The Haven by Suzanne Woods Fisher

The Haven
The Haven by Suzanne Woods Fisher

 About the Book: 
When Sadie Lapp steps off the bus in Stoney Ridge after being in Ohio for the winter, she is faced with a decision–one that goes against her very essence. Yet it’s the only way she can think of to protect a loved one.

Schoolteacher Gideon Smucker has been crazy about Sadie since boyhood. But his response to her surprising decision undermines his own reputation–and his relationship with Sadie.

College student Will Stoltz is spending the spring at the Lapp farm as a guard for a pair of nesting Peregrine Falcons–courtesy of the Lancaster County Game Warden. Will needs to get his life back on track, but his growing friendship with Sadie threatens his plans.

The lives of these three individuals intertwine, and then unravel as unexpected twists create ripples through the town of Stoney Ridge . . . and through Sadie’s heart.

Once again, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher intrigues and delights with a story that explores the bonds of friendship, family, and true love. Readers will enjoy every surprise in Sadie’s story as they search for the truth hidden within these pages.

Read Chapter 1

Meet Suzanne: 
Suzanne Woods Fisher’s interest in the Amish began with her grandfather, W.D. Benedict, who was raised Plain. Suzanne has a great admiration for the Plain people and believes they provide wonderful examples to the world. In both her fiction and non-fiction books, she has an underlying theme: You don’t have to “go Amish” to incorporate many of their principles–simplicity, living with less, appreciating nature, forgiving others more readily– into your life.

When Suzanne isn’t writing or bragging to her friends about her first new grandbaby (!), she is raising puppies for Guide Dogs for the Blind.

To Suzanne’s way of thinking, you just can’t take life too seriously when a puppy is tearing through your house with someone’s underwear in its mouth. Suzanne can be found on-line at:

My Take:

I have really enjoyed all the books that I have read by Suzanne
Woods Fisher and this one is no exception.  I was drawn into the story with the first chapter.  All of the characters are ones that you come to care about and worry about.  There is a bit of comical relief every once in a while also.  I like the way that all the characters have the same flaws that we do.  I think alot of times we think others are above us in different areas but Suzanne makes it perfectly clear that we all have areas we need to work on.  Like the way the Amish community jumps to some wrong conclusions when Sadie returns home with a special surprise.
This book isn't just an Amish romance either it has some mystery and suspense wrapped into it.

If you have enjoyed Amish fiction in the past I think you will enjoy this book.  Also I think you will enjoy it if you just like a good book because this certainly is a good book. Check out the contest below .
