The Haven by Suzanne Woods Fisher(Review)

  • Paperback: 314 pages
  • Publisher: Revell (August 1, 2012)
  • ISBN-13: 978-0800719883

  • 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.

    My Review:
    This is the second book in the Stoney Ridge series and I liked it as much as the first. I recommend reading them in order because they have the same main characters and some of the plot lines are continued. They are Amish books but are well written and the plot is not super typical. The characters are great and stand out. I love Mary Kate, Sadie's younger sister, and her antics. There were several lol moments in the book along with some more serious issues. I really enjoyed reading this book and can't wait for the next book in the series to come out. Recommended. :)

    Suzanne Woods Fisher is the bestselling author of The Choice, The Waiting, The Search, and The Keeper, as well as nonfiction books about the Amish, including Amish Peace. She is also the coauthor of a new Amish children's series, The Adventures of Lily Lapp. Suzanne is the host of internet radio show Amish Wisdom and a columnist for Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazines. She lives in California.

    Available now wherever Revell/Baker books are sold.

    Thank you Donna at Revell/Baker for my review copy.
