Publisher's Summary

From bestselling author Petra Durst-Benning comes a sweeping emotional story of courage, triumph, and love against all odds in nineteenth-century Germany.
After a long and trying journey from her home, Hannah arrives at a charming village nestled in the foothills of the Swabian Mountains, eager to find Helmut Kerner, a traveling seed merchant she loved and lost. Enchanted by the glorious wildflowers and thriving harvests stretching as far as the eye can see, Hannah feels less like an outsider with each passing hour, until she meets Seraphine, an ethereally beautiful dreamer engaged to be married to Helmut, the father of Hannah's unborn child.
Desperate to win back Helmut's affections, Hannah gets to work and quickly discovers a passion for the seed trade, and with every change of season comes a change of heart. Can Hannah and Seraphine put aside their differences to find a way to work together, or will Hannah and her child be forced to leave this place she has come to love?

Wish there had been a bit more.

The Seed Woman by Petra Durst Bening is another good story from this author. Having read all of her previous offerings available on Amazon for Kindle, I was looking forward to this one. I was not disappointed until the end which finished somewhat abruptly. I would have liked a better wrap up with a bit more of the present/future of Serefine and Valentin given. Too much is left to your imagination at the end -- 'Do they make it or not?' And, what happens to Margarite? I guess we'll never really know unless Miss Durst includes these characters in a future story. I give this one four and a half stars.

Couldn’t finish

It’s a boring book in the beginning then it gets better then it gets worse! Probably only book ever listened to that I just could not listen to anymore, too wordy and could have told the story without so many chapter. Can not recommend .
