The Haven - Suzanne Woods Fisher

Summary from Revell Publishing: Once again, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher intrigues and delights with a story that explores the bonds of friendship, family and true love in the second installment of the Stoney Ridge Seasons. Readers will enjoy every surprise in Sadie's story as they search for the truth hidden within these pages.

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.

Sadie Lapp is returning home from spending time at her sister's house when someone leaves a baby at her feet while she was sleeping at the bus station waiting for a ride home.  When she returns home, she is faced with lots of questions, opinions and wrong assumptions.  The community has turned against her since they believe that she is an unwed moother who was sent away to give birth.  But no one will listen to shy little Sadies's true strory.

Will Stolz is living with the Lapp's while he is "bird-sitting" the two falcons who have made this Amish farm their home.  To earn his keep, Will helps out with the farming chores and gets to know the Lapp family, especially Sadie since he has the gift of quieting the young baby.  What will become of Will's relationship with Sadie?  Will the Lapp's ever find out who the mother of this baby is?  Will everyone learn to forgive for their wrongs?

I really enjoyed this second book in the Stoney Ridge series by Suzanne Woods Fisher!  I am looking forward to seeing the next step in the Lapp family's story.  A special thanks to Revell Publishing for allowing me to review this book in advance for them!
Available August 2012 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
