Book Blog Tour and Contest Information: The Haven by Suzanne Woods Fisher


My Review of The Haven by Suzanne Woods Fisher:
 
The Stoney Ridge Seasons series continues with The Haven, book two of the series, this time focusing on three main characters. Gideon Smucker is a teacher whose heart is taken by shy Sadie Lapp. Gideon tries to keep his feelings to himself and doesn’t want to appear too taken with her. He seems to find his voice in speaking to her by writing to her during the time she is away from Stoney Ridge. When she returns he discovers something new about her, something that looks as if it has changed her and her family’s lives forever. He wrestles with his feelings to decide if whether this big change in Sadie’s life will make him like her any less. To make the situation even more complicated a new man, Will has appeared since Sadie returned and it takes Gideon some time before he discovers who he is and why he is always around Sadie so much.

Reading The Haven brought back wonderful memories of reading the first Stoney Ridge Seasons book titled The Keeper. I learned that the Lapp family farm is famous for attracting rare birds; those birds also brought a large amount of tourists with them. The relationship between Sadie and Gideon always kept me wondering if anything could make it better. Sadie’s dad is recovering from the heart surgery he had in the first novel; which helped me to remember his son Menno who died in a tragic accident during the first novel; which is where his new heart came from. I loved it that Sadie saw the surprise she was given as a gift from God and that her family did a good job of accepting the surprise into their lives as well. The ending of the novel left me anticipating the release of book three of this Amish series.

 I recommend this book to Amish fiction lovers!

  1. Hi Jill!

    Thanks so much for reviewing "Haven"--I think you're going to enjoy M.K.'s story. "The Lesson" releases in a few months and starts off with a bang. Literally. :)

    Really appreciate having you on the blog tour for my books!

    Warmly, Suzanne
