The Letters - Suzanne Woods Fisher

Rose Schrock is a plain woman with a simple plan. Determined to find a way to support her family and pay off her late husband's debts, she sets to work to convert the basement of her Amish farmhouse into an inn. While her family, especially her cranky mother-in-law, is unhappy with Rose's big idea, her friend and neighbor, Galen King, supports the decision and he helps with the conversion. As Rose finalizes preparations for visitors, she prays. She asks God to bless each guest who stays at the Inn at Eagle Hill. As the first guest arrives and settles in, Rose is surprised to discover that her entire family is the one who receives the blessings, in the most unexpected ways. And she's even more surprised when that guest decides to play matchmaker for Galen King.

With her signature plot twists combined with gentle Amish romance, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites readers back to Stoney Ridge for fresh stories of simple pleasures despite the complexity of life. Fisher's tale of God's providence and provision will delight her fans and create many new ones. Welcome to the Inn at Eagle Hill.

Rose Schrock's life has had so many bad things happen to her lately. Her husband's death, failure of his business, her step-son running away and also having to move in with her mother-in-law and returning to the the Old Order Amish traditions.  Rose is determined to pay back her husband's debt so to make money she turns her basement into an inn.  She learns a lot from her first guest and her guest learns from her about faith, love and forgiveness.  Will she be able to balance her life?  Will she be able to get over the guilt left behind by her late husband?  Will she be able to move on and love again?

I really enjoyed this book from Suzanne Woods Fisher.  I love that the characters fromt he Stoney Ridge series are in this series too!  But it is not necessary to have read that series in order to understand and enjoy this one.  I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series, The Calling, soon!  A special thanks to Net Galley and Revell for allowing me to review this book.
