Product Description

Rose Schrock is a plain woman with a simple plan. Determined to find a way to support her family and pay off her late husband's debts, she sets to work to convert the basement of her Amish farmhouse into an inn. While her family, especially her cranky mother-in-law, is unhappy with Rose's big idea, her friend and neighbor, Galen King, supports the decision and he helps with the conversion. As Rose finalizes preparations for visitors, she prays. She asks God to bless each guest who stays at the Inn at Eagle Hill. As the first guest arrives and settles in, Rose is surprised to discover that her entire family is the one who receives the blessings, in the most unexpected ways. And she's even more surprised when that guest decides to play matchmaker for Galen King.

    I am a huge fan of author Suzanne Woods Fisher. This book did not disappoint me at all. I really enjoyed getting to know the characters in this book. It wasn’t hard to fall in love with them, even the sharp tongue Mammi Vera.

    What caught my interest right from the start was the back and forth between the Amish world and the English world. Both worlds had plenty of obstacles to overcome.

    We know that God allows us to go through illnesses, heart breaks, and devastation. We also know that God has promised to go through them with us.

    There are choices to be made, people to love, pasts to leave behind and forgiveness to extend.

    This is a book that will tug on your heartstrings and allow you to dream about a place called, The Inn at Eagle Hill.

    I highly recommend that you pick up a copy today. You will be glad you did!

    Once I was able to get into this book it was a pleasure. There are several points of view that the narration switches between, but once I was able to keep it all straight I enjoyed the multiple perspectives. Each character is so different and their personalities, thoughts, and struggles were portrayed with such individual voices and had a depth of feeling. The plot moves along somewhat leisurely, which is why I think switching between perspectives helps rather than hinders the storytelling. It was interesting how each life was intertwined and the ending was wonderful and sweet.

    “The Letters” is a MUST READ! What a wonderful story! What a tremendous blessing! What a relief to find out how wrong I was about the book.

    I don’t know why I had such a hard time getting into the book…especially since I had absolutely no trouble getting into “The Calling” – the second book in the series...So maybe it was just me.

    Suzanne Woods Fisher has a particular talent for getting a reader attached to the characters. I was so hooked, I found myself worrying and being frightened right along with them. I could feel the confusion and determination as if it were my own.

    I have been so blessed by this book and by the second book in the series (review to come in a few days) and I find myself on pins and needles, waiting for the next one!

    When we begin our story, the characters are all a little scattered and a lot stressed (maybe that’s why I felt so frustrated myself…I was already sucked in, I just didn’t realize it yet). As we go on, we get to see things go from bad to worse before we begin to see God’s plan emerge. And when it does, there are so many little things that suddenly make sense in a way that they never could have without the knowledge that God is in command and his plan will move us in the direction we need to go even when we don’t see it ourselves.

    Suzanne Woods Fisher has an exceptional talent for showing us all these loose threads that we could never imagine weaving together… until we begin to see the bigger picture. Suzanne has indeed blessed her and I am exceedingly glad to be blessed myself by reading her wonderful books!

    Well, Suzanne Woods Fisher has done it yet again! She is one of my favorite Amish authors, and indeed this book did not disappoint. It has everything that readers have come to know and love in great Amish fiction:
    1. A look into the daily lives of the Amish
    2. The Old Ways versus the New Ways
    3. Great romance (that is clean)
    4. A deep-seated faith in God

    These elements are the things I so appreciate about this author and her writings. I love the Stoney Ridge series, and this takes that to an entirely new level. Okay, so maybe it's sappy at times, but it is also real. When the Amish deal with the struggles of the outside world, there are some difficult issues that are raised. However, God is in control, and He permeates every nook and cranny of this novel. The reader will find a recipe in the back (what is an Amish book without recipes, right?). The book is never "preachy," but it is solid. I can recommend this book to everyone, and I greatly anticipate the next installment.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    The Letters

    This review gives more insight than just "it was/wasn't a good book" or "this is/isn't a must read". While I try not to give too much away, sometimes it's difficult to write about the story and have it not be revealing.

    Suzanne Woods Fisher fans get to visit Stoney Ridge again with her new series, The Inn at Eagle Hill. The Letters is the first book in this series. I didn’t read the Stoney Ridge Season series so all the characters are new to me.

    When Mennonite Rose Schrock and her family moved into her Amish mother-in-law Vera’s house she didn’t know she would be a widow in the months to follow. After her husband Dean died she needed to support her family. She decided to realize a dream and open a Bed & Breakfast, which became named The Inn at Eagle Hill.

    Sixty year old Delia Stoltz had not planned to be a guest at Rose’s Bed & Breakfast; she went there on a whim. But it proved to be what she needed and more. Delia needed to heal her body from surgery and her heart from her husband’s unfaithfulness.

    Rose is a loving and caring mother to her five children. Tobe and Bethany are step children but she treats them as her own. Tobe has left home. Bethany is nineteen years old and ready to marry Jake Hertler, her boyfriend from York County. Mim is thirteen and likes to learn facts about anything and everything. Sam and Luke and younger and enjoy being in a constant state of motion. They all are still trying to get over Dean’s death and how he died.

    Rose is very caring toward her mother-in-law Vera, who is anything but easy to be around. Vera has been diagnosed with having mini-strokes and is having physical and mental issues. Vera wants nothing more than her family to get back to its Amish roots.

    Next-door neighbor, Galen King, has really helped Rose and her family since her husband passed away. Galen has never been social and is perceived by the community as unapproachable. Rose only sees him and a gentle and kind man. He’s also a good example for her younger sons who “help” him with his horses.

    I like how God caused Rose and Delia’s lives to intertwine and in the process so many things are worked out according to his plans – all of which you’ll have to read on your own because too much would have to be revealed about the story. There is actually more than one set of letters going on which I thought was interesting. I liked how the author showed how people and situations aren’t always as they seem. “Don’t judge a book by it’s cover” can really be proven true in this story. This is an enjoyable story because the characters and their individual issues are situations are realistic. I read The Letters in one day. I look forward to the next book in this series to see where it takes Rose, her family, and The Inn at Eagle Hill.

    I received a free copy of this book from Revell Publishing and The Christian Manifesto in exchange for my honest review.
