Book Tour The Waiting, by Suazanne Woods Fisher

Waiting, The: A Novel (Lancaster County Secrets)

The Waiting is the second book in the Lancaster County Secrets series. I have not book the first book, The Choice but I don't think you need to read these in any particular order. I did not feel as though I was missing anything, the books stand alone.

Jorie King has been waiting, and waiting for Ben Zook to return home from fighting overseas, when she learns of his death she is devastated.  Not only has Ben died, but her long time friend MaryAnn dies of cancer.  Jorie is on the verge of switching her apron from white to black, a sure sign that she never intends to marry.  In the middle of her confusion she begins teaching in the small one room Amish schoolhouse which tends to be comedic at times.

Caleb is lost without MaryAnn and his brother Ben, left alone to raise his young brother as well as his daughter he gets a bit testy when well intended relatives decide it's high time he remarries.  Caleb endures a stream of Saturday night dinner with eligible women and begins to realize he may do better if he takes matters into his own hands.

Now of course, there are secrets to be revealed which turn a few lives upside down and add to the spirit of the story!

I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others, once again we learn that the Amish really aren't as far removed from us as you would think, and Suzanne Woods Fisher does not disappoint her readers!

  1. Hi Lulu!
    Thanks for your wonderful review of "The Waiting!" Glad you pointed out the comedic aspects of the schoolroom...some of those were actual events from my grandfather's one-room schoolhouse! Hope you get a chance to read "The Choice." You'll see Esther as a grown woman! ~Suzanne Fisher
