Book Review: The Letters

The Letters: Suzanne Woods Fisher
With a hot cup of tea I snuggled up with my blanket and Suzanne Woods Fishers
latest book The Letters.  We begin the story with the recently widowed Rose
Schrock trying to piece her life back together.  Life has not turned out at all how
she anticipated,  having to move back into the Old Order Amish lifestyle after a
series of life changing events. Losing her husband, dealing with the shame of
his death, going bankrupt, and moving in with her mother in law, has all but set
her world to spinning. Rose needs to come up with a plan, one that will allow
her to repay the sins of her husband, and also provide for her children’s future.
After praying for guidance and direction, Rose happens upon a couple in need
of a place to stay for the evening, birthing the idea of an Inn at Eagle Hill.
The interplay of relationships make this story multilayered and interesting.
There is the obvious banter of a mother and her children, the constant reproach
from her mother in law, and a touch of romantic interest with the gentleman
next door. Galen King, is an honest, hardworking horse trainer.
Can Rose ever
trust again, and will she dare to love again?
I give this novel 4 stars, and look forward to the next book in the series!
