Book Review: The Waiting by Suzanne Woods Fisher
Caleb Zook is dealing with his own grief while trying to raise a family by himself while fending off the match making wiles of his well-meaning aunts.
As Jorie and Caleb become friends and help each other through the pain, a new love begins to grow. Everything is turned upside down when they receive some shocking news that could change everything.
This book was the best book I have read in a while. Because it's the second in a series, it took me a while to get to know everyone. But once I was into it, I was hooked! I loved that even though the characters were Amish, the book focused on their "normalness" rather than their customs. They struggle with things everyone struggles with. You will definitely need a box of tissue for this - I must have spent half the book balling but it was so good! I will definitely be looking for the rest of the series!
Thanks to Revell Publishers for a free copy of this book to review!
