Upon a Spring Breeze By Kelly Irvin

After a devastating winter, a spring breeze promises more than new flowers.… It promises a new chance at love.
Bess Weaver, twenty and expecting her first child, is in the kitchen making stew for her beloved mann, Caleb, one minute, and the next she’s burying him after a tragic accident. Facing life as a young widow, Bess finds comfort only in tending the garden at an Englisch-owned bed and breakfast—even as she doubts that new growth could ever come after such a long winter.
Aidan tries to repress his guilt over his best friend Caleb’s death and his long-standing feelings for Bess by working harder than ever. But as he spends time with the young son his friend left behind, he seems to be growing closer to the boy’s beautiful mother as well.
When a close-knit group of widows in her Amish community step in to help Bess find her way back to hope, she begins to wonder if Gott has a future for her after all. Will she ever believe that life can still hold joy and the possibility of love?

New from Kelly Irvin! Upon a Spring Breeze, the first book in her Amish romance series, Every Amish Season, from Zondervan/HarperCollins Christian Publishing. The novel is the first in a four-book series that delves into the lives of four Amish women linked by life altering experiences that bring them together as wives, mothers, and grandmothers in the small town of Jamesport, Mo. Kelly Irvin is also the author of The Amish of Bee County series, which includes the critically acclaimed The Beekeeper's Son. Publishers Weekly called the first book in the series a beautifully woven masterpiece and Romantic Times Magazine called Kelly a storyteller extraordinaire. It was followed by The Bishop's Son and The Saddle Maker's Son, which is an ECPA bestseller.

Grief and tragedies and romance all in one book. And an Amish book at that.  Irvin has a way with words and her Amish books are always fresh stories not the same old one told over and over again.
Not a light read, it is an emotional read. Full of some well rounded characters. This is not a story that you will soon forget.
I was pleasantly surprised how mush I enjoyed this book from beginning to end.
I gave this book 4 stars. If you have not read one of Irvin's Amish books this is a good time to pick one up. This is book one in the new series An Every Amish Season.
I received  this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
