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 isnâ€™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 canâ€™t wait to read The Revealing, the conclusion to this series. I must find out what happens to my beloved characters!

Second in a series and can't wait for the next book. You feel you are in an Amish world. Love the descriptions, smells, and emotions.

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 Iâ€™d reveal part of the mystery of the book.
I really enjoyed getting to know Bethanyâ€™s character better. I loved how she played hard to get with her â€œfriendâ€ Jimmy. :) She also displayed wisdom and how she learned from her past mistakes.
The mystery and twists and turns surrounding Bethanyâ€™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 havenâ€™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 fatherâ€™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 donâ€™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 youâ€™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 donâ€™t have to but itâ€™s the back story and I wonder had I read it first maybe this book would have been more enjoyable to me.

Ohh but I couldn't wait for this book to come out. Authors and Publishers you should know that it is a torture to wait several months from book to book to see what new is happening with our favorite characters.
Jimmy's love story was long in coming, I already thought it won't happen, but finally here it is. but just as surprising is the thriller/mystery part of this book. Normally they are intense and sweet but less scary. "skeletons in the closet" - expression comes to life in this book. Sweet old sisters have quite a few bitter secrets. I loved this surprising turn of events.
Dear reader, you enjoy the residents of Stoney Ridge? You miss some Amish very complecated love lives and deep secrets? here Mrs Fisher brings it all to life with some great twists.
Read, reconnect, laugh, wonder, and enjoy to your content this story.
