Product Description

As Sadie Lapp steps off the bus in Stoney Ridge after being in Ohio for the winter, she faces a decision--one that goes against her very essence; yet how else can she protect a loved one?

Schoolteacher Gideon Smucker has been crazy about Sadie since boyhood. But his response to her surprising decision undermines his own reputation--and his relationship with Sadie.

Will Stoltz, a college student, finds himself at the Lapp farm as a guard for a pair of nesting Peregrine Falcons--courtesy of the Lancaster County Game Warden. Will needs to get his life back on track, but his growing friendship with Sadie threatens his plans. The lives of these three individuals intertwine, and then unravel as unexpected twists create ripples through the town of Stoney Ridge . . . and through Sadie's heart.

Publishers Weekly

Popular Amish romance novelist Fisher (The Choice) continues her Stoney Ridge Seasons series with a stand-alone tale focusing on Amos Lapp’s middle daughter, Sadie. Returning from Ohio where she has spent the winter with older sister Julia and her husband, Sadie picks up an unexpected traveling companion. Instead of the safety and support she expects from her Amish friends and family back home in Pennsylvania, Sadie bristles as hurtful perceptions are formed primarily based on gossip and innuendo rather than truth. She does, however, develop a confidence in Will Stotz, an intern for the county’s game warden who moves onto the Lapp farm to oversee two nesting falcons. Their relationship complicates Sadie’s relationship with Gideon Smucker, a local boy who has had his heart set on Sadie since they were children. Fisher’s style is light and engaging. Her setting may be a simple Pennsylvania Amish community, but the struggles of faith, trust, and forgiveness are common to a wide-ranging audience. Moral elements are so deftly woven into the plot that most readers will learn the lesson before realizing there is one. Agent: Joyce Hart. (Aug.) 2012 Reed Business Information

    Sadie Lapp has been in Berlin, Ohio shadowing an elderly Old Order Amish woman learning to be a healer and gets a sudden urge to return home. She doesn't know what is calling to her but she thinks it could be her daed's heart, he had a heart transplant not long ago, so she decides to surprise everyone and come home immediately.

    The family is very happy to see her but surprised at the same time. The bigger surprise is that she comes toting a baby boy in a basket. It doesn't take long for the rumor to get around the Stoney Ridge community, I mean M.K. only told a 'few' people. When Gideon Smucker finds out Sadie is home with a baby he's willing to stand beside her but his willingness to marry her makes her so mad she won't talk to him.

    Will Stoltz came to the Stoney Ridge area shortly before Sadie returned home and soon finds himself living in an old farmhouse on the Lapp property. He was sent there by his father because he got in trouble at medical school and right before he was to leave he got a DUI which leads to him getting into an illegal mess with his lawyer.

    Very good read, Suzanne didn't let me down and I'm looking forward to the next book, "The Lesson". This is a series that you should read in order so keep that in mind. I like Sadie's story and how she handles herself but there is one thing that she does need to remember, as we all do sometimes, 'Practice What You Preach'. It is always easier to see what someone else is doing wrong but we don't realize that we may be doing the same thing. There is a good ending to the story but I'm still left hanging on one or two things, so I'm off to start reading "The Lesson".

    When I began reading this, I honestly didn't care much for it. I found it boring, and I wasn't really connecting with the characters. But I felt I was also at a disadvantage since I did not read the first book in the series. Word of caution--it is better to read the first book in the series before reading this one, but as you will see, I absolutely fell in love with this book in spite of this oversight.

    About halfway through the book, I suddenly found myself drawn into this book, and it was all I could do to put it down. Sadie is an amazing heroine, and when the truth was discovered about the main situation in the book, I was amazed. I did not expect it. And the author continued to surprise me as the story went on with Gid and Will sparring for her affections.

    I cannot believe how much I have come to love Amish fiction, and Suzanne Woods Fisher is a master at it. The intricacies of the love stories, and the little surprises she delights in inserting throughout the writing truly captured and kept my attention.

    The best part of this book was the ending. No, not because it was done, but because you, as the reader, are left hanging. The ending is not assured. I can see it going several different ways. One love story is tied up, but the other is not. And I did not find myself upset or disconcerted. My initial thought was "I will have to read the next book!"

    The spiritual messages throughout the book are wonderfully woven into the framework of the story. It is the simple faith of the people that impresses me so much. And the spiritual journey of Will and his father could certainly speak to many who have left the church and wondering if they should go back. I was also glad to see that in every occurrence, the right thing was done.

    If you like clean Amish romances, this is definitely the book for you. Read the first in the series, and then read this second book, and I think you will connect with this book even more than I did.

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    I really enjoyed this book and picked it up as often as I could. It is one of those stories' that grabs you from the first page to the last page.

    Sadie Lapp returns home after spending the winter in Ohio with her sister and brother-in-law. She brings a surprise with her that causes tongues to wag in the community. This causes much distress for Sadie to think that people could actually think the worst about her.

    Mary Kate (MK) is up to being her same old self when it comes to spying on others and spreading gossip. I loved her in "The Keeper" and she is still one of my favorite characters.

    This is a heart warming story about God's grace and forgiveness. It is always easy to see other's that need to forgive but how often do we see it in ourselves? It's about doing the right thing. We find that God's love comes through once again.

    I can't wait to read book 3, The Lesson.

    Just finished reading "The Haven" and loved it. Sometimes you need to read a book to have an aha moment and this book provided that moment for me. I consider myself a pretty forgiving person but...it seemed I could forgive a big item but was disregarding the little things. So I will be working harder on that. I can't wait for the next book.
