Overview

Martha Yoder was chased away from her close-knit Amish community because of a hasty judgment handed down by the quilting group. Guilt of her misbehavior during one night of Rumspringa, in which she conceived her daughter, Alice, makes her let the kid rule her house.
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.

    This is the story of a young Amish woman who was forced to leave

    This is the story of a young Amish woman who was forced to leave her community because she became pregnant during her running around time. It tells of how the young mother is returned to her Amish community with a basket of revealing letters that she must deliver in order to accept the gift of an orchard that was willed to her. This book does NOT talk about Rape. The young mother lived in an area that had undesirable people living in it but it was because of her poor economic situation. This young mother was doing the best she could to raise her daughter on her own. She was not in to drugs or drinking. The book went on to tell how Martha turned things around & became part of her community again. I found the book enjoyable & I was rooting for Martha to make the right choices.

    ohhh, wow, you will love this story !!! Martha was judged by the Amish Quilting Bee ladies and forced to leave her faith, family and community when she became pregnant during her running around years. The "ringleader" of the self-appointed judges follows Martha and moves to Kentucky also. She dies and wills her home in Amish country to Martha but she has more surprises up her sleeve. She has a basket of notes that Martha must deliver to people in the community.
    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!

    worst ever...

    If you love Amish fiction, this is NOT for you. Very little of the Amish but losts of murder, rape, drug lords, etc. I was sorry that I bought the 2 books at the same time because I never would have purchased the second. Impossible to follow. Just AWFUL Unfortunate that I cant give zero stars.

    An Autumn Wind in Walnut Creek

    I have read many books of Sicily's and liked them. However this was not one of them. It was poorly written and didnt make a lot of scence to me throughout the whole book. This is not the typical Amish books that I have read. I didnt like it at all. I was dissappointed in the Author as she usually write about the Amish better. This book definitely didnt show it. VICKI

    This has to be the absolutely worst book I have ever tried to read, and I read hundreds of books each year. Grammar errors, spelling mistakes. Poor character development. Background of people changes for scene to scene. Lack of flow. Ridiculous word choices. Very immature vocabulary. Just can't think of one positive thing to say. Will not be buying more of this author's books.

    I've read several of this author's books and enjoyed each of them, this one as well. However, the story line did get confusing from time to time, there are big mistakes in continuity, errors in grammer and spelling. I haven't noticed this in other books I've read by Sicily Yoder. It's still a good read!

    Quie a disappointment!! Save your money!!!

    The story might have been good, in the hands of another writer. The poor sentence stucture, grammar and spelling were roadblocks to any possible enjoyment of this book,

    Great book , Martha was forced from her Amish community after she got pregnant during her running around time ,the time young people can choose if they want to join the Church after getting a taste of the outside world. Martha was a good girl but did some things that many young people would do .This is not about rape and so on as the one person said. I am guessing she did not read it are she was half asleep , and dreamed it !!!!. THIS IS A GOOD CHRISTIAN BOOK. I love Amish books ,and this is one of the best out there. You will not be sorry you bought it:-)

    Im a first time reader of Sicily Yoder An Autum Creek. Not knowing what to expect I was thrilled when I got into the book and starting reading. A wonderful story that makes you cry and laugh. A book that when you read will give you hope and see faith come through. I recommend this book for all ages.

    NO RAPE is in the book at all. STOP telling lies. Two scenes involving Drug Lords. Two scenes with murder. In South America, Plain people get martyred for their faith. Do your research before you start telling lies.
