The Calling


     Book Summary
Twenty-year-old Bethany Schrock is restless. Her love life has derailed, her faith hangs by a thread, and she is spending the incredibly hot summer days wading through a lifetime’s accumulation of junk at the home of five ancient Amish sisters. About the only thing that holds her interest is the spirited and dangerously handsome Jimmy Fisher–and he seems bent on irritating her to no end.

When the sly old sisters and a guest at the Inn get Bethany involved in running the local soup kitchen and starting a community garden, she suddenly finds herself wondering, Shootfire! How did that happen? Despite her newfound purposefulness, a gnawing emptiness about a childhood mystery continues to plague her. Encouraged by Jimmy Fisher, she will seek out the answers she craves–and uncover a shocking secret that will break her heart, heal it, and point her to love.

Bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher delivers her trademark twists, turns, and tender romance in this delightful and exciting visit to the deceptively quiet community of Stoney Ridge

My Review

This book is the second one in the this series. However it can be read as a stand alone novel. I have read several books by this author and liked them. While I did like this book as well. I just did not love it as much. I really wanted to love this book as the story was fun. I loved the Amish Sisters, found Jimmy charming, and Bethany to be a bit of a firecracker so with all of this you would think that I would blasted through this book but I struggled. I never found that deep, emotional connection that I was looking for with the characters. Still I do enjoy reading this author's books and will read more of her books.
