About the book:

Phoebe Starbuck has always adjusted her sails and rudder to the whims of her father. Now, for the first time, she’s doing what she wants to do: marrying Captain Phineas Foulger and sailing far away from Nantucket. As she leaves on her grand adventure, her father gives her two gifts, both of which Phoebe sees little need for. The first is an old sheepskin journal from Great Mary, her highly revered great-grandmother. The other is a “minder” on the whaling ship in the form of cooper Matthew Mitchell, a man whom she loathes.

Soon Phoebe discovers that life at sea is no easier than life on land. Lonely, seasick, and disillusioned, she turns the pages of Great Mary’s journal and finds herself drawn into the life of this noble woman. To Phoebe’s shock, her great-grandmother has left a secret behind that carries repercussions for everyone aboard the ship, especially her husband the captain and her shadow the cooper. This story within a story catapults Phoebe into seeing her life in an entirely new way–just in time.

In this brand-new series, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher brings her signature twists and turns to bear on a fascinating new faith community: the Quakers of colonial-era Nantucket Island.

5star

As always, Suzanne Woods Fisher has written an exceptional novel that pulls you right in and doesn’t let go until the last page. . . where you find yourself wishing there was more. I personally never want Suzanne’s books to end. Even though she often deals with difficult subjects and a rough journey for the reader, who feels as if they are the character for a time, each story is a journey well-worth taking!

Don’t miss this one!

Here’s a bit more about Phoebe’s Light:

The story is filled with twists grounded in generations of family history. Fisher weaves together a pleasing romance that sets a high standard for future series installments.

An original, engaging, and impressively entertaining novel from beginning to end.

Fisher’s focus on a new faith group, the Quakers of colonial-era Nantucket Island, offers a fresh take on early America that history buffs will relish.

If you want a book that will sweep you up and take you away, this is the one. Word of warning – you will not be able to put it down so be prepared to stay up late to finish it!

Inspired by true events, this deeply layered novel gives a glimpse into the tumultuous days of prerevolutionary Pennsylvania through the eyes of two young, determined, and faith-filled women.

Beautiful and winsome, Betsy Zook never questioned her family’s rigid expectations, nor those of devoted Hans, but then she never had to. Not until the night when she’s taken captive in a surprise Indian raid. During her captivity, Betsy faces brutality and hardship, but also unexpected kindness. She draws strength from native Caleb, who encourages her to find God in all circumstances. She finds herself torn between her pious upbringing and the intense new feelings this compelling man awakens within her.

Handsome and complex, Hans is greatly anguished by Betsy’s captivity and turns to Tessa Bauer for comfort. Eagerly, Tessa responds, overlooking troubling signs of Hans’s hunger for revenge. When Betsy is finally restored to the Amish, have things gone too far between Hans and Tessa?

Inspired by true events, The Return is a deeply layered novel gives a glimpse into the tumultuous days of pre-revolutionary Pennsylvania through the eyes of two young, determined, and faith-filled women.

 

BOOK REVIEW | SPOTLIGHT ON The Devoted by Suzanne Woods Fisher

 

I cannot believe the series is over now…

I may cry.

Oh well… I can always hope for more. It could happen.

After all, Suzanne brought us back to Stoney Ridge once already!

The Devoted does not disappoint. It is just as wonderful as books 1 and 2 – a beautiful addition to the series: The Bishop’s Family and to Suzanne’s library of exceptional novels!

READ IT!

I guarantee you won’t be sorry!

And don’t miss all of Suzanne’s other books. Each and every one is a gem, well worth a read… and a second and third read. Each one is a valuable addition to your own library.

Here’s a bit more about The Devoted from Revell:

Fan Favorite Suzanne Woods Fisher Offers Readers Tender Romance, Humor, and Plenty of Surprises

Bright, curious, and restless, Ruthie Stoltzfus loves her family but is stuck in a sea of indecision about her future: Should she stay Amish? Or should she leave? She’s done all she can to prepare to go–passed the GED, saved her money–but she can’t quite set her journey into motion.

Patrick Kelly is a young man on a journey of his own. He’s come to Stoney Ridge to convert to the Amish and has given himself thirty days to learn the language, drive a buggy, and adapt to “everything Plain.” Time, to Patrick, is of the essence. Every moment is to be cherished, especially the hours he spends with Ruthie, his Penn Dutch tutor.

Ruthie’s next-door neighbor and cunning ex-boyfriend, Luke Schrock, is drawn to trouble like a moth to a flame. Rebellious, headstrong, defiant, Luke will do anything to win Ruthie back–“anything”–and Patrick Kelly is getting in his way.

Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites readers back to Stoney Ridge for a story of dreams deferred and hopes fulfilled–complete with Fisher’s signature twists that never fail to leave readers delighted

BOOK REVIEW | SPOTLIGHT ON The Quieting by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Book TWO!

And the saga continues…

In the usually quiet community of Stoney Ridge, the Stoltzfus family has quite a lot to deal with!

From meddling relatives to a Bishop in trouble… there is no end to the drama David must deal with.

The Quieting is an amazing continuation of Suzanne’s series: The Bishop’s Family!

Suzanne has an exceptional skill for dealing with tricky subjects that most authors are hesitant to pen and this book is no different.

A wonderful read. A miraculous story. An unexpected resolution.

Don’t miss this story or the next in this fantastic series.

BRAVO Suzanne!!!

Bestselling Author Delivers the Intrigue and Romance Fans Crave

The Stoltzfus family faces serious problems, both in the church and at home. Everyone in the community expects minister David Stoltzfus to fix things–fast. But David doesn’t work fast. He prefers to wait for God to work in individual hearts. However, even he is left wondering if the solution to their most pressing problem might be a Quieting.

When David’s mother arrives, uninvited, more upheaval is in store. She has matchmaking plans for everyone in the family, including David and her eligible granddaughters–and especially for David’s niece Abigail.

When Abigail stumbles onto a curious connection during her genealogical research, it could help David solve one problem–but will it create another?

Here’s a bit more about The Imposter from Revell:

Katrina Stoltzfus thought she had life and love all figured out: she was going to marry John and live happily ever after. Those plans started to crumble when her father moved the family to Stoney Ridge, then completely collapsed when John decided to marry someone else. Katrina is devastated. How could she have felt so loved, yet been so deceived?

As she struggles to face a future without him, a widow asks for her help to start a new business and Katrina quickly agrees. She needs time to heal her broken heart, to untangle her messy life, to find a purpose. What she doesn’t need is attention from Andy Miller, a farm hand who arrives at the widow’s farm just when help is most needed–and who always seems to say the right thing, and be in the right place, at the right time. Is Andy for real, or too good to be true? Deceived once before, Katrina is determined to keep her feelings in check.

When a cascade of events is set in motion by some surprising information, the little Amish church is turned upside down. Soon, everyone has a stake in the outcome, and the community struggles to find the best response to an imposter in their midst. Can they forgive even the most deceitful deeds?

“Woods Fisher does her Amish research and it shines bright in her latest offering.” —RT Book Reviews 4 Stars
