The Haven by Suzanne Woods Fisher

When Sadie Lapp steps off the bus in Stoney Ridge after being in Ohio for the winter, she is faced with a decision–one that goes against her very essence. Yet it’s the only way she can think of to protect a loved one.

Schoolteacher Gideon Smucker has been crazy about Sadie since boyhood. But his response to her surprising decision undermines his own reputation–and his relationship with Sadie.

College student Will Stoltz is spending the spring at the Lapp farm as a guard for a pair of nesting Peregrine Falcons–courtesy of the Lancaster County Game Warden. Will needs to get his life back on track, but his growing friendship with Sadie threatens his plans.

The lives of these three individuals intertwine, and then unravel as unexpected twists create ripples through the town of Stoney Ridge . . . and through Sadie’s heart.

Once again, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher intrigues and delights with a story that explores the bonds of friendship, family, and true love. Readers will enjoy every surprise in Sadie’s story as they search for the truth hidden within these pages.

Suzanne Woods Fisher lives with her family in the San Francisco Bay Area. She has one husband, four children, one son-in-law, a brand new grand-baby, and a couple of dogs. She graduated from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California.

Suzanne has contracts with Revell for six more books about the Amish, both fiction and non-fiction. She is also the host of “Amish Wisdom·” on toginet.com, a weekly radio program featuring guests who are connected to Simple Living.

In The Haven -- Sadie, Gideon and Will have a very interesting summer, to say the least. Sadie arrived home unannounced, and she has a surprise tucked under her arm that shocks the small Amish community. Instead of giving her the benefit of the doubt, almost everyone jumps to the wrong conclusion, including her special friend Gideon.

Sadie must have a bit of a stubborn streak in her, and she isn't talking.  If Gideon believes the rumors, then she is done with him.  Will, the summer college student, moves into a cabin on the family farm, as he oversees the protection of a nesting family of falcons. Sadie and Will spend a lot of time together over the summer, and only time will tell where their relationship will end.

Once again, Suzanne Woods Fisher has written a novel with captivating characters that are loveable, believable and often humorous. This is the second book in the Stoney Ridge Seasons series, the first being The Keeper. If you love Amish fiction as much as I do, then you will love this series.
