The Letters: A Book Review
When widow Rose Schrock turns her Amish farmhouse into a bed and breakfast, she expects there might be problems. The reaction of her cantankerous mother-in-law for one. Disapproval from the church for another. But what she doesn't expect is that the guests at the Inn at Eagle Hill will spill their problems into her life and into her heart. She also never expects the kind of help and support she gets from Galen King, the quiet and rugged horse trainer next door. Love, Rose discovers, can bloom in the most unexpected ways.
With inspiration from a true story and her signature plot twists, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Stoney Ridge for a fresh story of simple pleasures and strong faith in a complex world.

I have been a long time fan of Suzanne Woods Fisher, so I am excited to share my thoughts with you about her most recent release, The Letters. If you are a fan of Amish Fiction, you will definitely want to pick this one up, or add it to your "to-be-read_ list! It was so good! From the very first pages, I felt that I was a part of life in Stoney Ridge. Galen and Rose were my favorite characters, although each person introduced in the book found a special place in my heart. The book was another reminder that our plans are not always what God wants for us and we need to be open to His ways and timing for our lives. It was also a fantastic reminder that through trials, we often find our greatest blessings.
Fisher does a great job at combining romance, Amish living, life lessons, and fiction to create a fantastic, quick read, perfect for your late summer/early Fall reading plans.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
