The Calling by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Book Summary(from Amazon)

Twenty-year-old Bethany Schrock is restless. Her love life has derailed, her faith hangs by a thread, and she is spending the incredibly hot summer days wading through a lifetime's accumulation of junk at the home of five ancient Amish sisters. About the only thing that holds her interest is the spirited and dangerously handsome Jimmy Fisher--and he seems bent on irritating her to no end.

When the sly old sisters and a guest at the Inn get Bethany involved in running the local soup kitchen and starting a community garden, she suddenly finds herself wondering, Shootfire! How did that happen? Despite her newfound purposefulness, a gnawing emptiness about a childhood mystery continues to plague her. Encouraged by Jimmy Fisher, she will seek out the answers she craves--and uncover a shocking secret that will break her heart, heal it, and point her to love.

My Thoughts:

This is the second book in The Inn at Eagle Hill series. Although reading the books in order is always my first choice, you can read this book as a stand alone. I know you will want to read more when you are done with this!

I love how Suzanne Woods Fisher can create a wonderfully written book with many twists and end up with something that leaves you wanting to know more. I love how the characters draw you in and bring you into their lives. I found myself relating to each one at some point in the story. I love Bethany's journey to find truth and a reconnect of faith in her life. We can learn about how the simple life of the Amish can help during the struggles of life and help us lean on what's important.

This shows an inside look at volunteering, connecting and being able to move into the future and leaving the past behind. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys a good, clean read with some twists and turns along the way.

Disclosure: I received a print copy of the book in order to do my review. My reviews are honest and my opinions are my own.
