The Waiting by Suzanne Woods Fisher Review

My interest in the Amish has grown over the course of many years. I used to live in Ohio and many times we would visit, Lehman's in Kidron, a low tech superstore of sorts that specializes in products used by the Amish community. I love reading about the Amish, trying to recreate Amish recipes, going to Amish markets to buy things and just imagining what it would be like to live like them. I also have a love of non-electric devices for my home and cooking with cast iron.

I received the book The Waiting by Suzanne Woods Fisher which is the second book in the Lancaster County Secrets series. Unfortunately I never received the first book, The Choice, so I have yet to read it. The Waiting proves to be a great stand alone book even if you aren't familiar with the story when you start reading. It is a great book that I couldn't put down. I love all the characters because they seem very genuine. The development of the story is great! I love how it took a different fork and kept me immersed the whole way. Our memories do indeed shape us and we should embrace our path as the characters in this book do. Jorie King, the main character of this book, turns her struggles into strengths throughout the book. I loved getting to know the King and Zook families! The surprise ending of this book will have you wanting for more. I can't wait for, The Search, the third book in this series!! I am hoping I get to review it too for you all here!

Product Description from the back of the book and
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, The Waiting is the second book in the LANCASTER COUNTY SECRETS series. Readers will find themselves transported into the world of the Amish and deeply invested in these wonderful characters.

I just received a postcard on this book today. I want to pick this up, but I have a few others to read first.
