The Winnowing Season releases in just THREE weeks! I’ve received my author copies, and in celebration, I’d like to share the first chapter and a giveaway of books one AND two in the Amish Vines and Orchards series to two winners!
Last week, I posted about the different types of heating stoves the Amish use to keep their homes warm through the winter. In The Winnowing Season, Rhoda is excited to rebuild her canning business in the new Amish settlement in Maine. After researching how the Amish start and run a business compared to how we as non-Amish start and run a small business, I’ve seen a pattern that at times gives them the upper hand in becoming a success and hanging on to it. At other times those Amish ways work against them—at least for a season.
While visiting an Amish friend one winter, I woke to the gentle creaking of old wooden steps, and I knew my dear friend was on her way to the cellar to add wood to the stove. Her husband was on a three-day hunt, and while he’s gone she’s diligent about maintaining the wood stove so her family stays warm throughout the night and no one shivers when crawling out of bed in the morning.
As a fun celebration for the day, I’d like to offer a giveaway! It will run from now until midnight tonight. The winners will be announced tomorrow.
THREE winners will receive an autographed copy of A Season for Tending AND The Winnowing Season, books one and two in my Amish Vines and Orchards series. Book three, For Every Season, will release this fall.
