The Search by Suzanne Woods Fisher

Fifteen years ago, Lainey O'Toole made a split-second decision. She couldn't have known that her choice would impact so many. Now in her mid-twenties, she is poised to go to culinary school when her car breaks down in Stoney Ridge, the very Amish town in which her long-reaching decision was made, forcing her to face the shadowed past.

Bess Reihl is less than thrilled to be spending the summer at Rose Hill Farm with her large and intimidating grandmother, Bertha. It quickly becomes clear that she is there to work the farm--and work hard. The labor is made slightly more tolerable by the time it affords Bess to spend with the handsome hired hand, Billy Lapp. But he only has eyes for a flirty and curvaceous older girl.

Lainey's and Bess's worlds are about to collide and the secrets that come to light will shock them both.

Beautifully written, The Search is a skillfully woven story that takes readers through unexpected twists and turns on the long country road toward truth. Fans both old and new will find themselves immersed in this heartwarming--and surprising--tale of young love, forgiveness, and coming to grips with the past.

My Review - Oh how Suzanne Woods Fisher is such a wonderful author! Although I didn't like this book more then the one before it. I did love the fact that we saw glimpses of Maggie, Caleb, and Jorie. The little tid bit about Jorie in church with a toddler and baby made me smile. I also liked Lainey's story and how she just knew what God wanted for her and her life and she stuck with what God wanted her to do instead of what others wanted. More Christians should do that - me included! Overall this series is awesome and I can't wait to read more of Fisher's books.
