Product Description

Twenty-year-old Bethany Schrock is restless. Her love life has derailed, her faith hangs by a thread, and she is spending the incredibly hot summer days wading through a lifetime's accumulation of junk at the home of five ancient Amish sisters. About the only thing that holds her interest is the spirited and dangerously handsome Jimmy Fisher--and he seems bent on irritating her to no end.

When the sly old sisters and a guest at the Inn get Bethany involved in running the local soup kitchen and starting a community garden, she suddenly finds herself wondering, Shootfire! How did that happen? Despite her newfound purposefulness, a gnawing emptiness about a childhood mystery continues to plague her. Encouraged by Jimmy Fisher, she will seek out the answers she craves--and uncover a shocking secret that will break her heart, heal it, and point her to love.

    I dont want to spoil it for anyone, but let me say how sad I felt for Bethany when she finds out the truth about a part of her past. And how frightened she is until she discovers that shes ok.

    The little touches in the book are delightful I could imagine how frightened Bethany was when she found a trunk full of bones, but the explanation was so simple

    The addition of Geena and the teens from the group home created a bit of excitement especially concerning Jake, who kept turning up just like a bad penny.

    Suzanne is wonderful at showing how true events can affect families, and how God works in their lives, even when they cant see Him working. There are so many little incidents that come together for good.

    Please keep reading with me the next story isnt a paperback novel its a novella in ebook format. It features Will Stoltz, son of Delia and Charles Stoltz, from the first of the series, The Letters.

    Once again we are back with the characters from the first book of this series, The Letters. We also have the pleasure of meeting a few new ones. Life at The Inn at Eagle Hill is never boring.

    I was more than thrilled with the twists and turns that this book took me through. A secret is revealed for one of the characters in this book. One that causes great concern and rightfully so. Evil also rears its ugly head. A certain person is targeted with revenge and their very life could be changed if evil wins. I found this part very chilling.

    When a young woman arrives for a stay at The Inn at Eagle Hill will her faith in herself be shaken? With a time of rest will she find where God is leading her? Will she have an open heart and mind to listen and to follow Him?

    I must not forget to add that a Prodigal has come home; thinking all is well and finding that isn't the case. What will be the consequences of past decisions and actions?

    I highly recommend this book but be sure to read the first book in this series, The Letters.

    I can't wait to read The Revealing, the conclusion to this series. I must find out what happens to my beloved characters!

    The Calling by Suzanne Woods Fisher is another great book by Suzanne Woods Fisher. It is the second book in The Inn at Eagle Hill series. It is clean, all round good read.

    As you all know, I am intrigued by the Amish and appreciate their deep sense of community and commitment to one another and this story exemplifies this in a very real and strong way. I cannot tell you how or I'd reveal part of the mystery of the book.

    I really enjoyed getting to know Bethany's character better. I loved how she played hard to get with her "friend" Jimmy. :) She also displayed wisdom and how she learned from her past mistakes.

    The mystery and twists and turns surrounding Bethany's mother kept me guessing and wondering. I also cried buckets over the revelation of that whole story line.

    Another part of the Amish community I enjoy is the respect the younger have for the elderly. In this series, there is a group of five spinster sisters who stand out for their service and commitment to the community, but they also stand out for the way in which they care and interact with the younger generation. The younger in turn cares and respects them. It seems more rare than common in our society today.

    If you haven't guessed already, The Calling gets two thumbs up from me!

    Faith and Family Reviews received the book in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.

    Bethany is working to clean out the house of the five sisters home so they can host church. She thought the group of sisters where just old and liked to collects things but she soon finds out there is more to them then that. She is also still getting over the man she had seen, has up and disappeared and likely helped to ruin her father's business. Jimmy is someone she thought was immature and not worth her notice but as she gets to know him she finds herself attracted to him. While she is working to clean out the sisters home she learns they run a soup kitchen once a month and as she and more and more of her community help out each week they find themselves learning to see their neighbors in a new light.

    This is book two in the series. I have not read the first book yet this book can be read as a stand alone though you will have a better idea who people are if you read the first one as this is a continuing story. The author does a decent job bring the readers up to speed from the first book.

    What I liked: The author is well-known for her deeper plots and this book and series is no exception. The family is dealing with the backlash of a failed business. The father is dead and the brother has run off. There are a few characters telling this story. I like the complexity and how well the story comes together as the book progresses. I found all the characters quite likable.

    What I did not like: This book is good but the plot was a little slow at times. Fishers books always have a lot going on in them and it can take a little time to get all the subplots figured out and with a few characters telling the story I don't always feel like I get to know the main characters as well as I would like.

    Overall this was a good book and I am looking forward to the third book in the series to see how it all plays out. Towards the end I found myself more interested in the next book than how this book was going to finish up. If you're looking for a light quick read this book is not for you but if you like books with a strong story and some twists and turns than this is a good series for you. I would highly recommend going back and reading the first book though. You don't have to but it's the back story and I wonder had I read it first maybe this book would have been more enjoyable to me.
