      I enjoyed the slightly different take on the Amish,a more modern view if you will. In fact I selected it for my Lit-n-Latte group and we will be discussing it soon. I have not read the other two in the series, but will when I have the chance. Fisher tells a good story and is always worth reading.

      Just as in the first book of this series "Lancaster County Secrets", I found this book delightful and unpredictable. Every time I thought something was happening, things changed and all is not as it appeared a few minutes ago. This is NOT the typical predictable Amish Fiction!

      I truly LOVE the way this writer presents her stories. As in book one, there were several places where I had to just laugh out loud! Her imagination, the genuineness of her characters, and the variety in her plots are wonderful. If you like Amish Fiction, you will love Suzanne's books. She is fast becoming my favorite! I also LOVE a happy ending, and I was not disappointed with this story.

      I recommend this for all ages - there are wonderful lessons to be learned here! I can't wait to get into book #3! I bought mine as a set at a great price. Give yourself a treat and get this trilogy, you will not be disappointed!

      I got started reading Amish stories about 6-7 yrs ago when my aunt loaned me a book her brother gave her. I've been hooked since. Every time a new one comes out I try to buy it. I have a very large library now and it will continue to grow as new books get written.......I loan them to my relatives to enjoy as well.

      Sales of Amish fiction continue to soar. The apparent simplicity of the Amish lifestyle is a welcome escape from our uncertain times. A new author in this genre is Suzanne Woods Fisher. The Waiting is her second in a series called Lancaster County Secrets. The Waiting is actually a prequel to her first book, The Choice, which she wrote secretly on an antiquated computer. Her interest in the Anabaptist faith stems from her grandfather who was raised in the Old Order German Baptist Brethren Church.

      This inspirational fiction novel is set during the 1960s in the Amish community of Lancaster County, PA. The country is embroiled in the Vietnam War. This courageous book, set apart from mainstream Amish fiction, steps away from emphasizing the simplistic, insular lifestyle of the Amish. In The Waiting, we are confronted with prejudice, vandalism and mental illness. Women have a voice. Outsiders enter the community and insiders leave. Surprises and dilemmas abound with spiritual relevance.

      I found the story somewhat predictable until the author gave us some unexpected events in the last third of the book. I questioned the wisdom of placing an important plot twist in the back cover description. However, Ms. Fisher's characters are endearing and kept me involved. Main character, Jorie King, is a creative teacher with an incisive understanding of children. "Animal tracks are the oldest writing on earth," she tells her students. I especially enjoyed insightful thirteen-year-old Ephraim and his dealings with the cougar.

      Many characters are expectant in The Waiting, but God makes everything right for them in His time.
