The Haven Blog Tour 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.

MY THOUGHTS-I am personally not a fan of amish type books. To me they are somewhat the same as far as plots, characters, etc. Every once in a while I run across an author who writes a good one that I enjoy and it is different. Suzanne Woods Fisher is one of those authors. I always request her books when I can. They are not really exciting or anything, but they make for a nice slow read on those days you feel like drifting away:)

I enjoyed being able to see many of the characters from the first book in the Stoney Ridge series. One thing I found interesting in this book was how quickly people jump to conclusions. A young lady, Sadie, returns with a surprise and everyone in the community automatically thinks the worst of her. It is amazing how people are, and yet we are all too often the same. Makes me stop and think before coming to the obvious answer now!

Overall a good book that is a slower read. Can't wait to read the next book in the series. Enjoyed this one!

I received a copy of this book for my review purposes. I did not receive any monetary compensation. All thoughts are 100% mine.
