hadn't already agreed to read the second because it was pretty bad. However, the second surprised me. Hubbard was no longer trying to out Amish the Amish and was starting to right a story. Even more surprisingly she decided to write about romance and sexual longing. And she was writing it very well. Her characters were evolving into people rather than just Amish stereotypes. Which I didn't see coming. In "Autumn Winds" Miriam is still fighting off the unwanted advances of the bishop as well as trying to get a little something started with Ben, the new guy in town. The bishop is getting his due, Ben's aunts are shaking things up, and Rhoda is getting to now herself better as her youth passes her by. Keep in mind, that she is only 21 and there will probably be two more books. I just hope she comes into her own before getting hitched. I received this book for free from www.netgalley.com.

    Charlotte Hubbard has done it again. She writes a story line so captivating that you don't want to put the book down. Her first Seasons of the Heart book, Summer of Secrets, was a fantastic read; Autumn Winds went even beyond a fantastic read. I loved it! I am hoping there will be a third book. I need to know what happens to Miriam and Ben. Will Rachel and Micah continue to be happy and will there be children in their future? What about Rhoda? Will she find her one and only? And the English sister Rebecca, there's a complete story there somewhere!

    Will the pesky bishop Hiram finally leave Miriam alone? There are so many characters this author could write about that we, the readers, would love to see happen. In other words, we want more!

    This book was filled with love, laughter, romance and some trials. I even found myself shedding a few tears. This book ended all too soon for me. I wanted the story to go on.

    I won this book on LibraryThing and was sent a copy of it to read and review from Kensington Publishers. Thank you both for a wonderful read. The opinions expressed in this review are mine alone.

    What a wonderful read. I wanted to start baking and become one of Miriam's family. This is the second book in this story, and I have not read the first...sure want to now. You do not have to read the first book to enjoy this one, enough information is provided to let you know what happened.

    Miriam has triplets that are 21, and one, Rachael is getting married. She also owns Sweet Season's Bakery, where she is early one morning when Ben Hooley literally drops in.

    Ben brings so much love of family into this story. He brings his brothers from PA and his delightful Maiden Aunts...Jerusalem and Nazareth. Be ready for a beautiful and loving journey with this family.

    Bishop Knepp is in for quite a ride here, he wants Miriam for his wife. He is quite persistent is his desires. He seems to rule with an iron hand. Love how he is about to meet his match in this story! Yeah!

    You will not be disappointed in how this story unfolds, and will not want to put it down. A really wonderful, Christian read!

    As an additional treat, many of the mouth watering dishes that are mentioned have recipes included at the end of the book.

    I received this book through Pump Your Book Virtual Tours, and Net Galley, and was not required to give a positive review.
