Book Review: The Letters by Suzanne Woods Fisher


bookhere are only a few authors of Amish fiction that I enjoy reading and Suzanne Woods Fisher’s books are one of them.  So I was pretty excited to be able to read her first book in a new series,  The Letters (#1 of The Inn at Eagle Hill).  There are several different story lines running throughout this book.  Rose is a widow, living with her mother-in-law and trying to pay off the business debts of her late husband, who got in over his head with a business dealings that went wrong.  After hearing some people talking of needing a place to stay, she invites them to her home, thus giving her the idea of opening a Bed and Breakfast.  

The most intriguing person I found, was a woman who needed an escape, after finding out she has cancer.  On the same day of this diagnosis, her husband tells her he is leaving her.  She does not tell him of her diagnosis.  Though I cannot personally relate to her heartbreaking situations, I could relate to her the most with the emotions of needing time away and needing rest.  

Though I found it difficult at times to keep up with the various story lines, I did enjoy the book, and will look forward to reading the next book in the series.  I also found it interesting that this book was inspired from a true story.


The Letters  is available at your favorite bookseller from Revell,
a division of Baker Publishing Group.

A free copy of this book was provided to me for my personal, truthful and unaltered review.
