The Waiting

by Suzanne Woods Fisher
Revell Publishing

"She was waiting for love--and found it in the most unexpected place.
Jorie King's life is on hold. She has been waiting for Ben Zook to return to Lancaster County. Waiting for him to settle down and join the church. Waiting to marry him.
But when news arrives that Ben has been killed, Jorie is devastated. She finds unlikely comfort in the friendship of his brother Caleb. Friendship ripens into love, and two broken hearts plan for a life filled with the promise of a fresh beginning--until their worlds are turned upside down.
With her realistic characters whose weaknesses develop into strengthens, Suzanne Woods Fisher offers a reading experience that rises above the others. You will love growing in spirit with these complex people living the simple life as The Waiting transports you into a world where things aren't as simple as they seem."

Loved this book!!  I could not put it down.  I have read a number of books based on the Amish and this is one of my favorites.  I liked the fact that it was OK for women to have an opinion.  In most of the Amish books I have read the men have the final say no matter what their wife thinks. 
I am excited to read the next book in the series.  I did read the first book and my review for that one is here. 
I liked this one a lot better then the first one.

*I was sent a free copy of this book to read and review.  I am not compensated for my honest review.

  1. Hi Collins family! I'm a little late dropping by...wanted to thank you for your wonderful review of "The Waiting!" So glad you enjoyed it--and I don't mind a bit that you liked it better than "The Choice." My hope is that I improve with every book I write.
    Thanks for being a part of the blog tour--and again, sorry for the delay in popping by. I was traveling during the tour and am just getting caught up.
    Warmly, Suzanne
