Book Review : The Calling

Suzanne Woods Fisher has done it again!  I recently finished up Book #2 in the Inn at Eagle Hill series : The Calling.

TheCalling

I have loved getting to know the Lapp family in The Stoney Ridge series and now seeing them pop up in the Inn at Eagle Hill series has been fun!!  Bethany is the main character in The Calling, she is the daughter of Rose, and sister of Miriam, and they all live in the Inn.

In this story we get to know more about Bethany, and watch her relationship bloom with Jimmy Fisher.   

I have loved all the books by Suzanne Woods Fisher, I think it is because of the heart of these stories is all about family.  You see time and again as different members of the family deal with some situation, the others surround them.  Over and over the relationships are stretched and no matter what they grow.

A sub-story in this book was of the current occupant of the Inn, Geena is a former Youth Pastor getting away before figuring out he future.  Geena has a way with youth, but not a gift of preaching.  I loved seeing her figure out who she was and what her calling really was.

Another favorite part of this series is an on-going line of Bethany’s brother.  We were introduced to him in the first book, and he appears again in this book.  However, we learn more about what sent him into hiding after the death of his father and what lands him behind bars this time.  I suspect we may get to know more about him and his story in the next installment, but we shall see.

Of course, I recommend this book.  I always enjoy my visit to the Amish homes in Ms. Fisher’s books.  I feel encouraged to keep investing in my own family!
