81rzwiTHXmL__SL1500_

There is just something about Suzanne Woods Fisher’s writing that draws me in. I took the opportunity to read her latest book, The Calling through Netgalley. This is the second book in The Inn at Eagle Hill series.

Suzanne takes the reader back to the quaint community of Stoney Ridge. There are several familiar characters as well as some new faces. This book centers primarily around the character of Bethany Schrock. She is trying to pick up the pieces of her life after Jake Hertzler shattered her heart when he left. She is working for five elderly Amish sister to try and go through their things and straighten their home to keep her hands and mind busy. These sisters are full of secrets and Bethany finds herself helping them in numerous ways throughout the summer. She also uncovers more about her mother who left when Bethany was very young. Will discovering these secrets bring her hurt or healing?

As usual, Suzanne takes the reader on a wild ride with lots of unexpected surprises. I would definitely recommend this wonderful book to pick up and read on a cold, snowy day.

The Letters – Book Review

I have another great book that I would like to share with you today, The Letters by Suzanne Woods Fisher.

The main character in The Letters, Rose Schrock has had a difficult life. Through many trials and tragedies, she has found herself trying to be a single-mom to four children, take care of her farm and aging mother-in-law and provide for the family. The burdens she bears herself.

In the process of “righting” wrongs, Rose decides to open an Amish bed and breakfast, utilizing their basement with a private entrance. This brings Delia Stoltz into the Schrock family’s lives. She is dealing with several of her own personal issues and needs a quiet retreat. The Eagle Hill Inn is just the answer.

The characters and situations in The Letters are so dynamic and engaging. Suzanne Woods Fisher has an incredible way of drawing the reader into her novels. This is why I keep returning to her books. I highly recommend The Letters.
