Win a Kindle in The Waiting Book Tour

Waiting, The: A Novel (Lancaster County Secrets)

The Waiting: Book 2 in the Lancaster Secrets Collection

Book 2 in The Lancaster Secrets collection and hot on the heals of the best-selling The Choice, The Waiting, a stand alone story, is a compelling page turner. Jorie King has been waiting for Benjamin Zook to return home to Lancaster County so they can marry. When news arrives that Ben has been killed, Jorie finds comfort in the friendship of his brother Caleb. That friendship ripens into love, and it seems that they are meant to be together. But when the unexpected happens, their worlds are turned upside down once more. Will Jorie trust God to lead her into the arms of a new man?

A multifaceted story about complex people living the simple life. Readers will find themselves transported into the world of the Amish and deeply invested in these wonderful characters.

My Take on the Book:  I'm one of the newest fans of Suzanne Woods Fisher.  This is the 2nd book that I have read (Check out The Amish Proverbs) from her and I'm, again, impresses by her writing style.  The setting of this Contemporary Fiction book is during the Vietnam Conflict and one of their own goes off to war.  I learned a lot about war and the Amish.  

Her characters are extremely realistic!  Each character carried themselves with much wisdom well beyond their stated ages.  You get a sense of each person as if you know them in real life.  The words and actions of the characters stay with you well after you have finished reading the book.  I know I long to read more of the stories that these characters have waiting for us in her future writings in the Lancaster Country Secrets.   
 
The Choice (Lancaster County Secrets, Book 1)This is, by the way, the 2nd book in her series.   It is a stand alone book. I didn't have any problem reading this book without have had read book 1.  I really appreciate authors who do this.  We aren't always fortunate to read a series from the beginning. I do prefer that but it isn't always possible.  I can't wait to get my hands on The Choice, which is the first book!  After reading it I will most likely reread The Waiting!
I really want to tell you more about this book but I can't! You have to pick up the book and read it for yourself!
