Book Review: The Letters

Suzanne Woods Fisher Invites Readers Back to Stoney Ridge in New Series
With her signature plot twists combined with gentle Amish romance, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites readers back to Stoney Ridge for fresh stories of simple pleasures despite the complexity of life. Fisher's tale of God's providence and provision will delight her fans and create many new ones. Welcome to the Inn at Eagle Hill.

Rose Schrock is a plain woman with a simple plan. Determined to find a way to support her family and pay off her late husband's debts, she sets to work to convert the basement of her Amish farmhouse into an inn. While her family, especially her cranky mother-in-law, is unhappy with Rose's big idea, her friend and neighbor, Galen King, supports the decision and he helps with the conversion. As Rose finalizes preparations 
for visitors, she prays. She asks God to bless each guest who stays at the Inn at Eagle Hill. As the first guest arrives and settles in, Rose is surprised to discover that her entire family is the one who receives the blessings, in the most unexpected ways. And she's even more surprised when that guest decides to play matchmaker for Galen King.

Suzanne Woods Fisher is the bestselling author of The Choice, The Waiting, The Search, The Keeper and The Haven, as well as nonfiction books about the Amish, including Amish Peace. Her interest in the Anabaptist cultures can be directly traced to her grandfather, who was raised in the Old Order German Baptist Brethren Church in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. Suzanne is a Christy Award finalist and a Carol Award finalist. She is the host of internet radio show Amish Wisdom and a columnist for Christian Post and Cooking &; Such magazines. She lives in California.

Rose Schrock, what a woman.  We all know that for the most part Amish women have a lot of patience, and a lot of tolerance, but with a mother-in-law like hers, Rose must have a double dose!  Her strength in that area alone made her a hero in my eyes!

Not only does Rose deal with her mother-in-law, but also with suspicions about the death of her husband, problems with people being shorted out of their investments and a missing son.  

I loved how the plot in this story was so different than any other Amish story I have read it was really quite refreshing and a joy to read.  Suzanne Woods Fisher has written another keeper!
