While Betsy nurses a hesitant heart, Thaddeus shows a similar hesitancy about rejoining an Amish community. Though neither can deny the attraction between them, Thaddeus is hiding a past that could threaten their future together.

Amish, Mennonite, Christian Fiction
I really enjoyed this 5 star book. I found it to be refreshing, heartwarming and a great example of what it takes to live the life of faith. The author Lynette Sowell did an outstanding job of bringing life and excitement to the characters. It was well written with many examples of what life is like when you dedicate yourself to live a life filled with higher moral and faith filled standards.
Betsy Yoder is recovering from a broken heart. She pores her heart into her new bakery. Working hard to bring desserts from her Amish heritage to the village of Pinecraft and prove to her family that she can succeed. Former Amish pastry chef Thaddeus Zook is hiding from his past. He has lived as a Englisher and as Amish, his heart loves both worlds. He turns to his grandmother for a safe refuge until he came get his life in order. There he meets Betsy Yoder and sparks fly. They fight their attraction until his past catches up with him and Betsy is kidnapped to get at him. He must now decide what is most important the Amish life, the English and how does Betsy fit in. I loved this book. It can be read as a stand alone but is book 2 of the Seasons in Pinecraft Series. I have read book 1, A Season of Change and loved it also.
I want to thank the author Lynette Sowell and publisher Abingdon Press for bringing good clean Christian books like this one to readers like me. I was provided with this book in exchange for my honest review.
BeverlyOhioAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5I enjoyed the multi-genre appeal of this book.November 8, 2014BeverlyOhioAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The second book in the Seasons in Pinecraft series, A Path Made Plain, is so much more than am Amish Romance story. You will find this book woven full of mystery, suspense, characters finding their place both in and out of the Amish community, and behaviors not typically found within the Amish fiction genre. Yet, at the same time, the spiritual threads clearly weave themselves throughout the story and its characters.
I enjoyed the multi-genre appeal of this book. It could be read as a stand-alone novel; however, the background found within Book 1 (A Season of Change) will certainly enhance your reading pleasure. I am enjoying the surprising twists found in Ms. Sowells, Seasons in Pinecraft series. The setting of the Pinecraft community in Sarasota, FL lends itself well to characters and events not commonly seen in Amish stories.
A copy of this book was provided to me by the author in exchange for my honest review.
MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Return To Pincraft FloridaNovember 4, 2014MaureenTSyracuse NYGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Just finished reading Lynette Sowells Seasons In Pinecraft book 2, and enjoyed my return visit, and am hoping for another. We have several return characters, and must say this book is about one that I didnt have a favorable impression of in the previous book. This is a read alone book, but you will love the first book in this series A Season of Change: Seasons in Pinecraft Book 1, I did!
This is Elizabeth [Betsy] Yoders story, and I now have a much better feeling about her, and learned to love her! It is also about Thaddeus Zook and his foot in both cultures, and not feeling he belongs in either.
In this story we have a little bit of everything, including a murder, and some violence, not usually associated with the Amish Culture. Most of this follows Thad to this peaceful Amish/Mennonite Community, and he is appalled at how it affects these people he cares for.
These Plain people have their faith where it should be, in God, even with some of them acting as gossips! You will be surprised how this story unfolds, and how the evil can worm its way into everyday life. Especially when you see the sparks flying between Betsy and Thad, and wonder what is going to give, or will he ride off on his motorcycle?
There is also Aunte Sarah, who you will find prickly, and then learn to warm up to her. Have this feeling with a lot of the characters in this book, from my bad habit of judging, as I said Betsy.
Dont miss this continuing Saga in Pinecraft Florida, you wont want to leave, I sure didnt want to.
I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Abingdon Press, and was not required to give a positive review.

This tells the story of Betsy Yoder. Jacob has left the Order and married and Englisher. Betsy is not quite sure which direction her life should take. She decides to open a bakery In Pinecraft and pours her heart and soul into it. If she is to be alone in this life, she decides that the bakery will be enough.
Former Amishman Thaddeus Zook's life takes a turn he was not expecting prompting Thad to go to Pinecraft in order to be with the one woman who has always loved him, his Grandmother. Working as a pastry chef in the English world, Thad has not exactly lived up to his Amish background.
As their two worlds collide in Pinecraft, will Betsy be able to trust again? Will Thad be able to give up the "English" life and return to his roots? Or will his past catch up to him and threaten his future?
This second book continues to offer the characters from that first that we all fell in love with. Henry is still doing his construction while Imogene is still taking her pictures. I hope in Book 3 we find out if Rochelle will find her true love? And just why did Emma decide to stay in Pinecraft?

This book tells the story of Betsy Yoder from the first book. After Jacob Miller left both her and the Order to marry Natalie, Betsy comes up with a new dream. Pouring all of herself into the dream, Betsy decides that she will not let another man into her life or her heart.
Thaddeus Zook left the Order many years ago. He has made a life in the English world as a Pastry Chef. This is an occupation that his Amish family cannot understand. When things go awry at the restaurant he was employed by in Ohio, Thad travels to the only family member who he knows will not shun him. But will his past catch up with him? Can he deny his growing feelings for Betsy? When his past collides with her future, Thad is put in the position of either leaving or to stop running. What will he do? How can he make it all work?
Lynette Sowell does a very good job of continuing the story of those in Pinecraft. Henry is still doing his construction while Imogene is still taking her pictures. I cannot wait for book 3 to continue and return to their lives. Will Rochelle find love? Why is Emma staying in Pinecraft?
