The Waiting by Suzanne Woods Fisher {book review & tour}

About The Waiting:

Book 2 in The Lancaster Secrets collection and hot on the heals of the best-selling The Choice, The Waiting, a stand alone story, is a compelling page turner. Jorie King has been waiting for Benjamin Zook to return home to Lancaster County so they can marry. When news arrives that Ben has been killed, Jorie finds comfort in the friendship of his brother Caleb. That friendship ripens into love, and it seems that they are meant to be together. But when the unexpected happens, their worlds are turned upside down once more. Will Jorie trust God to lead her into the arms of a new man?
A multifaceted story about complex people living the simple life. Readers will find themselves transported into the world of the Amish and deeply invested in these wonderful characters.

My Thoughts:

I wrote a book review back in February on the first book in The Lancaster Secrets series by Susan Woods Fisher, a book I couldn’t bear to put down. And with that being said the second book in this series “The Waiting” doesn’t disappoint in the least bit being just as good if not better!

I took a lot of this book and really enjoyed the sense of community portrayed in this story. Right now our church is really focused on reaching out to others not just in our own body but in the community around us as it has been displayed it in a numerous ways through The Waiting. I say let even that be a challenge to us all. To look beyond our own family and friends but to our neighbors around us with expecting nothing in return for doing a good deed.

Many traits are shown and displayed out this book and maybe that’s why I tend to love the series that much more. I love that the characters are real and the story doesn’t stray from that fact with God all things are possible and will work out for the good for those that love and chose to serve him. This book gets two thumbs way up.  Thank you Suzanne for another great book!

    Hi Erin!
    Loved, loved, loved your review of “The Waiting!” You caught the message–that this can be our way of life, too. We don’t need bonnets and buggies to incorporate many Amish principles into our lives! Thank you so much!

    Hope your pregnancy ends up smooth-and-easy over the next two months! My daughter just had a little boy (her first…our first grandchild). So much fun! So little sleep!

    Thanks for participating in the blog tour, too.

    Warmly, Suzanne
