Book Review: The Haven



Spring brings new life, young love, and second chances to Stoney Ridge.

On a warm spring day, Sadie Lapp returns home to her quiet, unassertive life in Stoney Ridge after spending the winter in Ohio.

Gideon Smucker, an awkward schoolteacher, has been in love with Sadie since childhood and eagerly awaits her return.  But does Sadie feel the same about him?

Will Stoltz, a charming and impetuous college student, has been banished for a semester and sent to babysit endangered peregrine falcons nesting at the Lapp farm.  He'd rather be anywhere else....until he befriends Sadie.

As the hopes and ambitions of these three young people converge, life in Stoney Ridge may never be the same.

Once again, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher intrigues and delights with a story that explores the bonds of friendship, family, and true love in this captivating series.

Opening a book by Suzanne Woods Fisher is a little like coming home.  The characters wrap you in their warmth and you can almost smell the scent of the freshly baked bread and pies coming from the ovens of the Amish homes in the story.

Sadie has a story to tell in this book, but the other stories within the book are woven together quite neatly and leave you wishing for more once the story has ended.  This is the 2nd book in this series, you don't necessarily need to read the first book, but you'll want to just because it's such a great series!
