The Quieting

It was a well-laid plan--but it wasn't her plan . . . It's all her grandmother's fault. For the last few months, Abigail Stoltzfus has helped her father with his genealogical research, hoping that breaking through a client's brick wall would also break his melancholy. But now her intrusive grandmother has set her sights on marrying off Abigail and insists she come to Stoney Ridge, where there is a plethora of eligible bachelors.

Except that Mammi is mistaken. There are no eligible bachelors in Stoney Ridge, barring one, and he's all wrong. Dane Glick has the wrong last name and the wrong relatives--including the bishop who is at odds over a church matter with Abigail's uncle, minister David Stoltzfus.

As the conflict grows, setting family against family, it's becoming clear that the path to a solution may lead to a Quieting--a removal of a church leader. But for which one? And when Abigail stumbles onto a curious connection during her genealogical research, it could help David solve one problem--but will it create another?

Review by Blanche Mancuso

I have read several of these books by author, Suzanne Woods Fisher and absolutely love this author's books. The author keeps you turning the pages while she unfolds a story unlike any other Amish novel.

This is the second book in this series and once again David Stoltzfus and Brother Glick are at odds due to some information David has found in old Bibles and books. In the Amish community the Bishop is to be obeyed. Abigail Stoltzfus is sent to help sort things out but will she become involved with the "wrong" side?

You need to read this fascinating story of David Stoltzfus and Brother Glick to discover if the problems they are faced with will be solved or if it will create more problems. Since I have read several books by this author I can officially state that I am a huge fan of Amish stories. As well as the people of Stoney Ridge. You need to check this author's books out as you will not regret it.
