about the book....

Love does extraordinary things to people . . . 

In a single, impulsive act, Naomi King chooses to follow her heart into unfamiliar territory, jeopardizing all that she holds dear. If anyone finds out what she's up to, she's in for trouble. But when it comes to Tobe Schrock, Naomi believes it's worth it. 

But it all comes crashing down when a young woman arrives at the Inn at Eagle Hill with an unexpected delivery for Tobe. Add a guest at the inn with a curious talent and a genealogist who is more interested in modern-day Schrocks than in old family trees, and evidence starts to mount that points to something sinister at work. Or someone. 

my review....

Suzanne Woods Fisher excels at keeping her readers on their toes, and "The Revealing" is no exception, as it is filled with twists and turns that kept me glued to the pages! This book brings things full circle, as we learn more about Tobe and his past choices and about his father's death, and we watch the different characters grow in profound ways as they face down trials. The most amazing change occurs in Naomi, who starts off the series as somewhat of a mousy character, and yet by the end of this book is quite the strong woman indeed! I must admit that I love seeing those types of transformations, and Fisher does it in a natural and believable manner. All of the characters seem to live and breathe with life, and I so enjoyed getting to know them over these three books. I'm sure it sounds as if I feel these characters are real...and in some ways it does feel that way! My only complaint is that things are left somewhat hanging with Jimmy, a character I have admired since his appearance in the Stoney Ridge series. All I can say is that there had better be another appearance from Jimmy in a future Fisher book (hint, hint). But for many of the other characters, things resolve in a highly pleasing manner, as they experience a chance at love and at new beginnings, discovering how to become the wonderful people God has created them to be. I walk away from this novel having enjoyed the deep, godly wisdom that permeates the book, calling us to love the unloveable, to give of ourselves in a selfless manner, reminding us that "Love...does extraordinary things to people". The world would be a better place if we all loved with the kind of love we are shown in this book!

"The Inn at Eagle Hill" series has been given a permanent place on my shelf, because I plan to read these books again and again over the coming years. I thoroughly enjoyed "The Revealing" and award it 5 out of 5 stars.
