Book Review - The Letters: Book One of The Inn At Eagle Hill series by Suzanne Woods Fisher

About The Book:

Welcome to a place of unconditional love and unexpected blessings

When widow Rose Schrock turns her Amish farmhouse into a bed and breakfast, she expects there might be problems. The reaction of her cantankerous mother-in-law for one. Disapproval from the church for another. But what she doesn't expect is that the guests at the Inn at Eagle Hill will spill their problems into her life and into her heart. She also never expects the kind of help and support she gets from Galen King, the quiet and rugged horse trainer next door. Love, Rose discovers, can bloom in the most unexpected ways.

With inspiration from a true story and her signature plot twists, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to Stoney Ridge for a fresh story of simple pleasures and strong faith in a complex world.

What Others Are Saying:

"I devoured The Letters in one sitting. Suzanne Woods Fisher weaves a cast of authentic characters, real-life problems, and a beautiful setting into a sweet and satisfying story. I can't wait for the second in the series!"—Leslie Gould, Christy Award-winning and bestselling author of Adoring Addie

"Fisher's characters are living the simple life—or trying to, despite the hardships they are facing—and learning how to adjust their way of life without compromising their beliefs. We get a glimpse of life few outsiders are privileged to see, with some surprises, twists and turns."—RT Book Reviews

My Thoughts:

I thoroughly enjoyed this charming and sweet novel.  Fans of Suzanne Woods Fisher will recognize a few characters from her previous "Stoney Ridge" series, but this first book of the "The Inn At Eagle Hill" can be read as a stand-alone novel very easily.

I was very impressed with the character of Rose Schrock - the widowed mother in this story.  She has taken a horrible situation for her family and worked to turn things around for everyone with her brilliant idea of turning the family home into a bed-and-breakfast. I loved her feistiness and her determination to do the best for her family, despite a lot of naysayers around her.

I highly recommend this novel for those who enjoy inspirational fiction, Amish-fiction, and gentle romance.
