Bestselling Author Delivers the Intrigue and Romance Fans Crave

The Stoltzfus family faces serious problems, both in the church and at home. Everyone in the community expects minister David Stoltzfus to fix things--fast. But David doesn't work fast. He prefers to wait for God to work in individual hearts. However, even he is left wondering if the solution to their most pressing problem might be a Quieting.

When David's mother arrives, uninvited, more upheaval is in store. She has matchmaking plans for everyone in the family, including David and her eligible granddaughters--and especially for David's niece Abigail. When Abigail stumbles onto a curious connection during her genealogical research, it could help David solve one problem--but will it create another?

    The Quieting is the second book in The Bishop's Family series and I think it's best to read the books in order. Events that occur in The Imposter carry over into this book and will make more of an impact if a reader has the full background, which includes an extensive cast of characters.

    I love the way Fisher spins a tale. It's so easy to slip into the story and lose myself in the fascinating details of life in Stoney Ridge. Such a host of characters who make up the close-knit Amish community! The whole story is told through multiple viewpoints, bringing together diverse plot lines in an impactful way.

    This is so much more than Abigail and Dane's love story and I have to confess that patriarch, David Stoltzfus, longsuffering widower with an engaging brood of daughters (and one son) continues to steal my heart. Recently appointed as minister, he struggles with some weighty church matters as he tries to balance not only family matters but a fledgling romance as well.

    Fisher has liberally peppered her story with Amish sayings and I think my favourite is "There's a lid for every pot." And that certainly applies to awkward Abigail whose serious nature and practical mind tend to alienate people. But not Dane. He has a gift for understanding the deeper roots that prompt behaviour. He pursues Abigail with a tender determination that surprises everyone. Including this reader.

    A story full of love and laughter, angst and hope. And the enduring love of family.

    In this second book in The Bishops Family series we wait for Bishop Freeman Glick to do the right thing and step down. And we wait. He is a spiteful, arrogant one, that Bishop!

    Davids mother, Tillie Yoder Stoltzfus, and his nieces, Laura and Abigail pay the family an unexpected visit. Poor David! His mother decided that he needed her help to get his life back in order. Abigail went along because she was obsessed with finishing the Glick family tree for her ill father. Tillies real reason for bringing Abby as they called her, though she always corrected them, along was to find her a husband. Abby was not outgoing so, of course, she needed help in that department.

    Read this well written story and find out if Freeman ever humbles himself or if the church has to take matters into their own hands. What of David and Birdy? Did Abby get the information she needed? Dont forget Katrina, Davids unwed pregnant daughteroh my that didnt sit well with Tilly!

    Thank you Suzanne Woods Fisher for another wonderful read. I cant wait to read The Devoted!

    Suzanne Woods Fisher continues the Amish suspense that began in The Imposter. David Stoltzfus has patiently waited, hoping for Bishop Freeman Glick to repent of the wrong that he did in the previous book. Meanwhile, Davids mother comes to Stoney Ridge from Ohio for an extended visit so she can fix all the problems going on in Davids family. Referred to as Mammi the Meddler behind her back by most of the family, she thinks she has all the answers. Quite often, the problem she is trying to fix is not really a problem and usually is not really any of her concern. However, she is a determined lady. At heart, she is a good woman but is simply misguided by her own sense of how things should be done. Abigail and Laura, two of Davids nieces, travelled with Mammi from Ohio. Abigail has a very different type of personality from almost everyone else in the story. She is on a crusade of sorts to finish a genealogy that her father had started working on for someone in Stoney Ridge. Between trying to avoid Mammis matchmaking efforts on her behalf and trying to find a way to get through the brick wall that surrounds the genealogy she is working on, she is constantly creating a mess or getting in the middle of someone elses mess. Multiple stories are playing out within the framework of the main story concerning the efforts to bring the bishop to his senses. Several of the stories also involve romance and a few other entertaining situations. I recommend this book to everyone who loves good Amish romance.

    Suzanne Woods Fisher has long been one of my favorite authors of Amish fiction. She has a knack for using interesting situations in the context of an Amish setting. This time around she uses the topic of genealogical research.

    Abigail Stoltzfus has joined her father in his research endeavors. Unfortunately for her, her mother and grandmother think she needs to settle down and get married. In order to achieve that her grandmother has insisted she accompany her to Stoney Ridge.

    Stoney Ridge is in the midst of it's own controversies. Bishop Glick and minister David Stoltzfus continue to see things differently and the tension in the community is mounting. Unfortunately Abigail is David's niece and the only eligible bachelor seems to be Dane Glick who is from the bishop's family.

    As events unfold it looks as if there is going to be a quieting among the people. I found this to be especially interesting. I've read many stories about shunning and banning but this is the first I've read about a quieting. A quieting is when a church leader is removed and it is a very serious and solemn event that grieves the entire community.

    Fisher explores how misplaced pride really does lead to destruction. Not only for the individual but for the community. Once again this is a solid book that is both entertaining and introspective. If you like Amish fiction with more of a contemporary flair I think you will enjoy this book.

    I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
