Suzanne Woods Fisher is a bestselling author of Amish fiction and non-fiction, and a columnist for Christian Post and Cooking & Such magazine. The Waiting was a finalist for a 2011 Christy Award. The Choice and The Search have been finalists for Carol Awards. Amish Peace: Simple Wisdom for a Complicated World and Amish Proverbs: Words of Wisdom from the Simple Life were both finalists for the ECPA Book of the Year (2010, 2011).
Suzanne has a great admiration for the Plain people and believes they provide wonderful examples to the world. She has an underlying belief in her books–you don’t have to “go Amish” to incorporate many of their principles into your life: simplicity, living with less, appreciating nature, forgiving others more readily, trusting in God.
Joy In Our Journey's review ~ by Jan:
Bethany is living under the difficult stigma of a mother who abandoned her family. Not only that, but her father’s business has failed and he has died and all because of the man she thought was ‘The One’ was dishonest. Her step-mother’s inn has attracted a lady reverend who is recuperating after being fired from yet another church because she is a woman and she just cannot preach. Her younger sister has taken a job as an advice columnist for the newspaper and she is only 14. Can life get any more complicated?
It can because she has now undertaken the job of cleaning out the home of five sisters, who have not thrown out anything for at least the last 60 years. What a mess that is! She finds a trunk with not only one skull, but two!
Have I awakened your interest to the second book in Ms. Fisher’s new series The Inn at Eagle Hill, The Calling? I hope so because it is really a delightful, interesting book.
Oh, did I mention the Community Garden and the Soup Kitchen? They are there also, as is a really interesting young man named Jimmy. 'Nuf said, excellent book for an interesting read; I think that you will agree.
