about the book....

Welcome to a place of unconditional love and unexpected blessings

When widow Rose Schrock turns her Amish farmhouse into a bed and breakfast, she expects there might be problems. The reaction of her cantankerous mother-in-law for one. Disapproval from the church for another. But what she doesn't expect is that the guests at the Inn at Eagle Hill will spill their problems into her life and into her heart. She also never expects the kind of help and support she gets from Galen King, the quiet and rugged horse trainer next door. Love, Rose discovers, can bloom in the most unexpected ways.

With inspiration from a true story and her signature plot twists, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Stoney Ridge for a fresh story of simple pleasures and strong faith in a complex world.

my review....

I was absolutely excited to return to Stoney Ridge to become acquainted with a new host of characters as I picked up my copy of "The Letters", and I'm happy to report that the novel was all I hoped for! I was first introduced to Fisher's books in "The Keeper", the first book in the Stoney Ridge Seasons series, and since then I haven't been able to get enough of the stories that emerge from her talented pen. The characters that star in "The Letters" are wonderful indeed, and I loved meeting Rose Schrock and her passel of children, along with her acidic-tongue mother-in-law and the talented horse trainer and neighbour Galen King. Fisher has woven together a number of plot elements as she explores the storyline from the perspective of various characters, and the result is an engaging, moving read that at some moments had me smiling and at others had my heart aching with the beauty of what I was watching unfold. The scenes between Rose and her mother-in-law Vera made for some especially tender moments at the end of the book. The romantic love that pursues Rose also made for some wonderful scenes, especially as Rose has to learn to trust again and learn that she is fully worthy to be loved, no matter what.

Fans of Amish fiction will adore "The Letters", and readers who have journeyed to Stoney Ridge in prior books are going to love going back for more! I can't wait to see what's coming next in this engaging series. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
