Love does extraordinary things at Eagle Hill -- The Revealing
I always count on a good story from Suzanne Woods Fisher -- and she certainly doesn't disappoint in The Revealing, the conclusion to her Inn at Eagle Hill series. Reading this book as a stand alone would probably work, but I think you will enjoy it more if you first read The Letters and The Calling.
How much drama can happen in one "plain" Amish community? Well, at Eagle Hill the answer is: plenty! Family member in jail. Missing trouble maker who has caused the family's legal problems. Unexpected guest with a special "delivery." Unidentified newspaper columnist. All of that and more thrown into a mix with several complicated romances. Nothing is easy about the "simple life" in Stoney Ridge.
Suzanne has given us a great cast of characters in this series, with particular ones highlighted at various times. The one who really stands out in this story is Naomi King, a fairly quiet, uncertain, but introspective young lady who seems to know just what is needed in a difficult situation. She is a woman who believes things like this:
“I don’t believe that all things that happen are good, but I do believe the Lord can make good come from even the worst things.” But Naomi is not sure that she will ever find the life and love she longs for. She and several other characters, though, have a surprise or two to be revealed before the story concludes.
And how could you not love a story with this as one of its shining truths: "Love does extraordinary things to people."
Thanks to Revell for providing a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book:
Love does extraordinary things to people . . .
In a single, impulsive act, Naomi King chooses to follow her heart into unfamiliar territory, jeopardizing all that she holds dear. If anyone finds out what she's up to, she's in for trouble. But when it comes to Tobe Schrock, Naomi believes it's worth it.
But it all comes crashing down when a young woman arrives at the Inn at Eagle Hill with an unexpected delivery for Tobe. Add a guest at the inn with a curious talent and a genealogist who is more interested in modern-day Schrocks than in old family trees, and evidence starts to mount that points to something sinister at work. Or someone.
In this riveting conclusion to The Inn at Eagle Hill series, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher pulls out all the stops with a fast-paced tale of deception, revelation, and romance.
