I received this book from Litfuse Publicity Group for no charge for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own!
When Sadie Lapp steps off the bus in Stoney Ridge after being in Ohio for the winter, she is faced with a decision–one that goes against her very essence. Yet it’s the only way she can think of to protect a loved one.
Schoolteacher Gideon Smucker has been crazy about Sadie since boyhood. But his response to her surprising decision undermines his own reputation–and his relationship with Sadie.
College student Will Stoltz is spending the spring at the Lapp farm as a guard for a pair of nesting Peregrine Falcons–courtesy of the Lancaster County Game Warden. Will needs to get his life back on track, but his growing friendship with Sadie threatens his plans.
The lives of these three individuals intertwine, and then unravel as unexpected twists create ripples through the town of Stoney Ridge . . . and through Sadie’s heart.
Once again, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher intrigues and delights with a story that explores the bonds of friendship, family, and true love. Readers will enjoy every surprise in Sadie’s story as they search for the truth hidden within these pages.
The Haven is the second book in The Stoney Ridge Seasons series by Suzanne Woods Fisher. Those that know me I am a HUGE fan of Amish Fiction and Suzanne Woods Fisher and The Haven did NOT disappoint! I enjoyed the first book from this series so I was very excited to have the opportunity to read the next one. In The Haven we get to come back to spend time with the Lapp family again. Suzanne Woods Fisher writes a beautiful story full of love,laughter, and family. The character in her story are captivating and so real that they truly feel like friends. I found myself laughing and crying with the Lapp Family again in this book. Suzanne Woods Fisher writes with authority about the ways of the Amish, Ohio, bird watching, and the ins and outs of protecting endangered birds. I found myself pulled into this story from the start. This story has so much to offer and leaves you wanting more. She writes of the importance of prayer, faith and hope in God's Plan. She focuses on self esteem in one's self, forgiveness and repentance. Then there is
the big issue of gossiping and the the damage and pain it has on everyone. I truly enjoyed this latest book in this series and look forward to the rest. If you are a fan of Amish Fiction, I highly recommend this book and this series.
