The Letters by Suzanne Woods Fisher

About The Letters:
Book one in Suzanne's brand new series; The Inn at Eagle Hill.

Rose Schrock is a plain woman with a simple plan. Determined to find a way to support her family and pay off her late husband's debts, she sets to work to convert the basement of her Amish farmhouse into an inn. While her family, especially her cranky mother-in-law, is unhappy with Rose's big idea, her friend and neighbor, Galen King, supports the decision and he helps with the conversion. As Rose finalizes preparations for visitors, she prays. She asks God to bless each guest who stays at the Inn at Eagle Hill. As the first guest arrives and settles in, Rose is surprised to discover that her entire family is the one who receives the blessings, in the most unexpected ways. And she's even more surprised when that guest decides to play matchmaker for Galen King.

With her signature plot twists combined with gentle Amish romance, bestselling author Suzanne Woods Fisher invites readers back to Stoney Ridge for fresh stories of simple pleasures despite the complexity of life. Fisher's tale of God's providence and provision will delight her fans and create many new ones. Welcome to the Inn at Eagle Hill.

Margie's Comments: I finished reading The Letters by Suzanne Woods Fisher last night before going to bed. So I've been mulling over what to write. As always, Fisher creates a world peopled with very interesting characters with problems that affect each of us sometime in our lives. The Letters tells the story of how the Inn at Eagle Hill began and got its name. Fisher weaves together several story lines, intersecting at crucial points, each character learning a valuable life lesson and growing closer to the Lord in their lives as a result. The only "negative" I have is why the this title—and that most likely is out of the author's hand. Yes, there are letters written to Rose after the news of her guest is made known all over the country. But she turns the answering over to her younger daughter and has little to do with them. And those don't even start until at least the halfway point in the book. So the title—in my opinion—doesn't really fit the story. However, it won't keep me from looking for and enjoying the next book in this series. A truly enjoyable read.
